THE INGREDIENT Since 1992, we’ve worked with more than 300 local family farmers to source our Community Trade Hemp Seed Oil, pioneering the use of Hemp in beauty products. Hemp is called the 'miracle crop' for its positive impact on the environment, and on your skin. The non-psychoactive variety of hemp we use can be used to make more than 25,000 different products, it’s four times more effective at capturing CO2 than trees and it works wonders towards keeping your skin hydrated and protected from the elements. COMMUNITY TRADE Because the crop could be mistaken for the illegal variety of hemp, we have to keep our Community Trade supplier’s location and identity a secret. But we can tell you that the farmers we work with have displayed true innovation and dedication to cultivating crops that enrich the biodiversity of the local environment. Growing hemp is a boon for hard-pressed farmers, because it grows quickly and doesn’t require chemicals, making it cheaper for them and kinder to the environment. Over 25,000 things can be made from industrial hemp and our Community Trade farmers use which is used to make animal litter to the fibre used in the production of specialist paper. By using every part of the plant from the shiv and ensuring that the hemp we use is grown in an eco-friendly way without the use of agrochemicals, less waste is created which helps to reduce the farmer’s carbon footprint.
