CBD and Beauty – What is the industry about?

Beauty goes ‘green’ – The CBD takeover of the beauty and makeup world
In case you have not noticed: CBD’s seemingly endless list of benefits and uses has caught the attention of the beauty industry!

The number of beauty and makeup products that harness the potential of CBD has skyrocketed. Consumer demand for eco-friendly, natural and organic products has exploded in recent years!

What is CBD?

CBD is the shorter, tongue-friendly name for the cannabinoid cannabidiol. It is extracted from the hemp plant and is now used worldwide for its natural health and wellness benefits. CBD does not get you high (unlike its cannabinoid cousin THC) and is completely legal in the UK, EU and most of the US.

CBD and the beauty industry

The range of CBD products has exploded in the beauty world. You can now find skincare products, makeup, and even hair care products that are infused with CBD.

Many CBD brands or products have been created out of an attempt to capitalize on the latest trend – now they seem to be catching on. More and more people are realising the effects that CBD-based products can have. Demand is steadily increasing, and it shows no signs of slowing down. On top of that, consumers are also demanding eco-friendly, organic, and natural products. In recent years, cosmetic brands big and small have heard the call.

Why use CBD for beauty products?

CBD has made a splash in the beauty world for several reasons:

 

CBD’s well-known anti-inflammatory properties are probably the main reason for its popularity. Many of you will already know that the vast majority of skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, pimples and acne, redness, dryness, and so on. These are caused by one type of inflammation or another. CBD is taken by millions of people worldwide to relieve inflammation. Inflammation is caused by a variety of health issues, and skincare is no different!

Many people are beginning to find that recurring skin problems can disappear when they incorporate natural CBD oils, beauty products, and skin creams into their daily routines. This brings us to our next point…

CBD is an all-natural ingredient

As we mentioned earlier, the demand for organic and natural beauty products has increased tremendously in recent years. This is partly because there are a ton of chemicals and compounds in non-natural beauty products. These can do more harm than good to your skin. And people are starting to become aware of this fact!

However, if you source your CBD products from a manufacturer who cares about the quality of their product, then it is almost certainly 100% organic and natural. It should also have been extracted using an ultra-precise and clean method such as supercritical CO2 extraction to ensure that virtually no impurities are found.

Most natural or organic products are usually much gentler on your skin and may even help prevent (or cause) long-term damage!

CBD comes in many forms

CBD can be taken orally or topically, so it can be found in a variety of products. You’ll find CBD skin creams, moisturisers, healing balms, hand creams, lipsticks, eye shadows, blushes, shampoos, and conditioners. The list goes on and on. If you can imagine anything, someone is doing it with CBD now.

This is great news for people looking to switch to a natural beauty regimen because the variety is endless!

And if you do not want to take the plunge just yet, or do not want to switch up your makeup palette, you can take CBD orally. Taking CBD orally can provide you with health benefits that can benefit your appearance without even trying…

CBD for whole body wellness

CBD has so many health and wellness benefits that many people can be surprised by its effects. It’s not uncommon for someone to start taking CBD for a specific reason and find that it eliminates an entirely different problem, or one they did not even know they had!

For example, bags under the eyes are a common sign of poor sleep quality. CBD oil, when taken orally, has been shown to drastically improve sleep quality in some people, making them look and feel fresher and more alert! It’s a win-win situation!

The same goes for stress and anxiety. For many people, stress or anxiety can show up physically. For example, many people find that skin conditions like psoriasis or eczema can flare up when they are suffering from stress or anxiety. CBD, when taken orally, can reduce the effects of both and alleviate associated skin conditions. As a bonus, CBD-based topical treatments like skin creams and moisturisers can enhance the effects or be used all by themselves!
