CBD in bath, body and skin products? The first question you should ask after that is “Why?” Alright, so, we know that CBD has been touted as the new “IT” ingredient. But, we weren’t going to make products using it just to be part of the crowd. Each product that we’ve developed using CBD uses it for a reason, some reasons, or many reasons.
First of all, what exactly is CBD? Cannabidiol, commonly known as CBD, is a naturally-occurring chemical compound found in cannabis plants (eg: marijuana and hemp) our CBD is derived from hemp plants. So, it is THC free. THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, is the chemical component found in marijuana that has the psychoactive effects. Again, you won’t find THAT in our products. Unlike THC, pure CBD (the kind we use) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid, meaning it doesn't make you feel high.
Why make products containing CBD? Research shows that CBD may be effective in helping to alleviate symptoms of inflammation, pain, acne, psoriasis, eczema, anxiety and insomnia. As a skin care company, we became interested in the effects on conditions such as acne, psoriasis and other skin conditions. What we found was that CBD offers fantastic antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits which can be great as an aid in treating skin concerns like inflammation, dryness and free radical damage,
CBD could also be beneficial for helping to fight acne as it helps reduce the production of sebum in the skin.
In essence, CBD is a great all around supplement that can help to relieve the pain, inflammation and other symptoms associated with acne, psoriasis, eczema and other skin conditions. It is also great for helping to fight free radicals, which can cause wrinkling and damage your skin.
