Castor seed oil (Jamaican origin) is rich in a fatty acid called ricinoleic acid which is effective in killing micro organisms such as bacteria and fungi that can cause infection.
Aside from eliminating harmful bacteria, the oil is a natural emollient that can effectively trap moisture within the skin – thus reducing dehydration of the epidermis and keeping the skin healthy and moist.
The oil is very rich in anti-oxidants that keep the skin soft and pliable.Cannabis Sativa (Hemp) seed oil contains 57% linoleic acid (LA) and 19% linolenic acid (LNA) as well as vitamin E, carotene and a great number of minerals.
The high count of essential fatty acids (LA and LNA) in combination with numerous trace minerals make this oil an important part of our compound due to their restorative and anti-inflammatory qualities.
