Who doesn’t love the sumptuous feeling of a rich and silky moisturizer on the skin?
Courtesy of the folks at Hempz, our reviewers had the chance to test out their Triple Moisture Herbal Whipped Body Creme, as well as the Original Herbal Moisturizer and their Sweet Pineapple and Honey Melon variety. The consensus is that these are some of the best we’ve ever tried. And we’re big fans of body lotion, having had the chance to try out dozens of them over our years of vegan product sampling.
As the Hempz website says, the secret is in the seed:
“Nothing hydrates quite like hemp seed. The oil format delivers powerful moisture, vitamin E acts as a natural emollient, and omega fatty acids help strengthen the skin barrier. Using hemp seed oil in all our products isn’t a gimmick. It’s the most effective way we know to get softer, smoother, and healthier-looking skin.“
The folks at Hempz pride themselves on formulating all of their products with non-toxic, plant-based ingredients, and that’s a philosophy we’re confidently on board with:
“Whether we’re using pomegranate extract to help calm inflammation or shea butter to condition hair and skin, our favorite ingredients come from nature, not a test tube.“
Why Hempz Uses Hemp in Body Care Products
According to the Hempz website, hemp seed oil is composed of 23% essential fatty acids, including linoleic omega 6 and omega 3. These essential nutrients regulate oil production, soften and soothe dry, irritated skin and hair, and minimize signs of aging. Hemp seed also contains other nutrients that benefit hair and skin, such as magnesium, calcium, iron, zinc, and vitamins E, C, B1, B2, B3, and B6.
As many true believers will attest, hemp is also a sustainable product whose cultivation helps the environment in numerous ways, such as by re-establishing soil fertility.
The beautiful and high-quality products from Hempz contain no THC, and they’re free from parabens and gluten, while also being 100% vegan. As well as moisturizers, they offer hand creams, body butters, body washes and scrubs, sunscreen, soaps and hand sanitizers, hair care, cleansers and toners, lip balms, and even a line for our non-human animal friends.
