Shea butter is naturally rich in vitamins A, E and F. It offers UV protection (it is SPF6) and provides the skin with essential fatty acids and the nutrients necessary for collagen production. Due to its cinnamic acid and other natural properties, shea butter was anti-inflammatory. One compound in particular, lupeol cinnamate, was found to reduce skin inflammation and even potentially help avoid skin mutations. This also makes it beneficial for some people with acne.
Hemp Seed Oil
Hemp seed oil has a comedogenic rating of 0, meaning it does not clog pores at all, which makes it a great moisturiser for both oily and acne prone skin types. There are many essential fatty acids found in Hemp Seed Oil, however, the acids most similar to our skin’s lipids are Omega 3, 6 and 9. Omega 3 has great anti-inflammatory benefits that can therapeutically heal skin conditions. Omega 6 is essential for the healthy functioning of skin and can coat the outer layer. Omega 9, on the other hand, promotes healthy inflammation responses. This is the same as the oil produced in our own skin glands. Hemp seed oil can also help to treat skin inflammation and reduce the appearance of aging or inflamed skin. It’s perfect for nearly all skin conditions including psoriasis, acne, eczema, and dermatitis. It can also soothe dry, cracked and aging skin.
Oat oil is heralded for its ability to nourish and soothe maturing, sensitive and damaged skin, and it supports the elasticity of the skin. Oat oil possesses exceptional emolliency, and it penetrates the skin rapidly. Its fatty acid composition includes over 35% essential fatty acids, and it is a good source of antioxidants. Oats help in the recovery of the eczematous skin by moisturising, restoring the skin barrier, reducing itching, and regulating inflammation.
When applied to the skin, beeswax forms a protective barrier that helps protect it from environmental assaults, while also holding in moisture and reducing dryness. Unlike ingredients made from petroleum, however, beeswax doesn’t “suffocate” the skin, and won’t clog pores. As a natural, nontoxic byproduct, beeswax has aromatic, dermatological and therapeutic properties that make it excellent for skin care. It can stop skin irritation; it also has antiviral, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
Rather than ingesting CBD is il orally, which will affect the whole body and can take up to 2 hours or more to fully experience the effects, the topical application of cannabinoids allows them to be absorbed directly into the affected area for faster and more focused onset of effects.
Like all CBD products, CBD oil topicals are non-psychoactive, and since the cannabinoids in these topicals interact with CB2 receptors near the skin, activating the endocannabinoid system, they are never absorbed into the bloodstream.
There are a few different ways CBD could help regulate pain—by increasing your natural endocannabinoids, decreasing your inflammatory response, and desensitizing your pain receptors.
