You use Cannabis?! 😮
Technically yes, we use Hemp Seed Oil, also known as "Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil".
Did you know?
At Balm House we use a large selection of natural oils to craft our beard care products. Each of our complex recipes consists of a wide variety of oils that have been specially selected for their skin care qualities. One of these key ingredients we use is virgin Hemp seed oil which is extracted from the Cannabis Sativa plant.
Will I get high?
Don’t worry applying this to your skin will not get you high as Virgin Hemp Seed Oil is extracted only from the cannabis sativa seeds, not the part of the plant required to create the active ingredient Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
The Hemp Seed Oil is created using an extraction process called cold pressing. This is the safest process as it doesn’t involve any solvents and also ensures any impurities are filtered away and the best properties of the seeds are saved.
So why do we use it in our beard oil?
We use Hemp Seed Oil in our beard care products along with a selection of other carrier oils such as Vitamin E to form the base of our beard oil. There are many known skin care benefits associated with Hemp Seed Oil.
Let’s take a closer look at the benefits:
- Can help the fight against wrinkles
- Good for hair boosts texture
High in essential fatty acids, Omega 6 and Omega 3, Hemp Seed Oil can be used to increase immunity, counteract ageing skin and improve cardiovascular health. Several studies show that the Linoleic Acid present in Hemp Seed Oil can slow down the ageing process and fight psoriasis.
Is it safe to put on my skin?
No need to worry our specially formulated recipes have been certified with a CPSR (Cosmetic Product Safety Report) which adheres to European cosmetic law.
We’re pleased to say that the 100% Natural Hemp Seed Oil we use is registered with the Vegan Society.
