CBD Interview of the Decade:
They say cleanliness starts at home - how does Inesscents Salvation produce its hemp extract oil, where does it come from?
Our hemp is locally sourced from our partner farms in Southern Oregon, using certified organic seeds (by Oregon Tilth) as well as being farmed organically (Farm Organic Certification in process). The country here is beautiful, clean and pristine. We also use a CO2 Extraction process to create a pure, non-toxic high-quality oil. This method is environmentally friendly and eliminates the need for harsh chemicals used in other extraction processes.
Inesscents Salvation’s CBD Skin Salve (Hot Freeze) is one of your most popular products. What do you think that makes it different than other CBD salves or in the market?
There are quite a few notable qualities that differentiate Inesscents in the marketplace. Our ingredients and formulations truly make all of the difference. It’s not just CBD, a base oil, some beeswax and scent. We utilize over 20 years of extensive knowledge of organic botanicals and combine it with the emerging science of hemp derived cannibinoids to deliver the highest quality topical CBD products available. We use cold pressed oils, fresh locally grown organic herbs, organic essential oils and locally sourced CBD extract grown from organic seed. This is imperative to maintaining the therapeutic integrity and efficacy of each botanical. These details translate to how our products actually work with the skin. Plus, we hand-blend and pour everything in small batches. Even our 8 Herb botanical infusion (which we use as a base oil) includes carefully selected therapeutic herbs that support the body at the deepest level. (arnica, calendula, lavender, yarrow, nettle, chickweed & chamomile). All of this and our costs are comparable or less than our competitors – even with our stellar ingredients!
It’s pretty obvious that your product line focuses on attaining a healthy, glowing skin. Are you planning on or currently working on expanding your product line this year? What can we expect from these?
Absolutely. We are always aspiring to stay fresh, innovative, creative and thriving! What’s next? We just launched three CBD Botanically Infused Massage Oils and we have a Hot Freeze Recovery Cream in the works for all of our Hot Freeze fans. We are already formulating well into the future - our artisan juices are always flowing.
How did Inesscents Salvation start? What was the most contributing factor?
Our Salvation line was really a natural progression for us. Being experts in healthy skin, we’ve come to have our favorite powerhouse botanicals. CBD is one of those revolutionary plants that has incredible benefits for the skin, is gentle and has a perfect synergy with so many other herbs and oils. We were really excited when we were able to finally incorporate it into our blends.
Is there a particular reason for CBD to be included in everyone’s skin-care products?
Ummm – yes! We have developed quite a few products that extend beyond relief and recovery (which by the way, should be on hand in everyone's bathroom cabinet). For those who have not tried our CBD infused facial care line, just go out on a limb and see what all of the hype is about. Just try it and you may discover your forever facial moisturizer. Not only are these products aromatically light and bright, you can see and feel the immediate difference in your facial skin. It was a game changer for so many people (myself included). Plus our other CBD products are incredible. The bath salts fly off shelves as fast as we hand make them. Truly the most relaxing, next-level aromatic journey. We know a lot of folks who literally converted from shower people to bath people!
