Hemp seed oil at 80% has the highest percentage of essential fatty acids found in plants. It has the ideal ratio of Omega 3 to Omega 6 and it's structure closely resembles the skin's own lipids. Hemp so closely matches our own skin's oils that it is able to penetrate inside our cells and lubricate the surfaces between them, thus bringing the EFA's within our body. Hemp seed oil also contains GLA, amino acids, potassioum, calcium, vitamin E, and is rich in Omega 9, helping to keep skin supple. Hemp seed oil contains ingredients that gives it unique anti-inflammatory properties that are not often found in other oils. Researchers from ETH Zurich and Bonn University have now established anti-inflammatory constituents in hemp oil. All of these amazing qualities make hemp oil the ideal base for a nourishing moisturiser.
Comfrey has been highly valued since at least Roman times. The allantoin contained in the plant is thought to help replace and thus repair cells in the body through its proliferant properties. Over 10,000 patents reference allantoin. Manufacturers cite several beneficial effects for allantoin as an active ingredient in over the counter cosmetics: a moisturizing and keratolytic effect, increasing the water content of the extracellular matrix and enhancing the desquamation of upper layers of dead skin cells, increasing the smoothness of the skin; promoting cell proliferation and wound healing; and a soothing, anti~irritant, and skin protectant effect. We use our own locally wild~harvested symphytum officinale which has been infused in organic extra virgin olive oil.

Calendula has also been nicknamed “Reflections of the Sun”, in which Calendula displays bright deep orange and yellow colored flowers, which close up at night, and open during the day.
