Hemp Seed Butter
Hemp seed is an oil-rich in omega fatty acids, nutrients and minerals, making it an excellent, nourishing oil for cosmetic application. Hemp seed oil is perfect for most skin types as it can moisturise without clogging your pores. It can help with skin inflammation and redness by regulating the skin's function. The essential fatty acids in Hemp Seed Oil are very similar to our skin’s natural lipids (fats), meaning that it’s perfect for skin. Hemp Seed Oil can help reduce fine lines and wrinkles as well as prevent signs of ageing. The linoleic acid and oleic acids found in hemp oil can’t be produced by the body but can play a crucial role in skin health and anti-ageing. It contains omega-6 fatty acids such as gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), which acts as a powerful anti-inflammatory while simultaneously encouraging skin growth and new cell generation.

When adding butters to creams and lotions, it might be necessary to gently warm them until the texture can be incorporated into the final product. Using a hand blender, create a vortex with your cream or lotion and drizzle your melted butter to incorporate fully. In addition to soaps, the general rule of thumb is 1 tablespoon per pound or 15 g/k. As with most raw materials, results may vary, so we strongly recommend small, lab-scale batches prior to any commercial manufacturing.
