Ultra-relaxing, stress-relieving body lotion with natural ingredients that are clinically proven to help sleep.
Lavender, Chamomile, & Melatonin
Cloud 9 is the first collaboration to come out of the Careway Medical Network. We isolated evidence-backed herbal ingredients that address the three main factors behind good sleep: the circadian rhythm, sleep homeostasis, and the relaxed, stress-free state necessary to allow your hormones to do their job. The topical nature of Cloud 9 provides the added benefit of a dual delivery mechanism. Because each compound used works in a different, complementary way, we are able to provide a more effective sleep product with lower toxicity and negative effects. Other ingredients included include beautifying and moisturizing agents, as well as essential vitamins for long-term sleep and stress health. 60-day supply.
Melatonin (N-acetyl-5-Methoxytryptamine) is a natural occurring hormone produced by the pineal gland and helps regulate sleep and wakefulness. Your body has a unique internal clock which controls your sleeping and waking hours. In fact, this biological clock is directly related to the melatonin levels your body creates. Naturally, melatonin levels seem to drop slowly with age and as a result tens of millions of people use a melatonin supplement to help regulate their sleep.
Melatonin has shown great promise in helping people with circadian rhythm sleep disorders and has been proven to increase sleep latency. In our formula, melatonin serves as one of the main active ingredients and we are proud of the increased bioavailability that is reached through our unique transdermal application of one of the most popular supplements on the market.
English Lavender (Lavandula Angustifolia) is a flowering plant of the mint family known for its beauty and its sweet floral fragrance. It has been used for medicinal purposes for thousands of years, with the first written accounts found in the writings of the early Greek scholars.
Lavender works on one of the two main systems that regulate sleep, your homeostatic rhythm. The homeostatic rhythm generates pressure for sleep as a function of the amount of time elapsed since the last sleep episode, and vice versa. Lavender has been shown in clinical trials to be effective in promoting sleep, even at a greater rate than 8 other essential oils and a favorable one to a benzodiazepine. It has also been shown to significantly improve mood and anxiety, as well as decrease stress (reducing the hormone cortisol).
German Chamomile (Matricaria chamomilla L.) is one of the most widely used medicinal plants in the world for relieving anxiety and promoting sleep. None other than Peter Rabbit's mother used it -- she made a cup of chamomile tea for her son to help him sleep after a difficult day in Mr. MacGregor's garden.
In order to fall asleep, the mind must shut down its conscious thought and put aside its focus on its immediate surroundings, while your body must be comfortable enough that your brain essentially forgets that it is there. Chamomile helps ensure people are in the relaxed emotional and physical states necessary for your body’s physiological mechanisms to put you to sleep. Studies have backed up its calming effect, with a 2009 clinical trial showing a significant decrease in patient anxiety. The FDA considers chamomile to be safe with usually no side effects.
The ingredients in our cream base were chosen with the same care as the actives, including skin conditioning agents and relaxation inducing oils and minerals. Mango seed butter, jojoba seed oil, shea butter, and passion fruit seed oil act as powerful emollient agents. Passion fruit in particular is considered to be an excellent moisturizer for skin and may have profound stress relieving effects. Further, glyceryl stearate, glycerin, and stearic acid act as lubricants on the skin's surface, which gives the skin a soft and smooth appearance. It also slows the loss of water from the skin by forming a barrier on the skin's surface. Ylang ylang oil , as well as chamomile give Cloud 9 its distinct aromatherapeutic benefits.
