CBD is short for cannabidiol, one of over 85 unique compounds found in the hemp plant, known as cannabinoids.
Hemp is part of the cannabis sativa L. species, but hemp, and the CBD oil from it, has no psychoactive properties of other cannabis species — meaning you get all the health benefits with no high or side effects.
At the root of this CBD infused line called Color Up Therapeutics, is the belief that when the body finds homeostasis -balance- it benefits not only our overall well-being, but every organ within the body. Skin conditions reflect a body that is in some way out of balance and the endocannabinoid system or ECS (our bodies actually produce cannabinoids!). The cannabidiol (CBD) in Color Up Therapeutics works with the ECS system to correct imbalances, including those within the skin.
BENEFITS OF CBD FACIAL AND SKINCARE
Anti-aging – CBD protects the skin from free radicals, like UV rays, smoke, and environmental pollutants, which is critical in fighting the effects of aging.
Antioxidant – CBD provides powerful Vitamin C, E, A, & omega 3 fatty acid, and causes a change in skin patterns, such as reduction in hyperpigmentation.
Acne -CBD provides skin with healthy fatty acids, which are often found to be lacking in people with acne.
Anti-inflammatory Properties of CBD also control the effects of acne and other skin conditions because the skin around the area is intensely inflamed and many of these ailments arise from chronic inflammation.
Moisturizing - Cannabinoid oil is full of omega 3 and 6 fatty acids which makes it an effective moisturizer.
Anti-microbial – CBD will inhibit the growth of bacteria that cause skin infections.
Antibacterial– CBD has antibacterial properties which treat infection (a major contributor to acne).
Antifungal – CBD will prevent the cell membranes of fungi from forming properly, causing fungal death.
