Does CBD have a place in luxury skincare?

These days, you can find CBD products everywhere on the market. From tinctures and oils all the way to luxury skincare products, you really can find it in anything! CBD (cannabidoil) is a single compound found in cannabis. However, you should remember that it isn’t the same as THC but it has been marketed as a compound that can provide relief for anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. But… What does it mean for luxury skincare products?


Are CBD products popular?

CBD and CBD-infused products are incredibly popular globally and CBD is being searched for 1.8 million times on average each month. The term CBD skincare is being searched 1.4k times a month too. There are literally hundreds of different products available in the UK market with many of them being luxury skincare products. You can find CBD products in all different price ranges, from some under £10 to products that cost £100s. 


Is using CBD in beauty products legal?

Yeah, using CBD in beauty products is legal. It is important to remember that ‘unlike THC, pure CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid, meaning it doesn’t make you feel high’ as stated by ForbesSome of the most popular CBD products seem to be oils, balms, salves and creams and even The Inkey List, one of the companies that we feature in our myhi luxury skincare boxes, sell their own Hemp Oil Moisturiser


What does it do?

So they’re popular, but do they actually do anything? And what are the useful qualities of CBD oil in our skincare? Is it just a fad? Apparently, no. 

Eleni Kiomouritzi, owner of EleniLondon (a skin health centre that offers services such as CBD oil facials as well as sell their own CBD-infused products) claims that she has hundreds of very happy clients that are using it religiously. She also claims that CBD is ‘a very strong anti-inflammatory and it helps reduce swelling, calms redness and relieves many skin conditions including acne, eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis’. As well as these amazing qualities, Eleni believes that it can be used as an incredible anti-aging product due to it balancing sebum production.
