HEMP SEED OIL FOR ECZEMA:
Some people refer to hemp oil as hemp seed oil or full-spectrum hemp oil, but the products are different.
Manufacturers produce hemp seed oil by compressing hemp seeds rather than the leaves and flowers. Hemp seed oil does not contain any CBD, which is the main active component in full-spectrum hemp oils.
Hemp oil, especially hemp seed oil, is rich in unsaturated fats such as linoleic acid, γ-linolenic acid, and α-linolenic acid.
These three fatty acids may help improve skin structure by helping the skin retain moisture. They also have a beneficial effect on dry, rough skin and can influence the fluidity of cell membranes and transport of electrolytes.
A 2017 study found that applying 0.5 cm3 of an emulsion that contained hemp seed oil helped moisturize the dehydrated skin of some participants.
Hemp oil also contains omega-3 and 6 fatty acids, and people with omega deficiencies can develop rough, scaly skin.
Hemp oil contains several compounds with oil-reducing, anti-inflammatory, and antimicrobial properties that may help improve acne vulgaris.
Hemp oil contains potent anti-inflammatory compounds, such as fatty acids, antioxidants, and CBD, that may help reduce symptoms associated with inflammatory skin conditions, such as skin dryness, itchiness, and pain.
A 2014 reviewTrusted Source concluded that applying hemp oil may benefit people with:
Hemp oil contains antimicrobial compounds and antioxidants that can help destroy microbes, such as viruses, bacteria, and fungi, that cause disease.
It also contains compounds that help strengthen the skin’s natural barrier, making it harder for microbes to enter the skin and cause infection or disease.
Hemp contains both α-linolenic acid and linoleic acid, which help repair UV skin damage Trusted Sourceby increasing the removal of melanin.
Melanin is the name for a broad group of natural skin pigments that give the skin’s upper layer its color.
Both α-linolenic acid and linoleic acid can also help reduce hyperpigmentation, or excessive skin darkening, that tends to occur with sun exposure, by suppressing the production of melanin.
We all know the benefits of shea and mango butter for skin and how important are natural fat rich butters in healing our troubled skin.
ESSENTIAL OILS FOR ECZEMA AND TROUBLED SKIN:
In spite of the promising research, essential oils may be risky for people with eczema and atopic dermatitis. “It's important to be careful which essential oil is used, as some can irritate the skin and have the potential to make atopic dermatitis worse.
We had to be careful in choosing our essential oils for this body butter as these potent medicinal oils can be harmful if not used properly so we decided not to blend 2 oils rather than go for just proven beneficial one essential oil geranium and be at just 0.5% to be extremely safe.
Known for its astringent, antiseptic, styptic, deodorant, hemostatic, vermifuge properties, the sweet-smelling geranium essential oil has earned accolades in eczema treatment, too. Best of all, it effectively balances the sebum secretion and soothes the dry, scarred skin.
