I’m in love with the empyri Oil Cleanser - it’s a dream. It easily removes makeup, thoroughly cleanses and leaves your face feeling moisturized (not dried out). I have used it every day for almost three months and I recommend it to everyone!
I love the simplicity of empyri’s 3-step ritual. After a long day of mountain biking, the oil cleanser is amazing at removing sweat & sunscreen (and chain grease!), leaving my face feeling clean and moisturized. With just these 3 products, I know my skin is getting everything it needs – it’s balanced, bright and smooth.
The empyri products are the closest to nature I have ever found. They are gentle, effective and just make my skin radiate. They have become part of my essential self-care routine! The cleanser leaves the skin so soft and the toner sooooo refreshed. Could not live without empyri anymore.

Use an additional 1-2 pumps for neck, chest and hands. You can also add a few pumps of serum to your favourite body moisturizer and apply to your entire body daily for an extra boost of hydration.

The benefits of moisturizingHydrated skin is healthy skin! The benefits of moisturizing your skin include:
- Protecting skin from environmental damages like dry wind, pollution, etc.
- Slow the aging processes by supplementing moisture where you need it
- Reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles by keeping skin plump
- Nourish your skin barrier which is your body's natural shield against moisture loss
- Repair skin from free radical damage like UV radiation which speeds up skin aging
What's the difference between the cream and serum moisturizers?The key difference between the cream and serum moisturizers is the texture. The serum is oil-based and waterless, a rich but lightweight formula that soaks in deeply to damp skin. The cream resembles typical lotions in its texture. Like the serum, it has a light texture but provides dramatic skin hydration and protection from environmental stressors too.
Which to choose for your skin typeEveryone...and we mean absolutely everyone needs to moisturize! Our hemp eye cream is suitable for all skin types. When it comes to choosing a moisturizer for your whole face however, your skin type will play a role.
For oily skin, choose empyri’s hemp face cream. It's super lightweight formula will not give you that awful greasy feeling that heavy lotions often do. We use pure hemp seed oil to moisturize and help regulate the skin's oil production. Plus it smells great... lavender and orange blossom, yes please!
Folks with oily complexions avoid oil-based products. It can seem counter-productive. But our hemp serum is suitable for oily skin, because it features hemp seed oil to regulate the skin's oil production and it's formulated for optimal absorption. This means it won't sit on top of your skin adding to your shine. Within a few seconds it starts to soak in, hydrating deeply where your skin needs moisture the most.
For oily skin, choose empyri hemp face cream. It's super lightweight formula will not give you that awful greasy feeling that heavy lotions often do. We use pure hemp seed oil to moisturize and help regulate the skin's oil production. Plus it smells great... lavender and orange blossom, yes please!
Both of empyri's hemp moisturizer face products are formulated with a sensitive skin type in mind. Our hemp serum contains hemp roots to soothe inflammation and our hemp cream features chamomile flower extract as a gentle antioxidant. Both use hemp seed oil, which is great for sensitive types because it's similar to our skin's oil. It's like introducing someone to a friend that's already familiar!
For normal skin, we're big fans of the skin care wardrobe. That means you have on hand all of your skin care essentials (and the extras too!) so that each day you can choose to give your skin what it needs. This is a luxury that folks tackling stubborn skin conditions don't have because day in and day out they are trying to treat, heal or manage their skin type.
If you have normal skin, choose hemp serum when your skin feels a little thirsty or when you have a few extra minutes of self-care time to let it soak in deeply. Choose our hemp cream when you want to create a smooth, plump base for makeup application, or in warm weather when you want something super lightweight.
Can I use itOn my scalp
You can use empyri's hemp serum on your scalp. The omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in hemp seed oil are very nourishing to skin - including the skin on the top of your head! And you can use our serum on your hair too. We always say "find a place for every last drop" so many customers rub leftover serum on their fingers through their hair strands. Try this at-home hair treatment: use empyri hemp bar soap for a gentle hair wash. While hair is still damp, apply 3-4 pumps of hemp serum from root to tip.
On my tattoo
After the first day (when you should be using a petrolatum-based product), use empyri's oil-based serum on your tattoo to keep it moisturized and prevent scabbing. For cleansing, our hemp face wash is a good choice too since its oil-based and won't irritate your skin barrier like foams.
All of empyri's hemp moisturizers are formulated for sensitive skin, including eczema. Eczema's #1 enemy is dry skin; keeping skin hydrated is critical. Hemp seed oil is very bio-compatible with the skin, and it's fatty acids create an effective moisturizer. Always test new products on a small patch of skin on your arm before applying to your entire face.. Avoid contact with eczema flare ups that are cracked or bleeding as essential oils may irritate the area. If redness or burning occur, stop using the product and cleanse the area with a cool, damp cloth.
For pain relief
Empyri hemp moisturizer products are NOT for pain relief. Our hemp derived products are not to be confused with CBD topicals/creams. CBD (cannabidiol) is a chemical compound in the cannabis sativa plant known for therapeutic benefits including pain relief, relaxation and sleep promotion.
How does the hemp add value?Hemp adds value to empyri moisturizers in 3 ways, with 3 different hemp-derived ingredients! Let's look at each one separately:
- Hemp ROOTS add anti-inflammatory properties to our hemp serum. Since inflammation is the root cause of many skin conditions (acne, eczema, redness) anti-inflammatory ingredients can benefit all skin types.
- Hemp SEED OIL adds omega fatty acids to all of our moisturizers. It's an effective moisturizer because its very similar to our skin's oil properties, helping it soak in deeply to where our skin needs the most hydration help. It also regulates the skin's oil production, which helps oily and acne prone skin.
- Hemp SEED EXTRACT is in our hemp face and eye creams. It's clinically proven to heal dry skin and balances like hemp seed oil. But it also has anti aging properties, reducing the width and depth of wrinkles.
What is hyaluronic acid?Hyaluronic acid (HA) is naturally occurring throughout the body. It's a glycosaminoglycan, which is a group of carbohydrates or sugars. HA is mainly in your connective tissue, and it's what gives structure to your skin. You can thank hyaluronic acid for making your skin hydrated and plump!
Your body's natural HA production slows overtime, but you can supplement using our hemp moisturizers with hyaluronic acid. We use sodium hyaluronate which is a salt of HA. It's got a lower molecular weight, meaning smaller particles, easier to penetrate into the skin to work its magic.
What are triple action polypeptides?OK this is a big one, so let's break it down. Peptides are a string of amino acids (poly means many, so lots of strings together to form a bigger chain). Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins that have critical functions in our bodies. We call the polypeptides in our hemp eye cream "triple action" because they are clinically proven to tackle the 3 most common eye concerns. Matrixl ® smooths wrinkles, Haloxyl ® brightens dark circles and Eyeliss ® reduces puffiness. They are all trademarks of Sederma, Inc.
