KNOW YOUR INGREDIENTS // The Benefits of Witch Hazel

Blog | July 20, 2018

Here at Hempathy, we take our ingredients seriously. It’s what sets us apart from other CBD creams and lotions! We use only all natural, Earth-derived ingredients that add to the healing qualities of our product. Here’s where we highlight some of the best ingredients that make up Hempathy Therapy Cream.

Witch Hazel is derived from the bark and leaves of Hamamelis virginiana, the common or North American witch-hazel shrub, and has long been known for its healing qualities.

The Anti-Inflammatory properties of witch hazel make it an effective and safe remedy for soothing irritated skin, whether from sunburn or bug bites. Apply Hempathy Therapy Cream after a day in the sun and the Witch Hazel, CBD Extract, Aloe Vera and Calendula will all work to soothe the inflamed skin, ease itching and prevent peeling. This also makes it an effective ingredient to treat varicose veins, by reducing the swelling and pain.

Witch Hazel is also an Antimicrobial and Astringent, which works to reduce free radicals that age the skin. Less free radicals mean skin that is more youthful and taut. Between the Witch Hazel, Grapefruit & Lemongrass Essential Oils in Hempathy Therapy Cream, you’ll get a triple threat of antioxidant fighters that reduce bacteria growth on the skin while speeding up the healing of scars and bruises.

Finally, Witch Hazel acts as a Moisturizer by removing the stuff you don’t want, like excess oil and impurities. If you apply Hempathy Therapy Cream right after a shower, the Witch Hazel along with the CBD Hemp Extract, Shea Butter and Avocado Oil will seal in moisture while nourishing the skin.

Always take care of your skin, it’ll be with you for life! For a complete list of ingredients, check out our FAQ section and we’ll continue to highlight all of the Hempathy Therapy Cream benefits here on the blog. #HempathyHealing
