Cosmetic Products Based On Hemp Begin To Be Sold In Chile
After years of research and with a strong presence in Europe, the Czech brand Annabis is introduced to the Chilean market, with a wide range of products, which transmit the multiple properties of hemp through the skin.
A study published in the British newspaper The Telegraph and carried out by the United Nations anti-drug office (Unodc) places Chile in the fifth country with the highest consumption of marijuana in the world. Uruguay became the first nation in the world to decriminalize the traffic, use, and cultivation of marijuana during 2013, but even so, our country leads consumption in South America.
Agricola Mercosur is one of the most important distributors in the business of the crop market. “It is necessary to have a cannabis cosmetic that has a certified medicinal value and meets high-quality standards, bring something different that is superior to what people usually know,” says Tarek Jury, director of Agricultural Mercosur.
Cannabis uses certified varieties of industrial hemp, produced naturally, whose plantations are located in the Czech Republic, where the cultivation of hemp is permitted and duly legalized for therapeutic purposes.The properties of seeds and hemp oil are one of the best natural sources of fatty acids, mainly omega 3 and omega 6; as well as the eight “essential” amino acids, which are not produced by our body and, therefore, must be incorporated into the body through food or its topical application.
These amino acids help body repair and muscle tone, in addition to delaying the aging of the skin and strengthen the nails and hair.Globally, it is already a trend, the Hollywood actress Whoopi Goldberg, just launched a few months ago in North America, a line of products based on cannabis for medical purposes. “Maya & Whoopi” that will put on the market a series of products that seek to relieve menstrual pain.
“It is important to highlight that, although the CANNABIS products are hemp-based, they do not have THC, and that is, they do not have the psychoactive effects of the plant or generate any dependence. They have been developed to maximize the active ingredients of hemp oil, achieving a line with anti-inflammatory, palliative, analgesic, antibacterial and antiviral effects, “says Viviana Gómez, Brand Manager. Other cosmetic benefits are skin miniaturization, prevention of aging, protection of the scalp and hair fiber. The brand is already in Chile, and its products can be found in pharmacies and organic stores, such as Hahnemann and Natural.
Industrial Products Of Hemp
We already made an introduction about cloth, where we tell you about the benefits it generates in its environment, its efficiency and the products derived from it in the textile, cosmetic, food industry and, of course, in construction. Now we expand the information speaking of the different materials that are obtained from it, for its application in the sector of bio construction.
The most outstanding characteristics of this natural fiber are its thermal properties, since it has a conductivity of 0.041 W / m * k, acoustic, with the absorption of 0.7 and bioclimatic, since its damping causes the external temperatures, when crossing the material, soften. A piece of information for you to get an idea of the high energy saving can reduce heating consumption by up to 40 %.
It is a 100% recyclable material. Even after the demolition of a building, it can be ground and reused for the production of fiber blocks or insulating mortars.
During its production, it does not need to be purified or the use of chemical fertilizers, since it does not contain proteins (due to the absence of nutrients in its stem). It retains CO2 throughout its useful life cycle, thereby achieving buildings with neutral or negative CO2 emission values. It contributes to reducing environmental pollution, a significant factor; given that 40% of CO2 emissions are attributed to the atmosphere in the construction sector.
Bio Hemp Oil 250 Ml / 500 ML
The hemp oil BIO 250 ml or 500 ml of Naturgreen is obtained from the first cold pressing of the hemp seed farming. It is a product to consume raw, providing a great flavor to the dressings, and it does not contain gluten.
Properties Of Hemp Oil Bio 250 Ml / 500 Ml Of Naturgreen
Hemp oil comes from hemp seed (cannabis sativa). It is one of the oils with the lowest level of saturated fats, becoming a nutritional supplement with high nutritional quality.The flavor of hemp oil is similar to nuts like walnut, being very pleasant and intense. It is a very digestive oil due to the presence of oleic acid, which also helps maintain a balance of body weight.
Among other properties, hemp oil has anti-inflammatory qualities and does not increase cholesterol. Also, it can help maintain good cardiovascular health. It is one of the oils most used for its composition from fatty acids such as omega 3 and omega 6.
In this series of technical reports on natural insulators, we will introduce concepts related to the thermal behavior of the different isolations. With it, we can know the capacity of the material to let out the internal heat. The higher the thermal conductivity, the more heat we will lose. For example, the known rock wool insulation has a thermal conductivity very similar to that of hemp, precisely between 0.034 and 0.041 W / m * K.
The acoustic absorption capacity of hemp is very high (0.7 out of 1), thanks to its density and porosity. What is achieved by absorption is to transform a large part of the sound energy that passes through it? If it reflected, the sound would stay in the
Stay, as it happens with thermal insulating materials of closed pore synthesis, such as expanded or extruded polystyrene, or polyurethane, being its acoustic result inferior, due to the null acoustic absorption of these materials.
The sound energy penetrates the article only to a certain depth, from which it would not be necessary to provide further thickness, but if the thickness is not adequate, absorption possibilities will be lost. Depending on the use of the space we can estimate the sound that will be produced in it, so we will choose the thickness of the hemp material to achieve the desired acoustic absorption.
Commercial Materials Based On Hemp Fibers
From the hemp fibers, numerous and varied products destined to the construction are obtained. The most common outcome is hemp blankets, from which we can find a large number of companies both distributors and producers of their material. But there are also other hemp-based building materials such as lime and hemp insulating mortars, bulk hemp wool or rigid insulating boards among others. For the description of the latter, we have based ourselves on the products of the Cannabric Company. Here you have a story about them, and for more information, you can consult their catalog.
