Food oil: Hemp oil, which is pressed from hemp seeds, is highly nutritious as a food. The main market sections for hemp foods are the so called “super foods,” “nutritious foods” and “bio foods.” Double or even triple digit growth in the sector is expected in the coming years as consumers all over the world turn to more healthy, “eco” oriented food products.
Oil for cosmetics: Hemp soaps, shampoos and lotions, also based on hemp oil, are natural, safe and healthy for the skin. The unsaturated fatty acids contained in hemp oil prevent excessive loss of moisture and drying of the skin. Furthermore no pesticides or herbicides are used in conventional hemp cultivation, giving hemp products an unrivaled sustainability as well as health benefits. Hemp oil boosts immunity, counteracts aging of skin and improves cardiovascular health.
