The EFA (Essential Fatty Acids) linoleic acid found in Hemp seed oil, and its metabolite gamma-linolenic acid, has been proven to have therapeutic effects on the skin. Hemp seedoil contains 50%-60% linoleic acid and also contains GLA (Gamma-Linolenic Acids). The profile of the EFA found in Hemp seed closely resembles the skin's natural lipids, and therefore neutralizes the effects of dehydration, and thereby protects against dry skin.
These products made out of hemp seeds are legal in over 35 countries worldwide including the United States, Canada, Great Britain, Germany and France. Hemp seed (non-viable), hemp seed oil and hemp derivatives can be legally imported, sold and consumed in the USA.
