Whatever reason you’re here, we’re so happy that you’re letting BOTA™ show you the ropes of the plant-based CBD skincare world. This guide will provide you with everything you need to know about plant-based skincare, CBD infused products, and how to get beautiful skin, naturally! Are you ready to learn more? Let’s go!
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.
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 a BOTA natural skincare routine and 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
