Beauty products are a multi-million-dollar business. When you add the benefits of CBD to the mix, the market blossoms even more. Sales of this fantastic cannabinoid are expected to reach and surpass $20 billion by the year 2024.

What is this talk about CBD?

The cannabis Sativa plant provides the natural compound CBD. CBD, when extracted from the plant, will not deliver the high feeling associated with another well-known compound, THC. CBD oil also has excellent health and wellness qualities like vitamins A, D, E, along with essential fatty acids. The anti-inflammatory attributes make this an ideal addition to our daily beauty regime. As more products and information about the benefits of CBD are known, more people are looking towards CBD as a vitamin or wellness supplement.

CBD wax is derived from the hemp plant and when used as a beauty product provides a calm, soothing effect while hydrating the skin and removing unwanted hair. This beauty product is a stress-free way of removing that unwanted hair and ensuring the least irritation to the skin.  When using CBD on the skin, it reacts on the area that CBD oil was applied to. It is not going to penetrate deep enough to enter the bloodstream. The CBD will accumulate on the skins upper layers and be stored there. This is thought to be how a longer-term relief is noticed.

The effects of CBD

The effects and attributes from this compound are many. Some of the most notable include:

- Anti-inflammatory

- Painkilling benefits

- Scientists are now providing proof that topical CBD is beneficial in treating dry skin, like eczema and psoriasis.

- For those that do not have these types of skin problems, CBD is potent for enriching the skin's suppleness.

- Acne is a medical condition that crosses over to the beauty side when looking at how CBD can help skin and beauty regimes. Known for its-anti-inflammatory agents, CBD can get to the root of acne. The application of CBD to the affected area will reduce the swelling and pain associated with skin disorders.
