Hemp & CBD cosmetics - what is the difference?

Hemp & CBD cosmetics - what is the difference?

  • Overview
  • CBD skincare
  • Hemp skincare
  • Their combination

Hemp and CBD cosmetics are not the same things, even though they are often mentioned or advertised together.

Hemp beauty products contain hemp seed oil which is made from hemp seeds and does not contain any traceable amounts of cannabinoids, such as CBD. Instead, it is full of beneficial vitamins and essential fatty acids (omega-6, omega-3 and omega-9) responsible for the unique beautifying properties hemp products provide.

CBD, on the other hand, is a cannabinoid extracted from fully grown hemp plants, not seeds. It is known for its potential anti-inflammatory properties and many other health benefits that scientists are still learning about.

A lot of brands combine CBD and hemp in their cosmetics. While some people will benefit from beauty products that unite these two superpowers, others might do much better with hemp-based skincare routines combined with CBD supplements.

Only you will be able to tell what works best for you.

CBD skincare

Did you know that skin, just like any other organ in the human body, has its own endocannabinoid receptors?

These receptors are a part of the endocannabinoid system. This system plays a vital role in various processes in our bodies, including immune responses. CBD has the ability to bind with these receptors and encourage anti-inflammatory behavior. It’s important because inflammation is often the underlying reason for various skin conditions, such as atopic dermatitis or psoriasis.

Further studies on this active ingredient still need to be done to provide conclusive scientific evidence on the effects of CBD. Research results published in the US National Center for Biotechnology Information show that CBD when used in the form of a topical cream (cream, body lotion, ...) or in other forms (CBD drops, edibles, chewable tablets, sublingual tablets, etc.) may help control and relieve symptoms of skin inflammation.

CBD might also help reduce oil production in the skin, which is often a reason for excessive breakouts. However, contrary to many mainstream anti-acne cosmetics, CBD does so without causing the skin to dry out.

According to studies cited in Happi - the leading personal care products journals, CBD can also help regulate excess oil production in the skin - one of the main reasons for acnes. However, unlike many conventional acne treatment products, CBD does not make the skin dry after a period of use.

Hemp skincare

Hemp seed oil is known for its unique combination of high amounts of healthy ingredients. Vitamin E and fatty acids like Omega 3 and 6 are just a few reasons why hemp cosmetics are effective.

Their antioxidant properties make hemp creams an excellent choice for people looking to improve the noticeable effects of oxidative stress and aging.

Hemp cosmetics can do what many other cosmetics cannot - they can moisturize even the driest of skin without blocking any pores. This is great news for people with skin prone to breakouts, who struggle with finding a light-textured moisturizer that works.

There have been many famous cosmetic brands that combine CBD and hemp oil in their cosmetic formulations. Users will benefit from using skin care products that fuse both of these ingredients. Especially those who have problems with atopic dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis,... In addition, the product is also suitable for acne-prone skin due to the anti-inflammatory effect and reducing sebum secretion properties that CBD can bring.

CBD cosmetic products on the market mostly use CBD isolate (only CBD), and of course if you find a CBD cosmetic product line with CBD broad spectrum type, in addition to cannabidiol, there are other cannabinoids such as: CBG, CBN, CBDA..., then surely, that product will have more medical value thanks to the entourage effect. You can refer to HempSapa's CBD cosmetic line, which contains CBD Broad Spectrum in formulation.
