CBD ingredients have become extremely popular in the beauty and personal care market. It seems like most skincare companies are launching CBD brands or adding CBD to their existing lines. As the taboo around cannabis ends, mainstream stores like CVS, Walgreens, Ulta, and Sephora now carry CBD skincare products and high-end retailers such as Barneys are taking it a step further and embracing all forms of the plant by opening high-end cannabis lifestyle stores.
CBD Anti-inflammatory Properties
CBD oil contains anti-inflammatory properties which can help many skin ailments. One of them being acne. Since acne is an inflammatory skin condition, topical CBD skincare has been showed to calm and soothe the skin helping to reduce breakouts and redness. There is even talk of CBD reducing oil production, which could help immensely with controlling acne!
CBD Antioxidant Properties
CBD oil has antioxidant properties which could help to counteract free-radical damage in people with aging skin. These CBD oils, lotions and salves are being marketed for lessening the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and skin dullness.
CBD Analgesic (pain-killing) Properties
One of the most popular reasons skincare companies are incorporating CBD into their products is because of the pain-relieving claims. CBD lotions applied topically that moisturize and hydrate but can also provide pain relief from ailments like arthritis, seem to be top sellers.
CBD Independent Laboratories
Unfortunately, not all products on the market contain the amount of CBD that some companies state. According to a research study published in the peer-reviewed medical journal “JAMA” the researchers tested 84 products that had a CBD label. They found 26 percent of the products tested had less CBD oil than advertised, which could affect how the product works.
Ensuring the CBD skincare products you purchase come from a company that uses an independent laboratory to confirm the labeling ingredients is a smart idea when looking for high-quality brands.
CBD vs Hemp Seed Oil
Another thing to keep in mind is that CBD oil is not the same as hemp seed oil. The two are often advertised interchangeably, but CBD oil is concentrated in cannabidiol, whereas hemp seed oil only contains trace amounts of cannabidiol.
Is More Testing Needed?
As sales increase for CBD products, many doctors and dermatologists are recommending people wait for more solid testing results. But this hasn't stopped the CBD skincare industry from quickly becoming a multibillion-dollar business!
