While CBD (cannabidiol) is reported to have several research-backed benefits, many consumers are unaware that it also has potential skin and beauty benefits. In this article, we discuss CBD and its possible use as a natural skincare product.
What is CBD?
CBD (cannabidiol) is a plant-based compound naturally secreted by both cannabis and hemp. The most well-studied cannabinoid to date, CBD has demonstrated researched-backed potential for a wide variety of different applications. However, studies are ongoing, and no definitive proof has been established.
CBD-infused products are a safe, natural way to enhance beauty and combat irritating skin problems. It’s made from organic hemp and hemp seed oil, both plant-based products that are 100% natural and completely chemical-free. Learn more
Potential Beauty Benefits of CBD
The Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology published a study demonstrating that the human body produces endocannabinoids that help maintain skin health and keep away pathogens. These are very similar to endocannabinoids derived from the hemp plant, such as CBD.
A report in the Huffington Post also mentions a study carried out by the British Journal of Pharmacology, which suggests that CBD may have potential applications for various skin conditions.
There’s also a separate study demonstrating that both CBD and CBG (cannabigerol) can potentially help manage cell proliferation and cell differentiation.
What Can CBD-Based Cosmetic Products Do for You?
Studies carried out by the University of London demonstrate that CBD has anti-bacterial properties. This means it could potentially help various skin conditions. Many companies also offer CBD-infused anti-aging products to help curb oxidant stress and cell degeneration.
CBD-infused beauty products bring the inherent benefits of hemp oil to the consumer in a more potent form. Rich in Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids, CBD has what it takes to bring dramatic results to your skin, hair, and nails. Most commonly, CBD is used in moisturizers, exfoliation products, cleansers, and eye creams.
