Except for masks during a pandemic, the skin on our faces is never protected by clothing. It endures wind, sun, and climate-controlled indoor air. It is also always in motion. Every time we smile, frown, or talk, our muscles and skin follow familiar patterns that eventually become fine lines and wrinkles.
A high-quality face cream creates an invisible protective barrier to help maintain our skin's moisture and elasticity. It also penetrates below the surface to slow down and reverse the signs of aging.
More than 25.5 million Americans use face cream, but did you know that 64% of what you put on your skin is absorbed into your body? Skin is an organ! Ingredients in some of the popular moisturizing products are synthetic and full of chemicals – certainly nothing you would eat or want in your bloodstream.
At Jampha, our Vibrant Face Topical combines CBD, plant terpenes, plant extracts, essential oils, and natural emulsifiers like shea butter and macadamia nut oil to create a rich, all-natural face cream that protects and nourishes your skin without unwanted chemicals.
Here, we highlight a few of the key ingredients and look at research on why and how they benefit your skin.
CBD for Skin:
A growing body of research shows that CBD oil can benefit our skin in several ways.
Acne can be a problem for people of every age. Compounds in CBD are oil-reducing, anti-inflammatory, and antimicrobial – all of which can help manage and limit acne.
Human sebocytes are the cells that create sebum; a waxy, oily substance meant to maintain our skin's health. A balance of sebum helps protect the skin, but too much can cause acne. A study done in 2014 shows that CBD can stop sebocytes from creating too much sebum.
CBD may also help reduce the appearance of acne scars, according to a study done in 2019.
2. Dryness and Irritation
CBD's natural anti-inflammatory and potent anti-fungal properties can help reduce triggers that cause eczema, dermatitis, and psoriasis.
Studies also show that CBD may reduce skin dryness and itching.
3. Aging and Wrinkles
Oxidative stress is a significant contributor to the appearance of age on our skin. The antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of CBD can help protect from oxidative stress and help fight visible signs of aging.
Essential Oils and Plant Extracts for Skin
Each of the ingredients in our Vibrant Face Topical was carefully chosen to support skin health. Here we highlight a few of the essential oils and plant extracts included.
Cedarwood Essential Oil
Cedarwood oil fights acne with anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. Other benefits include: lessen the appearance of scars, helping minor wounds heal, and reducing eczema symptoms.
Organic Lavender Essential Oil and Lavender Flower
The skin benefits of lavender essential oil and lavender flower may surprise you.
As natural anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory, lavender helps prevent and heal acne. Its anti-fungal properties help fight eczema and psoriasis.
Full of antioxidants, lavender helps protect your skin from the free radicals contributing to fine lines and wrinkles.
Initial studies show lavender oil accelerates the wound healing process by promoting the healing of skin tissue.
Chamomile Flower and Roman Chamomile
Roman chamomile and the more common German chamomile have slightly different appearances and chemical compositions, but both are good for your skin.
Applied topically, both types of chamomile reduce pain and inflammation. They are commonly used to minimize skin irritation and mitigate rashes like eczema.
Known for its stress-relieving and pain-relieving properties, frankincense also treats dry skin and reduces the appearance of wrinkles, age spots, scars, and stretch marks.
ProVitamin B5, also called D panthenol, is popular in skincare products because of its multiple benefits, including:
Deeply hydrating skin, improving softness and elasticity
Enhances the barrier function of skin and enhances tissue regeneration
Regenerating damaged skin structure and improving tissue regeneration
Helps rejuvenate sun-damaged skin
Regulates hydration and improves skin texture and tone
Fades away acne spots and aids in clearing and enhancing skin tone and radiance
Plant Terpenes for Skin:
Jampha's Vibrant Face Topical contains seven isolated plant terpenes to support CBD's skin benefits.
A-bisabolol is a frequent ingredient in moisturizers and personal care products due to its researched skincare benefits. Studies on alpha-bisabolol demonstrate its antioxidant, anti-aging, and wound healing properties.
Eugenol helps fight local infection with its gentle anesthetic and antiseptic properties. Studies also show it to work as an anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant – all of which are good for your skin.
Linalool is not just a potent anti-inflammatory; it can help kill the bacteria that causes acne.
Alpha & Beta-Pinene
Multiple studies show pinene fights infection and reduces inflammation, and is effective against resistant bacteria. It also may help diminish the appearance of acne scars.
Terpinolene helps reduce oxidative damage to slow signs of aging.
It is an anti-inflammatory that has also been shown to kill bacteria.
Limonene's powerful sedative properties are said to be calming to the skin. It is also an effective antimicrobial that has been shown to inhibit the growth of skin tumors.
Rich, Natural, Healthy Emulsifiers:
Although we do not recommend that you eat our Vibrant Face Topical, almost all of the oils we include are rich, natural oils you could find or use in your kitchen. They include:
Organic shea butter
Macadamia nut oil
Organic avocado fruit oil
Oil infusion of calendula flower
Organic evening primrose oil
Meadowfoam seed oil
Organic neem seed oil and organic jojoba seed oil, also included, are not used for cooking but are known for their remarkable skincare benefits.
Used for centuries in India, studies show neem seed oil is a promising agent to treat thinning skin, dryness, and wrinkles.
Jojoba oil seals your skin with a protective layer to help maintain moisture. It kills bacteria and fights fungus, is a powerful antioxidant, and is hypoallergenic.
Nourishment for Vibrant Skin:
Don't fall for slick marketing and products filled with chemicals. You can improve the look and feel of your skin naturally with Jampha's nourishing and protective Vibrant Face CBD Lotion.
Although rich with nutritious oils and plant-based ingredients, our Vibrant Face Lotion does not feel greasy. It provides all-day or all-night moisturizing with a lightweight and smooth feel that you can wear alone or under make-up. Use it on your face, hands, or any area that needs healing and hydration.
