Hemp and it's Skincare Benefits

by Graile Palgue

Essential extracts from the hemp plant provide many skincare benefits. Before its legalization, most people are not aware of the benefits of hemp extracts when infused in skincare products. However, recent innovations in skincare make it a potent ingredient in beauty products for its anti-inflammation properties and vitamin contents that are known to keep the skin healthy.

 Here are some of the benefits of using hemp for skincare:

Hemp is known to thwart skin aging

A non-invasive form of skin aging prevention and therapy includes the application of hemp extracts in skincare and topical agents. The topical application of vitamins and antioxidants can better protect the skin by neutralizing the damaging effect of free radicals. When infused in skincare products, the antioxidant and regenerative properties of hemp extracts reduce signs of aging, such as dullness, red skin tone, and wrinkles.

A major argument against the topical application of vitamin-infused skincare products is that the skin may not absorb these nutrients.  However, Divan Beauty Age-Defying Hemp Face Serum is a serum topical product that is designed to absorb well into the skin. Moreover, the combination of retinol and hemp extracts in Divan Beauty Face Serum makes it a powerful topical product for reducing fine lines and wrinkles.

According to Dr. Michelle Green, a New York board-certified dermatologist, the form of the topical product is important and suggests using serums as this absorbs immediately into the skin.

Hemp extracts prevent dry skin

This age-defying serum contains hemp extract that is rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory ingredients for skin dryness.

The advantage of using skincare products with hemp extracts is that it helps regulate oil production. Its moisturizing and healing benefits make it ideal in balancing nutrients to improve skin health and appearance.

Some critics point out moisturizers may cause acne and other skin problems as most have ingredients that clog the pores. This is where Divan Beauty Age-Defying Hemp Moisturizer comes in. This age-defying serum contains hemp extract that is rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory ingredients for skin dryness.

Helps Acne

Getting ready in the morning

Skin inflammation and redness often arise from the build-up of oil that clogs the pores. The topical application of skincare products with hemp extracts prevents the excess production of oil and also inhibits inflammation.

An article published in Medical News Today recently reveals that  Cannabis sativa plant compounds have an anti-inflammatory effect. It prevents the activation of inflammatory cytokines that trigger acne. Logically, the presence of hemp extracts in a skin product prevents the triggering of acne and skin breakouts.

Relief for Eczema

Skincare products that contain hemp extracts may help in the management of eczema. Currently, there is no known cure for this skin condition; however, Dr. Jeremy Riggle, Chief Scientist of Mary’s Nutritional, has recently validated the positive impact of hemp extracts in alleviating symptoms of eczema.

Hemp-based topical products have properties that can inhibit histamine responses, making it effective in easing itch, pain, and inflammation. Further, hemp extract as a topical agent does not have an adverse side-effect, making it a favorable option in managing eczema.


Many cosmetic and skincare products contain hemp extracts known to keep the skin healthy. It is a favorable ingredient as it offers a soothing effect on the skin, especially when combined with other plant-based ingredients.

For best results, choose Divan Beauty Products. Two of its products contain hemp extracts, making them ideal for better skin health.
