Whether you are a social media influencer, a stay-at-home parent, business owner, or office-goer, almost everyone has become familiar with the CBD health trend these days. With a rise in demand for natural, holistic skin and beauty products, it was only a matter of time before CBD products became some of your favourite beauty staples.
CBD has a lot of anecdotal health benefits and some scientifically proven ones. Its potential to provide anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, without the cognitive impairment characteristic of its counterpart THC, make it a potentially promising ingredient for the future of beauty products.
The Basics of CBD
Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a non-psychoactive component of cannabis and hemp, plants that have been used in medicine and textiles for over 5,000 years. The legislation surrounding the use of CBD has changed drastically in the last few years, which has paved the way for studies and research regarding its medicinal benefits.
While studies are incomplete and still underway, CBD displays the potential for offering a wide range of benefits that could transform the beauty industry. From facial oils and moisturisers to balms and salves, to targeted skincare, CBD beauty products are mild and complementary to many skin types.
1. CBD-Infused Facial Oil
Facial oils are a beneficial step in any beauty regimen, many of which provide moisture and anti-ageing benefits. Facial oils are often derived from plant and flower sources and contain a multitude of beneficial ingredients. Facial oils work with the natural oils of the face to create a protective barrier over the skin.
Adding a few drops of our full-spectrum CBD oil to any facial oil you might use may have the ability to slow the production of sebum, an oily excretion from the pores that can lead to acne. In addition, CBD, when administered topically, has demonstrated potential anti-inflammatory effects, which may counteract any redness and irritation due to breakouts or environmental pollution.
2. CBD-infused Balm
Balms are multipurpose ointments that may provide soothing and healing to various parts of the body. Our organic CBD balm is moisture-rich and full of Omega-3 fatty acids due to a base of rich hemp seed oil.
A combination of CBD extract, shea butter, cocoa butter, and coconut oil, this balm works well for targeting dry spots or as an all-over moisturiser that supports healthy bone and joint health. The natural rosemary and vanilla fragrance is subtle, yet soothing. The CBD balms come in 600 mg or 900 mg.
3. CBD Psoriasis Cream
Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition triggered by abnormal immune responses. Psoriasis causes skin cells to multiply 10 times faster than normal and results in red, itchy, and scaly patches on the skin. The liposomes technology in our psoriasis CBD cream allows the product to be delivered to the affected area rapidly to provide fast relief.
In addition to the benefits of CBD in our psoriasis cream, colloidal oatmeal has the potential to improve dryness and irritation symptoms. Beta-glucans found in oats have anti-inflammatory properties and promote the production of collagen, which helps to strengthen the skin’s protective barrier.
4. CBD Acne Cream
Our new CBD-infused acne cream is a Class I medical device that utilises liposomal technology to improve delivery and absorption rate. Liposomes are carriers that protect the CBD molecules and deliver them to the blood up to four times faster than standard carriers.
The powerful CBD and colloidal oatmeal combination work together to deliver layers of protection for vulnerable skin. Our non-GMO and cruelty-free acne cream can be applied to the skin up to twice per day. Our skin products are third-party tested for quality and the lab results are readily available via our website.
CBD and Ageing Skin
The skin is the largest organ in the human body and acts as a protective barrier from the outside world. Over time, it is natural for the skin to begin to lose lustre and softness, due to ageing. The skin produces less hyaluronic acid, which is responsible for keeping your skin moisturised and soft.
There are many ways to slow the ageing process and provide extra support to your skin, many of which can be found in CBD cosmetics. Some of the indications of ageing skin include lines and wrinkles, sagging, thin, dry, or rough skin, dull skin, and age spots.
CBD has long been grouped with the psychoactive cannabinoid THC because both occur naturally in plants in the cannabis sativa species. However, CBD is hemp-derived while recreational use is cannabis-derived. The cannabis plant and the hemp plant are close cousins, but hemp will not get you high.
CBD has gained popularity and a place in the holistic health spotlight for a wide range of benefits. Studies are ongoing; however, the World Health Organization has declared it relatively risk-free with only mild side effects and stated that it has a very low potential for abuse. This has spurred consumers to experiment with various CBD beauty brands of their own.
One of the best ways that CBD works to prevent signs of ageing is in its potential ability to protect and fight back against free radicals. Free radicals cause oxidative damage to the skin, which then further leads to wrinkles and other signs of ageing. Because free radicals are present in our day-to-day lives, protecting the skin with extra help from an antioxidant is essential.
