Wholly Hemp’s Ingredients

And Why We Choose To Use Them

All of our ingredients are natural & unrefined, and all are sourced from fair trade & animal friendly organizations.

Hemp Seed Oil is nature’s secret to clear and healthy skin. Hemp has a 3:1 ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs), which is the perfect match to human skin, meaning it quickly and easily soaks deep into skin to provide hydration from the inside out, reducing redness and irritation of the skin. Additionally, hemp’s high concentration of polyunsaturated EFAs helps it reduce inflammation, aiding in the treatment of skin conditions such as acne, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, or sensitive skin in general. Hemp seed oil is a non-comedogenic moisturizer that does not leave a greasy layer or clogged pores. Hemp has been found to be very effective for those with sensitive skin or other dermatological issues (Callaway, JC, Schwab U, Harvimaa I, Halonen P, Mykkanen O, Hyvonen P & Jarvinen T (2005). Journal of Dermatological Treatment.). Hemp helps lock in moisture and soften skin, while at the same time, creates a firm lather and effective cleanser that can clean away the toughest grease while still leaving your skin smoother than ever.

Shea Butter helps lock in moisture and restore elasticity to skin, minimizing scars and stretch marks. By providing deep hydration (similar to hemp), while having natural sun protection benefits, shea butter helps treat many skin conditions ranging from acne to rosacea. Shea butter is non-comedogenic and is naturally rich in vitamins A, E, and F to help provide deep and long-lasting hydration.

Coconut Oil is highly moisturizing, and is high in natural Lauric Acid which helps protect the skin from microbial infections. Coconut oil’s high concentration of EFAs softens skin and heals dry, cracked skin, while its concentration of natural proteins and vitamin E help keep skin healthy and rejuvenated.

Sunflower Oil has a high concentration of beta-carotene which reduces sun sensitivity and prevent premature signs of aging. Sunflower is high in vitamin A which is essential to healthy skin, and vitamin E which provides deep hydration. Due to the high concentration of vitamin E, sunflower oil cleanses and moisturizes acne-prone skin and rejuvenates dry, cracked skin.

Wheat Germ Oil is high in antioxidants which help repair damage done to skin over the years. Wheat germ oil soothes irritated and inflamed skin while promoting new skin growth, giving your skin a fresh healthy look. Similar to shea butter, wheat germ oil helps reduce stretch marks and scars.

Beeswax forms a protective layer on the skin which reduces contact with the elements, preventing the development of chapped skin and lips. Like shea butter, beeswax provides protection from sun exposure. Beeswax acts as an anti-inflammatory, antiviral, and antibacterial, which aids in the treatment of many skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis, eczema, rosacea, and more. Beeswax’s antibacterial properties help prevent the spread of skin conditions such as acne.

Palm Oil contains a high concentration of vitamin E, which acts as an antioxidant that helps the skin fight damage and the effects of aging by preventing the damaging effects of free radicals on the skin. In cleansers and shampoo, palm oil provides a thick lather and effective cleanser, all while moisturizing skin, leaving skin soft and rejuvenated. Similar to sunflower oil, palm oil is high in natural beta carotene, which provides much-needed vitamin A along with vitamin E, both of which aid in smoothing and repairing skin. We use only sustainably grown palm oil sourced from fair trade organizations to prevent and turn back the devastating effects of unsustainable commercial production. Small scale farming aids local populations out of poverty while preventing large corporate firms from destroying the vital world forests.

Rosemary Extract is high in antioxidants which acts as a natural preservative while at the same time aiding in the repair of damaged skin.
