The beauty industry’s obsession with CBD keeps growing. The market has become flooded with products containing this ingredient. What hides behind the sudden popularity of CBD oil skin care products?
Thanks to an anti-inflammatory effect, the so-called “miracle cure” helps to minimize inflammation of such skin problems as acne, eczema, or rosacea.  The CBD’s antioxidant properties have the potential to stop the overproduction of sebum, which causes the reduction of spots and fine lines. CBD’s pain-relieving properties can minimize muscle soreness, as well as eliminate the negative effects of sunburn and insect bites. The antioxidants in CBD fight against the first signs of aging by minimizing free-radical hazards and narrowing the area of inflammation. Thus, CBD anti-aging products can visibly minimize issues like wrinkles and dull skin tone. However, way more research is required before CBD’s impact on human skin will become fully discovered. There’s a lot of hype out there, but it’s still the Wild West.
CBD skin care is highly unregulated due to unethical CBD manufacturers saying only a half-truth about the CBD content in their products. Other manufacturers are selling products that may contain heavy and even harmful compounds. The National Industrial Hemp Council (NIHC) has recently provided a set of instructions to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in regard to CBD regulations. Now, the FDA has to constantly monitor the production and distribution of CBD products to the market. While FDA’s functions remain quite limited, manufacturers have to pay out of their own pockets to have their products tested by an independent lab.
Even if you decide to buy a CBD skincare product, at least make sure it contains an appropriate dosage. Check out the brand’s website for the instructions for use. Each CBD product should be accompanied by accurate information about its ingredients and dosage.
Unlike cannabis, CBD is legal in lots of countries across the globe. However, due to the fact that CBD is an extract from the cannabis plant, CBD legality is subject to multiple regulations. For instance, the use of CBD has been legalized in France, Spain, the UK, the USA (some states), and Canada, while it is totally forbidden in Russia and Denmark.
The reason for adding cannabidiol to products such as CBD makeup, creams, and serums is that its therapeutic benefits can be provided through a daily beauty routine. Don’t forget though, any benefits related to CBD beauty products have been just partially confirmed. Let’s check some beauty companies and their products that step ahead in the CBD self-care game.
