Due to the absence of monitoring by the FDA, manufacturers are free to use questionable marketing practices to promote their goods, claiming that they include compounds such as CBD, even though the compound may or may not be present. The good news is that there are certain actions that customers may take to ensure that the products are both authentic and effective. Before purchasing CBD skincare products, here's everything you need to know to make an informed decision.
- Only buy CBD skincare products from trusted vendors like SWISS 1876
- Look for companies with Certificates of Analysis readily available, to show you the amount of CBD and other compounds in their products.
- Look for companies that can easily tell you the purity of their CBD. For example, SWISS 1876 Isolate Oil is 99.9% pure CBD. This is the same oil infused into all of our cosmetic products.
- Terms like CBD, phytocannabinoids-rich hemp oil, and hemp extract oil give you an idea of the authenticity and knowledge of the seller
CBD is one of the two principal active elements of cannabis, the other one being none other than THC (tetrahydrocannabinol)—an active psychoactive component of the plant. It is a naturally occurring chemical substance found in cannabis plants: marijuana and hemp.
Data supports the use of CBD in skincare for many potential skin benefits, however, there is very limited research on why THC should be in skincare. This is why SWISS 1876 assures customers we only use 99.9% pure CBD and have 0.0% THC in our cosmetic products.
Keep an eye out for the following terms in the product's list of ingredients when shopping for a CBD-infused skincare product: CBD, phytocannabinoids-rich hemp oil, full-spectrum hemp extract, hemp CBD, and hemp extract oil.
Clearly, Swiss formulators are gaining a better grasp of CBD, given that it has gone from unheard of and illegal to the shelves of many major skincare outlets in Switzerland. However, Swiss1876—a beauty and wellness brand based in the Swiss Alps, is already ahead of the game. With a product line focused on skincare, the CBD-infused brand has everything you need to form a perfect regimen.
