The cannabis skin-care universe is growing by leaps and bounds as long-established companies including the Body Shop and Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps expand their product lines, while newcomers hustle to make their mark in this budding beauty segment.
Many of these products include hemp seed oil, which has been used in folk remedies for centuries and is said to ease dry skin, reduce inflammation and alleviate skin issues such as eczema.
Hemp oil comes from a variety of the cannabis sativa plant that is grown for industrial use, not drug use. The hemp strains that are grown for oil production have a minuscule percentage of psychoactive compounds; after the seeds are processed that level is reduced to zero.
A small number of beauty products on the market include CBD (cannabidiol), a non-psychoactive compound in cannabis that is believed to have a variety of medical uses (easing anxiety and soothing irritated skin, among other things) and does not cause a marijuana high.
If you’re hoping to add a new product to your daily routine, here’s a sampling of cannabis-related makeup and hair and skin offerings worth a look.
