Importance of Healthy Skin
Our skin is our best friend. It’s the largest organ in the body and is the first line of defence against bugs and bacteria which attack us daily. That’s why our Love CBD Balm can be a very useful aid in your skincare and protection regime.
Sebum is produced by glands attached to hair follicles and lubricates the hair and skin to stop it drying out. As we hit puberty (we all know what that’s like!) the hormones racing around our bodies can make us produce excess sebum which blocks our hair follicles and can cause black heads and spots.
What makes our Love CBD Balm so special?
So, let’s look at the ingredients in our Love CBD Balm and explain how they can help your skin look healthier and happier. By far the most significant ingredient is cannabidiol (CBD). Unlike the majority of CBD-based cosmetic products that use CBD isolate, our Love CBD Balm uses a broad-spectrum extract that contains a range of other beneficial cannabis compounds like terpenes, flavonoids, and other minor cannabinoids.
Cannabidiol has been shown to have anti-sebum and anti-microbial properties. The anti-sebum property is important because it’s the overproduction of sebum that can cause problems for the skin. The cannabidiol in our Love CBD Balm can help control the production of sebum, which helps keep our pores clear and reduces the chances of having ‘problem’ skin and outbreaks. Cannabidiol also has anti-oxidant and conditioning properties. Anti-oxidants are important because they can slow cell damage caused by the waste products our cells produce. If we didn’t get rid of the waste, it can lead to a variety of issues, including as shown earlier, blocked pores. Cannabidiol is also good for conditioning the skin, which is very important because the skin is our first line of defense against damage from the sun and from bacteria which may try to get into our bodies.
