Hemp: a beauty miracle

Well fret not! When it comes to bringing back that healthy glow, hemp
is your miracle cure. Organic hemp seed oil is naturally rich in Omega
3, 6 and 9 (essential fatty acids), all 20 amino acids, anti-oxidant vitamins
A, B1, B2, B3, C and E, it has amazing anti-aging and moisture balancing
Hemp seed oil is readily absorbed to deliver omega fatty acids that help
repair cell damage, keep cells fluid, improve natural nutrient absorption
and assist in the natural cleansing and growth cycles of the skin and
"Hemp is the natural choice for our beauty products - it's renewable,
can be grown pesticide free and loaded with the essential nutrients that
keep hair and skin looking healthy, youthful and fresh," says Langford
of the collection that counts certified organic hemp seed oil in the top
four ingredients of every product.
Anti bait and switch philosophy
Each product in the collection contains highly concentrated amounts of
functional ingredients, so the consumer is not sold a romance story of
high-end ingredients present in only trace amounts. Which means each product
delivers exactly what it promises. Most importantly, all North American
Hemp Co. products are free of known carcinogenic ingredients like diethanolamine
(DEA) and sulphates widely used in the beauty industry. Preston Cosmetics
believes even one drop of a known carcinogen is too much and has made
a commitment to find the better way, and raise industry standards.
"Safe products that truly deliver over and above consumer expectations
are not the norm in the mass beauty market," says Langford of the
Preston Cosmetics major point of difference in a chemically driven industry.
"We don't want consumers to buy our products based on marketing hype,
we want them to choose our products because they work better than could
be imagined and because it's the healthy choice - for both the customer
and the environment."
