Hemp lip balm is packed with omega fatty acids and linolic acid, these nutrients are key to cellular health and are key ingredients in the makeup of the cells outer layer. Hemp is often blended with Shea butter and other natural ingredients to make high quality lib balm. Lip balm made with hemp is good for chaffing and splitting often associated with wind and sun exposure."

"Hemp seed oil is made up of 80% essential fatty acid, the highest amount of any other plant. Hemp seed oil prevents moisture loss on a physiological level; it does just not merely "coat" the skin as do other oils. It contains the ideal ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3 based on our cells needs. Hemp so closely matches our own skins lipids it is able to penetrate inside our cells and lubricate the surface between them, thus bringing the EFA's within our body. For this reason EFA's have been proven to play a preventative role in skin aging and a healthy moisture balance."
Quoted from LiveStrong.com:
"Hemp seed oil is a natural moisturizer and can help to make your skin feel smooth and soft while acting as a barrier and preventing moisture loss. Hemp is also rich in vitamin D, which is necessary for calcium absorption to help achieve soft, smooth and hydrated skin."
