Appreciate Earthly Body sending some free Hemp Seed hand wash and male grooming product samples our way! These products utilize oil made from Hemp Seed which provides a variety of health benefits. You can't get high from items containing this oil though as it doesn't contain THC ( the psychoactive element of marijuana) and these Hemp Seeds come from cannabis plants cultivated specifically for non-drug use.

Hemp Seed can infuse us with omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids our bodies don't produce on their own. One of those omega-6 fatty acids, gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), is a powerful anti-inflammatory that also aids skin growth and new cell generation. Alpha-linoleic acid (ALA), an omega-3 acid found in Hemp Seed is exceptional as a moisturizer for alleviating dry skin as well as conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. Hemp Seeds also contain globulin edestin, a protein used by our bodies to repel infection. The oil produced from Hemp Seed is also full of Vitamin E which is an antioxidant that protects body tissue from damage. So there are a number of skin care benefits associated with the use of Hemp Seed Oil.

These elements also provide benefits for hair care. Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids aid in moisture retention and can boost the shine of hair when Hemp Seed Oil is used as an ingredient in shampoos and conditioners. The Vitamin E in Hemp Seed also improves the elasticity and shine of hair. Therefore Hemp Seed is becoming a valued component in hair and skin care products.

When the COVID-19 coronavirus first became prevalent around Metro Detroit, I was spending a lot of time in locations for work that made me highly susceptible to the contagion.  To help avoid contracting the disease, I was literally soaking my hands in sanitizer throughout the day while I was out and about for work. This has taken a real toll on my hands which now are aching and dried out from overexposure to the alcohol in those sanitzers. Ouch my hands are a mess!


From Hemp Seed Body Care I received their new Hand Wash to try out and that has made a big difference in helping my hands heal up. Using it around the house to clean my hands, this hand wash has also been helping to repair some of the damage caused by the overuse of sanitizers. I've noticed a difference as the omega-3 + omega-6 fatty acids and Vitamin E in the Hemp Seed Oil has moisturized my dried out skin and helped promote its healing. It is a night and day difference in how my hands look and feel since I started using the Hemp Seed Body Care Hand Wash.

Note I haven't used this product in an effort to decontaminate my hands from the coronavirus but rather to tidy up and help heal the damage done by hand sanitizers. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recommends that washing for 20 seconds with plain soap and hot water is the best way to clean your hands in order to prevent illness.

Just because I'm a guy doesn't mean taking care of my body and grooming shouldn't be important to me. That being said men who purchase body care products are often painted as being not masculine. So often times males don't take as good of care of their appearances and health care as they could be. Yeah hate to admit it but I can testify to having avoided using body care products so as not to appear feminine.

With that in mind, Earthly Body has created a line of products catering specifically to guys called MARRAKESH FOR MEN. This brand provides salon quality skin and hair care products that utilize Hemp Seed Oil as a key ingredient. They also have names and fragrances specifically applied to appeal to the male market.

I was provided with a bottle of MARRAKESH FOR MEN Pilsner Hand & Body Lotion that based upon the results of the Hemp Seed Body Care Hand Wash will definitely be a product I'm going to be using on a regular basis. There is no reason men shouldn't take the same care of their skin that women do when it comes to this aspect of maintaining a healthy body. We can do it now though while still looking rough and tough with this brand of moisturizer meant for men.

They also send me a travel kit of male grooming products that I haven't used yet but have stashed in my gym bag. I will absolutely by using the MARRAKESH FOR MEN Travel Kit when I am able to get back out for my normal workout routine at Planet Fitness. Included within easy to transport bottles are Double Hop 2-in-1 Shampoo & Body Wash (3.4 fl oz/ 100ml), Bomber Shave Cream (3.4 fl oz/ 100ml), and Porter Styling Gel (3.4 fl oz/ 100ml). Great for helping you clean up after a good workout. Also nice to have when traveling for a family vacation or work trip.
