It was in the 1970s that hemp entered the cosmetic scene thanks to its richness in essential fatty acids and antioxidants. A true cocktail of love for our skin!

A real French success story which proves that we can be trendy while remaining faithful to ancestral traditions.

Legality and French Regulation

Ah, France! Land of wine, baguettes and... hemp? Well yes, my dear friends. The beautiful nation is embracing natural cosmetics based on hemp with a passion that could make a Gallic rooster blush.

It must be said that the French government is not exactly known for its sense of humor when it comes to regulations . However, in this specific case, they were able to show a certain flexibility. As long as the THC level (the substance that gives smokers their blissful little smile) remains below 0.3%, all is well in the best of all possible worlds.

This means that you can freely use the oil from the seeds or the fibers to concoct all kinds of beauty elixirs without fear of an impromptu assault by French special forces on your bathroom.

So yes ! Long live France and long live its hemp cosmetics! A country where you can be chic and eco-friendly without worrying too much about the draconian laws on drugs... As long as you don't exceed this famous limit of 0.3% of course.
