Why Organic Hemp Seed Oil
Kōaka's Organic Moisturising Serum is suitable for men and women of all ages. It is designed for hydrating and nourishing our skin through this completely natural and unrefined compound known as cold pressed hemp seed oil.
Kōaka extract our hemp seed oil by cold pressing New Zealand grown hemp seed. It's a clear, yellowy-green oil with a light nutty/earthy fragrance.
Hemp seed oil deeply moisturises the skin without clogging pores. This not only allows for the hydration of dry skin but also helps regulate natural oil production from our skin which may be overproducing and causing blocked pores.
It leaves no residue and is absorbed quickly into the skin.
Hemp seed oil also provides a good supply of active botanicals Vitamin B6, C and D and antioxidants (Vitamin E), carotene (precursor to Vitamin A), phytosterols, phospholipids and a number of minerals including calcium, magnesium, sulfur, potassium, phosphorus, along with modest amounts of iron and zinc. Hemp seed oil also provides a good source of chlorophyll.
Hempseed oil is over 80% polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) with a 3:1 ratio of omega 6 to omega 3 which is considered optimal for human health.
The oil has high amounts of the omega 6 metabolite GLA which is shown to calm and sooth aggravated skin.
It is also a great source of vitamin E - a powerful antioxidant and essential for maintaining healthy skin.
Apply products containing hemp seed oil as needed to hydrate, protect and nourish your skin or just as part of your daily routine, the best time is right after a warm shower when the skin is clean and fresh.
