All of these products contain hemp root oil, which is produced with a proprietary patent pending extraction method. Urban Juve has filed 11 US provisional patents to protect its extraction method and formulas. Yield intends to infuse some of these products with THC and CBD and distribute them in Oregon through its recently announced distribution agreement.
With the completion of the stability testing on 9 new products, Yield subsidiaries Urban Juve and UJ Topicals expect to have at least 22 different products for sale in the US and Canada by April 2019.
Cosmetics and personal care products are subjected to a variety of different tests prior to being sold in the marketplace. Specific testing includes the evaluation of product stability for microbiological or chemical contamination. Preservatives help prevent the growth of microbiological contamination after production and protect the product from deterioration.
Stability testing provides the evidence for the quality of the product under different environmental factors like temperature, humidity and light to determine and confirm a suitable shelf life and product expiration date.
