CBD Kosmetik - Beauty trend and miracle cure
For thousands of years cannabis has been used to treat a wide variety of ailments. Be it in the medical or cosmetic field. The cannabis plant is so versatile that researchers - even now - have a lot of work to do to fully explore the phenomenon of cannabis. What is certain, however, is that 113 different cannabinoids have been discovered in the cannabis plant so far, all of which have different positive properties. For this reason, cannabis has been increasingly used in medicine for several years. But also in cosmetics the mysterious plant is slowly but surely surpassing conventional cosmetics. But what is the hype about it? Is the enthusiasm justified or is the demand for cannabis cosmetics just one of many trends that will not last long?
Mirror, mirror on the wall, which is the most popular plant in the whole country?
Cannabis has always been on everyone's lips but what is it that has made the plant so incredibly popular, especially in recent years? The key word in this question is cannabidiol, CBD for short. A cannabinoid which is as diverse in its mode of action as the cannabis plant itself. Although the now enormously popular cannabinoid was discovered as early as 1940, it did not come onto the German market until 2016, and only under the strictest of conditions. However, CBD is currently legally and freely available in Europe as long as the THC content does not exceed the limit.
This is one of the reasons why CBD is so popular. You don't have to be afraid of being prosecuted if it is consumed. Another reason is the fact that CBD, unlike THC, is not intoxicating, which is why the active ingredient is especially interesting for medicine and cosmetics. Numerous studies have so far proven the anti-inflammatory, calming, pain-relieving and anxiety-relieving effects of cannabinoid. In creams or generally hemp cosmetics, the active ingredient can therefore be quite helpful to supply the skin with sufficient nutrients and to treat skin irritations and even skin diseases. This is because CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system present in our body, which has receptors that are distributed throughout the body. The active ingredient CBD docks on these receptors, which are also located in the skin, in order to freely unfold its positive properties from there.
Hemp cosmetics - how the cosmetics work What is also interesting for cosmetics, besides the above mentioned properties, is the fact that hemp cosmetics contain a high percentage of unsaturated fatty acids, stearic acid, oleic acid and linoleic acid. All these ingredients are proven to be basic sources for the supply of fatty acids, which are essential for skin care and other cosmetic purposes. Hemp cosmetics, however, as already mentioned, are also ideal for the treatment of skin diseases such as acne, psoriasis or neurodermatitis. Especially the anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving effect is what can help to soothe the unpleasant areas. Furthermore, hemp cosmetics contain valuable antioxidants, which are important to counteract the aging process of the skin. Vitamin C, for example, is also an antioxidant that makes sallow skin glow again and smoothes the complexion.
You can find these products in the hemp cosmetics
The selection of hemp cosmetic products is now large. But what is the choice and what are the advantages of hemp cosmetic products?
Hemp cosmetics - ointments and creams The unsaturated fatty acids counteract dry skin and compensate the aging process of the skin. In addition, the products contain a high proportion of omega 6 fatty acids, which in turn contain valuable gamma linolenic acids, which are a basic requirement for healthy skin. Gamma-linolenic acids prevent the skin from becoming dry and cracked, making it more susceptible to inflammation.
Hemp cosmetics - Shower gels and bath additives
Studies show that CBD helps to relax muscles, making shower gels and bath additives enriched with CBD ideal for athletes. Groups of people who have problems with tension can also benefit from the properties of this type of hemp cosmetics. Furthermore, the anxiety-relieving, calming effect promotes relaxation and stress reduction.
Hemp soaps are ideal for daily historical cleaning. The soaps supply the skin with valuable fatty acids and protect it from dehydration. For men also interesting, most hemp soaps are suitable by the creamy foam ideal for shaving.
Hemp or CBD shampoo is a real blessing, both for the scalp and the hair. The special shampoo soothes irritated scalp, moisturizes it and prevents dandruff formation. In addition, the manufacturers generally do not use sulfates and silicones. Sulphates are suspected to be responsible for brittle, dull hair and dry scalp. Silicones, on the other hand, settle permanently like a layer over the scalp, making it unable to breathe.
