Cannabella is more than just a skincare brand - it's a testament to the power of family and the human spirit.
The Stiegler brothers - Matthew, Michael, and Timothy - founded Cannabella after witnessing their mother Denese's battle with stage four B cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Like many cancer patients, Denese struggled with painful side effects from chemotherapy and radiation, including ulcers and dehydrated skin. The brothers were frustrated with the lack of effective and natural skincare options available to their mother, so they decided to take matters into their own hands.
The eldest, Matt, transformed their family kitchen into a skincare lab and began experimenting with different ingredients. He eventually discovered the benefits of hemp oil, a natural ingredient high in essential omegas that provide hydration without clogging pores. From there, the brothers developed a range of organic hydration serums that helped their mother and other cancer patients manage their skin concerns during treatment.
The word soon spread about the effectiveness of Cannabella's products, and the brand was born. By using natural and organic ingredients to create effective skincare products, the Stiegler brothers have shown that anyone can make a difference in the world. "It's definitely turned a negative into a positive," says Matt.
The Key Ingredient
At the heart of Cannabella's products is hemp oil, a versatile and nourishing ingredient that is derived from the seeds of the hemp plant. Hemp oil is rich in essential fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals, making it an ideal ingredient for skincare products. Cannabella sources its hemp oil from Australian growers, ensuring that it is of the highest quality and sustainably produced.
Its commitment to using natural ingredients goes beyond just hemp oil. The brand also incorporates other plant-based ingredients such as avocado oil, chamomile extract, and calendula extract into its products. These ingredients are carefully selected for their beneficial properties and work together to soothe and nourish the skin.
One of Cannabella's flagship products is its hemp oil-based body lotion La Tropica. This lotion is designed to provide deep hydration and nourishment to the skin, leaving it feeling soft and smooth. The lotion is also infused with essential oils such as lavender and rosemary, which provide a relaxing and uplifting scent.
Planet and Environment
Cannabella's products are not only effective but also eco-friendly. The brand is committed to using recyclable packaging materials and reducing its environmental footprint wherever possible. Its products are also cruelty-free and vegan, making them a great choice for conscious consumers who want to make a positive impact on the planet.
A Happy Ending
The Stiegler brothers’ journey from watching their mother go through chemotherapy to suffering the side effects after, to then creating this organic skincare brand has been nothing short of inspiring. With their happy ending, the Stiegler brothers have shown that it's possible to create positive change in the world, one natural product at a time.
