Empower BodyCare is a LGBTQ+, women-owned and operated business, based in Portland, Oregon. We first made waves in the CBD industry in 2013 with our signature CBD-Infused Topical Oil. This oil was initially formulated in 2004 by our company’s founder, Trista Okel, to help her mother manage pain. Trista’s mission to help others lead more comfortable, fulfilling lives remains unchanged – in fact, it has expanded alongside our product line. You’ll find Empower BodyCare CBD on store shelves and bathroom counters across the United States.


The idea for Empower BodyCare was first sparked by a fiery passion to help others and ease discomfort with high-quality, plant-based remedies. Our THC-free CBD products are approachable and non-intoxicating, removing the persistent stigma surrounding THC.

Pioneers in the industry, we’ve been crafting CBD-infused topicals since before many of today’s CBD companies existed. We know what works, what doesn’t and what takes a CBD product from average to exceptional.

Quality Ingredients

We’re proud to offer our customers consistent products infused with natural essential oils and CBD derived from sustainable, sun-grown USDA-certified organic hemp. We source responsibly and organically whenever possible. Moreover, our CBD topical products are vegan-friendly, non-GMO and do not contain any:

  • Sulfates
  • Phthalates
  • PEG
  • Formaldehyde
  • PG
  • Mineral oils
  • Parabens
  • Synthetic scents

When it comes to product development, we bring an unparalleled level of thought and research. This results in safe, effective high-quality products – and our customers can feel the difference.


We have made a commitment to our customers to only sell top-tier CBD products that actually contain what the label says. Transparency is a priority at Empower BodyCare – and that’s why every product batch is tested by a third-party lab through random lab sampling for potency, pesticides, heavy metals, solvents, microbiological activity and homogeneity. We’ve established a strong partnership with Columbia Labs – one of the leading food and cosmetics testing facilities in the country – to ensure test results are accurate and reliable.

Further, QR codes are clearly visible on every product and link directly to batch-specific Certificates of Analysis. You can also view the lab results on our website.

Effective Products

Empower BodyCare products are thoughtfully formulated to deliver the most benefit possible to each individual customer. All ingredients – including natural essential oils and CBD made from organically grown hemp – are specifically chosen for their therapeutic properties. Additionally, the ingredients work synergistically to support the overall wellness goal of each product.

Our products contain more CBD by volume than many other options available on the market. Customers can use a smaller amount of product per use to achieve the results seen with larger amounts of other brand’s products. Our philosophy? A little bit should go a long way.

Company Integrity

We guarantee our customers always receive a product that is fresh and top quality with conservative expiration dates and strict quality assurance protocols. Taking it a step further, we practice full FDA compliance on every product’s packaging and all marketing.

In addition, we have a strong commitment to corporate social responsibility, expanding and enhancing our company’s mission to help others and have a positive impact. We wouldn’t be here without the support of our community – and we want to give back. Over the years, we’ve partnered with nonprofits such as Breast Friends, Outside the Frame and Fearless.
