Enjoy another multimedia experience with the Tortus Mountain Sages, as they explore and spread education about hemp through its many forms. Today, they show us that hemp oil’s valuable properties go beyond edible nourishment. With Agape Body Spray by HempConnex (now rebranded as Sunshine), you never have to suffer dry skin again. And the enticing scent will have you singing “Let the Sunshine In.” Watch, learn, and be well.
Hemp skin products can be broken down into two main categories: skincare products with extra benefits or pain-relief creams. The HempConnex Agape Body Spray (AKA Sunshine Agape Hemp Moisturizer) is a quality skincare product with the extra benefit of helping restore dry skin and relieving itchy patches like athlete’s foot or other sensitive or dry areas on the body. I don’t really use lotions because they’re greasy and clog pores, but this stuff is different. All the oils used in this formula are focused on absorbing into the skin and unclogging pores.After I rub this stuff on, my dry skin sucks it all up within five minutes, making it look shiny and healthy. The smell is unexpectedly pleasant, like peeling a fresh orange. The more you put on, the more you feel like you’re actually living inside a fresh orange. Thank you, Sunshine, for this added smell bonus – it’s really nice and stays around even after the skin has absorbed it. Sometimes with hemp body rubs, the nice smell goes away after an hour, and you get an earthy/leafy odor later rather than the fragrance. That is not true with this product.One older male said he put it on his athlete’s foot and it went away 90%, along with the crack in his feet. He mentioned he’s been trying other things, and was surprised that the Agape Body Spray worked better than most things he’s tried. Another athletic male mentioned some chafing and rashes on his thighs from working out. He took a shower and used Agape to help moisturize the area. It worked.Currently, I’m using it as a dry spot moisturizer and trying to get dry patches on my skin to return to normal. With daily doses of Agape, it’s working. On extremely dry spots that have been on my skin for awhile, I’m using one drop of any full-spectrum hemp oil tincture and dropping it on the extreme dry spot. That seems to speed up the healing.Unlike some other brands’ formulas, Sunshine uses essential oils that stay on the skin to help moisturize and heal the skin. This is combined with 500 mg of full-spectrum hemp oil (the latest formula at Sunshine has a 1000 mg version). The bottle comes in a 4-ounce size.Sunshine/HempConnex is a family-based company that consumes the products they create. One of the founders has Hashimoto’s, a thyroid condition on the rise in humans, and creates clean products to help with overall wellness of the body.Here are some quick healing facts about the other oils in Agape Body Spray:
