What is in our organic CBD products?
Organic Hemp Flower Extract
The source of our CBD, a non-intoxicating plant compound responsible for regulating homeostasis. CBD has very powerful anti-inflammatory properties which help support the skin’s natural healing processes. CBD also contains potent antioxidants - more powerful than vitamin C and E. CBD binds to a special set of receptors in the skin known as TRPV-1 receptors, where it can help feelings of heat, itch, and pain, which explains CBD's soothing effect on the skin. The anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties of CBD naturally help improve skin conditions such as rosacea, eczema and psoriasis. By using the flowers of the hemp plant to source our cannabidiol, we ensure you are provided with the full spectrum of cannabinoids, allowing for a synergistic healing effect, as nature intended.
Organic CBD Oil
A non-intoxicating compound extracted from the flowers of the hemp plant that helps regulate homeostasis (balance) throughout the body. CBD works naturally by binding to TRPV-1 and GPR55 receptors in the skin that play a role in inflammation and pain signalling. CBD has very powerful anti-inflammatory properties and contains more potent antioxidants than vitamins C and E. Supplementation of this cannabinoid aids pain relief, mood, memory and sleep.
Organic Hemp Oil
This oil contains the perfectly balanced 3:1 ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3 essential fatty acids, offering the richest, most balanced natural source of EFAs known on earth.
Organic Coconut Oil
This penetrates easily into the skin moisturising deeply and like Shea butter is also high in Vitamin E which offers significant antioxidant properties to help defend from pollution and other environmental stressors. The triglycerides in the oil attract protein molecules, ensuring timely repair of the collagen layer. 50% of coconut oil is lauric acid which is hydrating and antimicrobial. The antibacterial properties of coconut oil protect the skin from potential pathogens and can reduce the risk of bacterial infections. Coconut Oil is the ideal carrier for CBD due to its high levels of essential fatty acids which act as a binding agent, allowing for superior nutrient and cannabinoid absorption.
Organic Shea Butter
This is a fat that has been extracted from African Shea tree nuts, high in Vitamin A, Vitamin E and cinnamic acid. It contains extensive anti-inflammatory properties, and offers long-lasting moisturising effects. Shea butter aids in the skin’s natural collagen production and contains oleic, stearic, palmitic, and linolenic acids that protect and nourish the skin to prevent drying and combats oxidative stress. These properties help your skin to have a healthy turnover of new cells, supporting firmness and promoting radiance. Shea butter even helps prevent skin damage from the sun's UV rays, with a natural SPF rating of 6. We use only raw, unrefined organic shea butter in our Body Balm to ensure none of the natural benefits are lost.
Raw Cacao Powder Raw
organic cacao powder is different from the more commonly available cocoa powder. Cacao has 40 times the amount of antioxidants of blueberries, is full of anti-inflammatory flavanols, and is packed with mood-enhancing compounds which release endorphins.
Organic Lavender Essential Oil
A classic among essential oil lovers, lavender belongs to the mint family and is excellent at balancing your skin’s moisture barrier so it isn’t too oily or too dry. Another of our ingredients that is high in anti-inflammatory properties, lavender is great for soothing and healing irritated skin. It is a natural antiseptic and a potent source of antioxidants and other beneficial phytochemicals that fight free radical damage - caused by environmental stressors like the sun and pollution.
Organic Patchouli Essential Oil
This is extracted by steam distillation of the leaves of the patchouli plant, which belongs to the same family as Lavender. Patchouli has a grounding, balancing, calming scent and carries anti-inflammatory and anti-depressant properties. This mild sedative acts as an aphrodisiac, stimulating the release of serotonin and dopamine, thereby facilitating positive moods and enhancing the feeling of relaxation.
Organic Sunflower Lecithin
Dehydrated sunflower is separated into three parts: gum, oil, and solids - sunflower lecithin comes from the gum and is processed via cold press. It contains anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, and acts as a natural emollient, helping keep the skin feeling soft.
Coconut Blossom Syrup
Also known as coconut blossom nectar, this comes from the sweet sap that is produced from tapping the thick stalks or stems of the flowering coconut blossom. Heated at low temperatures, the caramel-coloured liquid syrup is concentrated in natural sugars and is nutrient-rich, considerably high in amino acids, minerals and many vitamins.
Please note all of our CBD products contain less than 0.2% THC
