CBD for skin care – Does It Work?

It all depends! Let’s have a look at the facts, and see how Melanopeel has incorporated the factual science into CBD skin care that’s even more effective.

CBD has been taking the health industry by storm because of its therapeutic benefits. In particular, it shows positive effects on skin-related problems.

Cannabidiol, also called CBD, is a natural compound found in hemp and marijuana or cannabis plants. CBD is one of the two main active chemicals in cannabis plants used for their therapeutic benefits, the other one being tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

CBD in skin care

CBD skincare products are not hazardous to the skin or have negative side effects. Instead, they help nourish the skin, enhance a person’s looks, and help treat skin conditions. 

Clinical studies suggest that CBD skincare products can effectively deal with skin disorders, including pruritus, eczema, psoriasis, alopecia, acne, hirsutism, and other inflammatory skin conditions. 

The main reason why CBD has therapeutic effects is that it has anti-oxidative and anti-inflammatory properties. In addition to these properties, CBD comes with many vitamins and minerals healthy for the body and skin, including: 

  • Omega-3 fatty acids
  • Iron
  • Calcium
  • Vitamin C
  • Arginine
  • Magnesium
  • Gamma linolenic acid
  • B vitamins

Not all CBD contains THC

A fact that few people know is that most CBD skin care has zero or negligible amounts of the phycho-active THC. Where the skin is concerned, it is the binding of the CBD molecules to CB1 & CB2 receptors that make the skin magic. Your skin still gets the benefits of plant cannabinoids, plant terpenes, flavonoids, vitamins, minerals, and plant proteins without the need for THC.

CBD skin receptors

The human body has cannabinoid or CBD receptors, and some of them, called cutaneous ionotropic cannabinoid receptors, are found in the skin. Receptors are either grouped together, forming a sense organ, as in the case of the ear or the eye, or scattered like those of the skin.  

Skin cells that can respond to cannabinoids

The skin cannabinoid receptors particularly perform the dermal functions related to the prevention of skin conditions, epidermal homeostasis, pain perception, and itch perception.

How our CBD skin care benefits your skin (& hair):

CBD effects on cellular structures can be dose-dependent, with some effects seen at low doses, and opposite effects at higher doses.

Interaction of exogenously applied CBD oil with your CB1 & CB2 receptors are highly complex, and not all are fully understood. The effects on cellular structures can also be dose-dependent, with some effects seen at low doses, and opposite effects at higher doses. Based on what we do know in studies, well formulated CBD topical preparations can help the following skin conditions:

Skin ConditionHow it helps
AcneReduce inflammation & mildly antibacterial. Rebalances skin microbiome.
Oily skin Reduce activity of sebaceous glands.
HyperpigmentationPossible mild inhibition of melanin production, but results inconclusive.
Sun-damageBarrier repair & reduces oxidative stress on the skin resulting in better protected skin.
EczemaReduce itch & inflammation. Improve skin barrier function.
PsoriasisAnti-inflammatory, and can reduce keratinocyte proliferation of psoriatic plaques.
RosaceaReduces redness and inflammation.
AlopeciaPromotion of hair growth by increasing capillary nourishment around failing follicles, and stimulation of hair follicles at lower CBD doses.
HirsutismReduce hair growth in susceptible hair follicles expressing genes for abnormal hair growth at higher CBD doses.
Aging skinAdds hydration and regulates fibroblast cells for collagen production.
