By now you’ve probably heard of hemp and its non-psychoactive derivative CBD (no, you don’t get high!) that is being used for a wide variety of applications from pain relief to treating insomnia and soothing sore muscles to calming inflamed skin and treating acne. Suffice it to say, CBD is taking the beauty and health industry by storm. While there is a lot of buzz out there regarding this new-kid-on-the-block wonder ingredient, not all CBD products are created equal.

Bonus: Us! (STYLEFOX Beauty)
We might be a little bias here, but we think our hemp-based Super Greens Detox Mask and Super Greens Clarifying Skin Booster are pretty amazing. While our speciality is in preservative-free vegan skincare, we hope to add more hemp infused products to our lineup. We truly believe in the hemp plant’s efficacy to calm inflammation and rejuvenate skin (just see the before and after photo below) and we’re excited to continue developing products to meet the ever growing demand for hemp-based skin care. stylefox.com
Excellent list! Papa & Barkley and Fine Healing Goods are definitely worth trying. Will have to explore some of the other brands listed here.
