What benefits does Hemp Protein have on your skin?

Hemp seeds and oil are known to have many wonderful benefits on the skin whether that’s from consuming hemp through pill form, applying hemp seed oil to your skin or consuming hemp in a protein powder form. At ed&i we opted for a hemp protein powder as we believe it can be easily incorporated into our consumers day-to-day lives.

How is our Hemp Protein Powder made?

Hemp protein powder is made from hemp seeds. The seeds have been pressed to remove their oils then refined into the softest powder form.

Our hemp protein powder is full of essential fats and vitamins. In fact, hemp protein contains all 20 amino acids, including all 9 essential amino acids. Unlike most plant proteins, hemp is a quality source for amino acids.

Our Hemp Protein is completely free of Gluten and Dairy.

Benefits of Hemp Protein on the skin:

Helps relieve skin conditions i.e eczema and acne scarring

Hemp seed oil is high in Omega 3, 6 and 9, all of which help repair the skin barrier which then forms a seal over the skin to help keep the moisture in your skin. Evidence proves that molecules and chemicals found in hemp oil may be beneficial for skin health. Hemp Oil is known to help treat inflammatory skin conditions, such as eczema and psoriasis, acne scarring and dry skin.

These fatty acids help hydrate and soothe inflamed skin.

Helps reduces inflammation

The fatty acids found in Hemp oil also contain anti-inflammatory compounds that are known to help reduce inflammation in the skin, decrease dryness and itchiness and help aid pain. 

Helps strengthens Hair

As stated above, Hemp Protein is loaded with Omega-3 fatty acids, Omega-6 and Omega-9. These healthy fats help support healthy hair growth. Omega-3 is also known to add sheen and gloss to the hair while research has also shown that Omega-3 can help to reverse hair loss.

Helps strengthen nails and helps growth

Massaging hemp oil into your hands and nails is known to help strengthen your nails and cuticles to help prevent dryness and cracking. Taking a form of hemp supplement also helps with nail growth and health.

Helps Condition your scalp

Hemp protein naturally conditions the scalp. Because Hemp oil is so rich in Vitamin E and essential fatty acids it helps to sooth the scalp and reduce itchiness and flakiness.

Helps Reduce risk of infection

Hemp Oil also contains antimicrobial compounds and antioxidants that can help destroy microbes, such as bacteria, viruses and fungi. Because Hemp helps strengthen the skins natural barrier, it is harder for microbes to enter the skin and cause and infection and/or disease.
