Give Your Skin a Chill Pill
Our new CBD 300 Face and Body Cream is infused with botanicals that are seriously effective for targeted soothing, calming and visible redness reduction.
CBD—a nickname for cannabidiol and derived from the cannabis sativa plant—has been turning up in everything from chocolate to bath bombs. But we didn’t start experimenting with this ingredient to be trendy. Rather, the launch of our new CBD 300 Face and Body Cream has been a two-year-long passion project of founder Sylvie Chantecaille, ever since she experienced amazing results using CBD cream to soothe a sore knee. “I was very excited to see what we could do with it for the skin,” Sylvie says. “Launching a luxury CBD cream makes so much sense for us, given that we have always based our skincare on the soothing properties of botanical ingredients.”
Most importantly, Sylvie and her product development team wanted to be certain of the purity and quality of the CBD extract, an ingredient that’s garnered a growing amount of scientific research. The team decided on a broad-spectrum hemp oil, which is organically grown in Kentucky and processed in Colorado. Naturally rich in CBD, the oil contains no detectable THC, so it’s non-psychoactive (it won’t make you high). “We wanted to do something strong but safe for a fuller effect,” Sylvie adds, explaining her choice to infuse each jar with 300 mg of CBD. This translates to 6mg per standard dollop (1 milliliter) - more than 3 times the potency of most CBD creams on the market.
"It’s thought that CBD on its own works less well than when it’s paired with all the other components of the plant."
THE “ENTOURAGE EFFECT”
One cool feature of our full-spectrum CBD-rich hemp oil is that it is extracted from the entire plant—and therefore contains other cannabinoids, or antioxidant molecules similar to CBD that work together for an even stronger soothing effect. Terpenes are another component of CBD—these compounds are what give it its natural aroma and help it have a more impactful effect on the body. “It’s thought that CBD on its own works less well than when it’s paired with all the other components of the plant,” says Marta Cammarano, director of product development. “This is known as the ‘entourage effect’.”
MORE INGREDIENTS, MORE CALMING
Knowing this about CBD, the team decided to add three additional innovative botanicals that come with proven in vivo data. Each one of these amazing botanicals leaves skin visibly calmer and soothed in a topical treatment that is 98.5% natural. These include:
CANNABIS SATIVA STEM CELL EXTRACT
Derived from the same plant family as hemp, this extract is THC-free and contains high levels of cannaflavin B, a powerful antioxidant that has been shown in in vivo studies to reduce visible redness and boost skin’s moisture.
EGGPLANT STEM CELL EXTRACT
Grown in a lab from cells taken from the purple nightshade, this ingredient helps to cocoon hypersensitive skin, improving signs of stress and visible redness and strengthening the skin’s moisture barrier.
Derived from a South American superfruit, it immediately improves the appearance of stressed skin, reducing visible redness and strengthening the skin barrier.
HOW TO USE IT
Designed for both face and body, our CBD cream is incredibly versatile. You can incorporate it into your regular skincare routine, layering it on top of your favorite morning moisturizer and re-applying as needed. In the evening, just blend it with your moisturizer or an overnight mask (like our Bio Lifting Mask, Gold Recovery Mask, or Jasmine Lily Healing Mask).
Or use CBD-300 as a spot treatment to address any visible redness or sensitive spots on the face, neck, or body. You can get more mileage out of each ounce by blending it with Rose de Mai Face or Body Oil, which is a great cocktail for a soothing massage.
