Hemp is taking over the beauty industry at the moment. I see so many new products with hemp as an ingredient that I really had to try it myself. One of the organic beauty brands Dr. Organic has a whole hemp beauty range including face, hand and hair products. In this post I’m going to review the 2 in 1 shampoo and conditioner, and the hand cream. And before we get started the hemp used in these products come from the cannabis sativa plant, which is industrial hemp created to derive oil etc from it. So don’t be scared you won’t go and act weird after using these products. First let me tell you a little bit more about hemp.
I was used to seeing hemp being used in vegan protein powder, but not in beauty products. Although I see more and more products containing hemp as an ingredient around me, so I can imagine you’re also wondering why it’s good for dry and sensitive skin. Hemp comes from the Indian hemp plant, which is processed to organic hemp oil. This oil is used in products like the products I’m going to talk about today from Dr. Organic. Hemp is rich of fatty acids including omega 3, 6 and 9, which is why it’s a good vegan protein alternative. These fatty acids are very useful to moisturise your skin, especially the skin that you can’t put moisturiser on (the scalp).
Dr. Organic shampoo and conditioner
I’ve been using this new Dr. Organic Shampoo and Conditioner for a while now and I notice a difference after using this product. The struggle of finding a good shampoo for my dry and sensitive scalp has been going on for a while. I never really used a 2 in 1 shampoo and conditioner before and I feel like my hair really likes it. Although in the really cold winter months I do need an extra conditioner since I have long dyed hair to make the ends less dry. I also feel like this shampoo is a really good clarifying shampoo and helps to calm down the scalp as well as moisturising it with the hemp.
Dr. Organic hand cream
As you might know I do a lot of rock climbing practices during the week. Hand cream is an essential when you do rock climbing. Especially when you also have dry hands! This hand and nail cream is again infused with organic hemp oil like all the dr organic hemp products. I don’t think I have to tell you again that this product really helps to moisturise the hands, so let me tell you something about the scent. It really does smell nice!
