Herbalife Nutrition has been in the health and wellness industry for more than 40 years. As an international company, they provide quality-sourced and Mscience-backed products to consumers worldwide. In November of 2020, the company released a new product to supplement its growing line of plant-based skincare products in the U.S. market.

Enrichual is Herbalife’s new hemp-based skincare line targeting different skin and muscle recovery needs with the popular ingredient hemp oil. The line includes a facial serum and balm for the skin, and both products utilize helpful cannabinoids to enhance the results of the products.

When it comes to hemp-based products, there is still some confusion among consumers as cannabis plant growth is illegal in many states. The use of hemp, however, is perfectly legal since consuming hemp products does not cause any psychoactive effects. Because so many people associate the cannabis plant (the plant from which hemp derives) with recreational marijuana usage, past consumers have hesitated to use hemp-based products like topical ointments and CBD tinctures. But since cannabis farming is growing exponentially, and since the cannabis plant is so endlessly versatile, hemp is set to be one of the fastest-growing natural resources of this century.

And with the efforts of the internet – and bold moves by leading wellness companies like Herbalife – consumers are now less hesitant to reap the potential benefits of hemp and its non-psychoactive cannabinoids.

Enrichual Product Reception & How It Works

Herbalife’s existing skincare line, SKIN, focuses on “outer” nutrition, which encompasses skincare and body care. Products in this category include facial cleansers, moisturizers, sun protection, collagen boosters, and more. All these keep the skin healthy, well-balanced and minimize the effects of aging. Enrichual is designed as a self-care product to be used in addition to a well-balanced moisturization routine.

One of the benefits of using Enrichual is that it also works to moisturize the skin without damaging it in the process. Retail pharmacy moisturizers and serums, including some hemp-based serums, often contain parabens and sulfates. These ingredients may irritate the skin, which can negate the benefits of ingredients like hemp oil. Enrichual's dermatologist-tested formulas incorporate naturally moisturizing hemp ingredients with other natural ingredients and oils, leaving out the harsh chemicals found in common retail blends.

Parabens, sulfates, and other chemical and environmental stressors can prevent your skin from retaining moisture, leaving it dry, cracked, and even increasing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Enrichual works to avoid the unnecessary factors that contribute to aging, such as the impacts of environmental stressors. To add to the experience of aging prevention, Herbalife formulated its Enrichual products to smell and feel relaxing, like going to a spa. Because stress can also lead to premature skin aging, another goal the company had was to root out the source of one of the most significant contributors to aging other than environmental stressors – stress.

About Hemp-Based Products

Enrichual's innovative formula destresses and keeps skin moisturized, reducing the impacts of environmental stressors. But hemp oil itself has several benefits that many other natural ingredients do not contain.

Hemp is a derivative of the Cannabis Sativa plant. All parts of the plant are useful for humans, from the seeds to the stalks to the flowers. Many vegetarians and vegans use hemp seeds in their diet because of their Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids, which are beneficial to heart and brain health and often found in fish. The stalks are fibrous and often used to create rope, clothing, and sometimes even paper. The plant's hallucinogenic elements are the flowers and the stalks, which get left out of the production of any salves, ointments, or creams.

Each part of the plant contains cannabinoids, including THC and CBD. The cannabinoid that produces psychoactive effects, THC, is concentrated in the leaves and flowers, which most recreational smokers use to get high. By design, hemp-based products cannot get the consumer “high.” Creams and balms like Enrichual utilize the cannabinoid CBD, or cannabidiol, for their non-hallucinogenic health benefits. Meanwhile, the cannabinoid responsible for getting people high, THC, is left out of the cream – which means cream users can reap all the benefits of CBD without the undesired benefits of THC.

Understanding how the plant works is key to bringing in new customers of hemp-based products. As is true with many plant kingdom species, one part of a plant may provide benefits, whereas the other part of the plant might be toxic or hallucinogenic. Apples, for instance, are common nutritious fruits. Apple seeds, on the other hand, contain amygdalin, which can have a toxic effect when ingested in large quantities. The same goes for cannabis products – utilizing the parts of the plants with lower doses, or no traces of THC will provide benefits without the unwanted side effects.

Why Would A Nutrition Company Branch Out Into Skincare and Self-care?

Herbalife Nutrition is best known for its nutritional supplements, meal replacement shakes, teas, and other weight management and wellness products. Those who know about Herbalife but are not part of their community might have been thrown off by their foray into skincare and even more interested in their divergence into the realm of hemp products. However, for those familiar with Herbalife's ethics and goals, this is not too far out of their ballpark.

Herbalife is all about total nutrition, inside and out. Many people associate health and wellness with proper dieting and exercise, but Herbalife reminds consumers that it is about more than just what they eat or look like. Wellness involves self-care, mental health, and daily routines that help you feel great. Herbalife’s existing skincare products line reminds consumers to take care of their largest organ (the skin). In addition to skincare, Enrichual is intended to be part of one’s self-care routine.

The Enrichual line includes the Hemp Relief Balm and the Hemp Facial Serum.

The Hemp Balm is used as a soothing and ultra-protecting balm for the body and offers relaxing aromas. First and foremost, its moisturizing and nurturing plant-based oils prevent cracking, dry skin. Dry, cracking skin not only hurts but also encourages infection and bacteria through persistent skin cracks and sores. Your skin is your body's first line of defense against bacteria and viruses. Keeping your skin smooth and nourished allows it to do its job. The hemp seed oil and hemp balm use shea butter and jojoba to lock in moisture and soothe skin.

To provide the calming and relaxing elements of the balm, Enrichual also includes fragrant essential oils like lavender, eucalyptus, frankincense, and geranium. One suggested use of the balm is as a calming rub right before bed. Aromatherapy can be extremely beneficial to sleeping habits. Since sleep is key to body repair and natural energy, it is clear how aromatherapy can make a difference in sleep quality. When people achieve restful sleep, they will have more energy the next day.

Finally, the hemp balm acts as a soothing agent with the inclusion of menthol and camphor in its makeup. When used on sore muscles after a long day at work or an intense workout, it helps your body feel well when it might be repairing itself from natural stressors or activities.

Enrichual's Facial Serum also aims to moisturize and is specifically targeted to keep the skin on your face smooth and healthy. Lightweight oils prevent breakouts, which is why most do not use the same moisturizer on their body as they do on their face. Targeted facial moisturization keeps skin looking plump and youthful, as well as giving it a youthful glow. The face serum includes argan oil and hemp seed, which evens texture and complexion and provides an extra moisture-locking barrier. The serum also uses squalene derived from plant sources to seal in moisture and attend to texture-based issues like acne, psoriasis, and more.

The face serum by Enrichual also includes Bakuchiol, safflower, and meadowfoam seed oils for attending to specific, age-related skin issues. Bakuchiol is an alternative to retinol, which may enhance collagen production in the face and reduce the appearance of fine lines. Safflower oil contains linoleic acid, which may prevent skin flaking and keep the outer layer of your facial skin healthy. Studies have also shown it might help reduce the risk of skin afflictions such as acne and eczema. Meadowfoam oil, meanwhile, is an emollient substance that creates a lightweight, protective barrier over your skin.

The Enrichual Facial Serum also includes essential vitamins, C and E, which help skin protect itself against free radicals and their associated aging impacts.

How To Use Enrichual

Enrichual can be incorporated into a healthy moisturization and wellness routine. Different routines exist for facial skin and body skin, as well as morning and evening routines.

For daytime facial routines, Herbalife suggests first cleansing your face using a face-friendly cleanser like SKIN Polishing Citrus Cleanser or SKIN Soothing Aloe Cleanser. That should be followed by a toner, like SKIN Energizing Herbal Toner, and then the Enrichual Hemp Facial Serum. Finally, an SPF like SKIN Protective Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 should be applied for skin protection.

For nighttime facial routines, Herbalife suggests starting with the SKIN Polishing Citrus Cleanser or SKIN Soothing Aloe Cleanser and following up with SKIN Energizing Herbal Toner. Next, you should add a nighttime-specific moisturizer, like SKIN Replenishing Night Cream. Finally, Enrichual Hemp Facial Serum should go on last, as it will provide a protective outer layer to your skin and will ensure deep hydration overnight.

Herbalife suggests washing with Herbal Aloe Hand and Body Wash or the Herbal Aloe Bath and Body Bar for daytime body routines. Follow that up with the Herbal Aloe Hand and Body Cream, then the Enrichual Hemp Relief Balm for extra-dry or cracked areas of the body like elbows, knees, or the back of the hands. Finally, it would be best if you used a broad-spectrum SPF cream like Herbal Aloe Face and Body Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30 to protect against sun damage.

For nighttime body routines, Start with a cleanser like their Herbal Aloe Hand and Body Wash or their Herbal Aloe Bath and Body Bar. Next, apply Herbal Aloe Hand and Body Cream or a moisturizer of your choice, and end with Enrichual Hemp Relief Balm. Apply the balm as a nighttime or after-wor out relaxation ritual as well to lock in moisture.

Overall Reviews Of Enrichual

Since its release in November, Enrichual's sales have been steadily increasing, and initial reviews of the product have been overwhelmingly positive. Herbalife Nutrition's consumers are typically dedicated to a healthy, rounded lifestyle. Because Enrichual hits on so many of the benefits Herbalife consumers usually look for, its die-hard customers have been eager to include the balm and the facial serum into their daily hygiene routine.

As for potential new consumers, Herbalife is hopeful that Enrichual will enlighten others about the benefits of holistic health and the need to include self-care, wellness, and skin health as part of their daily routines.
