Hemp seed oil is often referred to as hemp oil and is a cannabis-based product. It is produced by cold pressing hemp seeds which are found on the cannabis and hemp plants. It can be found in 2 formats: Refined and unrefined. 

Hemp oil is often unrefined and tends to be a light green colour, with a nutty aroma, and its use in skincare is no new trend. Refined hemp oil is also available, and comes as a clear, odourless oil. Refined Hemp Oil is not as good for skin as unrefined.

What is a Comedogenic Oil?

A comedogenic oil is any oil that is too heavy for a person’s skin, effectively blocking your pores and being unsuitable for the vast majority of skin types.

Comedones clogged pores causes blackheads and whiteheads, which can lead to acne. Many standard skincare products used comedogenic oils, which may be the root cause of your skin issues. 

 All oils that are used in skincare will have a comedogenic rating between 0 and 5, with 0 being the best.

What Oils to avoid?

Acne is a skin disorder most people are familiar with, and it tends to flare up at any point in life. Multiple reasons can cause acne, but one of the more common and treatable causes is excess sebum production 

When considering using hemp oil for treating acne, it’s a hugely beneficial oil thanks to it being full of rich, fatty acids, which can help prevent inflammation and help balance the skin, both of which are contributing factors to Acne. 
Hemp is undergoing huge studies now for its skin benefits, with one study from the Journal of Clinical Investigation showing that hemp oil can help reduce sebum production, which is a huge part of why some people suffer from acne.

Eczema is a group of skin disorders that causes painful, red, itchy skin, that turns dry and flaky. Eczema is also quite common, affecting between 10 - 20 % of infants. 

Hemp oil can be hugely beneficial for treating skin disorders such as eczema thanks to its many wonderful properties such as its anti-inflammatory compounds, antioxidants, and its huge amount of fatty acids.

The combination of all of these compounds can help reduce skin itchiness, dryness and pain, without clogging pores! 

A study done in 2014 by Pub MD and published in the National Library of Medicine concluded that Hemp Oil may be a suitable treatment for all types of eczema, alongside other skin disorders.



Psoriasis is an inflammatory autoimmune condition that affects the skin and damages epidermal propagation. It causes patches of red inflamed skin, accompanied by silver dry flakes, and can be extremely painful. 

Hemp Oil is full of omega fatty acids, containing more than 75% omega 3 and omega 6. In addition to that, Hemp Oil also contains gamma-linolenic acid, which means it is higher in nutrients than other seed oils and even fish oil!

Several studies have been done to show the benefits of having plenty of omegas in a body as a way of helping treat Psoriasis.
