Let's call a spade a spade: This cream does, indeed, smell a bit like hemp and so probably isn't the best to apply right before waltzing into the office or boarding a flight to Mexico. But hemp is one of the most effective moisturizing agents around, having been endowed with an incredibly dense concentration of polyunsaturated essential fatty acids, such as omega-3 and omega-6, for human skin. This cream comes mixed with beeswax, which adds a protective layer that allows the hands to breathe without becoming slick or greasy. A bit of edification for those who prize products made with conscience: The Body Shop obtains all its hemp and beeswax from community fair-trade suppliers in the U.K. [$10 for 3.3 oz; bodyshop-usa.com]
