CBD, the new anti-aging

Benefits of CBD Based Anti-Aging Products vs. Chemical Ones

Recent discoveries on the miracle effects of the cannabis plant have propelled it into the limelight. With over 100 different compounds, each with their own unique valuable traits, one particular compound has garnered more attention.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is being infused in a wide variety of products including skin care and anti-aging solutions.

CBD is being used in anti-aging products because of its characteristics. CBD works well in the human body because of its ability to recreate endocannabinoids, which regulates stress and makes skin appear more glowing and youthful.

CBD also has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that are essential to improve the skin particularly for conditions like eczema and acne. And since it is found in nature and not produced synthetically in a lab, it can be used for almost all types of skins without the fear of an adverse reaction.

On the other hand, using synthetically made and chemical based anti-aging products are harmful to the skin and may have the opposite effect than what we desired.

Anti-aging products contain hydroxyl acids that increase the permeability of the skin and allow the formula to pass through. This eliminates the protective layer of the skin which prevents UV light from penetrating and helps prevent skin cancer and other diseases. Furthermore, Limonene, which is also commonly found in most anti-aging products, is an irritant and carcinogen.

The list of drawbacks for chemically based anti-aging products is endless. On the other hand, the list of benefits of CBD-infused ones is infinite. The choice is simple: natural or manmade.
