Using CBD for skin care as part of your routine

CBD for Skin Care, CBD Coconut Oil

One of our all-time favourite products, and best product when used when applying CBD for skin care, is our Organic CBD Coconut Oil. Its is so loved for being endlessly versatile. Containing Broad Spectrum CBD extract infused into unpasteurised coconut oil. Simple and pure, with just three ingredients!

If you’re looking for an all-in-one moisturiser and CBD oil this one’s for you

What can I use it for?

Whatever you like! Coconut oil is an incredible resource for hydrating and soothing the skin. It even creates a barrier over the skin to protect it from external factors like temperature changes and air pollution. The skin absorbs it easily, and it smells great too! And remember just that, whatever you can do with coconut oil, you can do with CBD Coconut too! Just with extra, the added bonus properties.

By using only using organic ingredients, we ensure that our products are free of toxins or harmful chemicals. It’s important, when using CBD for skin care, to make sure they are clean and safe. Using virgin coconut oil also preserves the phytonutrients. So you’re getting as many benefits as we can squeeze into a jar!

CBD topical’s are often a cream, balm or salve acting as a base for the CBD, which is infused or added to it. Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of over 100 cannabinoids found in the industrial hemp plant, or cannabis sativa as it is also known. It is non-psychoactive and works by interacting with receptors in the endocannabinoid system (ECS). All mammals have an ECS and the human body even produces its own cannabinoids. You can even find CBD in breast milk!

Topical CBD products are all the rage because they offer us a great way to add CBD oil into our routines without ingesting it. The skin is the largest organ and our immediate connection to the outside environment, so it’s well worth looking after!

How do I use it?

You can use this product in exactly the same way as the earlier versions of this product, if you have bought it from us before! As it contains exactly the same ingredients.

When used as CBD for skin care, you could rub a little onto your temples at night. Or use it as a decadent moisturiser after a soothing bath.

If you have any specific aches or pains, try it out on those too. You could also go for our CBD Muscle Oil with added essential oils of ginger, rosemary and black pepper. Both these oils can be used for massage. 

What’s in it?

We believe that anything you put on your skin should be good enough to eat. That’s why you won’t find any chemicals or additives in this oil. Just pure coconut oil and at least 500mg organic CBD oil per jar. This product actually contains the broadest amount of cannabinoids that we offer, as its contains natural extract.

Our mission is to bring hemp-based solutions to people, community and planet. We are always striving to reduce our environmental impact. Especially when it comes to the packaging too! You can reuse your glass jar or recycle it along with the metal lid when you’re done.

Coconut oil is more solid in cooler temperatures so it might need to sit out the fridge for a while if you’re keeping it in there. You can refrigerate it once opened to make it last longer, but it will do just fine in a cupboard too. Make sure to keep it out of direct sunlight so it continues past the ‘best before’ date!

Didn’t you used to be able to eat it too?

Absolutely. Unfortunately, since the Novel Foods legislation came into effect at the end of March 2021, all our CBD must now be sold as cosmetics and not as food or food supplements.

We’re doing our best to keep bringing you the products you know and love. To keep up to date with all the new changes, follow us on social media or subscribe to our newsletter in the box at the foot of this page.

Here are our top tips for how to incorporate some self-care CBD time into your routine!

  1. Soften the coconut oil between your hands and rub a little on pressure points behind the ears or on your temples.

  2. In the bath or shower, rub the coconut oil over your skin for an easy boost of moisture.

  3. While your hair or beard is wet, massage a little coconut oil into the ends and let it dry. Coconut oil helps to trap the moisture into the hair!

  4. Keep a jar near to hand! Either on your desk so you can give your hands a treat throughout the day. Taking a few minutes to look away from the screen and have a stretch, as this is so important to our mental and physical wellbeing.

  5. Sharing is caring! A lot of people know about CBD… But a lot of people don’t! Let your loved ones in on the secret and spread the self-care spirit far and wide 😉
