This hemp vegetable oil is produced in India from cold pressed unraffined organic seeds.
The oil obtained from the seeds is very popular in the natural cosmetics sector, because it is said to have a very good moisturizing and penetrating power.
It is their essential fatty acid content that makes the seeds of particularly interesting.
Indeed, the vast majority of oils and foods consumed in Western countries provide too much omega-6 fatty acids (linoleic acid) and too little omega-3 fatty acids (ALA alpha-linolenic acid).
This imbalance - about 10 to 30 omega-6 to 1 omega-3 - causes conditions conducive to cardiovascular and inflammatory disorders.
However, in hemp seeds, the omega-6 / omega-3 ratio is 2/1 to 3/1 and corresponds to the ideal proportions for human health established at 1/1 to 4/1.
Saturated fatty acids 3-7%
Monounsaturated acids (omega-9) 5-9%
Polyunsaturated acids (omega-3 and omega-6) 75-85%
Omega-3 about 24%
Omega-6 around 60%
