hydrating serum 25ml


| /

Olive Squalane, Hemp-infused Almond Oil, Jojoba Oil, Rosehip Oil, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and essential oils of Palmarosa, Geranium, Jasmine, and Carrot Seed.

This hemp-infused hydrating serum is lightweight, easily absorbed, and ideal for dry or dehydrated skin, fine lines and dark spots. It contains high doses of antioxidants, Vitamin C and E to nourish and replenish the skin.

Intense hydration comes from the emollient-rich Olive Squalane (see below) & hemp-infused sweet Almond Oil which locks in moisture.

Lightweight for quick absorption, it is non-greasy and can be used under makeup.

What is Squalane? Squalane is an excellent emollient (helps soften and smooth the skin). Squalane is also a natural component of human sebum, the skin’s oily substance, so it’s very compatible with the skin’s natural oils. It provides hydration without a greasy feel, and is well-tolerated by most skin types, including sensitive skin, helping to maintain the skin’s lipid barrier. Squalane is often compared to hyaluronic acid, though Squalane has added extras like antioxidants, protective properties and a unique feel on the skin. It goes without saying our serum uses a plant-based olive-derived Squalane.

Hemp-infused skin care helps control oil production, stops excess growth of skin cells and reduces inflammation. BLACK SHEEP FARM use Hemp-infusion in their Skin Care range for three main reasons:

  1. Hydrates dry skin: Research from 2009 suggests that Hemp-infusion may be effective for dry, dehydrated skin.
  2. Helps reduce inflammation: As an anti-inflammatory, hemp may be able to help reduce swelling, pain, and redness from rosacea or irritation from skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis.
  3. Regulates oil production: Overproduction of sebum can be a contributing factor of acne, hemp may have an anti-inflammatory effect on sebocytes, the skin cells that produce sebum.

All BLACK SHEEP FARM skin care products are:

  • Plant based.
  • All natural
  • Handmade in small batches in the Northern Rivers NSW

Smooth a few drops over cleansed face, neck and décolletage morning and evening after toner, and before moisturiser.

I came across Black Sheep Farm products at my local massage place that my husband and I book in to, at Mac (the founder of Black Sheep Farm) and Chommy's house, who are a 5 minute drive from my home. It was at a time when one of our puppies had dislocated her toe, so I purchased the hemp, comfrey and arnica balm to massage on to her toes, as well as the old dog hemp oil to add to her food. She had a remarkable recovery and so, I ended up using the rest of the hemp, comfrey and arnica balm myself on my hips which sometimes get a little achey. And it worked wonders for me too. This led me to try the rest of the range and I fell in love. The ingredients are oh so pure and clean, as well as therapeutically healing. So when Mac asked me to trial the new Skin Care range I jumped for joy with a "yes please". And I loved it. So much so that we now stock it. It's a BRILLIANT choice for those of you on a budget, yet still keen to choose natural and organic botanicals that deliver visible results.
