What is natural skincare?

The use of natural botanicals to care for skin dates back thousands of years. In the centuries before manufacturers offered easy access to numerous product options, anyone nourishing, protecting, or improving the appearance of their skin would have relied on what was available to them in nature. This included utilizing herbs, plant oils, extracts, and other natural ingredients.

Science has since confirmed what our ancestors discovered long ago: Plant oils, extracts, and other botanicals can nurture and protect troubled skin, balance oil production, and reduce the appearance of aging, all while avoiding harsh chemicals that absorb into your skin.

Why is natural skincare better?

Over the years, research has shown that the chemicals in skincare and beauty products, such as dyes, fragrances, and synthetic materials, are known to be ‘endocrine disrupters’ which have the potential to have unfavorable effects on the body.

Since research shows that most modern skincare products are formulated with synthetic materials and chemicals trying to replicate natural oils and antioxidants, people are looking for natural, yet effective, ways to not only naturally nurture their skin, but improve it.

Switching to BOTA natural skincare products not only gives you peace of mind with the topicals absorbing into your skin, but they’re also better for the environment, packed with essential natural nutrients, and leave you with glowing skin.

What ingredients to avoid in your natural skincare products

  1. ALUMINUM
    Aluminum is a toxic metal that can have estrogen-like effects in our bodies, disrupting the healthy functioning of the endocrine system. Aluminum is usually found in almost every personal care product, but especially antiperspirant deodorants.
  2. DEA (diethanolamine), MEA (Monoethanolamine), and TEA (triethanolamine)
    DEA (diethanolamine), MEA (Monoethanolamine), and TEA (triethanolamine) are clear, colorless, viscous liquids with ammonia-like odors, usually found in products that foam like facial cleansers and soaps. These liquids are also found in eye makeup, fragrances, hair products, and sunscreens.
  3. DMDM HYDANTOIN & UREA (Imidazolidinyl)
    DMDM HYDANTOIN & UREA (Imidazolidinyl) are preservatives that often release formaldehyde, which can cause joint pain, skin allergies, headaches, and loss of sleep. They’re usually found in skincare products, cosmetics, shampoos and conditioners, and even detergents.

What does CBD do for the skin?

CBD skincare products have the potential to make a significant impact on the health and appearance of your skin! If you’re new to the plant-based CBD skincare world, it’s likely that you have some questions about CBD and CBD-infused skincare products. As always, BOTA™ is happy to help. Read more to see how plant-based skincare infused with CBD can help your skin.

CBD helps with acne-prone skin

The oil produced in your skin has two main functions, to keep your skin hydrated and move dead skin cells up through your pores to the surface of your skin. Breakouts and flares are often caused by dead skin cells that fail to reach the surface and trap bacteria in your pores. The resulting inflammation affecting the appearance of your skin is evidence that your immune system is targeting (and healing) the infection.

Many conventional skincare products formulated to improve the health and appearance of blemish-prone skin contain harsh chemicals that strip the skin of its protective moisture barrier and cause unnecessary irritation. Since plant-based CBD skincare products have the potential to soothe skin irritation, many users found BOTA products provide a natural way for blemish-prone skin to get the care it needs, without any of the harsh ingredients that might cause irritation.

CBD Oil for Wrinkles and Anti-Aging

Many of the visible signs of skin aging are the result of sun exposure, free radical damage, and collagen loss. Research suggests that natural CBD skincare products have many potential benefits for maturing skin, including its potential for balancing oil production, supporting the functions that regulate collagen production, and protecting skin from free-radical damage.

CBD Oil for Sensitive Skin

Modern-day, chemical-based skincare products are often formulated to mimic the nutrients found in plant botanicals but made with synthetics. Plant-based CBD skincare products are perfect for sensitive skin because of how they’re formulated with effective, yet natural elements found in nature that are kind to your skin and the environment.

How does the skin absorb CBD?

In many ways, CBD-infused skincare products work just like any other CBD product, the tinctures, gummies, or capsules you might already be using. With plant-based CBD skincare, the therapeutic potential is delivered directly to receptors that may help influence the health and appearance of your skin.

CBD Skin Care FAQs

Of course, when trying anything new, most people have a lot of questions. We can help. Here are the answers to the most common questions asked by people starting a plant-based CBD skincare routine.

  1. CAN I PUT CBD OIL ON MY SKIN?
    Our CBD oil is called a tincture, a blend of hemp extract, and carrier oil. You can put your CBD tincture on your skin or mix your tincture with your favorite natural lotion. Still, most people prefer using CBD products formulated specifically for their skincare needs.
  2. DO ALL HEMP OIL SKINCARE PRODUCTS CONTAIN CBD?
    Although hemp oil and CBD are often used interchangeably, it’s essential to know that there are two different types of hemp oil. CBD is extracted from the stalks, stems, and flowers of industrial hemp plants. If your skincare product is made with hemp seed oil, you are not likely to achieve your desired results. Although hemp seed oil is often used in skincare products, the oil, cold-pressed from the seeds of the plant, does not contain CBD.
  3. Do CBD beauty products work?
    In many ways, CBD-infused skincare products work just like any other CBD product, the tinctures, gummies, or capsules you might already be using. With plant-based CBD skincare, the therapeutic potential is delivered directly to receptors that help influence the health and appearance of your skin. 

    When selecting CBD health and beauty products, many factors play into the overall equation, including the purity and potency of the CBD products. Many CBD skincare products contain too little CBD to have any significant impact on your skin. To protect yourself from a potentially disappointing purchase, be sure to select a natural skincare product and verify the CBD content by viewing the third-party test results.
