These CBD infused lipbalm were actually my first ever project, they were actually for my other business Hannabis – CBD Movement LTD but they were still a great project to start on.
So much research, as well as trail & error went into these lip balms, because to be completely honest I had never made anything like this before but thought it would be a good place to start. All I knew is that I wanted to keep the ingredients all natural & provide a healing lipbalm as Hannabis’ first ever product.
But four CBD infused lip balms were born!
- Juniper Berry & Tea Tree Lemon
- Lemon & Rosemary
- Mango & Guava
- Plump ‘Em
But let’s start with what I chose to use as the base of these lip balms. Most of them are a Cocoa butter & Vitamin E oil base, apart from the Mango & Guava lipbalm which is Mango butter instead of Cocoa butter. I chose to use Cocoa butter because it protective outer layer which our lips do not have & it also contains antioxidant vitamins A, C and E. Cocoa butter is also great for cold sores which is perfect for when people are reaching for those lip balms in the winter months. I chose to use Mango butter too because it’s fatty acid profile is different and it contains higher concentrations of nutrients. Part of what makes it such a healing ingredient is that it contains great amounts of vitamins A and C, whilst still providing that protective layer we don’t get naturally on our lips like the rest of our skin.
Now let’s look at those essential oils I chose to use & why…
Great source of vitamin C, as well as having anti-inflammatory, anticancer, antioxidant, antifungal and antibacterial properties.
