our products are always lab-tested for quality + purity and are made from broad-spectrum, micro-encapsulated cbd. our hemp-derived, broad-spectrum cbd is what we like to call "whole-plant medicine" which means it includes the entourage effect of additional compounds found in hemp- like omega-3 + 6, cannabinoids, and terpenes- minus the thc. no thc = no high. and micro-encapsulated means our products pack a potent amount of CBD in a small package. this microencapsulation releases the healing properties of broad spectrum cbd throughout the day rather than all at once so your skin is nourished from a.m. to p.m. microencapsulated CBD (or similar technology) is the only way a beauty product can penetrate the top two layers of your skin (the epidermis and dermis) to get in touch with your body's endocannabinoid system.
you may have heard of a sticky, pore-clogging substance called sebum, it's made up of dead skin cells, oil, sweat, and dust. cbd has long been found to inhibit sebum production so you can finally say adios! to oily skin. when cbd inhibits sebum from forming, then the omega-3’s can penetrate deep into your skin and soothe and calm redness while the powerhouse omega-6 (the most important essential fatty acid for healthy skin) can step in and address underlying skin issues.
studies have shown that CBD:
- reduces redness
- is a natural emollient that smooths the surface of the skin
- impairs sebum production; this helps prevent + clear acne breakouts
- combats the oxidative stress your skin is constantly bombarded with
one more note on the topic of the entourage effect of cannabinoids + terpenes: in nature, many different compounds are found in the hemp plant, not just cbd. there are hundreds of cannabinoids and a multitude of terpenes. terpenes are oil-based compounds that give essential oils their fragrance + healing properties. the collective properties of the terpenes include: antimicrobial, antibacterial, anti-fungal, antioxidant, and antiseptic. hence, using whole-plant medicine in our products means you're going to have healthier, brighter, and happier skin
