I am a very passionate person and one thing I am extremely passionate about is animal rights. Now, I am in no way a perfect human, I only began transitioning into this lifestyle 6 months ago and still have quite a ways to go. I compiled this list out of my own research and decided to share it, I can only hope it will be useful to someone ◕‿◕ I will update it as frequently as possible, but please feel free to edit, ask questions, or educate me and others. Thank you!!!

I decided to share this wonderful product with you. It’s the Raw Gaia “Hemp Heaven Moisturiser”.
Heavenly scented and heavenly rich, transforms troubled skin into heavenly healthy, radiant skin.
This moisturiser is expertly formulated with an array of nutrition-laden botanical extracts, but the cold-pressed Hemp oil steals the spotlight.
Organic hemp is Mother Nature’s gift to people with less than perfect skin. Carefully captured from the flowers and seeds of the Hemp plant, the organic Hemp oils brim with omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids in the exact 3:1 ratio that is uniquely suited to heal and nourish your skin. It also includes small amounts of gamma linoleic acid which improves the consistency of the natural oils produced by the skin. GLA helps pores stay unclogged and less visible.
The perfectly combined EFAs and GLA in the organic Hemp oils act quickly to reduce inflammation and redness, alleviating skin problems like acne, eczema and soothing allergic reactions.
Heavenly Hemp Moisturiser also includes the following carefully chosen ingredients:
Organic Cacao butter is a substantial moisturiser that smells delightfully of chocolate. Cacao butter has been used for centuries to regenerate skin cells and restore elasticity to the skin.
Organic Apricot Kernel oilis high in Vitamins A, B and E which are energy-boosters for tired and mature skin. Very mild and fine, Apricot kernel oil is frequently used in products that protect babies’ delicate skin.
Organic Wheatgerm oilis a thick, nutritional powerhouse full of Vitamins A through E. Small amounts of this rich oil will drench with moisture dry complexions and rough patches of skin.
Organic Lemon essential oilis a soft exfoliator. The natural acids in lemon mildly abrade away dead skin cells, leaving behind clean, fresh and bright skin.
Organic Sweet orange essential oilis harvested from the sweetly scented aromatic molecules in raw organic orange peels. These aromatic molecules stimulate the skin in to formcollagen, which repairs damaged tissue and plumps out fine lines.
