Finding the best CBD cosmetics for you
Odds are, if you use CBD, you probably use a CBD oil. They’re far and away the most popular way to use CBD, largely as a result of them being the most traditional method. That doesn’t necessarily mean they’re the best CBD product for you though.
CBD is incredibly versatile, which is why it’s been utilised in such a wide range of product types, from CBD oils to CBD edibles and CBD e-liquids. Today, we’re going to look at CBD cosmetics, going over what you should look for in a CBD cosmetic, and how to decide between the huge number of options. Before you buy CBD, always consult Vitality CBD.
What are CBD cosmetics?
In the world of CBD, categories are rarely named in a complicated fashion. CBD oils are CBD extract mixed with a carrier oil; CBD edibles are a CBD extract blended into a food item, like our CBD Gummy Bears, and CBD cosmetics are...drumroll, please...CBD extract mixed into a cosmetic product.
Still, if CBD is normally taken through an oil, a vapour, then how does taking it through a topical cream or balm differ? Surely it can’t work in the same manner? Well, to understand that, we have to look at the endocannabinoid system.
CBD and the endocannabinoid system
Whenever you take CBD, or cannabidiol, you’re taking a class of compounds known as ‘cannabinoids’. Though first discovered in the hemp plant, they are found throughout the entirety of nature, including (you guessed it) the human body. These cannabinoids are known as endocannabinoids—literally, internal cannabinoids.
These endocannabinoids form the cornerstone of the endocannabinoid system, a vast network that is spread throughout the majority of your organs, your nervous system, and your immune system. Most importantly? It’s also found across your skin!
The endocannabinoid system monitors your bodily processes and ensures networks like the nervous system operate correctly. It acts as an assistant manager, overseeing certain parameters like temperature, pressure and pH and making sure they stay in a state of balance.
When you take a CBD cosmetic, the CBD interacts with the many, many endocannabinoid receptors in your skin. Rather than focusing on getting CBD into your circulatory system, as you would when taking a CBD oil, instead, you’re applying it right on the desired target.
What makes a good CBD cosmetic?
If there’s one thing we’ve learnt over the course of creating 15 different CBD topicals, many of which are cosmetics, it’s that CBD works best when accompanied with other high quality ingredients. Don’t accept a low quality product simply because it has the added value of CBD.
Already know what makes a great cosmetic? Then you’re at a great advantage. Before you buy CBD, you can check through the ingredient lists to see whether you’re getting a quality, natural product, and even the surrounding text to see what the brand in question emphasises. There’s no hard and fast rule, but some quick detective work will unveil a cheap, cash-grab product
Less informed about what makes a good cosmetic? Then the same still applies. Read the text, and see how informed it feels—if it only discusses CBD then the makers probably haven’t taken the time to research and develop first-rate products. Our own research is why all of our CBD cosmetics have several additional feature ingredients.
Our CBD cosmetics
We wouldn’t give advice we hadn’t followed ourselves, which is why we built our entire CBD cosmetics range, Infused, from the ground-up. Each product had to function well of its own accord before we added our high-quality CBD extract, else it wasn’t approved.
The main thing that makes our range special is that we haven’t just curated a great selection of ingredients for each product; we’ve also chosen three lead ingredients that are so special we had to include them in every single one.
- CBD: This might not come as a surprise, but it’s an important one. We built our range around CBD because we believe in it as an innovative, natural, safe new ingredient.
- AnnonaSense: We chose AnnonaSense as the perfect complement to CBD, since it’s another activator of your endocannabinoid receptors. That’s why it wonGOLD Innovation Zone Best Ingredient Award at in-cosmetics Asia.
- Argan Stem Cells: To support these two novel ingredients, we’ve introduced a well-established third lead. A safely produced mirror of the protected argan tree, these stem cells are immensely powerful.
