Q: What is hemp oil extract?
A: First, it’s important to understand that our extracted hemp oil is not THC. You won’t get a “high” from using our hemp oil products. It is legal in all 50 US states to sell and use. Our broad spectrum CO2 extracted hemp oil comes from organically grown hemp plants, and benefits your body through the endocannabinoid system, a vital body system responsible for regulating one’s general state of balance, appetite, sleep, mood, hormone regulation, pain and immune response, and so much more.
Our hemp oil extract contains over 500 phytonutrients in various parts of the plant, from the seeds, right through to the roots, including hundreds of terpenes, essential oils, and antioxidants.
Research suggests topical use of hemp beauty products allows these phytonutrients to absorb through the skin and may help localized areas with muscle soreness, pain relief, inflammation, tension, cramps and headaches. And, may also help with skin irritations such as itchy skin, psoriasis, and dermatitis*.
Topical hemp oil extract works by binding to a network of CB2 receptors which are found throughout the body and connect to the endocannabinoid system. These receptors are activated by the phytonutrient rich extracted hemp oil in our products, bringing direct results to the areas it is applied to*.

Q: Does WholeMade® use parabens or sulfates in their products?
A: 100% of WholeMade® products are paraben-free and sulfate-free. We feel it is highly important to eliminate parabens from all our products, due to the possible link to breast cancer. We are very proud to offer a wide variety of products free from these chemicals, and most of our products are completely preservative free.
Q. Why does WholeMade® use so much Sunflower Oil?
A: Sunflower Oil is very comparable to Olive Oil, but more sustainable. And, since it is locally produced, we are helping our local Colorado economy. We use High Oleic (HO) sunflower oil, which provides optimal health benefits, a clean light taste, and is trans-fat free. The Vitamin E level is 3x greater than olive oil. HO sunflower oil is naturally NON-GMO.
Q: Is your Palm Oil Sourced with Sustainable Methods?
A: Yes, our Palm Oil manufacturer works with farmers to replace slash and burn practices with sustained yield agroforesty methods. WholeMade Palm oils are produced in a sustainable organic system that is restoring forests to previously cut areas near the mouth of the Amazon River in Brazil.
Our organic palm products are certified and through an audit, ensures that the producer practices fair relations in trading socially and environmentally certified products. The audit also verifies that the producer invests in programs of human and social development for employees, farmers and neighborhood communities, as well as in programs of environmental conservation.
WholeMade® oils are pressed from the palm fruit clusters and processed using only steam and pressure; no chemical solvents are used in any stage of production.
Palm fruit oil has naturally high levels of antioxidants (tocopherols and tocotrienols) which resist oxidation and rancidity, giving extended shelf life to products produced with palmfruit oils.
