About us

Mender was founded in 2017 by April Cole Worley (pictured left in Big Sur) in San Luis Obispo, California. A creative agency veteran with a Master's Degree in Public Policy from Cal Poly State University, April continues to lead the company. The Mender brand was brought to life by designer Ariel Rosso and current Mender Creative Director Jesse Mireles (pictured right in Lake Tahoe), whose talents range from award-winning wine brands to international agency work.

Headquartered on the beautiful Central Coast of California, Mender creates hemp CBD body and skincare for all humankind.

Our collections are developed using only fresh, all-natural ingredients. Each Mender product thoughtfully contains rich essential oils, organic botanicals, locally sourced ingredients whenever possible and the highest quality organic hemp CBD from one of 13 companies to pass the stringent standards set forth for Certification by the US Hemp Authority. Zero phenoxyethanol, zero hydrogenated oils or processed waxes, zero isopropyl myristate or other propane derivatives that may cause inflammation, our products are clean, potent and formulated and packaged in-house to ensure safety and the highest quality. 

From treating chronic pain as a result of years of living adventurously in our bodies, to the peace of mind that comes from knowing the source of every ingredient we are using in our skincare routine, we are proud to bring you the tried and true products we use on the daily.
