The Soothing Power of CBD

In the last few years, cannabidiol (CBD) has taken its place in the arena of beauty and skincare. CBD is a non-psychoactive compound derived from the hemp plant, and its benefits for the skin are marked. High in antioxidants, CBD can soothe skin, tame redness, and promote balance in our outer layer—giving it good reason to gain prominence in our routines.

Did you know CBD has a role in the skincare industry?!

CBD is known to soothe skin, taming redness, eczema, and psoriasis. The anti-inflammatory components of the compound regulate the body’s natural immune response, making our skin smooth and clear. Analgesic properties in CBD can also reduce skin sensitivity, taming down any discomfort or pain caused by the inflammation. The calming properties that it provides don’t end at the surface, either—CBD’s soothing effect makes for an overall sense of peace and wellbeing throughout the body.

Human brains are full of endocannabinoid receptors, which regulate the action coming from our other neurotransmitters to mediate feelings of excitement, hunger, and temperature – key stuff for survival. Our bodies produce their own endocannabinoids, which are very similar to those found in CBD. For thousands of years, people have been making use of “hacking” their minds and bodies with a little extra—managing stress, appetite, and internal inflammation.

It’s also a powerhouse of antioxidants. CBD is an all natural ingredient for fighting free radicals in the environment. Free radicals are known to cause signs of aging. Protection from the oxidative stress they cause means that a little CBD in one’s skincare routine will keep them looking younger and more radiant for longer. It’s also suitable for all skin types. Known for its ability to balance oil production in our skin, CBD can prevent breakouts, clogged pores, and acne. As the compound is also naturally hydrating, it can do all of this without ever stripping the skin of the sebum it needs to stay glowing.

Even though CBD provides great benefits to our skin, it is able to best work its magic when taken orally. That’s why Farrow offers Skin Elixir, a neat little dropper with the power of CBD to be taken sublingually. We never put our CBD into our creams, because there’s no sense in you paying for a quality ingredient without making the most of its benefits.

At Farrow, we firmly believe that our skincare products should benefit our environment just as much as they do our bodies. That’s why we source CBD used in our ingredient from right here in East Tennessee, a local farm committed to sustainable farming practices and responsible land stewardship. That means no harmful chemicals or pesticides will ever find their way into our CBD, and the land it’s grown on will never be stripped of its nutrients. This ensures a healthy, quality ingredient and support of our local producers and economy. Traceability from seed to seal is so important. By working with local farmers, Farrow is able to reduce our carbon footprint and secure the highest quality ingredients for our Elixir.  Everything from the farm, down the supply chain, to you is carefully planned for the quality of your product and the respect of our land.

Farrow is proud to be a part of the movement toward natural and sustainable skincare products that actually work. By harnessing the power of locally grown, sustainably farmed CBD, we give our customers the opportunity to evolve their skincare routine with the knowledge that they are contributing to a more ethical and environmentally friendly market.
