retinol and cbd

However, the truth is that not all skin care products were created equal and some are going to be much more effective than others. CBD and retinol products belong in this group. Both ingredients have been heavily tested in laboratory studies and by consumers, and the results are in: they can have transformative effects on the skin.

What Do CBD and Retinol Do?

Part of its appeal lies in its anti-aging abilities. It fights off free radicals, which are known to attack healthy skin cells and cause wrinkles. It also increases collagen production, which helps to reduce the appearance of existing fine lines on the face. It can also help to reduce acne by restoring balance to the levels of sebum produced in the skin, and soothe eczema and psoriasis prone skin thanks to its natural anti-inflammatory properties.

Using CBD and Retinol: What You Need To Know

Choosing the right CBD is relatively straightforward; retinol, on the other hand, requires a little more attention. Don’t be put off though — a good one is well worth the extra effort. Here are three tips to make sure that you get off to the right start:

Retinol and cbd

Cannabidiol (CBD) is sourced from hemp (Cannabis sativa) stems and stalks. This plant is rich in cannabinoids and contains minimal to undetectable levels of THC. CBD helps restore overall balance in the body along with other benefits. CBD can be sourced from both marijuana and hemp plants. Only CBD sourced from industrial hemp plants is federally legal.

We recommend consulting your health care provider to discuss use of CBD skincare before, during and after pregnancy.

Is CBD legal in cosmetics?

Our products contain full-spectrum cannabidiol (CBD) which is derived from the highest-quality parts of industrial hemp plants (proven to contain less than 0.2% THC). This is then combined with nourishing plant oils to deliver unique benefits to the skin. We don’t use any CBD than comes from the marijuana plant.


Will Paula’s Choice products affect drugs tests?

A natural ingredient that can help address multiple skin concerns, read all about CBD and find out why it deserves a spot in your skincare routine.

No. We source from industrial hemp, which means minimal to zero amounts of THC are included in the products. More notably, applying a topical CBD product to skin only allows it to enter the top layers of skin, not into the bloodstream.

Retinol and cbd

Developed to tackle the cause and effects of skin ageing, PAULA’S CHOICE CBD Oil + Retinol marries full spectrum hemp-derived cannabidiol with 0.5% retinol, to fortify skin and support its reparative processes.

Working in collaboration with moisturising medium-chain triglycerides (elasticising fatty acids with emollient effects), stress-reducing centella asiatica and a mid-strength retinol, this 98% natural formula works to hydrate and rejuvenate skin without ruffling feathers. Great for addressing the root cause of cell degradation (we’re looking at you, inflammation) to keep your skin stronger for longer, this helps to inhibit the everyday stressors that cause sensitivity while retinol triggers repair and renewal – stimulating synthesis of collagen to keep things firm and ‘springy’. Your skin will look rapidly smoother with fewer fine lines and renewed luminosity.

Priding themselves on transparency, the PAULA’S CHOICE mission is simple: cut through the industry noise to debunk beauty myths and empower consumers (hear hear!). With a swathe of results-driven skin care that’s brimming with targeted, active ingredients (in this case, full spectrum hemp-derived cannabidiol (or CBD, to you and me)), you’ll find something to tackle the spectrum of common concerns – from redness to dryness and breakouts to broken capillaries. It’s no wonder the beautysphere places its faith in this game-changing range (you should too).

Dispense 2-3 drops into the palm of your hand and then apply to your face. Add a couple more drops if you will also be applying to your neck and chest. During the day, finish with a moisturiser with sunscreen rated SPF 30 or greater. Suitable for use around the eyes.
