Active ingredients of Shea Butter and Cannabis Cream:
Shea Butter (comedogenic rating 0/5)
Organic Hemp Oil (comedogenic rating 0/5)
Hemp oil is suitable for all skin types and, especially, for oily skin and acne-prone skin. It is a fast absorbing oil that leaves no greasy feeling on the skin. It is also a natural emollient that provides skin with additional elasticity due to its ceramides. Its high content of fatty acids and antioxidants, in particular cannabidiol which has greater ability to capture free radicals than vitamin E, promotes the production and synthesis of collagen and elastin, and delays the appearance of skin aging symptoms such as wrinkles and fine lines while attenuating its effects. It is extremely high in essential fatty acids (70% – 90%) and very high in proteins and amino acids, which allows to claim that hemp oil is the most nutritious of all vegetable oils. It is also the one that has an essential fatty acid profile closer to that needed by the human body, with an Omega 6 / Omega 3 ratio of 3:1. Due to its cannabidiol (CBD) content, hemp oil has soothing effects on the skin, which places hemp oil as a natural alternative for acne treatment. It also has anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. It is very high in linoleic acid (Omega 6) and moderate in linolenic acid (Omega 3) and oleic acid (Omega 9).
Organic Rosehip Seed Oil (comedogenic rating 1/5)
Rosehip Seed Oil is suitable for all skin types and, especially, for oily skin, acne-prone skin and mature skin. It is a light oil that absorbs quickly without leaving a greasy feeling on the skin. It has emollient properties (moisturizes the skin in depth) as well as firming properties. Due to its high content of fatty acids and antioxidants, rosehip oil helps fight free radicals, promotes the production and synthesis of collagen and elastin, and delays the appearance of skin aging symptoms such as wrinkles and fine lines while attenuating its effects. In addition to its effects on the outer layers of the skin (epidermis), rosehip oil revitalizes the cells of its inner layers (dermis) so it is very useful to prevent and attenuate stretch marks, as well as to tone tired skin. Because of its trans-retinoic acid content, rosehip oil is a powerful cell regenerator and, at the same time, an excellent healing agent. It has analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties. It is a good cleansing oil / make-up remover. It is high in linoleic acid (Omega 6) and moderate in linolenic acid (Omega 3) and oleic acid (Omega 9).
