Today, some cosmetics contain CBD, a molecule found in cannabis. More than fashion, these products can become a real beauty care companion thanks to their soothing and restorative properties.
Did you know that cannabidiol, also known as CBD, is found in some of our cosmetics?
the use of CBD - a molecule contained in cannabis ... and in the composition of cosmetics.
It should be noted that hemp - the cannabis plant - has been used by humans since the Stone Age.
Hemp fiber is very strong, so it has been used to make ropes or clothing, as well as for its healing, soothing and anti-inflammatory properties.
Today we know that the soothing properties come from the CBD it contains. But we didn't know at the time it was empirical
CBD more than a fashionable product?
In 2021, CBD is found in creams, soaps, massage oils and shampoos. But what is the significance of adding this molecule to cosmetics? Is it for marketing reasons? Is it fashionable?
CBD is a true beauty ally:
it is a very powerful anti-inflammatory, acts a bit like a key that opens the door to calm the skin. The skin is daily attacked by ultraviolet rays, tobacco, junk food, stress, etc.
CBD is like a meditation teacher. It will teach the skin to concentrate on the essentials, to calm down, to recover better and to protect itself.
We know that if you smoke cannabis, you can become addicted to it.
Can you get addicted to CBD cream?
The cannabis plant has two main elements - tetrahydrocannabinol and CBD, which have completely different effects. Tetrahydrocannabinol is the one that causes addiction. CBD is in no way addictive.
Beware of sun exposure
Applying CBD products to the skin is not dangerous, but you should still pay attention to the composition of the product.
And in particular the presence of a specific molecule - terpene. If you are exposed to the sun with a cream containing terpenes, there is a risk of irritation, dark spots and even burns on the skin.
You have to check the composition to make sure that the terpenes are eliminated, or use the product in the evening without exposing yourself to the sun the next day, and with caution for very reactive skin
We also recommend trying the product on another part of the body first, without forgetting the sunscreen.
cbdtech cosmetics are made with isolate, which is 100% CBD and contains no other cannabinoids or terpenes. THEREFORE NO RISK OF BURN.
CBD helps to treat certain skin problems, such as atopic dermatitis, eczema, acne
Cannabidiol (CBD) is receiving great attention due to its therapeutic potential against various pathologies, including skin diseases. Topical hemp containing CBD, with creams and lotions appearing in specialty stores everywhere.
Where are the studies?
Cannabinoids have anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and antipruritic properties, but it is only recently that serious studies have been published to understand the main physiological effects.
According to previous research on dermatological diseases and the cannabis plant CBD, cannabidiol oil can help fight skin diseases, including eczema. It is also contained in cosmetic products - from body care to makeup.
The new use of this molecule will also help in the treatment of acne. Studies have repeatedly shown that certain cannabinoids can be used to treat psoriasis. Another example is that many features of Alzheimer's disease contribute to itching, including dry skin, histamine release, and sensory nerve fibers. Cannabinoids have a powerful antipruritic effect.
CBD for the skin, how does it work?
One possible explanation is that the cannabinoids THC and CBD act as immunosuppressants. Additionally, CBD is an excellent anti-inflammatory agent, so it can relieve symptoms of skin diseases, especially atopic dermatitis .
The skin contains receptors that interact with cannabinoids and can reduce symptoms. These effects manifest through a number of interactions between phytocannabinoids and our endogenous cannabinoid system.
Cannabidiol induces antioxidant pathways in keratinocytes: these are the cells that make up 90% of the surface layer of the skin (epidermis) and dandruff (nails, hair, feathers, scales). In other words, topical application of CBD increases keratin levels associated with skin proliferation and repair.
CBD cream for eczema?
There is currently no cure for these conditions. It is possible to treat with steroids, but they are not always effective
The effect of cannabinoids in patients with eczema has already been proven. Fortunately, there are several ways to apply it. There are topical creams that not only reduce symptoms but also help moisturize the skin.
