British wellness company Cellular Goods has published a white paper that reveals the benefits cannabinoids can confer to skincare applications.
‘The Five A’s of Cannabinoid Skincare’ outlines the ageing prevention, anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-melanogenesis properties of cannabidiol (CBD) and cannabigerol (CBG).
The paper points to a growing body of evidence that CBD and, in particular CBG, are potent actives that can prevent the skin ageing effects of UV radiation; inhibit the irritating effects of inflammation that accelerate ageing in a process coined as ‘inflammaging’; protect skin from the damaging effects of cellular oxidation and reactive oxygen species (ROS); stop the growth of blemish-causing bacteria; and through anti-melanogenesis brighten skin and promote skin tone.
"The benefits of cannabinoids for maintaining healthy skin are both far-reaching and undeniable and the release of the white paper shows Cellular’s commitment to delivering science-backed cannabinoid-powered products that can support healthier, youthful skin and elevate any robust skincare routine,” said chief executive Anna Chokina.
“The total addressable market for skincare products designed to support age-prevention and tackle blemishes and hyperpigmentation is substantial and Cellular Goods is proud to provide consumers with rejuvenating products that can address this array of skincare concerns,” she added.
