Plant-Based Healing for the Skin - by Peter Boehm
It may come as a surprise, but cannabis-derived skin treatments applied directly to the skin can greatly improve skin health.
HumanKind Skincare’s Founder, Jennifer Ford explains, “The skin is our largest organ. It’s our defense barrier from the external environment, protecting us from UV radiation, bacteria, pollution viruses, etc. Our skin is an external expression of our internal health and is a great barometer showing us things are affecting our health both internally and externally. For this alone, it’s important to keep skin healthy.”
Full Spectrum Hemp Extract can reduce pain, alleviate the symptoms of conditions like eczema and psoriasis, reduce oxidation in skin cells Anti-Aging). HumanKind’s formulas use whole food ingredients for real vitamins, minerals and enzymes to maximize nutrition, bioavailability and absorption. We only use organic, cold pressed, full spectrum plant extracts and oils for maximum efficacy and benefits. HumanKind has developed formulas for men, women and children of all ethnicities and sin types. There is a wide array of products from body lotion, magnesium Spray, face serums, to beard oil for men!
Our skin is acidic and needs to stay PH balanced, from a PH or 4.5 to 6. Our skin also needs daily nourishment of vitamins, minerals, protein and fatty acids.
Hemp Seed Oil is full of naturally occurring vitamins, minerals, enzymes and fatty acids that hydrate, relieve inflammation and nourish the skin. The benefits of Hemp Seed Oil for skin can be felt almost instantly.
Recent research has shown that cannabinoid receptors are found on cells throughout the skin. Ford continues “cannabinoid receptors engage with our skin’s immune cells to help control inflammatory response. When you apply activated cannabis directly to the skin in the form of a topical, you’re directly engaging cannabinoid receptors to help our bodies heal.”
As part owner of CBD Wellness Depot, one of Michigan’s premier CBD distribution companies, Ford noticed many CBD products offered in dispensaries and natural wellness stores were using plastic containers and, even worse, known chemical carcinogens as preservatives.
Our skin absorbs these chemicals through the skin and then enters the bloodstream. These chemicals do more harm to your immune system and your skin than the intended use. I believe in creating products that are good for people and the planet.
All our packaging is recyclable and our ingredients are thoughtfully sourced for minimal environmental impact.
Be Human, Be Kind, Be Both!
