The benefits of hemp oil on the beard.

The application of beard oil is essential for maintaining facial hair and limiting bacterial growth. The composition of beard oils varies, but these treatments generally contain plant-based oils like hemp oil. Here are the specific benefits this vegetable oil brings to facial hair.

In summary, hemp oil.

Highly utilized in Europe for its medicinal properties, the hemp plant saw its production banned in France during the 1940s due to its misuse as a narcotic substance. It wasn't until 1990 that its cultivation, devoid of psychoactive properties, was once again permitted. Its vegetable oil is one of the most concentrated in essential fatty acids. This richness bestows upon it regenerative, antioxidant, and strengthening virtues. Today, the varieties of hemp used in skin and hair care are listed in the public health code and are thus legally required to have a THC level below 0.2%.

Regarding its extraction process, the substance can be obtained from the seeds in three different ways: mechanically (first cold press), through an extraction solvent, or using supercritical fluid (CO2). Depending on the method used, the yield may be more or less efficient.

What benefits does hemp oil bring to the beard?

Rich in omega-3, 6, and 9, the hemp oil is often used in the formulation of a beard oil due to the following virtues:

  • It softens the hair.
    Beard hairs tend to be rougher than head hair. Hemp oil softens and adds shine to the hair. It also helps to tame unruly hairs so that the entire beard appears cleaner and more styled;

  • It strengthens the hair and reduces its breakage.

    The fatty acids found in hemp oil increase the level of keratin, a building block of hair, making it stronger and more resilient;

  • It soothes any potential irritations.

    Hemp oil also has a soothing effect on the itching that many bearded individuals experience. The omega-3 it contains allows it to regulate sebum production. As a result, it reduces the risk of dandruff development;

  • It hydrates the skin and limits potential itching associated with shaving.

    Shaving tends to disrupt the hydrolipidic film and dry out the epidermis. Hemp oil is lipid-replenishing, allowing it to care for the skin beneath the hair;

  • It delivers a fresh and woody fragrance.
