Various natural oils are used in skincare products to make them more potent and effective. From Jojoba to Rosehip, you may think that you’re already familiar with all of the skincare oil offerings out there. However, there’s one oil that has been picking up steam as a multitasking powerhouse for all things beauty and wellness…
Say hello to CBGärdn and Cannabis Sativa Oil.
What is Cannabis Sativa Oil?
Put simply, Cannabis Sativa Oil (also known as Hemp Seed Oil) is a natural oil with several benefits for the skin. It can help with many skin concerns, making it a high-demand ingredient worth adding to any skincare routine.
Where Does Cannabis Sativa Oil Come From?
To truly understand Cannabis Sativa Oil, it’s important to know where it comes from and how it works.
There are over 80 cannabinoid compounds that can be drawn from different parts of the Cannabis Sativa or Hemp plant. Each compound has a distinct purpose, benefit, and point of extraction. CBD Oil, for instance, comes from the plant’s leaves, stems, and flowers. Cannabis Sativa Oil, on the other hand, is derived from the Hemp plant’s seeds. It does not contain any THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), the psychoactive component of the Hemp plant.
What, then, are the skincare benefits of Cannabis Sativa Oil?
Hydration-Locking and Moisturizing Benefits
One of the most common benefits of using Hemp and CBD products for skin has to do with improving moisture and hydration. However, before we dive in, it’s important to establish the distinction between the two.
Moisture pertains to the skin’s oil content. When the skin is not well-moisturized, it becomes dry, meaning it lacks oil. Hydration, on the other hand, pertains to the water found in the skin. When the skin is not well-hydrated, it becomes dehydrated — therefore, it needs water to improve.
Cannabis Sativa Oil can improve the feeling of both of these skin concerns.
Soothes the Look of Acne Breakouts Properties
There is a misconception that if moisture pertains to oil, moisturizing with Hemp and CBD products for skin lead to excess oil. This is a valid and common concern, but the result is quite the opposite.
Hemp Seed Oil moisturizes the skin but manages to do so without clogging the pores. One of the reasons why Cannabis Sativa Oil is so well-loved is its ability to re-balance how oily the skin feels. Furthermore, depriving the skin of ample moisture can lead it to overcompensate and produce too much oil as a result.
By balancing out the skin’s oil content and keeping it moisturized, Cannabis Sativa Oil helps to minimize the look and frequency of acne breakouts.
Calms the Appearance
A series of studies that began in 1929 studied fatty acids and their visible effects. Through this study, it was discovered that the fatty acids Omega-3 and Omega-6 play a vital role in keeping the skin looking its best.
Gives the Skin a More Youthful Look
We discussed the soothing and moisturizing properties of Cannabis Sativa Oil above, but what does keeping the skin feeling moisturized and soothed entail for skin?
The answer: a lessened appearance of aging.
While inevitable, signs of aging are largely affected by the skin’s moisture content and its overall condition. As we age, the skin tends to dry out as a result of years of sun exposure, decreased production of natural oils, and slower cell turnover. Hormones play a vital part in the equation too — and this is especially true for women.
Taking this into account, Hemp and CBD products for skin are all the more necessary. Keeping the skin feeling calm, soothed, and well-moisturized can help slow down the visible signs of aging, like the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging.
Where to Find Safe and Effective Hemp and CBD Products for Skin
The question remains: How can we incorporate Hemp and CBD products for skin into our routines?
This is where we at CBGärdN come in.
Harnessing the multiple benefits of Cannabis Sativa Oil, CBGärdN serves up effective skincare solutions that target specific needs and concerns. We understand that as the largest organ of the body, the skin’s condition changes over time. The same can be said about the skin’s needs, which are volatile and ever-evolving.
As of writing, there are two collections on the CBGärdN roster:
CBGöld Basic Collection
The CBDGöld Basic Collection dials things down to the bare necessities. No frills are necessary; this collection is all about building a routine that works using simple yet effective Hemp and CBD products for the skin.
Here’s a look at the products found in the CBGöld Basic Collection:
CBGöld Cleansing Elixir Kit
Cleansing is the first step of any skincare routine. Whether you’re starting the morning or are ending a long day, cleansing is the one step of skincare that cannot be skipped.
Understanding the importance of cleansing, we at CBGärdN take the step over and beyond by including two standout products in our CBGöld Cleansing Elixir Kit:
- Formulated with Cannabis Sativa Oil and Glycerin, the CBGöld Facial Cleanser removes remaining residue and debris without overly stripping the skin.
- The CBGöld Facial Toner combines Hyaluronic Acid and Niacinamide in its formula to effectively bring a feeling of hydration back to the skin after cleansing.
To use, apply a small amount of the CBGöld Facial Cleanser to damp skin. Massage it into the skin, working it into a lather and moving in circular motions with your fingertips. Rinse it off with warm water and pat the skin dry before applying the CBGöld Facial Toner. Use a cotton ball, cotton pad, or pat into the skin with your fingers, making sure to avoid the eye area.
CBGöld Microexfoliant Plus
Sometimes, cleansing alone is not enough. Deep-seated impurities, stubborn bacteria, and an uneven-feeling skin texture can be better addressed with a little exfoliation.
The CBGöld Microexfoliant Plus is a great complement to the Cleansing Elixir Kit. The product comes in a gel formula that is both lightweight and gentle on the skin. With Cannabis Sativa Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate (a form of Vitamin E), and Glycerin, this exfoliant lifts dead skin cells and impurities without damaging the skin. However, it is important to exfoliate only once or twice a week.
To work the CBGöld Microexfoliant Plus into your routine, simply apply a small amount onto the face after cleansing. Massage in circular motions for 30 minutes, then rinse off with cool water.
CBDGöld Anti-Wrinkle Confidence Solution
As the name suggests, the CBDGöld Anti-Wrinkle Confidence Solution minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles to give you an even greater sense of self-confidence. While there is no escaping the inevitability of aging, including this product in your rotation can help make the visible signs less prominent.
Apart from our signature Cannabis Sativa Oil, several ingredients make this solution one of the best hemp and CBD products for the skin:
- Retinyl Palmitate, also known as the gentler alternative to Retinol, which slows down the appearance of aging;
- Sodium Hyaluronate, which moisturizes the skin and fights the look of inflammation;
- Sweet Almond Oil, which reduces the feeling of irritation and fades the look of scars
The CBDGöld Anti-Wrinkle Confidence Solution is also packaged in a luxurious, non-surgical syringe. This makes targeting lines and hard-to-reach areas more convenient.
To use, simply place the tip of the syringe onto the wrinkle or fine line you want to target. Firmly press the bottom of the applicator to release the product. Tap the formula into your skin lightly to promote absorption.
CBDGöld Eye Serum Concentrate
The skin needs care all over, but especially in delicate areas, like around the eyes. Because the eye area is thinner and produces less oil than the rest of the face, it’s important to keep it well-moisturized.
The CBDGöld Eye Serum Concentrate addresses this with a blend of Vitamin C and Green Tea Extract. Use this product as a follow-up to the CBDGöld Anti-Wrinkle Confidence Solution by pumping the serum onto your ring finger. Gently pat the product onto the skin surrounding the eyes.
CBGöld Bio-Restorative Crème
If you’re searching for a rich yet lightweight moisturizer that can layer well under SPF or makeup, look no further. The CBGöld Bio-Restorative Crème does just that, all while delivering the skin-enhancing properties of Cannabis Sativa Oil.
In addition to our star ingredient, there are a few components in this product’s formula worth taking notice of:
- Shea Butter
- Cetearyl Alcohol
- Hydrogenated Sunflower Seed Oil
CBGöld Night Renewing Crème
Highlighting Cannabis Sativa Oil’s ability to keep the skin feeling well-hydrated and moisturized, the CBGöld Night Renewing Crème delivers a potent punch of goodness to keep the skin feeling in tip-top condition overnight.
Like the CBGöld Bio-Restorative Crème, this product has Shea Butter, Cetearyl Alcohol, and Hydrogenated Sunflower Seed Oil, albeit in a richer formula. To use, simply take a small amount of product and massage it into the face and neck nightly.
The Hemp and CBD products for skin under the CBGöld Basic Collection can be purchased individually here.
CBDGöld Collection Kit
The CBDGöld Collection is a three-piece kit containing skin-loving, texture-improving products — all enriched with Cannabis Sativa Oil, of course. In this kit, you’ll find the following Hemp and CBD products for skin:
- CBDGöld Imperial Transforming Masque – a formula that reduces the visible signs of aging. With a cocktail of organic honey, seaweed, and Cannabis Sativa Oil, this mask leaves the skin looking more radiant in just ten minutes.
- CBDGöld Vitamin C Antioxidant Élixir – a follow-up to the Imperial Transforming Masque, this elixir combines Vitamins A, C, and E to reduce the look of redness and balance out the feel of the skin tone.
- CBDGöld Velvet Silk Crème – the final step in the CBDGöld routine, this moisturizing cream features a rich blend of vitamins and natural extracts to bind moisture to the skin all day long.
