Cellular Goods releases ‘The 5 A’s of Cannabinoid Skincare’


UK-based wellness company Cellular Goods recently released a white paper outlining five key benefits to cannabinoids in skincare. The paper, titled ‘The 5 A’s of Cannabinoid Skincare’, revealed that after robust scientific research, the following impacts could be evidenced in the skin:
1. Ageing Prevention (where cannabinoids could be successfully used in conjunction with other anti-ageing ingredients such as Vitamin C, retinoids and exfoliating acids);
2. Anti-Inflammatory (where CBG and CBD have been noted to prevent skin inflammation caused by UV radiation, for example);
3. Antioxidant (where in comparison to Vitamin C, CBG and to a lesser extent CBD had markedly higher antioxidants and were consequently more effective at preventing the formation of ROS — a key driver of ageing — within human dermal fibroblasts);
4. AntiBacterial (by combating blemishes without irritating the skin); and
5. Anti-Melanogenesis (with CBG lauded for its effectiveness in enhancing the anti-melanogenesis outcomes of select skin brightening actives).
