Hemp Root Oil
Hemp root oil has been a staple in Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years, but it’s only recently that its cosmetic benefits have been explored.
Unlike hemp seed oil, there is evidence that hemp root oil is high in terpenes—compounds that can enhance natural absorption. That means hemp root oil can actually help the other active ingredients in our formulations to penetrate the skin. Hemp root oil also reduces the appearance of redness and puffiness, while soothing, smoothing and moisturizing. The result: healthy-looking, glowing skin.
Urban Juve’s proprietary hemp root oil is also rich in vitamins A and E, and contains trace amounts of potassium, magnesium, iron, zinc, calcium and phosphorus. Even better, it’s rich in antioxidants, which can help prevent or slow the signs of aging.Our hemp root oil works for all skin types. Because it moisturizes without clogging pores, hemp
root oil is even beneficial for oily skin.
Ayurveda & Body Bios
Ayurveda is an ancient medicinal system with a 5,000-year history. It begins with the belief that each of us has a unique blueprint for optimal health. Since no two people are exactly alike, nobody achieves ideal health in the exact same way—and the same is true for beauty. As a result, Ayurveda emphasizes each individual’s unique physical and psychological
characteristics, as well as the time of year and geographic location.
Literally translated as “life and knowledge,” Ayurveda connects mind, body and spirit for a holistic approach to wellness. Practitioners devote equal attention to diet, exercise and meditation. Ayurveda also centers on the belief that food is medicine—as the saying goes, we are what we eat!
All our products are formulated by an experienced Ayurvedic practitioner, who takes a holistic approach to beauty. That means seeing beauty products as food for the skin, focusing on natural ingredients that meet the skin’s nutritional needs.
We also focus on individual, personalized wellness. By separating our products into three Body Bios, we encourage people to find their own unique approach to self-care.
To complement our emphasis on ancient teachings, we also capitalize on ground-breaking innovations: newly deregulated ingredients, patent-pending extraction methods and rigorous scientific testing.
Ayurveda explores the relationship between our health and the five elements—air, ether, fire, water, and earth. For optimal health, these fundamental elements need to balance. Combinations of two elements (like air and water, or fire and earth) are called Doshas. At Urban Juve, we’ve focused on three key Doshas.
The Vata Dosha is associated with earth and air. Those dominant in this Dosha are considered lively, creative and original in thought. When imbalanced, they might experience joint pain, constipation, dry skin and anxiety. Our Vitalize products are designed to help restore balance to Vata Dosha.
The Pitta Dosha is associated with fire and water. Those dominant in this Dosha are considered fiery in temperament, intelligent and fast moving. When imbalanced, they might experience ulcers, inflammation, digestive problems, anger, heartburn and arthritis. Our Balance products are designed to help restore balance for the Pitta Dosha.
The Kapha Dosha is associated with earth and water. Those dominant in this Dosha are considered strong, solid and calm in nature. When imbalanced, they might experience obesity, diabetes, sinus problems, insecurity and gallbladder disorders. Our Align products are designed
to help restore balance for the Kapha Dosha.
In keeping with Ayurvedic principles, we formulate skincare for three different Body Bios: Vitalize, Balance and Align. They correspond to the physical properties of your skin, whether dry, sensitive or oily.
Dry, delicate and prone to flakiness? Skin in the Vitalize bio is susceptible to wrinkles, fine lines and eczema. The upside: you’re less likely to suffer from acne and breakouts. Our deeply hydrating Vitalize products restore your natural glow.
Aggravated by heat and sun? Skin in the Balance bio is prone to inflammation and redness, along with rosacea, pigmentation issues and rashes. A mix of dry and oily areas is also
common. Our Balance products are designed to calm the skin and counteract the effects of
Prone to oiliness? Skin in the Align bio has more visible pores and is susceptible to acne,
blackheads and water retention. However, it’s also slower to show signs of aging. Our Align
products are formulated to leave skin light and refreshed, helping to keep excess oil in check.

We avoid all toxic fillers and unpronounceable chemicals, including sulfates, parabens,
formaldehydes or formaldehyde-releasing agents, phthalates, mineral oil, artificial fragrances and dyes.
All of our PET bottles can be recycled over and over. To ensure our formulas remain pure and effective, we are using a pump that’s not currently recyclable. We are striving towards fully recyclable packaging and are participating in community initiatives to offset our impacts.
When properly stored, all of our products will remain effective for two years, apart from our face masks and body exfoliants, which have a six-month shelf life.
Yes. We do extensive stability and microbial testing before our products are produced at our lab in British Columbia, Canada.
We recommend doing a patch test on your inner wrist, because the skin there is similar to the skin on your face. If you develop any signs of redness or irritation after 24 hours, stop using the product in question.
It’s best to keep them in a cool, dark place, although our formulas remain stable and effective under 25 degrees Celsius. (Pro tip: store your facial mist in the fridge for an extra-refreshing treat on hot days.)
