Alchemy Facial Serum – CBD Line
$50.00 – $80.00
Alchemy is the latest in our facial oil lineup and is by far our lightest blend, making it especially easy to incorporate into any skincare regimen for added nutrition and protection. Among its outstanding attributes are properties that effectively quell inflammation, filter UV rays, control sebum production, even skin tone and prevent the formation of free radicals. This incredible oil blend can be beneficial for virtually every skin type whether it is applied as a daily foundational layer before applying your moisturizer in the morning, or used at bedtime to ramp up the natural restorative process our skin undergoes when we sleep.
Boasting an exquisite essential oil blend of German Chamomile, copaiba, calendula, Helichrysum Italcum and carrot seed oil, Alchemy provides a multitude of antioxidant, antifungal, antibacterial and skin regenerative properties that complement the nutrient rich and deeply penetrating base oil blend of roseship seed, cranberry seed, sea buckthorn and grape seed oil with an olive derived squalene.
The newest of plant extracted superstars that we’ve also incorporated into this serum is the much talked about CBD! Alchemy incorporates CBD, abbreviated for cannabidiol, an organically grown and CO2 extraction from hemp plants, a member of the Cannabis family that is cultivated most often for textiles, paper, building materials, plastics and food sources such as hemp seed oil. By law these extractions must come from plants containing no more than 0.3% THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) which is the psychoactive component in marijuana. And for a quick demystification, hemp plants are entirely different than marijuana plants in that they contain such miniscule amounts of THC that they cannot be used for the purposes of intoxication.
While the earliest studies are continuing on CBD and the many other useful cannabinoids contained within the plant, there is already a lot of research pointing towards the system within the human body that receives and utilizes these highly beneficial molecules. This system is referred to as the endocannabinoid system and there are literally millions of receptor sites throughout the body and within the skin, making the skin a wonderful way to bring the actions of CBD directly to your complexion.
Alchemy can work exclusively as a first base layer after cleansing on virtually every skin type for its restorative and protective qualities. However, it may not be sufficient as a stand-alone moisturizer for those with normal to dry skin types. Those with excessively oily skin may find this blend to work sufficiently as a sole moisturizing layer, though the driest of the winter months may still call for a dash of additional moisturizing. Regardless of skin type, this synergistic facial oil brings a gorgeous presentation of gifts that only Mother Nature can offer.

What is CBD? CBD called Cannabidiol is non-psychotropic and is the most common phytocannabinoid found in hemp. CBD is a powerful antioxidant and there is now strong evidence that CBD treats chronic pain and has many therapeutic uses.
Where do you source your CBD? We use hemp that is organically grown in the United States. The CBD is CO2 extracted into the crude oil form. Further extractions are done to isolate the CBD to get the CBD isolate. Our supplier does pesticide and heavy metal testing of the hemp and again once processed into the oil. You can feel safe that our CBD isolate is free of heavy metals and pesticides.
What is the Endocannabinoid System? The Endocannabinoid System is a biological system that governs the nervous system and immune system. The Endocannabinoid system has cannabinoid receptors all over the skin, inside the body and in the brain. CBD and other phytocannabinoids feed this system. CBD provides many therapeutic benefits to the body by interacting with the Endocannabinoid System.
What is CBD Isolate? CBD isolate is a pure, crystalline powder that contains pure CBD. CBD isolate is derived from CO2 extracted hemp. Further extractions are done to isolate the CBD and all other phytocannabinoids are removed. CBD isolate does not contain THC and does not have a smell. We use the CBD isolate in our product because it does not contain THC, does not have a hemp smell and CBD has been studied for many years showing many therapeutic benefits.
Is CBD Isolate Safe? Patent 6,630,507 for CBD otherwise known as cannabidiol is owned by the United States Government. The patent itself states “[n]o signs of toxicity or serious side effects have been observed following chronic administration of cannabidiol to healthy volunteers (Cunha et al., Pharmacology 21:175-185, 1980), even in large acute doses of 700 mg/day (Consroe et al., Pharmacol. Biochem. Behav. 40:701-708, 1991).” This doesn’t mean you will not experience an adverse reaction to CBD. As always consult your phyisican before use or if you experience any adverse side effects.
What is a COA or Lab Report? COA stands for Certificate of Analysis and is used by testing labs to report what type of compounds are present in the test. A COA is important to know how much of each cannabinoid is in the product. In our product gallery you will see the COA testing for the CBD Isolate we are currently using. This shows 0% THC. We update this image with each new batch test of CBD Isolate.
What is Full/Broad Spectrum CBD Distillate? The Full/Broad Spectrum distillate is the CO2 extracted or ethanol extracted hemp containing not only CBD, but also THC, CBG, CBN, CBC and all the other cannabinoids and terpenes. This distillate smells very strongly of hemp and will contain 0.3% THC. If it contains more than 0.3% THC the product is not considered to be hemp and is illegal.
Why do you not use the Full/Broad Spectrum CBD Distillate? The smell of hemp is so strong, to cover it you need a stronger perfume. If that will even cover it. Our line of products are chemical free and do not contain perfumes or fragrances and most people do not want to walk around smelling like hemp and neither do we. You may have heard about the entourage effect and that full spectrum hemp works better than CBD isolate. For some things this may be true, but for our skin care there are some terpenes and canabinoids that are still unknown and may not be good for the skin. However CBD has been extensively studied and provides many therapeutic benefits and CBD isolate is pure CBD with no hemp smell. With CBD isolate we get all the therapeutic benefits of CBD without the smell and unwanted cannibinoids and terpenes. A final reason is we do not want THC in our product at this time. THC is still a highly controlled substance and considered illegal in most states. With full/broad spectrum CBD you get 0.3% THC and if the product was not cultivated properly or tested properly and there is more than 0.3% THC, then it is illegal. These are the reasons why we choose to use a CBD isolate for our products.
Will I get high or fail a drug test? CBD is non-psychotropic and will not get you high or show up on a drug test. The CBD isolate we use is guaranteed to have 0% THC. Topical use of CBD gets absorbed by the Endocannabinoid System receptors that are found throughout the skin and does not penetrate the dermal layer to enter the blood stream. You will not get high or fail a drug test because there is 0% THC.
