The Full Spectrum Hemp Oil that goes into our CBD skincare comes from hemp organically grown and hand-harvested by Montana Pure Botanicals owner, Anne Sorensen.
Hemp produces over five hundred therapeutic phytochemicals. Each of them has unique healing properties, and research suggests that used together they enhance each other's beneficial effects.
Some phytochemicals such as the cannabinoid Cannabidiol (CBD) are relatively stable and heat resistant, making them easy to extract. Others such as terpenes, flavonoids, and amino acids are more volatile and heat-sensitive, making them likely to vaporize and thus difficult to preserve.
To capture a complete profile of even the most finicky therapeutic phytochemicals, we use cold supercritical CO2 extraction, which creates a rich, unrefined hemp oil that is pure, vibrant, and packed with beneficial compounds.
Our skincare products are packed with powerful youth-preserving antioxidants to help reverse free radical damage and offset free radical environmental pollutants. Antioxidants are molecules that can donate electrons to neutralize cell-damaging free radicals without becoming free radicals themselves.
Free radicals, an unavoidable byproduct of cell metabolism, are unstable molecules with an odd number of electrons. Desperately seeking stability, they steal electrons from other molecules, which then become free radicals and electron thieves themselves.
Antioxidants prevent this from becoming a chain reaction that damages skin cells, causes inflammation, and weakens the body's first line of immune defense.
Phenolics are a group of molecules with antioxidant capacities and various healing properties. Phenolic compounds found in hemp include cannabinoids, terpenes, stilbenes, phloroglucinols, flavonoids, and others.
In addition to their free radical scavenging abilities, phenolics interact with hundreds of molecular targets in the body to exert regenerative effects, promote collagen production, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, alleviate acne, and more.
Oils are comprised of lipids or fats that serve a water-holding function in the skin. The oils in our products are non-comedogenic, meaning they will act as refattening agents without clogging your pores. Oils are also lipophilic, so they can soak deep into the skin where they trap moisture while preventing toxins, pollutants, and bacteria from entering the body.
A balanced blend of hydrating omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids both of which are crucial to skin function and appearance. Omegas play a crucial role in the skin’s structural integrity, barrier function, inflammatory response, visible signs of aging, UV damage, and much more.
Hemp plants contain all 20 amino acids necessary to make a complete protein chain. Research suggests that amino acids applied topically may be readily absorbed. Amino acids found in the outermost layer of skin, the stratum corneum, have been found to improve the penetration of water to lipids, which decreases the appearance of wrinkles and plumps the skin.
Amino acids have been found to enhance skin health, immunity, and regeneration by playing a role in stabilizing cell membranes, antioxidation, and increasing the skin's natural moisturizing factor (NMF), a compound known for improving skin firmness and hydration.
Topically applied vitamins, especially when applied together, have been found to boost skin quality through antioxidative, photo-protective, anti-aging, and anti-pigmentary effects. For instance, evidence supports that topical vitamin A can treat damage following sun exposure while vitamin B3 has been shown to increase collagen production and reduce dark spots.
Beautiful skin begins from within. Complete your skincare routine by placing a few drops of our CBD-rich full spectrum hemp oil under your tongue for four minutes to assure maximum absorption. Restore, rejuvenate, and preserve your youth with Montana Pure Botanicals.
Yes, CBD can be absorbed through skin pores when applied topically. CBD does not penetrate deep enough to enter the bloodstream unless it is in the form of a transdermal CBD product. Topical CBD interacts with various receptors, ion channels, and enzymes in the top layer of skin.
CBD is absorbed through skin pores. When applied topically CBD penetrates the skin’s top most layer, where it acts locally on endocannabinoid receptors as well as other receptors, ion channels, and enzymes. It does not enter the bloodstream, something which can only be done by transdermal CBD products.
CBD benefits skin by affecting excess oil production, inflammation, free radicals, collagen, and cell regeneration. CBD oil can help soothe skin and reduce redness. It’s anti-inflammatory properties and ability to neutralize free radicals may reduce collagen breakdown and help certain skin conditions.
CBD interacts with various receptors, ion channels, and enzymes in skin cells. Some are part of the endocannabinoid system, which maintains homeostasis or balance across all systems. Others such as 5-HT1A or TPRV1 receptors are part of cell-regenerative, anti-inflammatory and pain pathways.
CBD is an antioxidant with structures containing unpaired electrons. Antioxidants use these unpaired electrons to neutralize raging free radicals and prevent cell damage. Antioxidants like CBD interrupt free radical chain reactions, capturing free radicals or transforming them into less active forms.
Many skincare ingredients are antioxidants with anti-inflammatory properties, but CBD is also able to act on the endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is critical to skin homeostasis and barrier function. Its dysregulation has been implicated in acne, atopic dermatitis, hair growth/loss, and hyper/hypo-pigmentation.
As an acne treatment, CBD can be applied by massaging CBD oil directly onto the affected area. Acne is a pore disorder caused by a build-up of dirt, oil and dead cells. Topical CBD is absorbed through pores and can thus exert its anti-acne effects at the source of the problem.
CBD may decrease the amount, severity, and redness of acne, a pore disorder that causes inflammation and pimples. CBD exhibits antimicrobial activity against the acne-related bacteria C. acnes, balances excessive sebum or oil production and acts on anti-inflammatory pathways.
No, CBD does not cause acne. In fact, research suggests it may do the opposite. CBD’s actions on anti-inflammatory pathways, balancing effects on skin cell oil production, and anti-microbial activity against the acne-related bacteria C. acnes, may help reduce acne formation and severity.
