Biochemica® Hemp Oil Refined Organic is a highly refined low color oil obtained from the seed of hemp, Cannabis sativa, by cold expeller press method.

Biochemica® Hemp Oil Refined Organic may be used in body care, soaps, facial creams, lotions and sunscreens to impart moisturization, particularly for dry, damaged skin (i.e. eczema, psoriasis and mastalgia).
