Prone to acne and wondering about the Oil in all the Hemp Seed Oil in our skin care formulations?

Hemp seed oil may just be the holy grail for acne sufferers due to its anti-inflammatory properties and low comedogenic rating of 0. 

What is Comedogenics?

Comedogenic simply means likely to cause comedones. Non-comedogenic, therefore, means unlikely to cause comedones!   A comedone is a plug of debris (made up of bacteria, oil, dead skin cells, and skin care ingredients) filling a skin pore. Comedones commonly appear as blackheads and sometimes as whiteheads. Comedones trap the oil that normally flows out of pores and a pimple will often develop around this trapped oil.)
