.Bourgeoisie; for the skin
The world of CBD wellness is growing and growing we have talked of it here for several years now and the trend for these added-value products is not slowing down.
The latest company to catch our imagination is the brand Apothem labs. A holistic set of products that mix CBD with other botanicals to provide pure natural items that heal and balance. All are vegan, organically cultivated, cruelty-free and are also free from sulphates, pesticides and heavy metals.
Very interesting is that that company grows its own hemp crop. They are extremely proud to have nurtured their very own seeds to harvest from their EU-registered crop of hemp growing in the hills of Southern Spain.
The brand says ‘Whilst CBD is an active ingredient in all of our products, we’re obsessed with the benefits of botanical extracts too. Our experience in plant benefits, aromatherapy and cannabis mean we are devoted to creating and blending all of our own unique formulas to develop beautiful products that we believe will make a difference in setting the new standard. We have carefully sourced and selected all of our botanical plant extracts to compliment the CBD ensuring every single ingredient in our collection is there for a reason and designed to work in harmony with each other’.
So what is the offering from them?
Firstly the drops collection made up of Day, Light Out and Defense. Day, as expected, is an elixir that can be used at any time of the day in order to sharpen the mind for clarity of thought and for a balanced frame of mind. Made up of Pure CBD Isolate with Vegan MCT Oil. (MCT” or medium-chain triglycerides are the molecules that make up most fats, and medium-chain refers to the length of the fat molecule’s tail. These fats occur naturally in things like coconut oil, palm oil etc)
Lights Out, again is, as suggested an elixir for the evening and for sleep
‘A unique blend specially created to help you wind down at the end of the day. Formulated with pure CBD, L-THEANINE (L–theanine is an amino acid found most commonly in tea leaves and in small amounts in Bay Bolete mushrooms. It can be found in both green and black tea. Research indicates that L–theanine promotes relaxation without drowsiness) and CHAMOMILE, Lights Out helps to quieten a busy mind and encourage a deeper, more restorative night’s sleep’.
The last of the three drops is the all-important Defense. ‘Give your immune system a reboot with the blend of pure CBD and supportive active botanicals including SHIITAKE MUSHROOM, GINGER, and ECHINACEA. Designed to provide a supercharged boost to help get you back on your feet whenever you need it, leaving you feeling rejuvenated and re-energised.’
The added botanicals are Echinacea, Ginger, Elderberry and Olive leaf extract.
There is also the body collection with four different products. Firstly the Multi- a balm for all-weathers, all-occasions a pure CBD balm blended with hand-picked botanicals including GREEN TEA EXTRACT and MANGO BUTTER.
Every single ingredient is added for its skin-soothing benefits. A super-hydrating, multi-purpose skin salve with antioxidants and natural emollients to help replenish dryness, soothe irritation and reinstate a feeling of natural suppleness.
The Recharge is a blend created especially to re-energise overworked bodies. Combining pure CBD with WHITE WILLOW to gently help ease aches and pains, ARNICA to heal, and antioxidant-rich GREEN TEA to reduce inflammation, it also contains MENTHOL and ROSEMARY for an added cooling antidote to irritated skin.
Unplug is a CBD-infused bath salt. Enriched with active botanicals and minerals including ARNICA and MAGNESIUM, which will help to soothe aching muscles and induce a feeling of deep calm and relaxation.
Lastly, Sculpt a body oil, perfect for dull listless skin it comes with a blend of GREEN COFFEE OIL to help stimulate blood flow, GINGER and MORINGA SEED OIL to enliven skin and GLASSWORT and BIRCH to reduce inflammation and irritation.
One of the most interesting facets to this brand is the use of botanicals that have been known for hundreds of years for their healing properties, and now with the law changed on the use of CBD this brand is able to bring the benefits of long know herbology alongside the gifts of CBD
