our products are lab-tested for quality + purity (always) and are made from broad-spectrum, micro-encapsulated cbd. what does this mean? different than a “cbd-isolate” product that is cbd only, “broad-spectrum cbd” involves the entourage effect of additional compounds like omega-3 + -6, cannabinoids, and terpenes found naturally in the hemp plant, without the thc. no thc = no high. micro-encapsulated means our products pack a potent amount of CBD in a small package.
cbd has been found to inhibit sebum production (adios oily skin!). sebum is a waxy substance made up of dead skin cells, oil, sweat, and dust. by inhibiting this sludge from forming, the anti inflammatory omega-3’s can penetrate the skin and soothe and calm redness while the powerhouse omega-6 (the most important essential fatty acid for healthy skin) can step in an address and heal underlying skin issues.
so what does this CBD do for your skin? studies have shown that it:
- reduce redness
- is a natural emollient that smooths the surface of the skin
- impairs sebum production; this helps prevent + clear acne breakouts
- inhibits tumor growth to an extent; this helps combat the oxidative stress your skin experiences daily
back to 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 (like cbd) and a multitude of terpenes. terpenes are oil-based compounds that give essential oils most of their fragrance + healing properties.
the collective properties of the terpenes include: antimicrobial, antibacterial, antifungal, antioxidant, and antiseptic. this means even clearer, brighter, and happier skin!
