Hemp Essential Oil Vs CBD Oil

There's been quite a lot of media activity lately discussing the fact that the Food Standards Agency is bringing in tighter regulation regarding oral CBD products which are high in CBD - one of the active compounds in the plant.

Sustainable Seaweed Extracts - but they're not Scottish!

Based on the Idyllic Pristine West Coast of Scotland, you might expect us to use local seaweed extracts in our products. However there are few reasons why at Zing Organics we use non indigenous seaweed extracts in our Eco Marine Algae Facial Cleansing Masque.
