CBD in Skincare


Why celebs and models are captivated by CBD oil, the beauty phenomenon of today
What exactly is CBD oil, and what does it do for you?

The internet was abuzz last week as Kim Kardashian celebrated the baby shower of baby number 4. And not just any baby shower, no, the party was completely CBD-themed. For anyone unfamiliar with that acronym (yes, I too had to google it): CBD stands for the active ingredient cannabidiol, which is extracted from the leaves of industrial hemp (fiber hemp). Rest assured that this hemp plant is completely legal and in no way addictive or mind-altering. But what exactly is CBD oil, and why is it all the hype within the health and beauty industry?

What is CBD oil?

It’s been known for a while now that CBD is far from just for Amsterdam tourists. Only cannbidiol, the active substance from the fiber hemp, is processed into CBD oil. And not the mind-altering substance THC, for which the CBD plant is so well known. Originally, the effects of CBD oil focused on health, not necessarily skincare. Cannabidiol is said to have a calming and healing effect, which is why it is very popular with celebrities, models and beauty buffs. For example, the substance helps relieve pain, sleep problems and stress. There have even been several studies showing that CBD could also help with diabetes and Parkinson’s disease, but to find real evidence of the possible effects, more research is needed. CBD oil is therefore still a food supplement and not a medicine, as is sometimes thought.

But in addition to these health benefits, CBD also has a positive effect on the skin. It can both calm and purify the skin, making skin problems (such as redness) a thing of the past. In addition, the skin is cared for thanks to vitamins A and D, and a glowing skin is also part of the deal. No wonder then that CBD has now conquered the beauty market. CBD oil is incorporated into various types of products, from oils to creams. Well-known users include Paula Begoun, Kim Kardashian, Alessandra Ambrosio, Jennifer Aniston and Gwyneth Paltrow. Kim Kardashian, for example, makes no secret of her CBD obsession.

Her baby shower is an example of this, but she also lets us know that she is a big fan of the Korean spa Pellequr in Los Angeles, where CBD is processed in all products and treatments. In addition, Gwyneth Paltrow is one of the most well-known CBD enthusiasts. For example, the actress promotes the product extensively through her lifestyle brand Goop.

Paula’s Choice

When none other than Paula Begoun is a fan, you can be sure that CBD skincare is more than just hype. In a brief personal interview, she explained why, “We spent three years researching CBD in conjunction with skincare. Because of the extensive research we knew for sure that it is safe to use. Your skin a its own network of cannabinoid communication, which is all about anti-inflammatories. Skincare should always be about anti-inflammation. This is what we have been working on since 1995 and CBD is a great addition to this because it communicates with your skin cells, just like Retinol.

CBD has its own network, which is unique.’ And the nice thing is: everyone can stand CBD; it’s suitable for every skin type, no matter what your ‘problem’ is. ‘Not everyone can stand Retinol, but that’s often because the other ingredients aren’t right or because someone uses a lot of dermarollers or essential oils. Our CBD skin care is completely safe, for everyone.’ How quickly you see results depends on the status of your skin. For example, if you are in the sun a lot, it may take longer for you to experience the results of the product. If your skin is in good condition, it will absorb the product faster and you will see a difference almost immediately.

The CBD Skin Transformative Treatment Milk is a good option for many skin types, especially if you are looking for skin care that addresses skin problems preventively. The CBD Oil + Retinol is the perfect solution for anyone looking to address the underlying causes and visible signs of skin aging. The 98% natural cannabidiol- and retinol-rich oil uses a multi-faceted approach to help your skin act calmer, firmer and younger. In addition to the benefit of having CBD and retinol together in one product, the 0.5% retinol concentration is a great intermediate option for when your skin doesn’t tolerate higher strength retinol well.
