Holistic Skin Care

We believe that skin care is essential when living in the mountains. This environment constantly exposes us to to dry and cold air which prematurely ages the skin. Our facial treatments are intended to replenish the skin with moisture, essential fatty acids, and healing antioxidants.

With our Holistic Skin Care services we are developing new herbal products, featuring hemp extract as an ingredient to potentiate the formulas. This is a full spectrum hemp extract, so if you are or will be in a position to be drug tested, please be aware that there is a trace amount of THC present. The extract used comes from agricultural hemp that is legally grown in Colorado under the Colorado Department of Agriculture, and is not from marijuana. There is emerging research on the effects of cannabinoids from hemp extract and its regulation of sebum production and skin cell growth, making it a valuable addition to skin care. Its use on the skin, where endocannabinoid receptors are naturally present, can assist in both dry and oily skin conditions, acneic skin, and mature, damaged skin, making it a powerful anti-aging and balancing plant ally.
