CBD (Cannabidiol) products seem to be all the rage these days. Most notably used to treat chronic pain, inflammation, sleep disorders and anxiety, CBD is also an anti-seizure and tumor remedy. The benefits of CBD are endless and have more recently become a popular and innovative approach to healthy skin.
Studies show that CBD can help an array of skin conditions including, acne, eczema, and psoriasis. It can even treat the effects of skin allergies and possibly skin cancer. As reported in Healthline, a 2019 clinical trial put topical CBD to the test. All 20 participants had either psoriasis or atopic dermatitis and used topical CBD products. When the results were in, researchers concluded that topical CBD might just be a safe and effective treatment for common inflammatory skin conditions.
KERACELL CBD® – one brand of CBD cosmetics – is the only brand combining the restorative antioxidants of CBD and Multiple Human Cell Stem Cell Technology (MHCsc)™ for an advanced approach to skin care. Developed by scientists, the KERACELL beauty regimen can help reduce the signs of aging and treat many inflammatory skin conditions.
Still, you might be leary of yet another CBD product line. So, let’s dispel some of the misconceptions of CBD beauty products that might be holding you back.
Using CBD beauty products will make me high
Using CBD cosmetic products will not make you high. In most cosmetics, the trace amount of THC is less than 1 percent, if present at all. And unlike THC, pure CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid, meaning it won’t make you feel high.
All CBD beauty products are the same
KERACELL CBD products are THC-free, while some others contain trace amounts. Keracell CBD skin care products are also free of harmful chemicals used during CBD extraction from the hemp plant. Additionally, these products are all cultivated, created, and tested for purity and potency in the USA by an independent, certified third-party laboratory.
CBD products are full of impurities
Some brands cannot claim purity in their products. However, the scientists who produce KERACELL cosmetics keep their ingredients simple. All KERACELL products are formulated without using any of the following impurities: sulfates, parabens, petrolatum, propylene glycol, nanoparticles, phthalates, synthetic dyes, artificial colors, talc, gluten, animal derivatives, formaldehyde, formaldehyde donors, methylisothiazolinone (MIT), artificial fragrances, (DEA) diethanolamine, and other harmful impurities. Because KERACELL products are designed with a “less is more” philosophy, you can feel confident they are safe for your skin.
CBD cannot help with skin conditions created by autoimmune diseases
Using KERACELL CBD products can significantly improve the redness, itchiness, and soreness caused by several skin conditions, even those linked to autoimmune diseases. Studies indicate that the topical CBD may naturally increase anandamide levels, which has been known to decrease inflammation. While KERACELL does not treat the autoimmune disease itself, it is an effective topical treatment for skin issues associated with these ailments.
Cosmetics using CBD are not regulated
All cosmetics, not just those using CBD, are treated differently than food and dietary supplements when it comes to FDA regulation. The cosmetic industry is a self-monitoring entity, so the FDA must rely on consumer complaints to keep products safe. However, the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FDCA) and the Fair Packaging and Labeling Act (FPLA) mandate cosmetic safety and enforce proper labeling. In turn, most states have fallen in line and adopted similar laws and regulations. Ultimately, the FDA categorizes a cosmetic product as unsafe if it contains a harmful ingredient.
The benefits of CBD have recently become a popular and innovative approach to healthy skin. With trials and tests concluding that CBD can help an array of skin conditions, people now have an innovative way to deal with old, lingering problems. Studies also show the vital antioxidants of CBD can help reduce the signs of aging.
Hopefully, with the common myths and misconceptions surrounding CBD cosmetics debunked, more people can discover and enjoy the benefits of CBD skin care products.
