The Cannabidiol (CBD)

The ground-breaking medicinal and pharmaceutical uses recently discovered for Cannabidiol (CBD), one of the active cannabinoid chemicals in the hemp plant, has also been found to be perfectly suited to cosmetic applications due to the supporting uses of anti-oxidant, anti-ageing, analgesic, and anti-anxiety properties.

Studies published by the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology have shown that cannabinoids are responsible for production of lipids, and thus play an important role in regulating and treating skin conditions. Furthermore, these treatments are highly efficient when applied locally and topically. When applied topically to the skin, CBD stimulates activity in the body’s endocannabinoid system alongside reduction in free radical’s existence, which encourages the skin’s own response, encouraging repair and rejuvenation. In addition, Cannabinoids assist to neutralize the harmful free radicals that bombard our skin from UV sources, such as the sun, which cause ageing, cancer, and impaired healing. In this way, Cannabinoids protect the skin from long-lasting damage.

CBD also works to increase the rate of absorption of other compounds into the skin, so that together with its own properties, the use of CBD in topical cosmeceutical applications results in healthier, protected, more youthful-looking skin and makes it the ideal basis for a new era of ground-breaking, effective, cosmetic treatments.

Furthermore, with review of over dozens of research studies on the safety and efficacy of CBD, there have been no significant side effects identified across a wide range of dosages, including acute and chronic dose regimens, using various modes of administration.
