Hemp seed oil
Organically grown hemp seed pressed oil with the perfect balance of Omega 6 and Omega 3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (3: 1). Hemp seed oil makes it indispensable for both internal and external consumption with GLA or Omega 6 Gammalinolenic Acid. GLA relieves skin irritation, itching and dehydration and is also necessary for the production of hormones.
Pure 99.97% Cannabidiol (CBD) produced by chromatographic isolation from organic cannabis biomass works effectively thanks to the endocannabinoid receptors in the human body. The endocannabinoid system can be described as the messenger of information flow between our immune system and the central nervous system, and an integral part of human physiology is to balance this function. This equilibrium, or homeostasis, is a condition in which a stable internal environment is maintained despite external changes. Homeostasis helps maintain health at every level, from the micro level within the cell to the macro level in organs – endocannabinoids play a major role in our survival and adaptability in changing and potentially hostile environments. The skin is the largest organ in the human body, and endocannabinoid receptors, which are present in all layers of the skin as well as in the internal organs, help balance the entire body when applied to the skin.
Food-grade plant-derived lecithin, or phosphatidylcholine, is a lipid compound that regulates the movement of lipids in the body. Lecithin is similar in structure to fats and is an important component of cell membranes. It helps to form a complete cell membrane and facilitates fluid movement within and outside the cell. Lecithin is an important nutrient for nerve cells and therefore promotes memory and concentration processes. In addition, lecithin helps maintain normal blood cholesterol levels, improves overall skin condition and even stops hair loss. Lecithin is also the main component of the meninges, supplying oxygen to the muscles and nerves.
In September 2019, Redox Biology published a review of a recent study by researchers in Spain and Scotland on the molecular effects of CBD on epidermal cells. The research was co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund and the EU Ministry of Economic Affairs and Competitiveness (MINECO). According to the researchers, CBD has attracted great attention worldwide due to its therapeutic potential, but so far the mechanism of action of CBD in different skin cell types has not yet been fully understood.
“The results of this study demonstrated that CBD regulates, among other processes, the major lines in human keratinocytes involved in skin development and differentiation of keratinocytes and epidermal cells.”
