We hate it when one of our favorite beauty buys is discontinued, and it seems it's time to look for Kopari CBD Recovery Balm alternatives. Sadly, it looks as though the award-winning beauty buy is no longer available to shop in mainstream stores. 

The brand is famed for harnessing the many benefits of coconuts in their skincare routine staples—from the milk to the husk—which it sources sustainably from small family farms in Davao in the Philippines. The brand gives back to this community by providing access to clean water, school supplies, and even building new homes, which have affectionately been dubbed the Kopari Village. 

In the same way as the best vitamin C serums are seen as a non-negotiable part of a brightening skincare regime, CBD has gained a lot of traction in beauty circles in the past five or so years. Considered a superior calming ingredient, CBD is the non-psychoactive component of the hemp plant, it's thought to take the sting out of spots and help to calm sensitive skin types.

Fans loved Kopari's vegan coconut balm, which contained hemp that had been cold-pressed into a fine powder in order to retain 100 per cent of the plant's nutrients. The balm melted into the skin allowing you to deeply hydrate dry, chapped skin, ease muscles post-workout, and massage into your temples if you feel a headache coming on. 

Why was Kopari CBD Recovery Balm discontinued?

The short answer is that we don't know why the brand decided to pull this product. However, while we don't have official confirmation from the brand, the balm does indeed appear to have been discontinued as it's no longer available at stockists like Ulta and Revolve.

For those mourning the loss of these little tubs, or looking for a similar CBD body product, we've pulled some Kopari CBD Recovery Balm alternatives below to help you on your way to finding a new forever fave.
