In Quebec, we do indeed live in the North. At Chanv, it is the North that lives in us. It inspires our formulations as well as our temperament. Its coldness strengthens us. It urges us to redouble our efforts to ensure our well-being and yours. Like its flora, we adapt to sudden weather changes. The North is a quiet and wise force. It conserves its resources and energy. So do we.

For 20 years, Chanv has been concocting skin care products that shine, like the North Star, with the benefits of the robust hempseed of Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean. We also draw from a natural Quebecois spring water source, out of respect for our territory.

It is not new that this star guides and inspires the audacious who make the North their home. It encapsulates alone all the natural beauty of our hemisphere. From this celestial source of inspiration, we make a down-to-earth application that is felt right through to your skin. That is why our logo distills it into a drop of Chanv™ oil.


The cold chain, this crucial step in our process, connects our hearts to our Nordic environment. To begin, the harvest of mature plants under an almost icy climate preserves the unique and incomparable properties of the seeds. Then, the seeds are delicately separated from the other parts of the plant during a process called screening, in order to preserve their purity for the next steps.

The extraction of Chanv Oil™, through cold pressing, protects its nutritional properties and guarantees superior quality. During transport, it is kept at a cold temperature to prevent any deterioration. Finally, Chanv Oil™  is stored in our large, airtight cold tanks, where its freshness and quality are contained, far from any oxidation. 

By respecting this cold chain, Chanv is committed to offering you a superior product, preserving the exceptional properties of our region. Connect with the North, and feel its strength and wisdom in every drop of Chanv Oil™ that you apply to your skin.

Chanv Oil™

All of our products contain this vegetable oil with numerous virtues. It's as if in a single drop were concentrated all the forces that the boreal nature has developed to withstand its unpredictable climate.

Chanv Oil™ is ideal for all skin types. It is rich in vitamins A, B, and E, so it is very nourishing. Its antioxidant properties help fight signs of aging, and its use restores radiance to the skin by firming its texture. It protects the skin against the changing and extreme conditions typical of the Nordic climate.

Fortunately, nature does things well. Chanv Oil™  has an ideal ratio of omega-3 and 6, very close to that of sebum. Your skin instinctively absorbs it, making the forces of nature your own.

Chanv is a palpable manifestation of this natural harmony between the North and you, to be applied daily.
