CBD: The Botanical Ingredient Every Formulator Needs

CBD is an essential active ingredient in many of our private label skincare formulations. An ingredient with impressive results and a list of skin benefits, in addition to CBD being popular in skincare, it's a very versatile active ingredient in the wellness industry. CBD is one of more than 100 identified cannabinoids in the cannabis plant. Unlike its sister compound, THC, CBD will not make you feel high. In this blog, our resident esthetician shares knowledge about CBD in skincare and three reasons why you should formulate with CBD.

What Benefits Does CBD Provide For The Skin?

Our resident esthetician explains how CBD is an incredibly effective ingredient in skincare due to it being a powerful antioxidant and providing calming and soothing benefits to the skin. CBD also contains other active components such as B-complex vitamins, riboflavin, niacin, and thiamine. Some of our our private label skincare products formulated with CBD include: 

  • CBD Fem Balm 

  • CBD Plus Gel

  • CBD Plus Cream

  • CBD Bath Salts

  • CBD and Uber-C Brave New World Eye Cream 

Three Reasons Why You Should Formulate With CBD

There are many reasons to consider using CBD in your skincare brand. CBD is an incredibly fascinating ingredient and provides promising skin benefits. "Although it might seem like a trend, I think we will only see more and more use of these types of phytocannabinoids in skincare and wellness formulations in the years to come," says our resident esthetician. Here are our top reasons to formulate with CBD in your skincare business:

  1. It has a soothing effect on the skin.

  2. It plumps and softens the appearance of the skin.

  3. It encourages a firm and youthful looking complexion.

Something to consider when formulating with CBD is to ask yourself why you are choosing to work with CBD and will it make sense in your product and brand? Are you adding a CBD product to your line just because it's a trend or because you know it's a powerful ingredient that will add value to your product line. Many people are still uneducated about CBD and cannabinoids in general, so educating your customers about the skin benefits of CBD should be a priority when launching a product. "In the future, I think we will see more CBD in haircare, skincare, and makeup," says our resident esthetician. As a skincare business owner, you have to ask yourself if CBD makes sense in the product you want to create. We recommend doing your research before launching your CBD skincare product, research where the CBD is sourced from, and educate your customers on the benefits.
