We have already talked about Cannabis and its medicinal benefits, but today we will talk about the use of CBD in the cosmetics industry. As it has no psychoactive agents and is a great natural moisturizer, CBD has been widely used in the production of beauty products.
What are the benefits of cannabis in skincare?
Skincare is an essential habit for many people, and nowadays a lot of consumers are opting for natural products, like cannabis oil. In addition to containing antioxidants with vitamins A, D and E, it helps reduce the effects caused by stress, pollution, and ultraviolet rays. Besides that, the cannabis oil has anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects which relieves pain.
In a 2014 study, it was concluded that the anti-inflammatory effect of cannabis helps with acne, some people’s greater concern. The acne inflames the skin, causing discomfort. It is caused by inflammation of the sebaceous glands and the pilosebaceous follicles of the face, shoulders, and back.
Which are the skincare products that may have cannabis in its composition?
– Moisturizing Serum: Serum with Cannabis oil is antioxidant and soothes the skin, de-stressing the skin.
– Balms: Used to take care of dry skins, cannabis-based balm moisturizes the skin and even reduces scars.
– Blotting paper: This paper used to remove oil from the skin of the face is made with hemp fibers (Cannabis plant).
– Repellent: Cannabis repellent, in addition to preventing insect bites, it helps heal previous bites.
– Soap and bath bombs: These bath products can relax the body, as well as relieve the stress caused by the daily routine. Also, it helps those who experience chronic pain.
The cannabis benefits for your hair:
As seen before, the substance has many vitamins and antioxidants, which allow the consumers to have a beautifully moisturized skin, and it’s no different with hair.
The vitamin E found in hemp oil improves the hair’s look, strength, and elasticity. Besides that, it keeps the scalp and the hair moisturized.
The oil has a consistency that does not leave the hair sticky. Also, it penetrates directly into the scalp, without leaving a dirty appearance.
Since it has omega 3, 6, and 9, it helps the hair to grow stronger, faster, and it improves the blood circulation, which is essential for the scalp.
The cannabis oil can be used as a leave-in, as a conditioner, and as a hair mask. All that due to its wonderful “powers” of hair recovery and moisturizing.
The use of cannabis in cosmetics, as well as containing incredible benefits for the skin and hair, is a huge evolution for the market and it helps to destroy the bad stigma over the plant.
Since the BAS Research foundation, we have worked hard to improve society and heal the world with safe cannabis products. We hope for the evolution of studies over cannabis so that other industry categories may enjoy its benefits. We do not work specifically with cosmetics yet, but you can find more information on the brands we help manufacture at our website. One of them is this balm from Verra Wellness.
One of our goals is to get people to know more about the cannabis benefits, and we also want to improve the quality of life for people who need it.
