Why Hemp Skincare?

A special synergy

Over the years of producing and selling premium quality certified organic Hemp seed oil something came up time and time again – customers were using it on their skin and reporting impressive results.

Non-greasy Hemp Seed oil penetrates the skin delivering rich nourishment and moisture where it can provide the most benefit.

“It made sense to develop a skincare range. I couldn’t ignore the fact that something very special happens when these two oils come together; the life force of this amazing plant becomes fully available to the skin. These 2 oils come together.”

Why Organic?

Plants – not poison

In a landmark alliance known as Project TENDR, hundreds of scientists from around the world have come together in a consensus statement urging consumers to stop using toxic personal care products. The research warns that synthetic chemicals in skincare and other household products poison the body and can cause cancer, infertility, brain disorders and retard the intelligence of unborn children.

It can be hard for consumers to know what to choose however. Many popular skincare brands are guilty of hiding ingredients and using misleading marketing to promote toxic products as healthy.
