CBD and cannabinoids: key ingredients in the cosmetics industry!
A natural extract from the hemp plant, cannabidiol, or CBD, tops the list of key ingredients in the cosmetics industry! It must be said that its analgesic, anti-inflammatory and soothing properties are a blessing for the skin of the face and body. By interacting with receptors in the endocannabinoid system, cannabidiol (CBD) induces a cascade of natural benefits for body and mind.
Used orally, sublingually or inhaled, cannabidiol (CBD) produces a relaxing effect and relieves pain. According to the Hemp Trades Interprofession, France has nearly 7 million consumers of CBD products, mainly for oral, sublingual or inhalation use: cannabidiol oils, CBD flowers and leaves, resin, wax, etc.
As science has highlighted the moisturizing power and anti-inflammatory properties of cannabidiol in topical use, the major cosmetics players have quickly incorporated CBD into the ingredients of their skincare products. Unlike oral use, the topical application of CBD (oil, cream, balm, stick, gel, etc.) makes it possible to target certain areas of the skin to concentrate all the properties of natural cannabidiol and fight against dry skin, pain. muscles, sore skin, dry or chapped lips, etc. In France, natural CBD cosmetics are being emulated!
Dry lips: an overview of the causes
Cold and dry weather, repeated exposure to the sun and the bad habit of moistening your lips with your tongue. These are the three main reasons why your lips are regularly dry and/or chapped.
The skin of the lips is thinner and more sensitive. The absence of sebaceous glands is not to fix things, exploding the lips at the risk of dehydration. Also, for obvious reasons, the corners of the lips are strained all day, every time you open your mouth. Also, chapping, or "cheilitis" in scientific terms, can be made worse by contact with an allergen or underlying health condition (thyroid disorder, certain autoimmune diseases, iron and/or vitamin deficiency). E, etc).
For all these reasons, people who live in regions with cold and dry climates are most at risk for dry and chapped lips. Children and adolescents who develop a lip-licking tic are also affected. In addition to dryness in the lips, they may also develop a rash around the mouth. People with dry skin, especially in the "T" zone of the face, often experience seasonal chapping, especially in mid-winter.
Generally, dry, chapped lips are more uncomfortable than painful. On the other hand, severely chapped lips can cause pain on contact with certain foods, including citrus fruits and spicy and/or salty foods. When the dryness reaches the corners of the lips, pain may be felt when opening the mouth.
CBD lip balm: rigorously selected ingredients
Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a non-psychotropic and non-addictive molecule extracted from the natural hemp plant. With its analgesic, anti-inflammatory and soothing properties, CBD has made a remarkable incursion into the cosmetics industry, particularly in face and body skin care.
Consumers who wish to take advantage of the analgesic, soothing and anti-inflammatory properties of cannabidiol (CBD) can find the molecule in different product formats: CBD oils (CBD Oil), cannabidiol cream, balm for dry lips, gel , stick, surgras soap and other face and body care products for topical use.
In a lip balm, cannabidiol is often combined with ingredients such as essential oils, chia seeds, natural shea butter (or Butyrospermum Parkii butter), organic jojoba seed oil, wax Sunflower Oil (or Helianthus Seed Cera), Sweet Almond Oil (or Prunus Dulcis Oil), Sativa Hemp Seed Oil, Vanilla Extract, etc.
CBD balm for healthy lips
CBD Lip Balm is designed to soothe, repair and deeply hydrate dry, chapped lips. Cannabidiol (CBD) acts as a moisturizing protective agent that nourishes, soothes and strengthens the skin of the lips, especially in winter when the climate is cold and dry.

Your lip stick will also use nourishing ingredients such as organic jojoba seed oil, shea butter or even grape oil to plump up your lips and restore their shine.
CBD lip balms: tips for use
Apply your CBD lip stick when you wake up, before sleeping, whenever your lips are in direct contact with water (especially if it is hard) and, more broadly, whenever you feel discomfort in the level of the lips or the corner of the lips. Please note: your lipstick or lip balm can be used in other areas where the skin shows the same symptoms of dryness. Consult the manufacturer's instructions.
