I love hemp seed oil, but one afternoon while a friend was over and I accidentally spilled something I was testing, I realized that in regular day to day life it's not always convenient to have a liquid serum or cleanser. I desired to create a solid version of hemp seed oil that remains true to hemp seed oils natural almost dry touch. This non-greasy balm is supremely simple and beyond nourishment for your skin.
The addition of a light vegan wax makes this travel-friendly and just a bit richer than Hemp Seed Oil alone. Use as an oil cleanser and makeup remover, moisturizer, lip balm, facial balm, hand cream, and so much more! This is heated very very very minimally. to preserve as much of the natural beneficial fatty acids as possible.
Organic Frankincense has been renowned for centuries for its regenerative and soothing properties.
Organic Hemp Seed Oil – packed with Omega Fatty Acids that encourage healthy barrier function, Antioxidants, Anti-Inflammatory, and rich in Linoleic Acid that encourages balanced sebum production. Sustainable, Cruelty Free, Vegan, and good for you and the planet; Hemp really does have it all!
Candelilla Wax – vegan wax that encourages healthy barrier function and makes this balm solid. This is essentially wild-harvested and is unavailable as Organic at present. I am always looking!

WHO THIS FORMULA WAS CREATED FOR
For several years, I have been perfecting different cleansing oil blends for sensitive skin. There are so many beautiful herbs and essential oils, but not all of them are ideal for everyone. For example; Neem oil is being researched as a male contraceptive, so I tend to avoid it in my skincare. Lavender Essential oil is being looked at as possible Endocrine disruptor, with the possibility of contributing to hormone-related issues, so I tend to avoid it for acne and hormonal acne. Just because you see a lot of something in the natural skincare world, does not mean that it is going to be beneficial, so I always err on the side of caution.
I created this balm to be a solid version of Hemp Seed Oil. I wanted it to be all the things I love about Organic Hemp Seed Oil, but in a format that wouldn’t leak when I traveled. Because I don’t use any products I didn’t make myself, I also found I was in need a more travel-friendly moisturizer than the hemp seed oil alone. This was created for anyone with easily congested pores, allergies to traditional lotions and essential oils, and anyone who has ever spilled their whole bottle of oil all over a white carpet in the bathroom :-?
This can be used as a cleansing oil, solid facial oil, lip balm, hair serum, makeup remover, and in any way you would use Organic Hemp Seed Oil.
Remove a small amount and apply to damp or dry skin as a light moisturizer.
Remove a blueberry-size amount, warm between palms, massage into dry skin, and remove.
Skin care is very personal, and your skin will change with age, weather, and hormones ... so be open to changing your routine with your skin.
EASY OIL CLEANSING
1. Remove a blueberry-size amount, warm between palms
2. Massage into face, focusing on hollows of face and trouble areas.
3. Continue massaging 1-5 minutes with dry hands using gentle pressure.
4. Gently remove the oil with a dry microfiber or flannel. If you have damaged, acne-prone, or sensitive skin; do not steam or heat your pores and do not use the cloth hot and wet. The idea is to let the oil do the work. If you do want to use a damp cloth, be sure to use very minimal pressure.
*I have seen it said you can use cotton rounds to remove your oil. I am sure this is fine, but I can't get enough leverage with a little cotton pad and the Organic ones I use are so soft, I feel they tear and I spend more time fighting them.
5. Once the oil is removed, your skin should feel clean. Do not leave oil used to cleanse on your skin.
6. You can stop here. You can mist your skin with Hydrosol. You can do toner, serum, and moisturizer.
“Toner” is typically used after a foaming cleanser to acidify PH, since you aren’t altering the PH of skin, you can skip toner and go right to hydration step like Hydrosol.
DOUBLE CLEANSING (I use this method, especially when getting in the shower and for super sensitive broken skin.)
1. Massage a blueberry-size amount, warmed between palms, of onto dry face. Focus on areas like the crevice of your nose and chin that have texture. Massage for 3-5 minutes.
2. Use Bear's Beauty's foaming face wash or scrub of choice, pump 2-4 pumps into palm and massage right into cleansing oil on your face. Avoiding eye area. By not adding water, you allow the soap to emulsify (dissolve) the oil used for cleansing.
3. Rinse. Follow with Toner + Serum + Moisturizer as needed. If your skin still feels oily, you can repeat step 2 or just use toner to remove excess. Bear's Beauty Multi-Tasking Cleansing Oils can also be used as nourishing serum/moisturizers. Because they are so light, I say "serum/moisturizer."
PRODUCT SIZE INFO
1.8 fl oz (Save your Violet and Blue Glass!)
Microfiber Cloth (Cloth will be a random color.)
All Oil Cleansers now come with one Microfiber Cloth, I feel that of all the things I have tried over the last few years, microfiber cloths are the most effective + offer gentle exfoliation + leave your skin clean without the need for a second cleanse.
Ideal storage for all water-based serums, facial products with water, and even oil cleansers is in a cool and dark place, refrigeration is preferred.
While I do formulate products to be potent even when stored at room temperature, there is natural degradation that occurs at room temperature. I store all my products cold, and when I am not actively using a serum or cleanser, I pop it in the “Skincare Drawer.”
Sprays, serums, and creams with water do best kept at the very least out of direct sunlight, but the fridge will extend freshness. Masks also do better kept in the fridge. Balms, Butters, Deodorants, and Toothpaste all do fine at room temperature.
Bear’s Beauty is made with the finest Cold-Pressed Botanical Oils, Essential Oils, Hydrosols, Organic Fruits and Vegetables. I use minimal preservatives based in Probiotic and Fermented Kimchee to create safe products. That being said, this is food-grade skincare, and it will go bad. I recommend storage of your products in the fridge, in general. If you are taking a break from a product and you feel you won’t use it at least once a week, place it in the fridge. If you are using a cream or a hydrosol every day and you don’t like getting it from the fridge, it is totally fine to leave it in your bathroom, out of direct sunlight.
FRESH + HANDMADE MATTERS
With the natural beauty, hemp, and CBD industry growth; there are a lot of choices on the market. It can be hard to wade through the hype. So, I want to talk to you as a formulator about why I choose Organic and Cold-Pressed Oils for my skincare as well as my personal use and cooking.
LOTS of brands throw in a dash of hyper-processed hemp oil and call a product "hemp." We use copious amounts of Organic Cold-Pressed Hemp Seed Oil, between 10-100%, but never just a few drops as an afterthought.
Fresh Hemp Seed Oil is very green, bordering on emerald. It smells slightly nutty and grassy. Hemp seed oil that has gone rancid is yellow or brown and has a slightly fishy smell. I tell you this, because hemp products should either be very green and smell fresh, or slightly colored from other ingredients and fresh smelling. It should never smell bad. The unfortunate reality is, many brands hopped on the bandwagon of hemp and didn't understand the delicate oil.
Our Organic Hemp Seed Oil is sourced from Canada and stored cold. Products are made fresh, within weeks of ordering, and typically, made to order. This cold storage and fresh mixing ensures you get all the beneficial properties of the oil possible. Organic Hemp Seed Oil, alone, without any CBD or other oils added, is amazing for skin. When choosing any skincare, consider not only the ingredients, but the quality and the quantity.
Each and every ingredient is sourced and stored mindfully. Even down to our bottles. I know clear bottles look good on social media, but clear glass acts like a magnifying glass to the cold-pressed oils. Blue and Violet Glass bottles block out harmful UV rays and assure you get the most out of your skincare. But hey, anywhere possible, I use clear glass.
WHY MOST ITEMS ARE PACKAGED IN GLASS + CARDBOARD
The industry is set up for plastics. Most things, deodorant tubes specifically only come in plastic. While we wait for the industry to catch up and start using hemp plastic, we o offer some items (like three) in plastic. Everything else comes in glass or cardboard. We are constantly working to reduce waste, our carbon footprint, and reuse as much as possible. We choose to buy packaging new, but do recycle your used jars into candles when they come back to us.
Glass does not degrade or leach, and as much as I thought I would break ten million bottles; I think I am at maybe 20 all total in the last almost decade of making creations. The glass is stronger than you think. If anything, dropper tops cause a surprising number of mishaps.
Plastic is killing our planet. I figure, the least we can do is find a way to take care of our skin and the Earth. So, we use glass, cardboard, and recyclable plastic.
I am a purist. I believe in the fewest number of ingredients to work together synergistically for maximum effect. I not only source the finest botanical and mineral ingredients from around the world, but I store them cold and make them fresh just for you. I believe in transparency and innovation, constantly seeking to offer the best Mother Nature has to offer with empirical support. I love research and feel that the tangibility of university studies helps to shed some light on previously esoteric topics. I also encourage customers to do their own research, as I believe everyone has unique skin needs and interactions with ingredients. I formulate from the heart, drawing on years of herbal and cosmetic formulation knowledge, a little magic, and a desire to better the lives of those around me. I make skincare with soul from the heart and I am so thankful for the opportunity to share these creations with you.
WHY WE AREN'T LIKE OTHER BRANDS
I have several auto-immune disorders, acne-prone sensitive skin, migraines, PCOS, and lost someone I love to chemical-induced lymphoma. I do not use ingredients that are synthetic, possibly carcinogenic, hormone disruptors, or a host of other ingredients. We avoid comedogenic ingredients and do further acne-safe testing, so all our formulas are acne safe. I am honest to a fault before I am dishonest on a listing or label. What we put on our skin should be as pur as what we eat and I believe that to my core. Anything short of that, is contributing to the problem. We don't use ingredients that can build up in the body and if we do, we tell you.

Frequently Asked Questions
Custom and personalized orders
I am happy to do custom work and encourage you to contact me. If you have allergies or just love a particular scent, I am happy to oblige for a nominal fee.
Many items are composed of delicate floral waters and botanical oils. Keeping your items in the fridge and away from direct light will greatly extend the life of the product. Consider investing in a skincare fridge if you live in a hot climate. This is especially true for Hydrosols + Cremes + Cold Creams + Sprays + Butters (in the summer they may become liquid) + Cremes. I use Radish Root Ferment, a widely used natural preservative, but keeping your items cool + away from light will give you more time to use + love them.
Oil-based serums should be stored away from direct light and refrigerated if you will not use within 4 months.
I love expanding my business and offer many items for wholesale and distribution. Please contact me directly BearsBeauty@yahoo.com.
What are the best products for me?
All of my items are made for the most sensitive and acne-prone skin. Assume they will be ideal for you if this is your concern. I do not use coconut oil or comedogenic oils like cocoa, but always patch test just to be safe.
It takes 1-4 weeks to make your item, especially in peak ordering times.
Once your item is shipped, it arrives within 3-7 days in the US and varying time frames for international orders.
The entire world is struggling to adjust to the pandemic, please be patient. All items will be sent and any issues will be made right.
Only Priority mail services come with insurance. If an item is shipped First Class and is stolen or lost, you will be responsible for that loss. It is not my responsibility to pay for goods stolen from your porch. Please pay for Priority shipping if you are at all concerned about items being lost or stolen.
Delivery Issues USPS
If you have an item that shows it was delivered in/at mailbox and you do not have your item, please contact your local post office and neighbors. Many times the package has been mis-delivered to a neighbor or similar address and will find its way back to the post office within a day or so. I am happy to replace items for 50% off the original price + shipping in cases where an item is lost. You can also pay for upgraded shipping as Priority packages have insurance coverage and the replacement cost is covered by USPS if they lose your package.
I know it sucks to order something handmade and have it not show up, as it sucks to make something with your hands for someone and it be lost...hence meeting in the middle and covering half.
