Every year the $532 billion-dollar global beauty industry delivers hot trends and new ingredients that people can’t wait to get. Periodically beauty companies will rush to infuse their products with the latest buzzworthy ingredients, like green tea or activated charcoal.
Since 2018 Cannabinoid (CBD) oil has spawned an extensive list of CBD infused beauty merchandise. It’s hard not to come across a cosmetics label touting the benefits of CBD infused serums, lotions, oils, balms, shampoos, and soaps. We at Puure Therapeutics, created this article to show you benefits and quality of CBD Beauty Products.
In this article you will learn:
What Is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) oil is isolated from the stems, buds, leaves, and flowers of cannabis (or hemp) plants. CBD is one of at least 80 active cannabinoid compounds that stimulate health and beauty benefits.
The cannabis plant is also the source for the psychoactive drug, marijuana. Unlike CBD, marijuana contains THC which creates the feeling of being “high”. CBD oil has, at most, 0.3% THC which isn’t nearly enough to significantly affect someone’s mental processes. CBD users are strictly focused on its health and beauty benefits.
CBD oil has been proven to positively interact with the endocannabinoid system (ECS) responsible for the nervous system, immune system, brain, and skin. Not to mention CBD’s proven anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, antiseptic, and analgesic properties. CBD has other body benefits like essential fatty acids, antioxidants, as well as vitamins E, D, and A.
Based on all these benefits, it seems an obvious choice for manufacturers to infuse their goods with CBD for the treatment of acne, dryness, psoriasis, eczema, dermatitis, or signs of aging.
What are CBD Beauty Products?
From high-end retailers to local pharmacies, Americans can find CBD items in nearly every aisle. The U.S. CBD market has exploded and is predicted to earn $16,000,000 over the next 15 years. It makes sense that every day there are new CBD infused products available for your face, hair, skin, and muscles.
Since CBD has so many amazing benefits hidden within its all-natural and (usually) organic oil, then it’s obviously a great choice for personal grooming. You’ll see many CBD skincare and CBD beauty products such as:
How Much CBD Oil Should You Use and How Often?
CBD oil in beauty products can be used as often as you wish. Every CBD beauty product will come with its own usage instructions which you should follow closely. Most cosmetic or grooming products are intended for daily use and that’s true even when CBD is the main ingredient.
Keep in mind, you only need a little bit of CBD to receive many of its well-documented benefits. So, lathering on lots of CBD lotion or soap isn’t going to do more for you than simply using the instructed dose. Also, buying a higher dosed CBD product isn’t always worthwhile since it won’t give you faster or better results than one with a lower CBD dose.
Most people find CBD to be soothing but it’s always a good idea to patch test new skincare products. CBD does contain some molecules that are known allergens. Those with a sensitivity to those components of CBD might develop stinging, burning, or redness.
How to Shop for CBD Beauty Products?
There are a few tips beauty experts suggest you consider when spending hard-earned cash on the latest CBD beauty or skincare product. First, you must remember that the CBD market is flooded with new merchandise and mostly it’s unregulated.
In fact, the Food & Drug Association (FDA) is responsible for beauty and cosmetics. Mostly the FDA oversees a post-market regulatory system that doesn’t review merchandise before it’s sold to the public.
It’s really up to you to be sure the CBD cosmetic you’re buying is worth the price tag. Check out our list of things to look for when you are buying CBD beauty products.
Look for CBD packages or CBD manufacturer websites that state an independent third-party lab tested the product. That way you can feel confident the cosmetic companies aren’t just bragging about their CBD lotion or shampoo without any proof.
You’ll want to check for packages that use the terms “full spectrum CBD”, or “broad spectrum CBD”, “CBD extract”, or “CBD oil” to be confident you’re getting the real deal. If the label states “hemp seed oil”, “hemp seed extract”, or “cannabis sativa oil” instead then you know the product doesn’t contain any CBD. You wouldn’t want to pay top dollar for serums made from hemp seed oils rather than CBD.
By law, cosmetic companies must list their ingredients in order of potency from most to least. That means if CBD isn’t the first ingredient then you’re probably getting very little CBD. The shorter list of ingredients, the better.
You should feel good purchasing beauty items from companies that are transparent and follow all the CBD industry guidelines, such as those recommended by the U.S. Hemp Authority. Typically, it’s worthwhile buying from manufacturers that share Certificates of Authenticity (COA), publish verified customer reviews, and easily answer any questions you may have.
Luxury Beauty Products
Maybe you should start your costly CBD collection with a long-lasting CBD product (e.g. overnight face masks) or focus on treating serious skin conditions (e.g. acne or psoriasis) that’s negatively impacting your life. Over time you can invest in other luxury CBD products as needed.
What is the Best CBD Oil for Skin?
You always want to look for skincare products that are made of high quality, terpene rich CBD oil. When you are dealing with your skin you want the most natural ingredients you can find, especially if its for your face. Puure Therapeutics offers CBD Oil that is pharmacist founded and formulated. All Puure Therapeutic CBD Oils are:
- Derived from Organic, non-GMO hemp
- Grown in the United States
- Independently Tested by a Third-Party Lab
- Less than 0.3% THC

The greater the quality and cleaner the CBD Oil is the better the results will be for your skin. We recommend full spectrum or broad spectrum CBD for skincare and beauty products. These types of CBD contain additional cannabinoids outside of CBD that have beneficial nutrients.
