Hey Bud: Mates sell 10,000 hemp products in just five days

A trio of best friends have sold more than 10,000 products in five days after launching two new hemp-infused products for their successful skincare range.

Oliver Watts, 26, Fedele D’Amico, 25, and Alex Roslaniec, 26, from Melbourne, started their business hey budo only 20 months ago and have quickly made a name for themselves in the skin care industry.

The two new additions — the $32.99 Hemp Gel Cleanser and the $44.99 Hyaluronic Acid Hemp Serum — had a waiting list of 27,000 customers, and the first 10,000 units sold out within five days of launch.

The cleanser is formulated with hemp seed oil to regulate the oil balance on the skin, while the lightweight serum contains hyaluronic acid, cucumber and betaine for a plumper and hydrated skin tone.

Five-star reviews and before and after photos have poured in from customers raving about their results, with many noting a significant reduction in redness, acne and excess oil.

‘They’ve done it again! So excited that Hey Bud has come up with more hemp products. Their cleanser and serum are to die for,” one woman wrote.

‘I have been very happy with the results since using your products, especially the serum! I’ve had problem skin since I was a teenager and I’m still in my mid-50s. These products are beautiful to use and smell divine.’

Why is hemp seed oil beneficial for the skin?

Hemp seed oil contains a powerful omega-6 fatty acid called Gamma-Linolenic Acid.

Since it’s an essential fatty acid, it means your body doesn’t make it on its own and has to get it from outside sources.

While promoting new cell generation and skin growth, Gamma-Linolenic Acid also has anti-inflammatory properties.

This soothing effect on the skin helps prevent irritation, which can lead to a reduction in acne and psoriasis, while restoring the skin’s moisture barrier.

Since its launch in 2019, Hey Bud has become the number one hemp skin care brand in Australia and has served over 100,000 customers.

The brand has more than doubled its sales each year and is on track to reach $10 million in revenue by 2022.

Hey Bud became famous with his $49.99 hemp face mask which claims to fade pigmentation, dark spots and scars; the men came up with the idea of ​​selling cannabis skincare after Fedele’s mother, a beautician, ordered hemp seed oil products from the United States in 2018.

She found that hemp seed oil perfectly hydrated her face and reduced redness around her most sensitive areas. At the moment it was very difficult to find hemp products from Australia,” Alex previously told FEMAIL.

“After extensive research and insight into the benefits of hemp for the skin, we came up with the idea of ​​bringing high quality hemp skin care to Australia.

‘We worked with one of Australia’s most experienced chemists to obtain our first sample. From there, the brand exploded with many customers loving our natural vegan mask.”

Hey Bud saw sales jump 1,160 percent in the six-month period between March 2020 and August 2020, when the country was in a coronavirus lockdown and sold out twice.

“We noticed a huge influx of new customers during the pandemic with the rise of the self-care movement and we were excited to support our customers through a difficult time, making their wine and Netflix night feel just that little bit better with a face mask,” said Ollie.

They attribute their success to the fact that it does what it promises – tightens pores and leaves the skin free of oil.
