We’re Hälsa Botanicals

Based on the Swedish word for health, Hälsa Botanicals is a woman-owned and managed whole health company focused on luxury CBD skincare and topicals. Our mission is to harness the power of plants to promote natural wellness, combined with business practices that prioritize people and planet.

We incorporate the Swedish philosophy of natural, organic ingredients such as plant extracts, as well as an emphasis on hydration in our custom formulated skincare products. And our commitment to natural wellness includes using high quality, U.S.-sourced broad spectrum and full spectrum hemp oil. All of our products are tested by third party labs for CBD potency and purity.

Our Beginnings

Our company founder typically eschews complicated skin care routines and make-up. In fact, when she first told friends she was starting a skincare company, they thought she was joking.

But after investing in a cannabis business, Catherine Bander began studying the health benefits of CBD. She saw an opportunity to create skincare products that combine the power of botanical extracts and powerhouse ingredients like hyaluronic acid with the benefits of broad spectrum CBD. With the help of mentors in the beauty industry, she formulated the products with a goal of efficacy without chemical enhancement.

Scan our ingredient lists and you’ll find honeysuckle, elderflower, lavender, aloe, evening primrose, chamomile, black currant and eucalyptus. And our signature ingredient, Swedish twinflower oil - highly prized for its moisturizing properties - helped inspire us to name the company Hälsa. You'll also find skincare powerhouse ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, squalane, shea butter and more. 
Our Guiding Commitments

Health is not just the inspiration for our name; it’s also foundational to how we do business, guided by three commitments - to our customers, our country and our planet.

High quality, clean and effective products
We use organic ingredients where possible, including botanical oils. We source our CBD from domestically grown and extracted hemp and test all products via third party labs for CBD potency and purity. Our products are also vegan, non-GMO and cruelty free.

U.S. production
We use U.S. made materials wherever possible. We also work with domestic manufacturers and suppliers, even though their costs are often significantly higher. That’s because we’d rather sacrifice profit margin than impact U.S. jobs.

Sustainable practices
Our packaging is made from post-consumer waste and can be recycled and re-sourced after you recycle it. Our product boxes are made with 100% renewable energy. We believe that pretty packages should never require a sacrifice to our environment.

We think that’s a healthy way to do things.

What’s Cannabidiol (CBD)?

CBD stands for cannabidiol, a compound found naturally in hemp plants. Many people find it supports a sense of peace and wellness. It’s not intoxicating, so you can add CBD to your everyday routine without experiencing a high.

Hälsa uses US-sourced broad spectrum hemp CBD distillate for all products.
