Called "the holy grail of face serums"; packed with potent natural phytonutrients

Renewing Serum is deeply moisturizing yet fast-absorbing, doesn't leave a greasy feel, and has a light, uplifting scent and silky texture. Every plant active is carefully chosen for its skin benefits: antioxidant superheroes vitamins A, C, and E to fight skin-damaging free radicals, plant-derived squalene and blue tansy oil for their soothing, anti-inflammatory qualities, and the star ingredient, full-spectrum cannabis.

Cannabis does what no other skincare ingredient can do

Your endocannabinoid system (ECS) is the secret to understanding how one face serum can work so beautifully for both dry and oily skin. Your skin is your largest organ, and every layer is covered in endocannabinoid receptors. Cannabinoids in cannabis mimic endocannabinoids to signal to your ECS receptors to create balance. So whether your skin is producing too much or too little sebum, or is red, dry or itchy with inflammation and acne, cannabis will help bring it into balance. Cannabinoids are also extra powerful antioxidants, perfect for neutralizing free radicals — the main culprit of premature aging of your skin and body.

How to use

After cleansing and toning, warm up 1 to 2 pumps of serum in your palms by rubbing them together (amount will vary depending on your skin). Warming up the oil is important, as it makes it absorb into the skin quicker and more thoroughly. Gently press into face, neck and chest.


  • For oilier skin, apply to skin before moisturizer (or skip moisturizer).
  • For drier skin, apply to skin after moisturizer (such as hyaluronic acid) to seal it in.
  • Follow with other products, sunscreen, makeup, etc.

Certificate of Analysis (COA) test results

All of our products are made of nourishing, real plants. They are all free of potentially harmful ingredients too often found in cosmetics — including PEGs, PFAS (‘forever chemicals’), parabens, phthalates, sulfates, colorants, added fragrance, etc.

In addition, an independent lab tests every small batch of our products for potency and purity. The results prove that our products are free of over 100 contaminants, from pesticides and microbial impurities, to mycotoxins and heavy metals (lead, mercury, arsenic, cadmium), to residual solvents and processing chemicals. Every product, every batch. We know of no other cosmetics company that goes to these lengths to assure customers of the purity and safety of their products.

Bonus: We add no fragrance to our products — the delicate scent stems from the natural botanicals inside.


Vegan and cruelty-free

Despite the cute bee in our name and logo, which sometimes makes people think we use honey in our products, we avoid all animal-derived ingredients. And we never, ever test on animals.

All of our products are Leaping Bunny certified and PETA certified vegan and cruelty-free.

Sustainable and conscientious

We are on track to becoming a B Corp in 2023 and close to 100% plastic-free. We are a proud member of 1% for the Planet and financially committed to environmental causes, social justice causes, and creating a healthy planet.

Our products are non-psychoactive, as the THC molecules will not go into your bloodstream through the skin. We include THC in our full-spectrum cannabis products for its healing effects on the skin – no high required.

Blue Tansy Oil for skincare flower illustration

Tanacetum annuum

Blue Tansy

Blue Tansy, also known as Moroccan Blue Chamomile, is a yellow-flowered Mediterranean plant. Highly valued for its skin cooling and soothing benefits, it’s an excellent choice for irritated, extra dry or blemished skin. This steam-distilled oil has a heavenly scent that is sweet and herbaceous, and its characteristic deep indigo color comes from a chemical compound called chamazulene.

olive derived organic squalene plant based squalene



Green Bee Botanicals uses only plant-derived squalane. (We never use any animal derived ingredients–not even honey!) Squalene is a very light, colorless oil that is naturally occurring in human sebum. This oil has antioxidant properties and is highly moisturizing  because it absorbs very readily, leaving skin soft and supple.


Stable form of oil derived vitamin C


Vitamin C

We use tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate, an oil-based ester of vitamin C, because we’ve found it to be more effective–more stable, than the water-soluble version (ascorbic acid). There is abundant data showing the effectiveness of vitamin C for boosting collagen production, protecting the skin from oxidative stress, and lightening dark spots for brighter, plumper skin.

Argan oil forganic

argania spinosa

Argan Oil

Argan oil is derived from the kernels of the fruit of the argan tree found in Morocco. This nourishing and vitamin E-rich ‘dry’ oil is valuable for its ability to deeply moisturize without leaving a greasy residue. It has powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and is rich in fatty acids, immediately improving the appearance and texture of skin.


Ocimum basilicum


Basil has excellent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, great for protecting and soothing irritated skin. The particular species of basil we use (Ocimum basilicum) is very high in the terpene linalool, which is known for its ability to calm stressed skin and minds. Basil lends its cool, sweet, mild anise-like notes to our Renewing Serum’s heavenly natural scent. 



Award-winning, small-batch, luxurious skincare with nature’s most healing plants: cannabis and other potent plant actives.




THC, or delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, is the main potentially psychoactive compound in cannabis. Non-intoxicating when applied topically, THC is fantastic for skin because of its proven antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and pain relieving benefits. THC also contributes to a stronger entourage effect, meaning the more of the cannabis plant is in a product, the more effective it will be.




CBD, or cannabidiol, is a cannabinoid found in the flowers of the Cannabis sativa plant. When high-quality CBD extract is applied to skin, it signals to the endocannabinoid system receptors in every layer of our skin to promote balance and optimal functioning. CBD helps moderate sebum (oil) production and has strong anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

Blend of Exotic Oils


Skin-healing oils

We carefully select our organic base oils with excellent anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and healing benefits that also absorb easily, leaving the skin smooth and plump, never greasy. nourishing mix of organic oils: Simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) oil, Prunus armeniaca (apricot) kernel oil, Olea europea (squalane) oil, Corylus avellana (hazelnut) oil, and Argania spinosa (argan) oil .

  1. Sheila P.

    I have been using the renewing serum for about 5 years to relieve trigeminal nerve pain caused by a really severe case of shingles. Not only does the serum relieve the pain, but it seems to make my (almost 85 year old) face look smoother and less ‘wrinkly’. I’m about to try using the massage oil to relieve arthritis pain (so I can continue skiing and bicycling !!)

  2. Laura Fogelman

    Pores? What pores?! This serum is not only deliciously silky, deeply hydrating and smells amazing, but it’s done wonders for my skin tone and texture. I’m smoother, my pigmentation is better, it keeps breakouts in check and I have a flawless canvas for makeup. LOVE LOVE LOVE this product so much. The only negative? My husband started getting his paws on it, so I am now going through it twice as fast. 🙂

  3. Dani Peinado

    I have been loyal to the same products for these past 5 years and I decided to give a try to the face serum and to the eye cream from Green Bee Botanicals. Almost two months later and I can tell that I have never seen such amazing results so fast. The glow is evident and my skin feels like velvet. Time for a change and now my loyalty has a new address: Green Bee Botanicals! ❤️

  4. Jenniffer B

    First things first, the ladies of Green Bee need a round of applause for this incredible & effective ingredient list! The texture and scent from the essential oils is my favorite. This serum is one of many GB products in my daily arsenal, perfectly moisturizing, soothing, balancing and it’s the secret to my glow from within. This serum helps soothe my psoriasis outbreaks and sensitive skin and make sure that my skin is replenished when I’m done wearing makeup for the day. I’m hooked, and forever a fan of GB!

  5. Melissa

    The ingredients in this serum are beyond amazing. I’ve used this so many ways. My favorites are to use it after the Quench Moisturizer. I take a pump or 2 warm it up in my palms and tap it into my face for a no makeup glowing skin. Then I use the extra oil and rub it threw the strands of my hair for shine and frizz control.

  6. Heather Dunbar

    I have been an herbalist for over two decades and have worked in the natural products industry as long. My standards for body care products is a high bar and for Green Bee Botanical products to be a part of my apothecary should speak volumes. Their formulas are crafted with integrity and care and they work! As the Director of Marketing and Communications for Sun+Earth Certified, I could not be more thrilled that Green Bee sources from our regenerative organic farmer community and is lifting up these farmers who has been cultivating cannabis for decades grown under the sun and in the soil. And the fact that the company is a part of 1% for the Planet en route to be B Corp Certified speaks to their level of mission driven nature. I wish more companies would follow their lead.

  7. Larry

    When I was younger I spent a lot of time in the sun without sunscreen and had a fair amount of sun damage. I’ve been using the Green Bee products for a little over a year now. I used to go to a dermatologist to get spots lasered off, I don’t need to do that anymore. My skin feels young, supple, and I have fewer wrinkles and my sun damage is almost completely gone. People regularly take me for 10 years younger than I am. I’m a true believer in Green Bee’s products, not only because they are natural but because they really work!

  8. Felisa Rogers

    I am constantly on the hunt for the best skincare products, and here they are. This product dramatically improved my skin–the difference was much more noticeable than from any other serum I’ve tried.

  9. Erika Sydow

    Green Bee came recommended by a friend, and couldn’t agree more! The Renewing Serum is a stellar product. The ingredients are clean and high quality. The feel of the product is wonderful, and it has a very mild pleasant smell. Most importantly it is very effective in renewing skin. I first started using the serum to address hyperpigmentation. My skin felt nourishment immediately and within weeks my hyperpigmentation was completely resolved. I continue to use the serum in my daily skincare routine. I have gifted this to my mom and she loves it as well, especially after sun exposure. Love this product and this company!

  10. Penby

    I have been using Bridget’s Green Bee Botanicals for years. It is the best skin product I have used. I get many people asking me what I use on my face and they are amazed just one product, renewing serum. Then I give them a bottle and they are as delighted with tye results as I am. Thank you Green Bee.

  11. Yesi, 32, Modesto

    I’m having the best experience with Green Bee Botanicals’ Renewing Serum — from DMing with the Green Bee team on Insta and opening the gorgeous packaging, to trying it and loving it and now sharing it with all my followers. CBD and THC do wonders for the skin (just ask the Kardashians!). Green Bee’s serum has already helped clear some dark spots I got from picking at pimples (I knoooow, horrible, lol). I was told this serum would give me a healthy glow, and that’s exactly what I’m experiencing. It smells so fresh and citrusy, which I love. I put a couple of pumps in my hand, rub my palms together to warm it up, then press it into my face, neck, chest, and everywhere else I can stretch those pumps out to. I use it every single day and night. I swear this product makes me feel expensive. My skin feels SO good. I have combination skin — dry in some places, oily in others— and this serum balances it all out. This is one of the best products I’ve ever used on my skin. I got that natural glow now, too!

  12. Allison K, 53, San Francisco

    I’ve been battling psoriasis for decades, and in recent years it spread to my face. It was extremely dry, blotchy and red and I hated looking at it. I covered it up with foundation as best I could. I started using Green Bee’s Renewing Serum two months ago after every psoriasis UV-light treatment, and I’m floored by the difference. My forehead is completely clear and my skin hasn’t looked this good in eons. A chronically clogged pore I’ve had since I was a teenager cleared up. Even without foundation, I’m getting random compliments on my skin now. My routine: Right out of the shower while still a little damp, I take 4 pumps of Renewing Serum and liberally apply it all over my face, neck, chest and hands, and then I let it soak in. It’s incredibly soothing. I don’t even need moisturizer or primer anymore. I feel like my face is hugging me back and saying thank you.

  13. Lilly (Oakland)

    My skin is really delicate and sensitive, with a touch of rosacea – and the smallest things will make it red and splotchy. And who knew I’d have worse zits in my 30s than I ever did as a teenager? Adding in the cannabinoid-rich serum into my skincare regimen from Green Bee has been a game-changer. The redness is gone, and I have way less bumps and pimples, and my skin is glowing. I feel like my face looks like I feel like I look on the inside again. Who would have thought I’d find a skincare miracle from my local dispensary? So glad I did.

  14. Elena D., 57, Sonoma

    The face serums and eye cream are AMAZING! I am super picky (40-year health food nut) and extremely sensitive to food and skin products. So I had some trepidation about the oil base and essential oils and scent in the serums, but when I tried them they felt like laying the essence of flower petals on my skin. The scent is super delicate, barely there, and the oil has a beautiful, light texture that absorbs nicely in not much time. And my skin reacted with nothing but happiness!

  15. J’Amy S., 56, Los Gatos

    What a treasure Green Bee is. The Renewing Serum is my favorite elixir and the secret to my beautiful, healthy skin.
