CANNABELLA was founded in 2017 by Matthew Stiegler, when his mother was diagnosed with cancer.
To support his mum and give her the best care, he devised a complete health and diet plan, to assist with her healing and help her through her treatment. Keeping everything as natural as possible.
However, the effects of the chemotherapy dried out and irritated her skin. Nothing was helping, so he decided to melt down the skin care products she was using at the time, on the stove and added hemp and botanical extracts.
He began to research all the other ingredients in her skincare and was shocked to learn about the chemical formulations and their cancer- causing side-effects. This was the last thing he looked into when she was first diagnosed. He wanted everything she had to be natural, so he started making her my own skincare, from scratch. Using his homemade recipes, she saw great success, and her skin healed and improved dramatically.
Matthew was so impressed with her results, it inspired him to produce more. With this, he needed a space to work and turned his spare bedroom into a lab.
Experimenting with different types of botanical extracts, he mixed them with hemp oils. To further refine his ingredients and verify their origin, Matthew started to grow plants and learn all about the healing properties.
Family and friends started to notice how good her skin looked. He had also started using the skincare himself, and people would often ask him what he used. When they found out he made it, people began asking to make it for them. Then people with skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis and acne were also having amazing results.
Early 2018, Matthew started his company, CANNABELLA. Only using 100% botanical ingredients with zero preservatives, as their whole line is oil based. Naturally, water free so it’s undiluted for superior hydration. Every ingredient is chosen for their rich nutrients and healing properties.
CANNABELLA’s key ingredient is unﬁltered HEMP oil for it’s high chlorophyll content, compared to regular processed hemp oil. High quality unfiltered HEMP oil is higher in Omega-3, 6 and 9, its non- comedogenic, it encourages skin to repair and heal naturally.
