Pregnancy is an exciting time filled with joy and anticipation, but it also comes with a lot of questions and concerns, especially when it comes to taking care of your changing body. If you’re considering using Hemp Seed Oil skincare products during this special time, we’re here to help you navigate through the maze of information and set your mind at ease. 

So – the million dollar question: is Hemp Seed Oil safe to use during pregnancy? The answer is a resounding yes! 

Here’s why.

Why Hemp Oil is Safe During Pregnancy

It’s NOT psychoactive 

Hemp Seed Oil is derived from the seeds of the hemp plant, which contains little-to-no THC, the psychoactive compound found in marijuana. This means that Hemp Seed Oil is non-intoxicating and poses no risk to you or your baby – you have our word on that! 

Now we’re in the clear on the safety of Hemp Seed Oil, let’s explore why it can be a really great addition to your skincare routine during pregnancy. 

Hemp Seed Oil will keep your changing skin comfortable 

One of the standout qualities of Hemp Seed Oil is its ability to deeply moisturise the skin without clogging pores. As your body undergoes hormonal changes during pregnancy, you may find that your skin becomes drier or more sensitive. Using Hemp Seed Oil can help replenish lost moisture, leaving your skin feeling supple and sublime. 

Another reason mums-to-be really dig Hemp Seed Oil is because of its anti-inflammatory properties. Pregnancy hormones can sometimes lead to skin issues like redness, irritation, or pregnancy acne (breakouts… Can we ever escape them?!) Hemp Seed Oil can help calm and soothe inflamed skin, providing relief from discomfort and promoting a more balanced complexion.

Saionara, stretch marks 

Stretch marks are a natural outcome of pregnancy, or any situation in which your skin stretches suddenly including rapid growth or weight gain. One way of reducing the likelihood of stretch marks appearing – or diminishing the look of stretch marks you already have – is by keeping your skin supple and moisturised with a body oil. 

Our La Tropica Body Serum is perfect for the job. It has the capacity to speed up cell recovery, and is also known to increase the production of collagen, which strengthens skin and improves elasticity. Hemp Seed Oil is also a rich source of Chlorophyll which is great for soothing skin irritation and dryness. You can read more about treating stretch marks here

It’s super gentle 

If there’s ever been a better time to be gentle with yourself, it’s when you’re growing a whole new human being inside you! 

Hemp Seed Oil is an absolute treasure in this regard because it is widely adored for its gentle nature, making it suitable for even the most sensitive skin types. Pregnancy can bring about heightened sensitivity, so having skincare products that are gentle yet effective is essential. Hemp Seed Oil checks all the boxes, making it a fantastic choice for mums-to-be who want to prioritise the health and wellbeing of their skin.
