CBD cosmetics: a logical craze!
Over the past decade, brands specializing in beauty products as well as brands specializing in legal hemp have mobilized their Research and Development (R&D) departments to assess the interest of CBD for the skin, the hair and scalp. It didn't take them long to see that the anti-inflammatory and soothing effects of CBD and other cannabinoids in the hemp plant, including Cannabis L. Sativa and Cannabis Indica, are of undeniable interest in this area.
This is how the big names in the cosmetics industry have gradually integrated CBD into the key ingredients of their cosmetic products such as "cream", "shampoo", "conditioner", "skin care". , etc. The enthusiasm was immediate, with consumers (and especially female consumers) giving CBD a chance in their daily health and beauty routine.
It must be said that the success was predictable, because CBD products (apart from cosmetics) have largely found their audience in France. According to figures relayed by the Interprofession of hemp trades (Inter Chanvre), France has nearly 7 million regular or occasional consumers of CBD products. They consume CBD oils, flowers, leaves and resin to improve their health and optimize their quality of life. More and more of them are sharing the benefits of CBD with their pets, especially with cannabidiol oils for cats and dogs.
What is CBD shampoo?
As the name suggests, CBD shampoo is simply a liquid, cream or powder that cleanses the hair and treats the scalp, and contains CBD in its ingredients. CBD shampoos are generally hair products made from hemp oil or isolate from Cannabis L. Sativa and/or Cannabis Indica strains. p>
What are the common ingredients in CBD shampoos?
While each product has its own formulation, the CBD shampoos and other hair care products we offer in our stock almost all contain at least some of the following ingredients:
- Hemp oil, rich in essential fatty acids and vitamin E. The calming and soothing effect of CBD allows calm scalp irritation, prevent the appearance of dandruff and promote hair growth;
- Lemon oil, a powerful antibacterial that leaves a pleasant, mild scent on hair and scalp. It is a key ingredient in products and other organic hair care products;
- Lavender oil that has a purifying and calming effect on the scalp;
- Rosemary oil, another powerful antibacterial and fungicide.
Note: The best CBD shampoos do not contain sodium. Used in hair cosmetics to promote dense texture and foaming power, sodium can be irritating, drying and allergenic for people with sensitive or inflamed scalps. In hair cosmetics, sodium can be listed under different names: sodium, sodium laureth, sulfates, SLES, etc.
The best CBD shampoos contain good fatty acids such as omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids which stimulate hair functions by promoting the formation of keratin. The presence of gamma-linoacid is a plus, as it stimulates hair growth and strengthens it.
What are the benefits of CBD shampoo?
Cannabidiol is a non-psychotropic and non-addictive molecule extracted from the hemp plant, including the Cannabis L. Sativa and Cannabis Indica varieties. By interacting with the endocannabinoid system, cannabidiol expresses soothing effects, analgesic properties and anti-inflammatory properties. CBD can be consumed sublingually (oils, capsules), orally ingested (herbal teas, energy drinks, candies, capsules) or applied topically (creams, shampoo and hair lotions, cannabidiol serums, etc.).
The cannabidiol oil found in CBD shampoo has two great benefits for the skin, scalp, and hair. It provides the emollient benefits of natural oils from the hemp plant to moisturize, protect and soften the skin, and mobilizes the anti-inflammatory effects of cannabidiol to relieve itchy skin, eczema and psoriasis, conditions that often target the skin. scalp. Remember that inflammation is a major cause of hair loss, itchy scalp and lack of hair vitality.
CBD shampoo: tips for use
Apply your cannabidiol shampoo as you would apply any other shampoo: a dab of product more or less generous depending on the density of your hair, to be applied to wet hair. Massage the scalp with circular and firm movements, working into a lather. Note: CBD shampoo lathers less than other hair lotions, as it contains fewer chemical ingredients (including sodium sulfates). Rinse thoroughly. For best results, use a CBD conditioner. How often you wash your hair depends on the health of your scalp and your hair type. People who have particularly oily scalps generally prefer to wash their hair at least once every two or three days. People who have dry hair should generally use a daily moisturizer to nourish their scalp and hair.
Is CBD shampoo legal in France?
Like all products containing cannabidiol, CBD shampoo, hair lotions and cosmetics are governed by European decree n0 639 – 2014 relating to legal hemp products. In France, only CBD products with less than 0.2% THC can be freely marketed. THC is a psychotropic and addictive cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. The almost zero level of THC imposed by the legislation in force in France therefore guarantees the absence of any psychotropic effect. Of course, our stock consists exclusively of 100% legally compliant CBD cosmetic products.
