You probably already know some of the amazing health benefits cannabis provides for us, but why it’s now considered a super-ingredient in skincare, you’ll find below:
You’ve got 99 problems, but your skin ain’t one? Then you’re probably one of the people that have already added cannabis to their skincare routine. But, if you’re new to the game, you’ll have to look closely when it comes to the ingredients. Because not all hemp is created equal!
BACK TO THE ROOTS: HELLO, HEMP SEED OIL!
Yes - you read that right: Pure plant power-extracted right from the seeds of the hemp plant. Why? Because they contain wonderful nourishing nutrients that can help provide beautiful and healthy skin. Dermatologist and Skincare Coach, Dr. Sarah Schunter, puts it this way:
But it’s getting even better! „On the one hand, linoleic acid is a building block for the formation of the skin's own ceramides - important for a healthy and intact skin barrier. On the other hand, linoleic acid has nourishing and anti-inflammatory properties.“, Sarah says. But it gets better: With its extra dose of vitamin E, hemp seed oil also brings in a popular antioxidant that reduces UV-induced skin damage such as aging spots. So it's an absolute no-brainer that we’ve decided to opt for an extra dose of hemp seed oil in both our Face Serum and Face Cream! And no one is excluded from the party because both products are suitable for all skin types. High fives everywhere!
THREE LETTERS: C-B-D
There’s a lot to learn in the magic world of hemp and cannabis! We want to make sure you don’t mistake our highly praised hemp seed oil with CBD oil. CBD oil is obtained from the flowers and leaves of the female hemp plant which contain cannabidiol, a non-psychoactive cannabinoid. Ointments and creams with CBD components can provide relief for major skin problems such as acne, psoriasis, or eczema.
Want more insight? Our body has a sophisticated endocannabinoid system that regulates basic functions and patterns such as inflammation, immune functions, reproduction, and metabolism - just to name a few. Externally supplied cannabinoids such as CBD not only interact directly with this system but also inhibit the breakdown of the body's own endocannabinoids. Therefore, it can help regulate any present imbalances.
But hey - if your #1 priority is to protect and nourish your skin, then the hemp seed oil in our products is a damn good place to start. And if you’re here to get high - it's only on good skincare!
