A dream and a courageous vision realised.
Ardent and life-long Hemp advocate, Teresa McDowell, established this unique South Australian business in 2006. Based in the Adelaide Hills city of Mount Barker, Hemp Hemp Hooray embodies everything about entrepreneurship and bold ambition.
Teresa, with the support of her husband and business partner Simon, is a well-recognised and respected pioneer and innovator in the Australian Hemp industry.
Frustrated by artificial and chemical-based skincare brands available to consumers, Teresa took matters into her own hands. In 2004 when her passion for aromatherapy and vision for industrial hemp collided, she created a natural skin and body care range using Australian grown Hemp Seed Oil as the base for all her products.
Since making her first, and most popular product, Skin Soothe, Teresa has transformed her hemp skincare range into a brand with passion and purpose. Her range quickly grew and gained a loyal following, with customers placing orders Australia-wide and overseas.
For more than 15 years Teresa has advocated and campaigned for reform around the way industrial Hemp is treated by Governments and society. Her ability to educate, inform and influence reform has unequivocally shaped the flourishing industry we have today.
The culmination of Teresa’s advocacy, alongside like-minded supporters, saw the introduction and the passage of a bill through the South Australian parliament and on November 12 2017, the commencement of the Industrial Hemp act 2017.
Her mission is to empower people to harness the hemp life and lead a healthy living.
