It’s no secret that our philosophy to clear and calm skin is to load our products with all of the natural and none of the nasties. That’s why we pair our hero Hemp Seed Oil with an abundance of carefully chosen natural ingredients that work perfectly together to nurture your skin like it deserves.
We talk about the benefits of Hemp Seed Oil a lot - of course we do, It’s the life behind our entire collection! But, today we’re going to celebrate some of the other heroes of Hey Bud, these incredible ingredients that feature in our mask, moisturiser, and face oil to feed your skin the essential vitamins and nutrients it needs.
We get it. If you’ve found us after searching high and low for an acne solution that actually works, you might be wondering why we’re celebrating an oil. We’re here to tell you that Jojoba Oil isn’t just any ordinary oil, it’s one that your acne-prone skin is going to love.
Firstly, Jojoba Oil isn’t technically an oil. It’s a liquid wax ester that’s rich in essential fatty acids. Where things get interesting is that wax esters are also a main component in the sebum in our skin which means Jojoba Oil can actually mimic our skin’s natural sebum and add essential moisture without any pore clogging in sight!
As this is as close to your skin’s natural oil as you can yet, Jojoba Oil is touted as an exceptional oil for acne sufferers as it can welcome the balance your skin has been looking for. Often those experiencing breakouts are lacking essential moisture in the skin which is where this incredible ingredient works its hardest.
Not only is it strengthening your barrier and soothing irritated skin, but Jojoba Oil is fuelling your skin with the much-needed moisture and therefore, the acne-causing oil flow begins to slow and rediscover its balance. Pretty impressive, right?

Kakadu Plum is literally the skincare wonder from down under.
An Australian native superfood, Kakadu Plum is the richest source of Vitamin C available on the planet.
With its incredible delivery of antioxidants, this native superfood works exceptionally hard to protect the skin against damaging free radicals, caused from sun damage, pollution, and environmental aggressors. Antioxidants are also a must-have when addressing the signs of ageing as they stimulate collagen growth to reveal stronger, plumper, and younger looking skin.
If sensitive skin is a concern for you, Kakadu Plum is the more soothing of the Vitamin C family as it contains Gallic Acid, a natural anti-inflammatory. This will support the reduction of redness, irritation, and inflammation.

Kaolin Clay puts the clay in our Hemp Clay Mask. It is one of the gentle members of the clay family which makes it ideal for those with sensitive or compromised skins.
Kaolin Clay has been used for centuries to absorb excess oil and acne-causing impurities from the pores. When it absorbs the excess oil, it does so in a way that doesn’t contribute to inflammation or redness. This is why it’s a go-to for acne sufferers who don’t want to exacerbate their condition.
In addition to its incredible detoxification benefits, Kaolin Clay offers a mild exfoliation that gentle removes dead and dry skin cells from the skin. This reveals a much smoother, softer, and brighter looking complexion.

You’ve likely used Aloe Vera at some stage in your life, particularly if you’ve had a nasty sunburn that’s needed relief.
What you might not know is that the benefits of Aloe Vera extend well beyond sunburns. This plant is known for an abundance of healing properties including locking in moisture and seriously soothing inflammation.
Aloe Vera contains vitamins, antioxidants, minerals, and amino acids that are effective at strengthening and protecting the skin – two essentials that every complexion needs. Whilst it provides much-needed moisture and soothing sensations to the skin, Aloe Vera also has antimicrobial properties which protect against the formation of acne-causing bacteria.
