Cannabidiol, or CBD for short, is making its way into beauty products like moisturizers, serums, makeup, and much more. With an already dry fall winding down and an even dryer winter ahead of us, many are looking for ways to protect and nourish their skin. CBD skincare could be the answer to all their woes.
This is where products such as serums and moisturizers are vitally beneficial. While these types of products are well-known entities, the addition of CBD has elevated their effectiveness. However, that doesn’t mean you should pick up just ANY CBD moisturizer you see.
The following guide will tell you what to look for when shopping for CBD beauty products.
What to Look for in CBD Skincare Products
Most people seeking cannabinoid-infused skincare want plant-based ingredients over synthetics like petroleum, phthalates, and parabens. Fortunately, some brands offer organic, natural, botanical products without harmful additives.
When searching for a CBD or cannabis-infused skincare product, this is what you’ll want to look out for:
Third-Party Testing Results (Known as a COA) Verifying the Concentration of Cannabinoids
Ensure the Product is a True CBD Product and Not a Seed Oil
Look for “Cannabidiol,” “Broad-Spectrum CBD,” “Full-Spectrum CBD,” “Hemp CBD,” or “Phytocannabinoid-Rich Hemp Oil”
Moisturization is key to skin health. Without the proper moisturization, our skin can become tight, dry, and potentially red and itchy. It will also be prone to early signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles, as well as hyperpigmentation. Let’s explore a few of the CBD moisturizers on the market today.
Leanna Organics CBD Body Cream
Leanna Organics CBD Body Cream is a healthy balance of natural plant butters, vitamins, oils, and water ideal for regulating “skin oils with a pH of 5.5 for ideal balance.” The product is guaranteed free of heavy metals, solvents, pesticides, and THC — backed by third-party testing. Choose between the 300mg 4oz jar or 600mg 6oz option in Rose, Mango, or Natural aroma options. This moisturizer contains a hemp-based CBD isolate, natural preservatives, and 100% natural options.

Serums are another vitally beneficial product for skin health. These products are lighter than moisturizers but thicker than average toners.

It blends over “20 of the world’s most sought-after plant oils.” These include frankincense, sandalwood, rose, blue tansy, vetiver, and more. These powerful oils help to deliver a high concentration of vitamins and antioxidants to the skin. So much in fact, the brand highly suggests that you take before and after photos to see a remarkable transformation.
The Gold Serum is fast-absorbing and “SLS & Dye Free, Vegan, Cruelty-Free, and Paraben Free.” It is also free of ingredients found in common skincare products, such as sulfates, PEGs, SLSs, and synthetic fragrances.
Salvarae CBD Skin Serum
The CBD Skin Serum by Salvarae offers 100mg of CBD in a 1oz bottle. This serum is made in small batches using all organic ingredients, including CBD flower extract (a blend of full-spectrum CBD flower and avocado oil), sesame oil, calendula-infused sweet almond oil, aloe vera oil, an essential oil blend, and several unrefined seed oils.
CBD Skincare: Beauty Industry Takeover
Serums and moisturizers are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to infused skincare and beauty products. As Veriheal reported recently, the CBD beauty market is projected to reach $3.4 billion by 2026. So, what exactly is fueling the CBD beauty market’s massive projections?
This massive projection is fueled by studies showing cannabinoids’ skin-healing properties. Studies found that CBD offers antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antifungal, and even anti-aging properties.
