April 23rd, 2019 – Vancouver, B.C. – The Yield Growth Corp. (CSE:BOSS) (OTC:BOSQF) (Frankfurt: YG3) announces it has been successful in its application to obtain an International Nomenclature Cosmetic Ingredient (INCI) name for its novel ingredient, hemp root oil, which it manufactures with its patent pending extraction technology and uses in 150 of its cannabis and hemp based beauty and wellness formulas.
The Personal Care Products Council (PCPC) assigned the INCI name “Cannabis Sativa Root Extract” to the hemp root oil manufactured by Yield Growth.
INCI names are uniform, systematic names internationally recognized to identify cosmetic ingredients. They are published by the PCPC in the International Cosmetic Ingredient Dictionary and Handbook, available electronically as wINCI. By working closely with its international sister trade associations and with other organizations around the world, PCPC strives to develop INCI names that accommodate the differing labeling approaches required by national laws and regulations.
“We serve mainstream luxury consumers who seek sophisticated wellness products and we are now engaging with luxury retail stores about launching our products internationally,” says Yield Growth CEO Penny Green. “Having an assigned INCI name for our key ingredient Hemp Root Oil will make it easier for us to create international labels for our products as we roll out international expansion.”
Yield Growth’s flagship consumer brand, Urban Juve, has proprietary, patent-pending hemp root oil extraction technology and formulas. Urban Juve currently has 11 products for sale in the U.S.A. and Canada and is currently expanding to China. Yield Growth’s cannabis infused topicals brand, Wright & Well, combines hemp root oil with cannabinoids such as THC and CBD and other ingredients intended for pain relief and is launching next month in Oregon, U.S.A.
Yield Growth recently filed a Patent Co-operation Treaty patent application to protect its cannabis root extraction technology designed to preserve potentially therapeutic compounds in the cannabis root and enhance penetration of the skin. This application can be used as a basis for obtaining patent protection in over 170 countries.
