One area where terpenes hold a lot of potential is in skincare. From their low-cost extraction to year-round availability, cannabis botanical terpenes are easily integrated into cosmetic production, at scale.
The odor-producing qualities of terpenes are particularly desirable in skincare production. As an organic fragrance, terpenes can add an attractive scent naturally, eliminating the need for synthetic fragrances.
Terpenes may even help to fight the signs of aging. A 2015 animal study (8) found that the terpene camphor was an effective treatment against UV-induced wrinkles. While this study involved mice, it found that camphor was able to increase the expression of collagen (IA, IIIA, and IVA) and elastin, key proteins in the maintenance of skin health and youth.
Terpenes potentially offer more than just cosmetic improvements. Terpenes such as myrcene (9), humulene (10), and beta-caryophyllene (11) have demonstrated anti-cancer properties that could reduce the proliferation of skin cancer cells. Although research into the anti-cancer properties of terpenes is ongoing, it demonstrates the exciting future of terpene treatments.
Hemp Seed Oil
The many health benefits of hemp seed oil come from its high content of three polyunsaturated fatty acids: linoleic acid, alpha-linolenic acid, and gamma-linolenic acid. Additionally, its ratio of omega-6 (linoleic acid) to omega-3 (alpha-linolenic acid) fatty acids is 3:1.
A dermatology study found that hemp seed oil improves symptoms of atopic dermatitis, also known as eczema. Researchers attribute these results to the fatty acids found in hemp seed oil.
