CBD for your skin, VoN CBD Balm.
CBD is the acronym for cannabidiol and, without doubt, is the best food supplement for general wellbeing. Almost everyone is familiar with CBD oil; however, fewer people know how beneficial is CBD for our skin. Its popularity keeps increasing, and people keep praising CBD skin products worldwide.
The skin is the largest organ in our bodies, and it works as a defence from the outside world. Our skin is protecting us from many toxins and impurities we encounter every day. This role can be exhausting; thankfully, CBD can help to provide support.
CBD has a balancing action and not inhibitory. Many of the substances used to treat skin problems include ingredients that inhibiting and mask some of the symptoms but aren’t responsible for controlling the root problem.
If we inhibit our body’s natural processes, we cannot reach a stable balance in our skin.
When it comes to skin products, only CBD isolates are allowed to be used. It means, not other phytocannabinoids can go onto the formulations. A CBD isolate is the purest form of CBD.
CBD topical products don’t enter your bloodstream. You can benefit from localised and almost immediate CBD effects.
How it works
Because CBD gets absorbed in the application area, it has a much quicker and almost immediate effect over the desired region.
When you consume CBD, it must pass through the gastric system and get metabolised. Only after this, the CBD starts to interact with your endocannabinoid system across your body. On average, you will expect a CBD topical product to have effects within 10 minutes of the application whilst for ingestion is approximately one hour.
What happens when you apply CBD to your skin?
Both of the endocannabinoid system’s primary receptors, the CB1 and CB2 are found across the entire skin.
When CBD comes in contact with these receptors, they get engaged and signal the skin cells. This signal leads to action. One of the endocannabinoid system’s primary functions is to support our body finding the “perfect equilibrium“, this term is known as homeostasis.
Here, at Voice of Nature, we love skin CBD products because of its balancing, regulatory effect. The skin is one of the most essential organs and has to be well looked after.
The ability to maintain a relatively stable and steady internal condition which persists despite changes on the outside. Examples of this are our body temperature, blood sugar levels or blood pressure.
VoN CBD Balm ingredients benefits
We are rather proud of our balm, is a product that is quickly becoming a favourite due to its qualities and natural ingredients. All the ingredients in VoN 2% CBD balm have been carefully handpicked for its properties. On their own, they are skincare champions, all together become a skin best dream.
- Shea butter
Shea butter comes from the Shea tree seeds. We can find Shea trees across the east and west tropical Africa.
The kernel is removed from the seed, grounded into a powder, and boiled in water to obtain butter. After been cooked, the butter rises to the top and becomes solid.
Its high concentrations of fatty acids and vitamins make Shea butter an ideal emollient (soften your skin). It creates a smooth and soft barrier that keeps your skin moisturised for hours.
- Coconut oil butter
As you can expect, coconut oil butter comes from the nut of the coconut palm. Coconut oil butter has nutrients that coconut oils doesn’t such as saturated fats and fibre.
Similar to Shea butter, it has a moisturising effect.
- Mango seed butter
The mango itself is native to South Asia, though the trees are cultivated in many locations for their fruits like India, China, Brazil, and Mexico.
Mango seed butter is obtained by cold pressing. Like coconut and Shea butter, is moisturising without leaving a greasy feel.
Mango seed butter is a great skincare ingredient; it is rich in oleic acid and stearic acid. These ingredients, when are absorbed by the skin, add moisture and tightens the appearance of skin.
- Cocoa seed butter
No introduction need for this magical ingredient, the chocolate. As a curiosity “Theobroma” (part of its scientific name) means “food of the gods” in Greek. We called “magical” as the exact chemical nature of cocoa is not fully understood.
For the skin, cocoa butter counts as a rich emollient that can moisturise and nourish even the driest skin. It also has other “goodies” for the skin such as oleic, stearic, and palmitic acids. It also has antioxidant vitamin E and polyphenols.
- Sweet almond oil
The almond trees origins are the warmer parts of western Asia and North Africa, they are also cultivated around the Mediterranean for a long time.
Since ancient times, almond oil is extracted for skin uses.
Nowadays, sweet almond oil still used mainly for its many benefits for the skin and hair. It’s packed with vitamin E, magnesium, phosphorus, and copper. This antioxidant-rich oil is known for its free-radical fighting abilities.
- Candelilla wax
Candelilla wax is of plant origin. It’s derived from small shrubs original to northern Mexico. It’s ideal for vegan formulated products (like ours).
Candelilla Wax is collected by boiling the full-grown plant. When the crude wax rises to the surface of the water is skimmed off. The final product is a hard, light-yellow wax.
It creates a barrier between the skin and the environmental -this way, the skin is protected against harsh stressors-.
- Hemp seed oil
We know that hemp is a formidable plant, but there’s something about the oil made from it seeds that benefit the skin.
Hemp seed oil is so rich in different nutrients, that is an ideal choice for skincare use. Hemp seeds have high amounts of essential fatty acids, like linoleic and gamma-linolenic acid. The seeds have a full list of skin-friendly vitamins: Vitamin E, Vitamin D, Vitamin B1 and B2…and minerals like potassium, magnesium, iron, zinc, calcium, and phosphorus.
When using a balm, which contains hemp seed oil, your skin will receive the nutrients it needs to stay healthy and resilient.
Whilst other products inhibit issues without addressing the root cause, topical CBD regulates skin processes instead of just masking them.
If you wish your skin to reach a stable natural balance, a CBD topical is the solution. It will provide your skin with an immediate and targeted effect.
Voice of Nature; CBD that cares.
