CBD of London is one of the UK’s first beauty and wellness brands to base their luxurious products on Cannabidiol (CBD) ingredients. For the uninitiated, Cannabidiol is found in the Cannabis and Hemp plant families and is non-psychoactive, and rich in nutrients. Follow this link to read more about CBD studies. You can imagine how excited we were at The Amazing Blog to discover these products.
CBD of London was formed by cousins who worked in the pharmaceutical industry and had the misfortune of witnessing a loved one be diagnosed with cancer. This devastating experience resulted in their research on the natural health benefits of CBD, despite the lack of accessibility in the UK. As explained by Samir Juneja, the company’s strategy director: “For too long, people have been focusing on the negative side of cannabis; but we're here to champion a natural product that not only has a health provenance dating back thousands of years but in today's labs, has proven benefits for the skin.” Samir reminds us just how historic the use of cannabis is, namely in Ancient Greece where the use of the leaves was commonplace to dress horses’ wounds.
We tried their Collagen & Retinol Anti-Ageing Cream and liked the easy, smooth and light application. We found it to be fragrance-free and neutral, the cream is also chock-a-block full of antioxidants, vitamin C, E, A, and omega 3 fatty acids, thanks to the CBD ingredient. These are the key to younger-looking skin, as they help to defend against harsh UV rays, smoke, and environmental pollutants - let the battle commence!
The Collagen & Retinol Anti-Ageing Cream’s star is vitamin A, which encourages the skin to repair itself and grow new cells. It also plays a significant role in inhibiting oil production and promoting skin cell differentiation. Their anti-ageing cream smoothes wrinkles and plumps the skin, and we certainly like that. CBD of London’s Collagen & Retinol Anti-Ageing Cream 30ml can be purchased here for £69.99.
