Gwenyth Paltrow has called it “‘the hero ingredient of the future”, while Kristen Bell has also voiced her support.
So what is it about the oil from the little green bud that has won so many fans?
Well, first of all, it has anti-inflammatory properties which helps to calm the skin. It also creates a protective coating to stop moisture loss.
Skin health and elasticity is further supported by hemp’s rich antioxidant properties and essential fatty acids.
Working in unison, the result is the minimisation of fine lines, wrinkles and the signs of ageing, while stressed, dehydrated and dull skin is given a youthful glow.
