Why I Started Using Hemp Seed Oil

I began using Hemp Seed Oil after my disastrous experience with coconut oil. Long story short, when I first became interested in natural skincare, I thought that it was a good idea to use coconut oil as a moisturizer, and it caused an outrageous outbreak of pimples on my face.

Thank goodness Hemp Seed Oil existed to save me from my poor decision. It quickly calmed my face and within a few weeks, all evidence of my interaction with coconut oil disappeared.

That was 4 years ago and I still use Hemp Seed oil as one of my main moisturizers.

#1: Sky Organics

This is my favorite brand of Hemp Seed oil for one main reason… It comes with a pump!

The pump helps you dispense the amount of Hemp Seed Oil that you need, no more, no less. This means that your oil will not go to waste.

Pros about Sky Organics include:

  1. It is certified organic.
  2. It is non-GMO
  3. It is cold-pressed.
    1. This means that they did not use heat to extract the oil so more nutrients and benefits stay intact.
  4. It is food grade.
    1. If it is safe to eat, it is generally safe to apply on your skin.
  5. It is Cruelty-Free.
  6. It is Vegan

Cons about Sky Organics

  1. None

Other Info About Sky Organics

  1. It comes in two sizes: 8 oz and 16 oz
  2. Both sizes have pumps.

I also bought Avocado Oil from Sky Organics.

#2: Nutiva

Nutiva’s Hemp Seed Oil is the first brand I used, but its dispenser is really annoying. Every time I wanted to take a little bit to use, a bunch spurts out and whatever I don’t apply on my skin is thrown down the drain. I prefer not to use the leftover for the rest of my body because Hemp seed oil is green and I do not want to stain my clothes.

Pros about Nutiva

  1. It is organic.
  2. It is cold-pressed.
  3. It is unrefined.
  4. It is food grade.

Cons about Nutiva

  1. It dispenses too much oil at a time.

Other Info About Nutiva

  1. It comes in four sizes: 8 oz, 16 oz, 24 oz, and 128 oz.

Tips and Info About Hemp Seed Oil

It Needs to be Refrigerated.

Hemp seed oil is a heat sensitive oil and will quickly go rancid if you leave it outside. Before I shower, I put a bit of it in a small dish and take it to the bathroom with me.

It Can Stain.

Hemp seed oil is green and can stain your clothes if you are not careful. Since I only put it on my face, my clothes are safe.

Why Choose Hemp Seed Oil

Hemp Seed oil is a good oil to start off with when you first enter the world of natural skincare because of its low likelihood to clog pores. If you try it and find it too drying, then you can try more moisturizing oils such as rosehip seed oil or avocado oil. Just make sure that the oils you choose have a comedogenic rating of 0-3. You don’t want to make the same mistake as me and pick an oil that has a comedogenic rating of 5.

Just a reminder, a comedogenic rating describes the likelihood of an oil clogging your pores. 0 meaning that it will not clog your pores, and 5 meaning that it is highly likely to clog pores.
