What is CBD?
Mantra CBD Sheet Masks contain the highest quality CBD to enhance your skin, but what exactly is CBD and why use it?
The scientific name for CBD is cannabidiol and it is among the primary natural compounds found in the cannabis plant. CBD can be extracted from one of two sources. It can be derived from psychoactive cannabis plants, commonly known as marijuana, or from industrial hemp, a type of cannabis plant. It is such an important cosmetic discovery that it is an essential component in Mantra Masks premier line of CBD facial sheet masks that are produced exclusively in the USA.
The hemp variety is now legal in every state in the U.S. with the signing of the 2018 Farm Bill ending decades of controversy of hemp having been inappropriately tangled in legislation that prohibited forms of cannabis. It contains less than .03% of THC, and as such is considered non-psychoactive and cannot be used as a drug.
What it can do for skin is nothing short of remarkable. Our bodies naturally produce compounds like those found in CBD due to cell receptors in our bodies called the endocannabinoid system. CBD is naturally attracted to our skin, and is lipophilic, meaning that it is able to penetrate the epidermis. As it binds with these receptors, it generates tremendous anti-inflammatory effects on the skin. Mantra Mask offers a series of specialty CBD sheet masks that are designed to penetrate your skin and target the special needs of your complexion.
CBD applied topically reduces redness and inflammation and can help with skin conditions such as rosecea, rashes, irritation, and acne. Mantra Mask offers the CBD Blemish Sheet Mask and the CBD Repair Sheet Mask for these conditions.
CBD can also reduce oil production to balance the condition of the skin and can provide a mattifying effect. These qualities make it excellent for all skin types, but especially those with sensitive skin. The anti-inflammatory benefits of this natural addition to skin care have been well researched and well documented, and even those with dry skin can enjoy CBD skin care as Mantra Masks are developed to include emollient oils that enhance dry skin.
The anti-oxidants in CBD are believed to prevent oxidative damage to the skin caused by sun exposure and air pollutants, as well as to help retard the aging process by preventing wrinkles and fine lines from forming, and hyper-pigmentation from occurring with absolutely no side effects reported.
The anti-oxidants in CBD are more powerful than vitamins E and C and can repair and speed the healing of damaged skin. Mantra Mask CBD Anti-Aging Sheet Mask, CBD Collagen Sheet Mask and CBD After Sun Sheet Mask contain the powerful CBD agent along with other ingredients to target the needs of your complexion and achieve the skin of your dreams.
