The Effect Hemp Seed Oil Has on the Skin

Hemp seed oil is a valuable source of Omega-6 and Omega-3 fatty acids, phytosterols, vitamins, chlorophyll, and a rare source of Omega-6 gamma-linolenic acid – ultra-high fatty acid content has a positive effect on the skin and relieves allergic reactions.

Cosmetic products that contain hemp seed oil have soothing and restorative effects; essential fatty acids increase the elasticity of the skin and help it retain moisture that we lose daily as a result of UV exposure, dry air, and use of cleansers. Skin care products containing hemp seed oil are ideal for kids as well as for people with gentle, sensitive, and problematic skin. Hemp seed oil also acts as UV protection– the sun protection factor (SPF) of hemp seed oil is 6.

Naturally Active Ingredients Found in LUMI Products

All LUMI products contain bioactive substances that have significant effect on Your skin:

hyaluronic acid (HA) – is one of the most important macromolecules of the human body and is absolutely vital to the creation and maintenance of healthy skin. HA is surrounding our skin cells and is able to bind thousands of times its molecular weight in water; in essence it is our skin’s natural water retention complex. HA is allergy-free, does not irritate the skin, helps to protect the skin from UV-light.
lactic acid (LA) – our body’s natural skin moisturizer making it ideal for individuals wishing to avoid over-drying and skin dehydration. Being natural to the human body, LA dramatically improves the results of the products. LA gently exfoliates the outer layer of skin, helping to reveal a softer, younger and vibrant looking complexion, and speeding up the rate of cell turnover. Lactic acid is superior to all other AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids) at increasing hyaluronic acid deposition in the skin, and therefore is the AHA of choice for increasing the skin’s natural moisture content, critical in the treatment of aging skin. In the deeper layers, beneath the skin’s surface, new collagen and elastin will be stimulated and the skin will actually become thicker, tighter and more firm. LA is marketed as a powerful ingredient that helps reduce acne breakouts. Important to keep the right PH-level balance.
vitamin E – helps to neutralize harmful free radicals by protecting and strengthening cell membrans and extending cells life span. E-vitamin improves oxygen metabolism of skin cells and encourages agents absorption. In skin care products E-vitamin helps to avoid skins aging, it smooths and softens skins texture. Also acts as preservative in natural skin care.
patented moisturizing complex that according to studies significantly improves the skin
moisture content with strong benefits found after 2 weeks of application. After an application period of 4 weeks the skin hydration increases by approximately 80% related to the vehicle. The effect even stays for a minimum of 4 days after the end of the treatment without any further application of the tested formulation. In addition, the complex improves the elasticity of the skin and smoothness of the skin by reducing the amount of old skin scales. As a consequence the skin’s appearance becomes softer.
