Why is our Hemp Body Lotion a bit green in colour? Is that normal?
Yes it’s very normal. High quality Hemp Seed Oil has a deep green colour and will impart that colour into our lotion.
Hemp Seed Oil, Cannabis sativa has a typical green colour and a what I describe as a nutty, grassy flavour. It’s really good for so many things, not only for your skin. Because of this we not only use it in our Hemp Body Lotion but when making salads, smoothies, whenever possible really.
With it’s high concentration of Omega 3 and Omega 6, along with GLA (gamma-linolenic acid), it contains anti-oxidants, protein, carotene, phytosterols, phospholipids, as well as a number of minerals including calcium, magnesium, sulfur, potassium, iron, zinc, and phosphorus. Hemp is a bit of a super food.
Some hemp oils on the market lack that really super green colour. This to me indicates a refined oil, lacking health giving properties and we won’t use them in our Hemp Body Lotion.
Here at Verissima we are extremely picky about our hemp oil. We source a Certified Organic Hemp Seed Oil that has not been refined, keeping it real.
