Yaoh Hemp Seed Oil Shower Gel combines the moisturising and rejuvenating qualities of organic hemp seed oil with essential oils of rosemary, lavender and peppermint to create an invigorating and refreshing shower gel that is vegan, free from sodium lauryl sulphate, parabens, harmful substances and unnecessary chemical additives. Not tested on animals.
In this blog we explore the numerous benefits that hemp seed oil has for your skin. From using shower gels and soaps, to moisturisers and lotions containing hemp seeds, there are lots of ways that you can benefit from the amazing natural properties of hemp seed oil.
Yaoh products are consistently winning awards for their ethical and environmentally focused approach to their products. They've been awarded the gold star from WWF for 'Meeting or even exceeding' their environmental standards, they've also been awarded "best buy" from Ethical Consumer magazine 4 times. In an effort to constantly improve their packaging, Yaoh have now moved to a natural sugarcane based "biopolymer" for their shampoo, conditioner and shower gel bottles.
Hemp shower gel products have incredible moisturising benefits for your skin, combating dryness and regulating oil production to leave you with soft, nourished and perfectly moisturised skin.
Using Hemp seed oil is a great way to achieve soft, smooth and hydrated skin. Hemp seed oil prevents moisture loss on a physiological level and doesn’t merely "coat" the skin like other oils. It contains the ideal ratio of Omegas 3 & 6. Hemp so closely matches our own skin's lipids, it is able to penetrate inside our cells and lubricate the surface between them, thus bringing the EFAs into the body. For this reason EFAs have been proven to play a preventative role in skin ageing and a healthy moisture balance.
Thanks to its high amount of polyunsaturated essential fatty acids (linoleic and linolenic acids), Hemp seed oil has excellent anti-inflammatory qualities. It can help to relieve conditions such as acne, psoriasis and eczema as well as healing skin lesions, balancing dry skin and combating skin inflammations.
