Herbalife Nutrition — Wellness

Nurturing Mind and Body with Plant-Based Ingredients

Science-driven innovation is in the DNA of our company: we are always looking to meet the evolving needs of consumers with high-quality products. As a leader in plant-based nutrition for more than 40 years, we recognize the health and wellness benefits of plants.

We’ve seen an increased awareness of the importance of self-care across all generations, particularly the younger ones. Self-care refers to any intentional activity to take care of your emotional or physical health. Millennials and Gen Z report high levels of stress and anxiety and are turning to self-care solutions, particularly meditation and mindfulness for mental and body wellbeing.

We believe that proper self-care puts you in the right mind space to look after others.

As a company built on the power of community, we know everyone has more to give when they feel good.

That’s why we created Enrichual; a new plant-focused product line to inspire people to take the time to practice self-care and nurture their body and mind.

Enrichual: Topical Hemp Products That Inspire Self-Care

Enrichual includes two hemp cannabinoid-based skincare products:

Hemp Relief Balm

  • Formulated with 1,000 mg of hemp-cannabinoids with antioxidant activity per jar.
  • Moisturizing and nurturing: harmonious plant-based oils, including shea butter, jojoba, and hemp seed oil.
  • Calming and relaxing: a spa-like aroma from essential oils of lavender, eucalyptus, frankincense, and geranium.
  • Instantly soothing: a cooling touch of menthol and camphor.

Hemp Facial Serum

  • Formulated with 250 mg of broad-spectrum hemp cannabinoids with antioxidant activity per bottle.
  • Hydrating and moisturizing: lightweight plant-based oils squalene, argan, and hemp seed to deeply moisturize, smooth, and rejuvenate your skin
  • Protective antioxidants: enriched with vitamins C and E to help neutralize skin-damaging free radicals
  • Smooth, soft radiant skin: scientifically formulated with bakuchiol, safflower, and meadowfoam seed oils. Bakuchiol helps minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and brighten the appearance of skin.

The products are formulated with broad-spectrum hemp extract, our flagship ingredient for Enrichual. Our extract is sourced from the flower, leaves, and stems. THC has been reduced below limits of detection and the 3rd party test results of every batch are posted online.

The Philosophy Behind a Name

As we were developing these new products, we kept one question in mind: how do we enrich the lives of people? We realized how stressful the daily hustle and bustle can be. A daily ritual of self-care — whether it’s your morning tea and time to clear your mind before work, or an afternoon walk to unplug, or an evening bath before bed — is critical to maintaining a sense of self and wellbeing. It dawned on us, to combine “enrich” and “ritual” to create the unique word Enrichual.

Enrichual is based on four pillars:

Plant Power

Each product in our Enrichual portfolio is centered around hemp, with accompanying botanicals and essential oils, such as lavender, jojoba, coconut, eucalyptus, geranium, among others.

Quality Sourcing

Robust vetting of hemp extractors was the starting point: we carefully source the high-quality hemp, which undergoes multiple points of testing for pesticides, heavy metals, residual solvents, and of course is tested to have non-detectable THC in the products.

Sustainability

We deliver these thoughtfully crafted products in amber glass bottles to protect the integrity of the botanicals and reduce our use of plastics. Additionally, no Enrichual product or ingredient has been tested on animals and is formulated without parabens or sulfates

Nourish Body & Mind

We’ve been nourishing the body for over 40 years with high-quality, nutritious products that have become part of our customers’ daily routines. As a leader in the health and wellness industry, we offer our customers tools to enrich their lives, and believe that good health encompasses physical and mental wellbeing. Enrichual honors the value of daily self-care and inspires us to nurture the body and calm the mind.

Emphasis on Quality

We spent nearly two years conducting R&D before launching Enrichual to ensure we produce a high-quality product that is safe, efficacious, and delivers on label claims through the expiration date. We work carefully to make sure quality is at the center of every stage of the process:

  • Sourcing quality hemp extract: It took us several months to identify a top supplier, and then we engaged in a 6-month audit of their physical extraction facility and documentation analysis. The goal is to ensure hemp is lawfully grown, processed to GMP standards, free of contaminants, and consistent from batch to batch.
  • Chain of custody testing: Of critical importance is ensuring the product is compliant and does not contain detectable THC. We established a rigorous quality control program with several testing points: at the farms during hemp growth, at the time of harvest, before, during, and after extraction, before shipment of the hemp-extract to the manufacturing plant, after incorporation into the product blend, and then after bottling with an independent lab.
  • Product safety and efficacy testing: We had an independent clinical lab conduct dermatological testing for skin irritation and safety on the formulations, and had product efficacy tests conducted. These are expensive studies, but since we as a company value science so highly, see this is a necessary investment.
  • 3rd party validation: We publish 3rd party test results for THC and cannabinoids of every batch online, and via the QR code on the cartons. We strive for transparency and want you to feel confident in the products.
  • Conscious Formulations: Enrichual products do not have any added parabens or sulfates. They are not tested on animals and are dermatologist-tested for safety.

Taking time to identify the right blend of botanicals, textures, and aromas to create Enrichual with the desired consistency, efficacy, and stability reflects our commitment to ensuring consumers receive high-quality products to help them lead a healthier, balanced life.
