Understanding CBD beauty and skincare
It may come as a surprise to learn that CBD, a cannabis-derived product, is used in cosmetic and skincare products but there are many benefits to using CBD and these include a range of effects that CBD has on our endocannabinoid system, and as a result, our immune system and other bodily functions.
Cannabidiol, or as we know it CBD, is one of well over a hundred different cannabinoids found within the cannabis plant. It is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid which means that there is no 'high' or 'stoned' feeling from using CBD, there is however a range of potential benefits that CBD can have for skin.
Let us take a look at the main reported benefits:
- CBD is well-known for its antioxidant properties - great for helping to combat oxidative stress caused by free radicals. CBD can help to prevent damage from environmental factors such as pollution and UV rays that often contribute to skin damage and premature ageing.
- The anti-inflammatory effects of CBD have been shown to reduce many types of inflammation, including for skin conditions. It can help treat the pain and discomfort of unwanted skin conditions as well as reduce redness and soreness.
- CBD helps to balance the production of sebum, an oily excretion made by the skin to keep our skin moisturised. CBD interacts with our endocannabinoid system and helps to regulate various functions within our body including the overproduction of sebum, which can lead to greasy, oily and spotty skin. People suffering from skin disorders like sensitive skin acne and psoriasis might benefit from a CBD skin care routine.
- CBD has great moisturising capabilities, making it a great natural choice of moisturising product suitable for sensitive and dry skin. CBD aids moisturisation and helps to maintain your skin's level of moisture so that it has a clean, glowing appearance.
- CBD has shown positive results in providing anti-ageing effects. The antioxidant properties of CBD can help neutralise free radicals and ultimately prevent damage to the skin which can lead to fine lines and wrinkles.
Of course, CBD has many other potential benefits that can help aid a healthy skin care or beauty routine and, all the time, it is potentially helping to boost our immune responses and help regulate other functions within our bodies as well as aiding relaxation and stress reduction. With this in mind, it's no wonder that CBD body cream and other skin care products are growing in popularity.
The growth of CBD in beauty and skincare
Developments in the medicinal cannabis industry mean that items like CBD products are being utilised in exciting and innovative ways. The CBD industry grows exponentially bigger while funding goes into research and new product ranges that are taking wellness to the next level, just like CBD skin care products - they have a wide range of uses and are suitable for a large range of users.
As CBD has many attributes that can be beneficial to wellness and skincare, it is not surprising that many different CBD cosmetic and skincare products are being made by top CBD manufacturers. We're experiencing somewhat of an awakening in terms of wellness and our awareness of the natural world around us. More than ever people are looking for products that are beneficial to their health, that are alternatives to their normal daily products, that promote wellness and are made using eco-friendly methods.
CBD skin care products are gaining popularity because of their organic and eco-friendly contents, their natural beneficial properties and their potentially relaxing and therapeutic effects. Let's look at some of the reasons CBD skincare products are in-demand:
CBD products have a plant-based appeal
People looking to transition to a plant-based or wellness-centred lifestyle will want to choose a natural product that has plenty to offer in terms of where it is sourced, how it is made, and its potential benefits. There are a number of CBD skin care products that are made from natural ingredients, are vegan-friendly and have an eco-friendly manufacturing and packaging process.
There are many potential benefits to skin health
What is interesting is that CBD works for many different pains, ailments, disorders and also for things like stress reduction and mood enhancement. CBD has anti-inflammatory benefits and when combined in a topical product like a cream, ointment, balm or moisturiser directly to the skin it can help reduce the appearance of things like skin redness and help treat acne, as well as provide soothing properties.
CBD products may offer relaxation
CBD and other cannabinoid products have been known to provide users with reportedly relaxing and enjoyable effects. People often use CBD-based products for stress reduction, boosting mood and also simply for enjoyment, the perfect addition to any daily or regular skincare routine.
CBD is a UK legal product
Here in the UK, most of Europe and in parts of the US, CBD is a legal product. The cannabinoid commonly illegal and associated with a high or altered state of consciousness is THC, and it's on the Controlled Substances Act. In the UK (and most of Europe) CBD products must contain no more than 0.2% THC in order to be considered legal. This is the amount of THC deemed safe for consumption without causing any psychological effect.
Common myths about CBD skin care
You'll have probably heard various myths about CBD and skin care products but all is not what it seems. Let's clear a few things up so that you have the knowledge to step into the CBD skin care and cosmetics world well-informed.
CBD works instantaneously
CBD does not work instantly and this will remain a myth as it is not backed up by evidence. That doesn't mean CBD doesn't get started once it's entered your system - in fact, topicals soak in through the skin and the CBD can often be applied directly to the affected area meaning results can be quick (but not instant). Instant relief may be felt from an applied cream or balm but this is mainly due to the soothing effect of applying such a product to sore or irritated skin.
CBD also has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties as well as other functions that help to relieve these symptoms and these can often be experienced quickly, but not instantly.
CBD is a cure for all skin issues
Unfortunately, this is not true. CBD does work as an effective treatment for many skin conditions, but it's not a 'one size fits all' solution. CBD skin care products have a target audience and are mostly for specific uses. You will need to find a product that is for the ailment that you're aiming to treat and one that suits any requirements you have, bearing in mind your unique criteria. There are plenty of product ranges offering different strengths, scents and effects and many innovative new products that are pushing the boundaries of skincare and cosmetics.
CBD will get you high
As many of you will know, and for those of you who don't, CBD does not get you high. CBD is a non-psychoactive compound found within and extracted from hemp and cannabis plants. There are many cannabinoids found within cannabis plants that contribute to the 'high' experienced by cannabis users but CBD does not cause a high.
More CBD is better
Some users may report that higher doses provide more effects that lead to better or faster results, but this is not necessarily true. The efficacy of a CBD skincare product depends on many factors including, the severity of the symptoms you're trying to treat, your unique skin type, the formula of the product, and other included ingredients.
It's recommended to use a 3rd party lab-tested product that provides certification of the contents so that you know you're getting what you pay for, and a product that is aligned with your needs. The best CBD skincare product for you is the one that is comfortable, enjoyable and works with your skin.

Some will contain essential oils, cannabis sativa seed oil, hemp seed oils as well as other natural herbs and ingredients.

What does the future of CBD skin care look like?
The future of the CBD beauty and skincare industry appears promising and dynamic, driven by innovation and increasing consumer interest. With market growth as more people are aware of the potential benefits of CBD beauty products, we're likely to see product diversification and the expansion of CBD-infused product ranges beyond oils and serums. We're already seeing more cleansers, masks, lip balms and suncreams, so there's every chance this will continue to the benefit of consumers.
As we mentioned earlier, people are increasingly looking for sustainable and ethically produced products. The CBD beauty industry is moving towards more environmentally friendly practices, including sustainable sourcing of CBD, eco-friendly packaging, and cruelty-free testing. Brands that emphasise these values are likely to resonate more with modern consumers as time goes on.
As with any evolving industry, companies that stay ahead of consumer trends, regulatory changes, and scientific advancements are likely to thrive and the growth of this industry depends largely on regulatory developments, continued research, and consumer perceptions. Continued research and clinical studies can strengthen the credibility and effectiveness of CBD in beauty products.
