CBD oil (cannabis oil): A magical compound for beauty

CBD oil (cannabis oil): A magical compound for beauty
We are talking about a product that has left even medical experts speechless. Its use has been of great help to a large number of people. Both for its almost infinite application possibilities, as well as for its wonderful results.

What do experts say about CBD?

Although CBD is certainly generating buzz in the beauty industry, clinically the science behind it remains debated. “Claims regarding the therapeutic effects of CBD are widespread and used almost indiscriminately: from selling it as a neuroprotective antioxidant or for having prophylactic properties to helping with anxiety and relieving symptoms of ADHD, epilepsy and chronic pain,” says Dr. Michalis Kyratsous, consultant psychiatry at South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust. “Most of these uses are not supported by robust clinical evidence. There is a lot of pre-clinical scientific evidence on the benefits of CBD, but this does not justify the way it is marketed, if it is even intended to be analyzed.”

So the benefits of CBD are still largely an advertising resource. The FDA has gone so far as to send warning letters to some companies for going “too far” with the health properties of CBD still unapproved, except for epilepsy. In June 2018, the US FDA approved Epidiolex when clinical trials found that it reduced seizures in children with two severe and rare varieties of epilepsy.

“There is also evidence that CBD may be an effective treatment for other medical conditions,” the World Health Organization reported last year. “However, this line of research is considerably less advanced than that of epilepsy treatment. For most cases there is only pre-clinical testing, while in others there is a combination of pre-clinical testing and limited clinical testing.” The WHO confirms the range of medical problems in which CBD is managed as “diverse, consistent with its neuroprotective, antiepileptic, hypoxia-ischemia, anxiolytic, antipsychotic, analgesic, anti-asthma and antitumor properties.”

Many CBD brands are waiting for the required research to support what they already claim. “Ultimately, there has not been enough research to consider it medically proven or to say with certainty that these products cure,” says Irin Maini, co-founder of Somnio CBD, a brand whose products go straight from the seed to our shelves. “However, you just have to take a look at the testimonials from the consumers themselves. You can see millions of testimonials online, in health and wellness stores, and locally with friends and family, if you want to know how [CBD] has helped them with a number of common ailments.”

What are the benefits of CBD for skin care and how do they work?

“Our skin, as one of our largest organs, constantly produces and releases endocannabinoids, depending on its health and needs at the time,” says Berliner Floriane von der Forst, co-founder of The Chillery – a website she launched in March 2019 together with Marisa Schwab, native of Los Angeles, specializing in premium CBD wellness products. “Endocannabinoid receptors (CB1 and CB2, as noted above), are present in basically all skin cells. CBD has anti-inflammatory properties and has been classified as a powerful antioxidant that helps reduce the toxins that we accumulate on the surface of the skin, especially due to external factors such as urban air or UVA rays,” explains von der Forst. Thus, topical skin care – creams, masks, oils and lotions – interact directly with these ECS receptors, helping to improve problems such as acne or eczema, or to calm inflamed skin. “Combined with other effective plant ingredients, the results can be strengthened even further,” adds von der Forst.

David Tyrrell, global beauty and facial care analyst at Mintel, predicts that CBD will become a key product in North America in the coming years. “The legalization of hemp in the US is going to produce a flood of independent online brands [e.g. e.g. CBD retailer, Standard Dose], but consumers will demand greater transparency regarding ingredients”
