The Hempest

The couple that runs this local Kootenay company hand-make these incredible creams out of all natural ingredients. Using the natural healing power of hemp and pure, high-quality ingredients and essential oils, The Hempest's line of eco body products has a very loyal following. People with psoriasis or eczema swear by their Omega cream.

The oils in their products have many beneficial qualities and contain essential vitamins, proteins, and fatty acids which help to protect and replenish your skin. At least 50% of every oil blend that The Hempest uses is hemp seed oil, which they mix with other oils such as sweet almond, apricot kernel, avocado, grapeseed, emu, jojoba, evening primrose – and sometimes shea or cocoa butter. These butters and oils have been used for centuries in Africa, Europe and Australia for skin protection, healing, and regeneration (though products containing emu oil are not vegan).
