Kiehl’s & Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil
Sourced primarily from Germany, our Cannabis Sativa seeds are harvested from September to October. After harvest, the seeds are cleaned, then pressed using a mechanical cold pressing method before the final filtration and purification step.
” In the 1800s, Kiehl’s was a pharmacy and was known for procuring the best natural ingredients that were combined with advanced science to develop our uniquely effective formulations,” explains Cammie Cannella, Head of Education & Customer.
“Even today, we are still inspired by research on plants, herbs and extracts and by the expertise that we have acquired to maximize their useful properties. We believe in the power of natural ingredients and still use many of those that we originally discovered through our experience as a homeopathic pharmacy.”

Why does our Consulting Esthetician and loving mother, Shamara of @sb_skin, love Kiehl’s facial oils?! ✨ “I love face oils because even though they’re all called “oils”, they’re so varied! There’s a face oil (or five) for everyone, no matter what your concerns or skin type. Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil is a must-have. I recommend it all the time. It works better than oils that cost four times as much. It’s great for all skin types even problematic skin…. plus it smells amazing!” – Shamara’s #Facial Oil tip? ✨ “Always apply on damp skin! Even if you’re just splashing water on your face first thing AM or after a shower. This will allow the oil—and all its active ingredients—to absorb into the skin better.” – @sb_Skin – #Kiehls #HealthySkin #FacialOil 📷: @d.lezenby
