The cannabinoids produced by the hemp plant interact with the endocannabinoids in our skin to soften, smooth, and beautify. And it’s not only the cannabinoids. Our full spectrum hemp extract also includes the terpenes that help the CBD to work better, the minor cannabinoids that contribute to the entourage effect, and the fatty acids from the plant that our skin can use as building blocks to produce our own endocannabinoids. On top of that, we feature a mighty array of botanical ingredients to support the power of hemp for the skin.
Besides our full spectrum CBD rich hemp extracts, our balms contain these wonderful botanical ingredients.
· Sweet Almond Oil – Since ancient times, Hindus have used a paste of crushed almonds as a cleanser of the body. Now one of the most frequently used oils in beauty products, it's used in formulas designed to reduce fine lines, moisturize the skin, and create a glow. Almond oil is a powerful antioxidant ingredient that functions as an ideal massage oil. It is non-comedogenic (does not block the pores) and is extremely well-tolerated, even for delicate baby skin.
· Beeswax – Utilized for skin health since before written history, beeswax has the unique property of causing three different kinds of moisturizing:
o Humectant – pulling moisture from the air to the skin
o Emollient – directly moisturizing the skin
o Occlusive – creating a barrier to seal in moisture (a German study found beeswax superior to other barrier creams)

Especially nonreactive, it’s used for chronic winter dryness as well as in products for those with sensitive skin.
