Hemp Seed Oil Cannabis sativa has a typical green colour and a what I describe as a nutty, grassy flavour and it is what gives our hemp moisturiser it's slightly greeny tinge. But don't freak out, it's ever so slightly green plus it soaks in so doesn't leave you looking like the incredible hulk.
Hemp is not only great for your skin but has awesome nutritional value too. With 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; they've been too refined and so are lacking health giving properties.
Here at Verissima we are extremely picky about our hemp oil.
We source a Certified Organic Hemp Seed Oil to make our hemp moisturiser, one that has not been refined, keeping it real.
Not only will this oil be used in our Hemp Moisturiser but also in our Hemp Body Lotion. Your whole body can reap the benefits of such a pure, therapeutic oil.
