“As soon as the oil touched my skin I felt immediate relief with the soothing anti-inflammatory effects. After one more application the next morning my skin had turned a nice golden color and the pain was totally gone. This is definitely my new go-to for summer skincare!"

Is Your Skin Feeling Parched?
As the sun graces us with its warm embrace, it's crucial to show our skin some extra love after basking in its glow.
We know how important it is to take care of your skin after spending time under the sun's warm rays. That's why we're excited to remind you about our nutrient-dense Body Balm—a natural wonder carefully crafted with a blend of nurturing ingredients to restore and rejuvenate your skin after sun exposure.
A List of Body Balm Ingredients and Their Benefits for Skin
- Onda Oil: Our balm harnesses the healing power of Onda Oil– a whole hemp flower infusion made with hemp grown on organic, regenerative, and biodynamic farms. Rich in essential fatty acids and antioxidants, Onda Oil deeply nourishes and replenishes your skin. It works wonders in restoring moisture and promoting a healthy, radiant complexion.
- Shea Butter: Pamper your skin with the luxurious touch of shea butter. Renowned for its exceptional moisturizing properties, shea butter is a protective barrier, sealing in hydration and preventing dryness. It leaves your skin feeling silky smooth and supple, even after a day under the sun's rays.
- Raw CA Beeswax: Nature's gift to skin care, raw beeswax lends its gentle touch to our balm. With its natural emollient properties, beeswax forms a protective layer on your skin, locking in moisture and shielding it from environmental stressors. It aids in restoring and maintaining the skin's natural moisture balance.
- Calendula Flower Oil: Extracted from vibrant calendula flowers, this oil has been treasured for its soothing and healing properties for centuries. Calendula flower oil calms and nurtures sun-stressed skin, reducing redness and irritation. It helps your skin recover its natural radiance, promoting a healthy complexion.
- Eucalyptus Oil: Indulge your senses with the refreshing essence of eucalyptus oil. Our Body Balm offers a cooling sensation, soothing and revitalizing sun-exposed skin. Eucalyptus oil also possesses purifying properties, leaving your skin feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
- Extra Virgin Olive Oil: Rich in antioxidants and healthy fats, extra virgin olive oil nourishes and protects your skin. It helps combat the effects of sun damage and promotes a youthful appearance. Its hydrating properties restore moisture, leaving your skin soft, smooth, and glowing.
- Vitamin E (from sunflower seeds): Our balm is enriched with the natural goodness of vitamin E derived from sunflower seeds. This potent antioxidant shields your skin from harmful free radicals generated by sun exposure, helping to prevent premature aging. Vitamin E supports your skin's resilience and vitality.
Onda Oil is the Secret Sauce to Soothing Skin
Our Body Balm is packed with skin-nourishing ingredients like organic shea butter, calendula flower oil, raw California beeswax, and extra virgin olive oil– but the anti-inflammatory super ingredient that makes our Body Balm so special is Onda Oil.
Onda Oil is our whole hemp flower infusion, made with hemp grown on organic, regenerative, and biodynamic farms. Rich in essential fatty acids and antioxidants, Onda Oil works wonders in restoring moisture and promoting a healthy, radiant complexion. Here’s a quick deep dive on why it’s so wonderful for skin.
CBD-Rich Onda Oil as an After-Sun Skin Remedy
Full spectrum, whole flower CBD oil like that found in Onda Oil is believed to be beneficial for skin health, especially for skin exposed to sunshine, due to its unique combination of active compounds and potential anti-inflammatory properties. Here are some reasons why it's considered beneficial:
Rich in Antioxidants: Full-spectrum CBD oil contains a variety of plant compounds, including cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids. These compounds are potent antioxidants that can help protect the skin from oxidative stress caused by free radicals generated by UV radiation from the sun.
Anti-Inflammatory Effects: CBD (cannabidiol) has demonstrated anti-inflammatory properties, which can be particularly helpful for skin exposed to sunlight. Sun exposure can lead to inflammation and redness in the skin, and CBD may help to reduce these effects, potentially soothing and calming the skin.
Skin Hydration: CBD oil has been reported to help with skin hydration and moisture retention. Properly hydrated skin is more resilient and less prone to damage from external factors like UV rays.
Balancing Sebum Production: CBD may help regulate sebum production in the skin, which is beneficial for both dry and oily skin types. By promoting a more balanced sebum production, it can help prevent issues like acne and maintain a healthy skin barrier.
Supporting the Endocannabinoid System: The human body has an endocannabinoid system (ECS), which plays a role in maintaining overall homeostasis, including the health of the skin. CBD interacts with the ECS receptors in the skin, potentially supporting its normal functioning.
Potential Anti-Aging Effects: Some research suggests that CBD may have anti-aging effects on the skin. Its antioxidant properties and ability to reduce inflammation may help combat signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and skin sagging, which can be exacerbated by sun exposure.
It's important to note that while many people report positive effects from using full-spectrum CBD oil for their skin, research in this area is still limited, and individual responses may vary. Before using any new skincare product, it's advisable to do a patch test and consult with a dermatologist, especially if you have pre-existing skin conditions or concerns.
