With our new Shampoo Bars we are bringing more hemp seed oil products to our offerings. Hemp is an amazing product that you may have already learned something about, so we will skim over some of the plant’s history.
Hemp seed oil does not contain THC of any quantity to matter. Although the plant is related to Marijuana, it is has not been cultivated for any other purpose than it’s plant fibers and now the oil the seed can produce.
That oil, like many plant based oils, has amazing properties for skin and hair. Some oils are better than others depending upon the ratio of fatty acid types. Hemp seeds have about a 3:1 ratio of omega-6 to omega-3, which is considered in the optimal range for skin and hair.
Studies have shown that using hemp seed oil on people with eczema may improve blood levels of essential fatty acids. It may also relieve dry skin, improve itchiness and reduce the need for skin medication. These points have not been researched by the FDA.
We first introduced Hemp Seed Oil in a Beard Oil formula for those with nut allergies. We later added it to a hair conditioner to boost it’s intensity as a conditioner. We have since discontinued the Beard Oil formula due to lack of interest, but we have looked for new ways to introduce the oil in other products. When seeking out a formula for our Shampoo Bars we felt Hemp Seed Oil soap was the ideal universal soap base. It presents a solid platform that we can easily adjust to craft specialized variations for specific hair needs.
Our Shampoo Bars are launching this month after we debut them at our next Pop-Up. We are extremely excited about what these products are going to offer!
