CBD Skincare with CBD body butter

The dermatology and cosmetic industry is the latest venture CBD has embarked on. A good number of beauty brands have now joined the bandwagon of producing and marketing CBD-based products. They are advocating these products and also promising numerous valuable effects ranging from moisturisers, serums, anti-aging creams, acne treatments, and many more.

The beauty industry’s obsession with CBD (short for cannabidiol) – isn’t slowing down. Though none of these claims about CDA assisting skincare have been proven or supported by FDA till now; these claims can’t be totally denied as some research work and a significant number of population is acknowledging the positive effects of these products.

Thus, CBD - based products are winning over legal issues or FDA approval due to a huge public vote and support.

Different CBD-based skincare products available in the market include

  • Cosmetic soaps
  • Oils
  • Serums
  • Moisturisers
  • Lotions
  • Sun-screens
  • Anti- acne, Anti-ageing creams, and whatnot.

All these products are just for external use and are not intended to diagnose, treat, or prevent any disease.

What skin benefits should we expect from CBD?

  • Get rid of acne with CBD

Acne are the most common, irritating, unwanted, and untimely guests bothering the beauty world for ages. They are just a clogged pore due to an overactive sebaceous gland with an underlying hormonal cause but treating hormonally can have serious adverse effects.

Instead, topical CBD provides a harmless rescue. By virtue of its anti-inflammatory properties and ability to reduce sebum production, CBD based products are successfully proving themselves as a boon to the beauty industry. 

  • Deny aging with CBD

Antioxidant properties of CBD in combination with jojoba oil can do miracles to the aging skin. Together they promote the synthesis of COLLAGEN-the ‘must-have’ protein for young, elastic, fresh skin. They also fight against oxidative stress and corresponding damages and help in diminishing the signs of aging like wrinkles, saggy skin, ruddy skin tone, etc.

  • Perfect antidote to a busy day

A nice bath with soap infused with CBD and essential oils not only relaxes but also calms down the tired skin and brain after a long exhausting day. Just give it a try, you won’t regret it.

  • Bye Bye sore muscles, aches, and painful heels

Topical application of balms containing high quality CBD along with essential oils removes the soreness and tiredness of the body within minutes. They are indispensable for post-party, post-gym, high heel events, hiking, etc. for immediate relaxation.

  • Glowing, healthy skin in minutes. What a bliss

    Just try a facemask with high-quality CBD and we bet you will fall in love with yourself. All credit to its anti-oxidant and hydrating effects.

    • Soft buttery hands

      Regular application of hemp oil-based moisturisers can give you super silky skin owing to the super soothing and hydrating effects of hemp seed oil rich in omega3 and omega 6 fatty acids. With winters approaching, it’s the right time to pamper your dry skin with something so new and effective, isn't it?

      • Sleeping beauty effect

        Various roller-ball applicators or massaging creams or night creams rich in CBD -oils are available in the market. Infusion of CBD into the skin via these products promote relaxation and induce sound sleep which itself is a key to beautiful, healthy, refreshed skin.

        • Befitting reply to chronic conditions like arthritis:

          CBD-based balms or lotions address the characteristic pain and inflammation by directly acting over the affected site.

          • CBD infused pain relief and relaxation patches showing promising results are also present in the market.

             

            What is CBD Body butter?

            CBD body butters are CBD infused moisturisers containing thick butter or multiple butters in oil or combination of oils. They are thicker and heavier than lotions and extremely prompt in treating dry skin.

            Procedure: A (Using hemp buds)

            Step 1: Mix Cocoa butter and just dried Hemp in a ratio of 1lbs:1 oz

            Step 2: Heat the mixture in a double boiler until the cocoa butter melts.

            Step 3: Submerge the entire hemp completely in molten butter.

            Step 4: Allow the mixture to rest for 2 hours so that the hemp CBD is properly infused with the cocoa butter.

            Step 5: Remove the plant remnants from the mixture with the help of a strainer.

            Step 6: Allow the strained butter to cool and solidify in a cool dark place for a day or in a refrigerator for a few hours. This forms the basic body butter.

            Step 7: As the cocoa butter is quite solid after cooling, it can be

            • Either broken down to pieces and stored. In this case, each time the butter pieces should be rubbed in between palms to melt it before applying (its melting point is just below normal body temperature)
            • Grated with a grater and stored.
            • Coconut oil is added to attain the required consistency.

              For this coconut oil and body butter are mixed in 1:1 ratio and then melted and mixed directly before cooling or steps 2, 3, and 5 can be repeated again; this time with coconut oil instead of hemp.

              • Essential oils and aromatic oils can be added before the solidification process.

                 

                Procedure: B (Using CBD powder)

                Step 1: Melt 1 cup shea and cocoa butter in a double boiler.

                Step 2: Once the butter is melted, add CBD powder and stir till it completely dissolves.

                Step 3: Add other oils (1cup) gradually and keep stirring.

                Step 4: Add Goat’s milk, arrowroot/corn starch. Keep mixing.

                Step 5: Add the aromatic agents.

                Step 6: After all components are incorporated nicely, stop the gas, and allow the mixture to cool and solidify.

                Step 7: Whip the solid butter with an electric whisk or blender, till it turns fluffy and attains the desired texture. Store in air-tight containers.

                          • Remedy for Pain

                           

                          Why CBD body butter is a preferred over topical CBD oil/lotion?

                          • Thick butter stays longer on the skin providing enough time for the CBD to get absorbed.
                          • CBD is lipid-soluble, not water-soluble. As a result, cannabinoids like CBD must cling to lipid molecules to be delivered into the body.

                           

                          Why CBD body butter should be a part of Your Skin Care Routine?

                          • As it incorporates the positive effects of CBD, butter, and all essential oils efficiently.
                          • Being topical, it acts directly on the affected site.
                          • Being topical it is directly absorbed without entering the bloodstream ensuring rapid CBD delivery.
                          • Addition of butter further increases the absorption rate as compared to other topical CBD products.
