All Mesohemp products contain hemp seed oil (cannabis sativa seed oil), which has several benefits – including 460 types of essential fatty acids, including Omega 3, 6 and 9, as well as natural antioxidants.
Hemp seed oil also brings anti-inflammatory effects, helps cure acne and reduces skin problems related to stress. It also carries anti-aging effects, leading to prevention of skin problems from stress, effectively calming down sensitive skin.
