What is CBD & Why Does Your Skin Need It?

CBD, or cannabidiol, has become one of the buzziest trends in beauty for its incredible calming and nourishing effects.

This super-ingredient has been blended into body creams, facial oils, and even lip balms. At Avon, we’ve just created Green Goddess Facial Oil, our very first facial oil formulated with 100mg of CBD from domestically grown hemp.

So, what is CBD? Short for cannabidiol, CBD is a compound extracted from hemp (a form of the cannabis plant), which is showing up in more and more cosmetic formulations. CBD is a natural fit for high-end beauty and skin care products in the therapeutic and anti-aging categories. The 2018 Farm Bill (recent legislation on farming regulations) legalized hemp for industrial purposes, putting CBD in the spotlight of beauty enthusiasts nationwide.

While some CBD skin care may contain traces of tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, (the known chemical that makes people ‘high’) Avon’s Green Goddess Facial Oil is made from hemp and does not contain any THC. The only high you’ll get is knowing that your skin feels cool, calm and collected. Our CBD is sustainably sourced, too, and we used the entire hemp plant in Green Goddess (stalk, seeds, stem, leaves, flowers), so no part went to waste. Plus, we use sustainable packaging as well.

The facial oil contains 100mg of CBD to give you a relaxing experience and contains vitamins A, D, and E, and essential fatty acids to soothe and moisturize sensitive skin. Additionally, it features a blend of other plant-derived ingredients including hemp seed oil, turmeric (to combat redness and irritation), sugarcane-derived squalane oil, and sunflower seed oil (to moisturize and soften the skin) for a formula that’s 99% natural and packed with antioxidants that help nourish, repair and protect the skin.

To help nourish and heal your complexion with jojoba oil, try Green Goddess Facial Oil, infused with 100mg of CBD. This vegan formula also contains botanicals like hemp seed oil and turmeric, which blend with jojoba oil to visibly reduce redness and relieve irritation. The jojoba in this formula also infuses skin with antioxidants while helping to fight the bacteria it’s exposed to. You can also use Green Goddess to treat acne scars, and it works best as the last step of your skin care routine.
