Why CBD in Skincare?
CBD of London aim to educate and inform – As an alternative skincare company pioneering the CBD molecule, we provide the latest information and publicly available research to enable our customers to make up their own minds.
CBD is high in antioxidants, alongside Vitamin C, E, A, or Omega 3 fatty acids, which are all present in hemp, making it a good source for essential anti-ageing compounds. In order to achieve younger looking skin we have to protect from free radicals, UV rays, smoke and environmental pollutants.
Often overlooked, when it comes to healthy skin and hair a crucial factor is simple nutrition. As with any other part of the body, skin and hair need the right vitamins and minerals for peak function. Besides CBD, hemp also includes other essential nutrients including vitamins, minerals, proteins and fatty acids.
Vitamin C and E help protect hair from broken or split ends and act to protect from UV damage. They also keep free radicals from damaging collagen and elastin which give skin its tight and bouncy appearance.
Vitamin A aids development of healthy looking skin as they play a direct role in skin repair. A lack of these vitamins result in dry, flaky skin. Vitamin A is also widely accepted for its role in skin cell growth, inhibiting oil production and promoting skin cell differentiation.
