What the Hemp?

Although originating from the same plant, yet not to be confused with the psycho-active drug, hemp oil has many amazing benefits!

Cannabis Sativa is cold-pressed from the Hemp plant seeds (rather than the leaves), and is full of vitamins and essential fatty acids (EFAs), which keep the skin plump and soft.

Hemp is known to have the following benefits:

  • Balances out oily skin
  • Light and non-greasy
  • Powerful antioxidant
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Doesn’t clog pores
  • Easily absorbed
  • Hydrating
  • Suitable for all skin types

This light green oil has SO many amazing properties which make it ideal for problem skin, oily skin, dry skin, even acne, where the skin’s sebaceous glands go into overdrive and create more oil! The temptation is to try to remove the oil, but the skin’s natural reaction is to then produce more. Hemp oil can help balance this out by regulating the skin’s oil production.

Here at The Soap Cabin, we are in the process of creating new products using this amazing skin loving hemp oil, so watch this space!

Miracle Butter

Today I decided to experiment and have a go at creating our new butter that I wanted to create for problem skin, particularly eczema, which is plaguing the backs of my legs at the moment.

I wanted to make something soothing, a bit medicinal, calming, moisturising, and oh so good, involving amazing Mango butter and Hemp seed oil.

Mango butter comes from the seed kernel of the mango tree and is full of essential fatty acids. It has a lovely luxurious feel, and unlike cocoa and shea butter, also has wound healing properties.

Hemp seed oil is cold pressed from the cannabis sativa plant (I know what you’re thinking) with a lovely dark green colour. It is also full of EFA’s and proteins and makes an excellent, balancing moisturiser that is easily absorbed by the skin. (Please note, it does not contain any of the psychoactive properties present in the Cannabis plant).

Miracle Butter coming soon!
