This hemp-related product is one of the top sellers on Amazon.com this week. Let’s look at the label to see why it’s so “high” on the best sellers list.
Hempz Original Herbal Body Moisturizer Ingredients
Moisturizer and solvent for the other ingredients.
A humectant that helps hold moisture to skin.
An emollient that makes skin feel smooth
A fatty acid that is neutalized with a base (see below) to form the creamy “backbone” of the lotion.
An emulsifier that helps keep all the ingredients mixed together.
Buytrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter)
A natural moisturizer.
Glyceryl Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate
The primary emulsifiers that hold the lotion together.
Another fatty material that gives the lotion its body.
Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice Powder
Aloe can help moisturize skin when used at high enough levels.
A high pH base that reacts with the stearic acid.
Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Panax Ginseng Root Extract
Herbal extracts that look good on the label but don’t really do anything.
A humectant that can help bind water to skin.
Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract, Symphytum Officinale Leaf Extract, Althea Officinalis Root Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract
Skin protectant that is probably used to too low of a level based on its location on the ingredient list.
