Why Hemp?

Earthly Body uses organic hemp seed oil in all of our products – our body lotions, shower gels, massage oils, body mists, shave cream, Miracle Oil, and Marrakesh hair-care products, and in our best-selling massage candles.

The industrial hemp seed that is used in cosmetics today is not marijuana, although they are from the same species (Cannabis Sativa). The seeds are sterilized, removing any traces of THC – the mind-altering compound found in the drug. Industrial hemp can be grown with relatively little fertilizer and without the pesticides that have been known to pollute ground water and river systems.

MANUFACTURER’S DECLARATION: The oil in our hemp-based products has been tested in accordance with Health Canada and USDA guidelines and contains 0.00% THC (tetrahydrocannabinol).

These products have been rendered non-viable by the cold-press processing of the seeds.

In short, Earthly Body products are 100% drug-free.

Hemp seed oil is renowned for its skin moisturizing and rejuvenating properties and has the highest concentration of essential fatty acids (EFAs) of any essential oil, as well the perfect balance of Omega 3 and Omega 6 EFAs. Essential fatty acids have the ability to enter directly into the lipid layers of skin cells, replenishing the oils that are missing due to sun exposure, poor nutrition or neglect; and as shown by clinical studies can actually slow down the aging effects on skin.

Throughout history the anti-inflammatory properties of hemp seed oil have been used as a soothing restorative to dry, damaged skin. The replenishing nutrients of hemp seed oil are able to penetrate deep into skin cells – providing natural emollients and a lasting barrier to moisture loss – increasing the skin’s natural capacity for moisture retention.

Science has proven that hemp seed oil is good for the body and skin. Once you experience the hemp benefits in Earthly Body’s products, we think you’ll agree.
