Know Your Ingredients: Healing Butters

Blog | September 20, 2018

What sets Hempathy apart from other CBD creams is the luscious texture. Our therapy cream is rich and creamy without being greasy, thanks to the addition of four key butter ingredients that are known for a variety of healing benefits in the skincare world. Here’s a look at what’s inside:

Shea Butter:

Shea Butter does more than moisturize… it delivers key anti-inflammatory and anti-aging components right into the skin. Shea butter is considered a “skin superfood” and is naturally rich in vitamins A, E and F, so it provides the skin with essential fatty acids and the nutrients necessary for collagen production. One compound in particular in Shea Butter, lupeol cinnamate, was found to reduce skin inflammation and even potentially help avoid skin mutations. This also makes it beneficial for some people with acne.

Cocoa Butter:

Cocoa butter not only hydrates the skin — it helps actually heal it from the inside out too. Cocoa beans are a great source of natural antioxidants, since they contains a significant amount of polyphenol and flavanoid antioxidants. Saturated fats are especially beneficial for healing dry, cracked skin because they’re easily absorbed and remain on the skin for hours.

Kokum Seed Butter:

Kokum butter is non greasy and gets absorbed into the skin once you apply. It is often use as a substitute for Cocoa Butter due to its triglyceride composition. Kokum butter also contains antioxidant vitamin E, and is believed to promote skin elasticity, prevention of skin dryness, and restoration of damaged skin.

Mango Seed Butter:

As with most natural fruits, the seed has just as many benefits as the flesh. Mango butter is known in skincare for its moisturizing essential fatty acids. It’s rich in oleic acid, a mono-unsaturated omega-9 acid; and stearic acid, a saturated fatty acid. These are ingredients that the skin readily recognizes, takes up, and uses to help add moisture to the skin and tightens and firms.

So go ahead and slather on Hempathy Therapy Cream to dry or irritated skin, or as your regular daily skin routine. It not only moisturizes, it heals your skin from the inside out. #HempathyHealing
