Wondering what CBD crystals are and how they can be used in skin care? Do you suffer from dry skin, acne, redness or visible signs of aging? Explore what can be done to increase the effectiveness of beauty products and improve skin health.

What is a CBD crystal?

If you're looking for the purest possible form of CBD (cannabidiol), a CBD crystal will probably catch your attention. This is an isolate with 99% CBD content concentrated into crystals. For ease of use, it is crushed and thus takes the form of a fine white powder with the consistency of powdered sugar.

How is the purest CBD produced?

CBD crystals are extracted from the cannabis plant. Most commonly, supercritical extraction is used to produce CBD crystals. This is the gentlest and most gentle form of extraction using supercritical CO2, and no chemical solvents are used. This method uses a special machine that combines high pressure and temperature to dissolve the CBD and other components in the hemp plant.

The extract is separated from the plant materials and an isolation process is followed to produce a pure CBD crystal. The result is a fine, odorless white powder that contains no other cannabinoids or terpenes.

CBD in cosmetics

CBD crystals are often used in cosmetic products because of their known skin benefits. CBD has the potential to improve skin quality, reduce inflammation and eliminate some skin problems. It also helps to reduce the visible signs of aging and fights free radical damage.

Where can you add CBD crystals?

  • Ointments and creams: Adding CBD crystals to ointments and creams can increase their effectiveness, helping to hydrate, reduce inflammation and improve the skin overall.
  • Oils: You can add CBD crystals to a variety of oils, such as vegetable or essential oils. Use them for massage or as part of aromatherapy to improve the quality of your skin.
  • Lotion and toner: Adding CBD crystals to lotions used to cleanse and moisturize the skin can improve skin texture and help fight inflammation.
  • Facial mask: CBD crystals can also be added to a face mask to improve the overall quality of the skin.

When first applying any ointment or oil (whether CBD-containing or not), always apply a small amount to your forearm first and watch for any adverse reactions such as uncomfortable redness, burning or itching.

CBD and acne

Acne is one of the most unpleasant skin diseases, and although it is often mentioned in the context of adolescence, it is far from being limited to teenagers. Unpleasant pimples and boils appear due to clogged and inflamed sebaceous glands most often on the face, but also on the back, chest and shoulders.

Research shows that CBD has the potential to regulate excessive sebum production and act as an anti-inflammatory and antibacterial agent. Thanks to its soothing effects, skin redness associated with acne also subsides, leaving you looking and feeling better.

CBD and aging

Wrinkles are a natural consequence of aging. As we age, collagen and elastin levels decrease and cell renewal slows down. In the case of prolonged lack of hydration, deep wrinkles develop.

Thanks to their antioxidant content, creams with added CBD crystals can reduce the visible signs of ageing by helping to reduce or soften wrinkles and restore elasticity and firmness to the skin.

Although we can't stop ageing yet, we can at least slow it down.

CBD and skin diseases

It seems that the use of CBD can have a beneficial effect on a range of skin conditions such as psoriasis, psoriasis, eczema or dermatitis. CBD has anti-inflammatory potential, can reduce redness and reduce itching and dryness by hydrating the skin.

Research and initial findings of possible therapeutic effects in skin diseases are promising, but further studies are needed to determine and evaluate all the benefits and risks. Always consult your general practitioner or dermatologist for serious skin conditions.

Who are CBD crystals suitable for?

CBD crystals a great choice for women looking for natural alternatives to chemical ingredients in beauty products. CBD isolate is a pure substance obtained by the gentlest extraction. Adding it to an ointment, cream, oil, lotion or mask will increase the effectiveness of these products. At the same time, you can promote skin healing, hydrate the skin, improve skin quality and firmness, and slow down the visible signs of aging.
