When it comes to skin care, here at the hemp shop we know that hemp holds the key to nourished and healthy skin. Long before CBD became popular, for thousands of years in fact, another part of the hemp plant has been helping people in their skincare routines.

Vitamin E contained in hemp seed oil is a powerful antioxidant which has been shown in studies to reduce fine lines and wrinkles as well as reducing scarring, making it a great choice for tattoo aftercare.
