CBD for Skin Wellness – By Dr. Jason Papenfuss
First Crop’s USDA Certified Organic facial serums are formulated to introduce the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties of CBD into your daily skin regimen. By pairing First Crop’s hemp-derived CBD with specific synergistic active botanicals, our products are rooted in a multi-tiered approach to total skin wellness. Both luxurious and protective, your skin will be hydrated and shielded from damage caused by oxidative stress and pollution. Whether it is maintenance and balance, treatment and renewal, or protection and prevention, First Crop’s SLEEP Renewal and CALM Balancing facial serums fortify, protect and revitalize the health of your skin.
Cannabidiol (CBD) acts by binding with two main receptors in the skin: CB-1 and CB-2. By binding with these receptors, CBD has been shown to have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, pain-relieving, and anti-itch properties. Oxygen-free radicals are created in the skin through exposure to sun and other elements in the environment. These free radicals are key players in creating the damage to our skin that comes with aging. Focusing on the elimination and prevention of free radicals is an important step towards total skin wellness. Healthy skin is promoted through the antioxidant actions of CBD and other naturally occurring botanicals. Research has shown CBD to be a safe and effective alternative to prescription medications for skin and beauty care applications.
A hero ingredient in both our Renewal and Balancing Serums is resveratrol. Resveratrol, which is sourced from grape extract, is a plant-based polyphenol. Resveratrol is a natural antioxidant and has demonstrated anti-aging, anti-acne, and anti-inflammatory properties. When it comes to sun exposure and wrinkles caused by the sun, resveratrol appears to help before, during and after sun exposure. Applied in the morning, it can naturally help to provide protection against ultraviolet light. It has anti-inflammatory properties to minimize the damage and redness caused by the sun. Then, at the end of the day, this antioxidant can help to regenerate skin damaged by the sun during the day.
Our CALM Balancing Serum should be incorporated into your daily morning routine to prepare your skin for the day ahead. A proprietary blend of grape seed, avocado, and evening primrose oils, hydrates your skin while reducing inflammation and the appearance of redness. The pairing of these active botanicals with CBD and resveratrol results in a powerful and luxurious daily treatment that protects, nourishes and refreshes your skin.
Our SLEEP nighttime Renewal Serum rejuvenates and replenishes your skin. In this formulation, our CBD and resveratrol is enhanced with active botanicals jojoba, argan and grape seed oils to restore even the most sensitive skins to a natural healthy glow. This transformative serum hydrates, nourishes and detoxifies your skin to reverse the effects of stress, environmental pollution and aging.
