Founder Alexandra Schatten’s path to skin and personal care was not your typical beauty journey. Working as a chef, Alexandra possessed a unique insight into mixing, blending and amalgamating ingredients into extraordinary results. That’s why when she badly burned her chest, making what should have been a routine pot of bolognese, she harnessed her own nutritional knowledge and formulating expertise to create the solution she was seeking for. In the days following the burn, Alexandra tried every over the counter solution, it seemed, to no avail. No matter what she experimented with, the burn remained unhealed and her symptoms only worsened.
That’s when she turned to Hemp, an ingredient she knew was anti-inflammatory and loaded with restorative, fatty acids…and one of the earth’s most sustainable ingredients, at that. Within weeks of daily use, she began to experience visible signs of scar reduction on all burns, old and new. Alexandra shared the formula with friends and family, and like a true skin phenomenon, they also began to experience transformative results. She quickly realized that what she had discovered through Hemp’s healing and moisturizing abilities was so much more than a topical scar solution — it was a true wellness essential and the foundation of a life, well lived.HEMPIST™ has since evolved, as does Alexandra’s vision for the industry as a whole. The good ingredient innovator envisions — and is indeed behind the scenes working towards the reality of — a marketplace, free of harmful toxins, and resplendent with organic, natural and high-performance solutions that nourish baby, body, pet and planet.
