Simple CBD Cleansing Balm Recipe

CBD Refreshing Cleansing Balm

The oil cleansing method is becoming increasingly popular these days. We were always taught as children to wash our face with harsh soap cleansers. I’m pretty sure we were all guilty of this.

These face cleansers would scrape down the natural oils on your face, so you would be “shine free.” But this would only last so long, until your skin would then be overproducing oil in your face to compensate the cleanser you put on earlier. It’s a vicious cycle. In this CBD cleansing balm recipe, I’ll show you how to make a cleansing balm that actually cleans your face and leaves it feeling nourished. The best way to add CBD to this cleansing balm recipe is to use our Simply Add CBD™ Skincare Oil.

What’s in This CBD Cleansing Balm?

Candelilla Wax – You may use beeswax in replace of candelilla wax if you have it. This helps the balm to stay together.

Shea Butter – Shea butter clocks in at 0 on the comedogenic scale, which means it will never clog your pores. It only helps cleansing, which is why we included this butter in this recipe.

Coconut Oil – Now, coconut oil is the hottest oil to talk about. Some people swear by it while for some, it doesn’t help one bit. If you are a coconut oil fanatic, keep it in this recipe. If not, substitute it for argan oil!

Sweet Almond Oil – We used sweet almond oil in this recipe since it is mostly non-comedogenic and is great for individuals with dry skin, oily skin, and sensitive skin.

CBD Oil with Hempseed Oil – Hempseed oil is also non-comedogenic and that’s why we picked it for our skincare carrier oil.

Simply Add CBD™ Skincare Oil

We highly recommend using our Simply Add CBD™ Skincare Oil for this recipe.

*Using any other CBD oil besides Simply Add CBD™ Skincare Oil may drastically change the recipe and potency of your CBD cleansing balm.

Simply Add CBD™ Skincare oil is specifically designed for crafting skincare products.

We source fresh hemp flower from local Wisconsin farmers and manufacture this product in-house. Our CBD Skincare oil contains CBD concentrate made with solventless extraction and no added preservatives!

Again, there are no solvents used in the hemp extraction process like the majority of other retailer’s products out there.

All you get is the straight CBD concentrate from our in-house processed hemp flower infused into hemp seed oil. Some would call this organic processing.

Also, it is half the cost of 95% of all other CBD oils on the market, since you are buying right from us – the manufacturer!
