Are You Using Hemp Seed Oil In Your Skincare Routine?

I feel like I blinked and suddenly everyone in LA was feeding CBD oil to their dogs and adding it to lattes - well, that's what I gather from Instagram anyway. So why the sudden rise in the popularity of cannabis-derived ingredients?

Well, all the way over here in Australia, it's hemp seed oil that's really making a splash, not CBD. Both extracts are derived from the cannabis plant, however hemp seed oil comes from the seeds of the hemp plant only, while CBD comes from the actual plant and does contain a small percentage of THC.

What’s So Good About Hemp Seed Oil?

Produced using a special cold press extraction method, hemp seed oil boasts a high concentration of omega fatty acids, and as a result, has hydrating and anti-inflammatory benefits for the skin. It’s also non-comedogenic so it can be used topically on acne-prone skin, and to fight the signs of ageing. So what products can we find this ingredient in?


Glowtown Hemp Seed Face Oil hydrates and nourishes the skin, protects it from free radical damage, brightens and evens out the complexion and promotes healing. Ideal for all skin types, including blemish-prone, the formula leaves the skin feeling balanced and comfortable with a smoother texture.
