CBD is the beauty industry’s latest must-have ingredient, but it’s no passing fad. People have been using hemp oil in products for years, but now that legislation has made it possible to use CBD in the beauty industry, many companies are jumping on board. This is because CBD has long been touted for its anti-inflammatory benefits, though it was previously stigmatized as a “drug.” However, CBD has no psychoactive effects (unlike its very misunderstood cousin, THC). It’s just a potent natural ingredient, just like many other plant-based ingredients on the market.
Ashley Lewis, co-founder and CEO of the popular curated CBD e-commerce platform, Fleur Marche, explains why CBD isn’t just a trend; it’s here to stay. “The data behind CBD’s positive effects on skin care is really promising, which is why we’re always eager to learn about new CBD-infused beauty products. Some of the more exciting research is on CBD as a potent antioxidant, as well as its ability to reduce lipid production from the sebaceous glands (overproduction of this “sebum” is what leads to acne). This research has some really positive implications for how CBD can be a really important ingredient in skin care and make a long term mark in the beauty space,” Lewis states.
Fleur Mache’s website isn’t just a place to buy great products with CBD — it’s also an easy-to-use platform where you can learn about proper dosages for healing benefits, as well as the difference between full spectrum CBD, broad spectrum and isolates in your beauty products. Regardless of how you choose to take your CBD, there’s a beauty product out there for everyone. From products for sore muscles to eye and face creams, check out these eight exciting beauty products that are bringing CBD into the mainstream beauty industry.
