Holland & Barrett launch first high-street range of CBD skincare
Cannabidiol (CBD) is the newest and hottest ingredient to hit the beauty world, and for a good reason. It's said to treat a whole range of ailments, from acne and dermatitis to anxiety and sleep issues.
If you're wondering whether you're legally allowed to be smothering marijuana over your face then don't stress, CBD is the non-psychoactive component of the plant. Perfectly legal and won't get you high from smelling it.
Other luxe brands like MGC Derma were quick to launch creams featuring the new 'miracle' ingredient, but Holland & Barrett has just pipped it to claim the title of the first high-street retailer to create its very own affordable range of CBD-infused products.
The skincare collection, which is suitable for vegans and vegetarians, is made up of a Serum, £19.99 , Day Cream, £14.99 , Night Cream, £14.99 , and two varying strengths of Muscle Balm, from £14.99 , and launched in shops and online today.
The products claim to tackle skin complaints like dryness, oiliness and aching muscles, with the antioxidant-rich hemp seed extract and cannabidiol.
These two work together to help the skin retain water, regulate sebum production and fight free radicals (to slow down the signs of ageing).
It seems the products have launched at the right time as well, as this green ingredient has gained some celeb fans like Alessandra Ambrosio and Gwyneth Paltrow.
Apparently 17,000 posts using the #CBDbeauty hashtag have been shared on Instagram , as well.
All of the CBD-infused skincare products you need to invest in
CBD-infused skincare is having a moment and plenty of celebrities including Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Aniston and Victoria's Secret model Alessandra Ambrosio have raved about it. But what exactly is it?
What is CBD oil and CBD skincare?
CBD skincare is essentially skincare that's infused with CBD (short for cannabidiol).
