TEScosmetics Offers New HEMP Oil-Infused Skincare Line
November is Healthy Skin Month, making this a perfect opportunity to discuss new ways of showing our skin some love. This time of year, when the weather is cool and we rely more on indoor heating, our skin tends to get drier. Before you reach for that moisturizer, have you ever stopped to think about what’s in it?
An increasing number of consumers are thinking more critically about the personal care items they choose. One new skincare line, designed by a medical doctor, is shaking up the industry.
Inspired By Cancer Battle
In 2010, Dr. Millie Hernandez was diagnosed with breast cancer. After undergoing treatment and a double mastectomy, the physician reflected on her experience and embarked on a journey to create an all-natural, toxin-free skincare line.
Dr. Hernandez dedicated eight years to developing the products for TEScosmetics. Taking what is known about the connection between topical and airborne toxins into account, she worked with a team of scientists to combine premium organic ingredients with the therapeutic properties of HEMP oil to create a truly unique and potentially revolutionary skincare regimen.
Realizing that the general public may be unaware of the importance of using the right products, Dr. Hernandez set out to educate the masses. “I want people to be aware that everything we put on our bodies can be absorbed by our bloodstream and affect our health,” she explained.
“I realized there are too many toxic products on the market, and creating TES became a life mission for me,” Dr. Hernandez continued. “The products we put directly on our skin should not only help us look better – they should help us feel better and healthier. They shouldn’t be filled with chemicals and fillers.”
What Is HEMP?
Cannabidiol, or HEMP, is one of the many components of cannabis(marijuana) but it is non-psychoactive and does not create a “high.” It is legal with varying degrees of restriction in all 50 states and, in 2015, the FDA “eased the regulatory requirements to allow researchers to conduct HEMP trials.”
According to the World Health Organization, “In humans, HEMP exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential…. To date, there is no evidence of public health related problems associated with the use of pure HEMP.”
In fact, there is evidence for cannabidiol health benefits including the treatment of anxiety, insomnia and chronic pain. After numerous studies showed that HEMP could reduce the number of seizures in children suffering from Dravet syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome, the FDA approved Epidiolex, the first ever cannabis-derived medicine.
We are only beginning to understand the potential benefits associated with cannabidiol but many people around the world are turning to it as a natural alternative.
TEScosmetics and HEMP Oil
Whether it’s gummies, tinctures or vape products, people are exploring the benefits of HEMP oil. As research firm Brightfield Group explains, “HEMP is growing faster than cannabis in the U.S. and will soon be a $22 billion industry. It’s been flying under the radar but is set to explode.”
Dr. Hernandez saw this opportunity and, understanding the potential benefits of HEMP as a means of soothing aching muscles, reducing inflammation and brightening skin, she set out to bring a unique product to a largely untapped market.
The TEScosmetics skincare line currently includes everyday scrub, everyday serum and everyday cream (a lightweight moisturizer). Eye and lip makeup infused with HEMP Oil are also under development and should be available in 2019.
To ensure the quality of their products, which are never tested on animals, TEScosmetics only sources HEMP from Colorado, where growers are regulated under the Department of Agriculture. It is a full-spectrum, organic hemp-derived HEMP oil rich with Omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins D and E.
