CBD skincare is a niche market that is steadily growing. In the past few years, I’ve seen CBD used as a cosmetic ingredient for skincare products. At first I thought it was just a passing fad. But it could actually be here to stay, with more and more brands choosing the CBD route. I was curious to find out what all the popularity was about, and if this ingredient could live up to it’s claims.
I’m sure most of you know what CBD is. So, there’s no need to go into a long winded explanation. CBD or cannabidiol is an active ingredient in the cannabis plant, well known for it’s therapeutic effect. Unlike THC, it contains no psychoactive components and its unable to get you high (so there’s no need to worry).
The Benefits of CBD in Skincare
CBD or cannabidiol has numerous benefits when applied topically to the skin. It is has many healing properties, and can be used in a variety of ways.
After carefully researching the benefits of CBD in skincare, I am interested in trying a few CBD products to see if they live up it to their claims. There are many CBD skincare lines to choose from. It’s appears to be a good cosmetic alternative to improve the skin’s overall health and promote longevity.
CBD can protect the skin against harmful environmental aggressors, UVB rays, soothe inflammation and provide moisture. I think that if coupled with the right ingredients, CBD could really add an extra boost to any skincare formulation.
I’m really looking forward to watching the growth of CBD in skincare. This natural alternative might be the next miracle cure (though that remains to be seen). Let’s wait and see.
