Adding CBD to this product makes it an effective anti-inflammatory for the entire body. The natural anti-inflammatory properties are due to the cannabinoids found in hemp oil. This ingredient has been shown to reduce swelling, redness, and pain associated with conditions like eczema, psoriasis, acne, and minor cuts and burns from overexposure to the sun or windburns from cold-weather activities such as skiing or snowboarding.

The Benefits Of CBD Body Butter:

There are many benefits to using CBD body butter, including:

Hydration

Hydrating your skin can help prevent wrinkles and other signs of aging. It will also help keep your skin looking youthful and healthy. In addition, hydrated skin heals faster after an injury or surgery, reducing scarring.

Antioxidants

Antioxidants help protect our bodies from free radicals, unstable molecules that damage cells in our bodies. When free radicals attack cells, they cause inflammation and damage tissue over time leading to aging effects such as wrinkles and fine lines on the face or neck area. Cream (2020) reported that CBD body butter contains antioxidants that help fight against free radicals. The skin stays healthy for longer periods without having to resort to fillers or plastic surgery options for younger-looking skin again.

Wondering How This Works? Here Is How.

During normal functioning, skin cells produce energy, creating a toxic molecule that was early mentioned as free radicals as a waste product. Environmental agents such as smoke, fog, and dust cause stress to the skin, known as free radicals.

According to Di Meo et al. (2020), these free radicals contain unpaired electrons. The electrons try to pair with other electrons since they are negatively charged. It is crucial to note that if an electron struggles to pair itself, it pulls other negative electrons, leading to a condition known as the domino effect. The body responds by producing its antioxidants to stabilize the free radicals to prevent them from damaging our skin. If the free radicals exceed the antioxidant, it creates a situation known as oxidative stress. Continuous rubbing of the free radicals on the cells leads to oxidative damage, which is why inflammation and aging occur. 

Adding CBD to this product makes it an effective anti-inflammatory for the entire body. The natural anti-inflammatory properties are due to the cannabinoids found in hemp oil. This ingredient has been shown to reduce swelling, redness, and pain associated with conditions like eczema, psoriasis, acne, and minor cuts and burns from overexposure to the sun or windburns from cold-weather activities such as skiing or snowboarding.

 The CBD contains antioxidants that provide free negative charges to the lone electrons, hence creating a pair preventing electron theft and leading to healthy molecules.

However, more studies are needed to see if CBD or other chemical agents in the cannabis plant directly improve skin quality and have other health benefits.

CBD is better for the skin in these ways:

Moisturizer

According to Mist (2003), CBD contains fatty acids that are easily absorbed into the skin and are very moisturizing. Hemp seed oil is one of the best natural moisturizers available. It helps retain moisture in the skin, which keeps it looking soft, supple, and youthful. The hemp seed oil also has anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce itching and redness.

Enhancing Complexion

Cannabidiol-rich products can soothe red and irritated skin, overly improving the skin's complexion. Huestis (2007) found that the transdermal permeability of the CBD Since its 10-fold higher than THC. However, the creation of transdermal permeable CBD butter can be risky since it can be absorbed into the bloodstream and cause psychoactive effects. Furthermore, CBD reduces skin inflammation, improving skin complexion.

Fungal Infection

The environmental impact, such as moist and warm skin and poor hygiene, is a breeding ground for fungi. Fungi detract from the skin, making it look wrinkled and dry.

According to Popescu et al.  (2021), CBD has shown to have some anti-fungal properties: cannabichromene (CBC) and cannabigerol (CBG). On the other hand, boosts the overall effect of caryophyllene oxide, a potent antifungal that does prevent fungal growth in humans.

Gugala et al.  (2017) showed that CBD contains anti-bacterial properties that inhibit the growth of staphylococcus aureus, which is responsible for causing skin infection.

 An Increase In Demand For Skincare Products

Since the inception and legalization of the use of CBD products, there has been an increase in the number of companies offering this service. Therefore, it is necessary to be aware of the type of product you buy in the market. Dang (2018) reported that organic cosmetics and personal products are expected to grow substantially over the years with an increment of 109.8 billion dollars by 20022. Governments in the U.K and US have regulated the use of synthetic ingredients in the cosmetics

Conclusion

CBD is good for the skin because it reduces inflammation. It also has anti-aging properties and helps fight skin conditions such as eczema and acne. However, it is important to consult a medical expert before using any CBD products to determine their suitability, the appropriate dosage, and the possible side effects.
