Kloris CBD Patches – 24-hour release (£48 for 30 patches) are discrete, precise, effective, and fully biodegradable. These easy to use, waterproof, transdermal, CBD patches deliver their active ingredients steadily into your body over 24 hours, providing all-day (and night) assistance to relieve pain and provide calmness from a single patch. Formulated with a precise dose of 16mg of pure CBD per patch, along with added nutrients including turmeric and resveratrol, specially selected to help aid inflammation and joint health. These patches can also be used in conjunction with Kloris’ balm to target specific muscle pain.

The special adhesive in the patches allows the CBD to penetrate through the skin and get directly into your body, bypassing the liver and digestive system for maximum effectiveness (bioavailability).  Each 30-patch pouch provides a month’s worth of patches in a handy set, containing a total of 480mg of CBD. Like all of Kloris’ products, these patches are THC free.

With the majority of patches on the market containing single use plastic KLORIS have been working for some time on a way to deliver patches with zero plastic waste. From the outer packaging to the patches themselves, everything is completely biodegradable, without compromising on efficacy.  Available now from kloris.

So why not join the thousands of superheroes out there making planet positive choices, whilst nourishing their skin at the same time with Weleda Skin Food.  Available from weleda and natural health and beauty retailers nationwide.
