Each can contains 20mg of carotenoids which can be used by your body to increase collagen levels, skin elasticity, improve hydration and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. As well as protect against eye digital burnout, UV rays, and studies have also shown the fruit can help fight cancer cells (skin and breast.)

AUR Body: CBD line for our feature
Launched last week, AUR Body, is a design-driven, vertically integrated wellness brand that fundamentally redefines the way customers can interact with and understand cannabis.
Alternative medicine isn’t so alternative anymore. More and more people are starting to wake up to the fact that the blind prescription of opioids is kind of not all that cool, and AUR Body is using new methods of caring for the body in natural, non-destructive ways. AUR Body’s CBD Hemp Oil is all organic. It can be used to soothe aches, calm nerves, and ease pains in a safe, non-prescription, non-addictive way. Because it matters what we put into our body.
AUR Body is launching with the Milks set which is the entry level to CBD. The AUR Body Milks set includes one Vanilla Almond Milk Tincture and one Mint Chocolate Milk Tincture. The products range from $25 to $63, and the set can be purchased for $85. In addition, AUR Body is launching CBD Watermellow Gummies as well as Rosemary’s Achey CBD Skin Oil. More products will be added to the line in the coming months.
