Hemp Seed Oil - Why The LGC Co. swears by it

Hemp Seed Oil - Why The LGC Co. swears by it

In recent years, there has been a growing awareness of the importance of natural, sustainable ingredients in skincare products. As consumers become more conscious of the impact of their choices on the environment and future generations, the demand for eco-friendly and ethically sourced skincare options has surged. Among these, hemp seed oil has emerged as a standout ingredient, with many studies and scientific evidence to back its effectiveness and celebrated for its myriad benefits for skin health, particularly in managing eczema.

So why does The LGC Co. choose hemp seed oil as its hero ingredient featuring in nearly all of our products?

First and foremost, hemp seed oil is renowned for its optimal ratios of omega-3, omega-6, and omega-9 fatty acids. These essential fatty acids play a crucial role in maintaining the skin's natural barrier function, helping to lock in moisture and prevent dryness, a common concern for individuals with eczema-prone skin. By nourishing the skin from within, hemp seed oil helps to alleviate the symptoms of eczema, including itching, redness, and irritation, promoting healthier skin.

Furthermore, hemp seed oil is a rich source of phytocannabinoids, naturally occurring compounds found in the hemp plant. These phytocannabinoids interact with the body's endocannabinoid system, which plays a key role in regulating various physiological processes, including inflammation and immune response. By modulating these pathways, hemp seed oil can help to reduce inflammation associated with eczema, providing relief from flare-ups and promoting skin healing- our main aim here at The LGC Co. 

In addition to its impressive fatty acid profile and phytocannabinoid content, hemp seed oil is also prized for its antioxidant properties. Antioxidants help to neutralise free radicals, harmful molecules that can damage the skin and accelerate the aging process. By incorporating hemp seed oil into our skincare formulations, we harness the power of antioxidants to protect the skin from environmental stressors and promote a hydrated, radiant complexion.

Beyond its benefits for skin health, hemp seed oil aligns seamlessly with our commitment to sustainability and environmental responsibility. Unlike conventional skincare ingredients derived from fossil fuels or harvested through unsustainable practices, hemp seed oil is sourced from a renewable and eco-friendly crop. By choosing hemp seed oil, we not only prioritise the well-being of our customers but also support the health of our planet for future generations 💚
