Gaea Whole Plant Beauty & Wellness – CBD has become increasingly popular in the beauty industry as more people have become aware of the cannabinoid’s potential beauty benefits as an edible and topical ingredient.
It is good for the skin because of the anti-inflammatory properties of CBD for reducing potential triggers of eczema, dermatitis, and psoriasis. CBD oil can also help soothe the skin and reduce the appearance of irritation, as well as replenish and improve the appearance of the skin.
Hemp is also considered a highly sustainable plant to cultivate. It not only remediates soil and supports insect life but dwindling bee populations too.
Gaea (pronounced Guy – ya) are a planet-conscious brand, that follows sustainable and ethical values. Woman-owned and founded by Charlotte Candillier, they passionately believe in the power of CBD oil to support daily life and to help our bodies and minds find a place free of stress where we can thrive and heal.
They custom formulate their products in small batches using whole plant CBD and ethically sourced plant oils using only broad-spectrum oils in our products. A far superior product than the cheaper isolate alternative.
Why Broad Spectrum?
This is the most expensive oil to purchase given the complex extraction process required to remove all the THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) whilst preserving the array of terpenes, flavonoids, and CBD within the plant. Broad Spectrum oil contains a vast number of compounds which work together to heighten the positive and therapeutic benefits of CBD oil.
This effect is referred to as the ‘entourage effect’; the belief that taking multiple cannabinoids in concert multiplies the effect of taking only a single molecule (as is the case with CBD isolate).
CBD isolate limits the scope of what the hemp plant can offer being a highly processed single-molecule CBD. For severe needs and prolonged use, isolate simply cannot produce a highly effective therapeutic result as can be seen with full and broad-spectrum oil.
Women Talking tries a couple of products in the range:
Gaea Glow Facial Oil
Gaea Glow is a deeply hydrating lightweight oil with Hemp Phyto-Cannabinoids as well as a blend of super-seed oils to replenish, improve, nourish, calm, and revitalise the texture of the skin that has been damaged by pollutants & ageing.
It contains cold-pressed Argan, Evening Primrose, Pomegranate, Watermelon, Apricot and Rosehip oil delivering Omega 3,6,5,7 and 9 plus essential skin vitamins to tackle free radicals which aid skin regeneration and collagen production.
100% pure plant extracts for all skin types.
Contains 500mg of Broad-Spectrum CBD oil
Their clean formulations are batch-crafted without any harsh chemicals that can be found in many over-the-counter cosmetic products
Lab tested, certified and batch numbered for safety.
Simple to apply with a natural pump applicator, the oil glides onto the skin. It is easily absorbed, leaving no surface residue and incorporated into my daily beauty routine with ease.
Sunrise Day Drops
Gaea Sunrise Day Drops are infused with zingy natural orange extract, making them a pleasure to the palate. This tincture will help bring balance and calm, support your well-being, and help the healing of your body and mind. They are to be taken in the morning or during the day. Personally, I have mine sitting on my desk for accessibility.
This broad-spectrum tincture contains a minimum of 500mg of CBD in 30ml of the finished product with MCT (coconut) carrier oil. It contains a high-quality CBD content as well as minor cannabinoids of CBC and CBDV to help create the ‘Entourage Effect ‘(as explained in the Science Paragraph above)
I found the Gaea range was well packaged and to preserve the CBD content in the products, which is highly sensitive to degradation from UV rays, all their oils are bottled in fun-coloured bottles to protect the content.
