Our purpose is to help you achieve the happy, healthy skin you deserve in a natural and sustainable way. We’re proud to provide a gentler and more effective alternative to the harsh synthetic ingredients and negative marketing which characterise the mainstream beauty industry today.
A passionate belief in the power of botanics to heal is what inspired us to create our award-winning range. Cannabella was born out of our desire to alleviate the terrible discomfort suffered by our Mum, when she was undergoing chemotherapy. Mum has since thankfully made a full recovery, but that fire in our belly remains and it motivates us to this day.
We’re committed to being a skincare company that actually cares – for your skin, for your health and for the planet.
When people find out we own a natural skincare company, the first question they usually ask is ‘what is the best skin oil for me’? Of course, we’re only too glad to help, and always begin by discussing the person’s needs, skin type and any concerns they have in regards to their skin.
You see, there are a vast range of skin oils on the market, from pure, plant-powered blended oils like those in our own range, through to inferior formulas which are bulked out with cheap, inactive ingredients. There are also many skin types, skin issues and ailments, as well as allergens to take into account. That’s why it’s important to analyse the ingredients, their benefits, any additives and what therapeutic value you can expect to gain from using that particular oil on your skin, before you go ahead and apply anything.
Within the Cannabella range, there are four skin oil treatments, each with a different – though in some instances overlapping – purpose and suitability. The first and simplest question is ‘where are you looking to apply your skin oil’? If you’re looking for a body oil to help nourish and smooth your skin, leaving it supple and smelling incredible, look no further than our La Tropica Body Oil. La Tropica is a heaven-scent blend of eleven different plant oils, including Unfiltered Hemp Oil, Watermelon Seed Oil, Camellia Oil and Jojoba Oil. It is also enriched with Caprylic triglyceride, which is made from combining Coconut Oil with glycerin. This compound creates a barrier on the skin’s surface that reduces dryness by locking in moisture. La Tropica is suitable for all skin types, and is formulated to soften and hydrate dry and sunburned skin.
If you answered ‘face’ instead of body to our first question, we have a choice of three hydrating botanical facial oils for you, depending on what you’re after. If your skin is beginning to show the signs of ageing – fine lines, increased dryness, loss of elasticity – we recommend our Complex CoQ10 Serum. Coenzyme Q10 is an antioxidant which helps to boost collagen, fight free radicals, and reduce signs of aging in our skin. It’s something our bodies naturally produce to help with growth and maintenance, however we make less than we need as we grow older. That’s where our serum – with its combination of Unfiltered Hemp Seed Oil, CoQ10, Vitamin A, and Vitamin C – can help. It’s specifically designed to address causes and symptoms of the aging process and start you on the path to nourished, glowing and more youthful-looking skin.
Aging not a concern for you? We recommend selecting between our Renewal, and Clarify serums. These are both suitable for those for whom fine lines are yet to be a key concern. Clarify is our ultra-lightweight clarifying face serum, designed to help alleviate the symptoms of acne for those prone to breakouts. With the anti-inflammatory benefits of Hemp Seed Oil combined with anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory Turmeric and Sandalwood, our Clarify Serum is a product any acne sufferer should try for noticeable improvements. Finally, our award-winning Renewal Serum is an outstanding ‘all rounder’ when it comes to facial oil-based products. Nourishing, soothing and super-quenching, may help to reduce early signs of ageing and improve your skin’s elasticity, tone and texture. Winner of the 2020 Cannabis Awards Product of the Year, this serum is form ulated with 14 different plant oils including (of course!) Hemp Seed Oil, Camellia Oil, Broccoli Seed Oil, Rosehip Oil and many more. This is our best-selling product for a reason – it has delivered improvements to skin tone, elasticity, moisture levels and appearance for hundreds of devoted customers.
We hope this helped you to work out which is the best in oil for you! As with all skincare products, always ‘patch test’ a small quantity of the product somewhere not visible to ensure there are no unknown allergies or sensitivities before applying to your face.
Seed Oil for skincare is emerging as a powerhouse ingredient in the world of clean beauty. It’s a powerful botanical ingredient and a ‘green beauty’ hero – not only for clear, radiant skin, but also for the environment. Crops help to promote a more sustainable world in many ways, including replenishing the soil as it grows.
Most traditional skincare products on the market are either petroleum-based (yes, the stuff you put in your car!) or full of hidden nasties, with unpronounceable pharmaceutical names. Many of these ingredients can do more harm to your health than good in the long run, which is why it is now more important than ever to turn our attention back to nature.
As an ingredient, Seed Oil for skincare offers unrivaled benefits. Recognised as one of nature’s most perfectly balanced oils, it contains ideal amounts of both the required essential fatty acids, which are great for long term human use. There are no other chemical combinations, nor plant-based sources that are able to match the natural benefits of seed for skincare.
The best thing about using Seed Oil for skincare is that it doesn’t discriminate. It loves and thrives on any and all skin types; oily skin, dry skin, ageing and aged skin, damaged, inflamed and sore skin as well as psoriasis, rosacea, eczema and acne prone skin. Apply Seed Oil to any skin type and it will dedicate itself to healing, nourishing and working absolute wonders for your skin.
Cannabella skincare is packed full of antioxidants, omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids, vitamin E, linoleic and oleic acids, and chlorophyll. With plenty of skin-loving vitamins to deliver the ultimate hydration, Seed Oil reigns supreme as a potent anti-aging agent. It will help to smooth-out fine lines and wrinkles, prevent signs of ageing, and regenerate and energise the skin’s protective layer. It can encourage new skin cell regeneration and will firm, tighten, brighten and repair stressed and dehydrated skin, while tirelessly combating those nasty free radicals!
Seed Oil skincare can easily replace your daily moisturiser, as it even has a UV protection factor of 6 – not enough for a full day in the summer sun, but plenty for brief periods in the sun such as a commute to work.
Try Seed Oil on your skin soon. It’s the perfect addition to your clean beauty regime!
We all get dry skin from time to time, but in winter especially, dry skin can become painful, cracked and peeling. It doesn’t feel great, it doesn’t look great, and it can be surprisingly difficult to treat.
Traditionally you would treat extremely dry and cracked skin with a cracked skin balm, an oil-based moisturiser or even lanolin or Sorbolene. Many commercial creams for extremely dry, cracked skin are full of chemical ingredients, including parabens.
Parabens are a chemical many people are looking to avoid these days, for good reason. Scientific studies suggest that parabens can disrupt hormones in the body and harm fertility and reproductive organs, affect birth outcomes, and increase the risk of cancer. https://www.ewg.org/what-are-parabens
This is where Cannabella Multi-purpose Balm comes in. Rich and soothing – yet light – our Multi-purpose Balm is free from petrochemicals and infused with Shea Butter and Beeswax, two aromatic ingredients which help skin draw in and retain moisture.
Cannabella Multi-purpose Balm is full of natural ingredients including fatty acids, Vitamin E and Vitamin A and of course, our hero ingredient, pure Hemp Seed Oil. This ‘green dream’ oil is high in Chlorophyll which means it also helps to inhibit bacteria growth on the skin.
