VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Jan. 22, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Yield Growth Corp. (CSE:BOSS) (BOSQF) announces that its subsidiary Urban Juve has registered 3 Urban Juve Skin Exfoliants as cosmetics with Health Canada, bringing the total number of Health Canada Urban Juve registered products to 29.
The three exfoliants are meticulously formulated with non-toxic ingredients to benefit each of the three targeted skin types as understood in the Ayurvedic system. Each body exfoliant combines botanical oils with a base of finely ground Himalayan Salt rich in 84 trace minerals for immediate skin absorption. This high mineral content of Himalayan salt helps maintain the protective barrier of the skin allowing it to hold in hydration without causing wrinkling, while removing dead skin cells. The products have passed all required testing for manufacture in Canada. The product will be sold in 100mL glass jars with a suggested retail price of $25 per unit.
The Canadian government has announced proposed legislative changes to make Cannabis topicals fully legal for sale in Canada no later than October 17, 2019. Cannabis topicals include products containing cannabis as an ingredient that are intended to be used on external body surfaces, including skin, hair, and nails.
Yield Growth subsidiary, UJ Topicals, has the rights to infuse the 3 exfoliants with THC and CBD and is currently aligning with licensed cannabis manufacturers so that it can be prepared to go to market in Canada in late 2019 when the cannabis topicals laws are anticipated to be become law.
According to cannabis industry analysts the Brightfield Group, the hemp-CBD market alone could hit $22 billion by 2022.
