What is CBD Cosmetics?
Organic CBD cosmetics are used like conventional cosmetic products. You don't need to swallow CBD oil or CBD capsules but simply apply the cosmetics to the skin and rub them in.
CBD Cosmetics consist of two crucial components: the active ingredients (CBD, aloe vera, sage, vitamins, plant-based cleansers, etc.) and the carriers.
We at enecta have developed two lines of topically applicable CBD products:
The green organic cosmetic line: classic care products reinvented with the help of CBD, containing the best cosmetic ingredients and the full power of hemp.
The therapeutic C-Line: oils for skin problems (e.g. acne, neurodermatitis, dry and irritated skin, etc.). In addition, we recommend our gentle CBD cleanser.
Finally, the CBD content is decisive for the effectiveness of CBD cosmetics. The therapeutic skin oils contain on average significantly more CBD than the cosmetic products. For us, it is also crucial that our products are well tolerated. This is why they are regularly subject to the usual cosmetic controls.

Effect of CBD Cosmetics
What benefits do CBD cosmetics offer? This is the crucial question. The number of studies is minimal, although some have already shown that CBD works on the skin. In any case, our users consistently and independently report the positive effects.
Therefore, we would like to give you an overview of the beneficial properties of CBD cosmetics:
Free radicals threaten your skin health, and only so-called antioxidants can oxidise them, making sure that they can no longer damage your body. CBD is a natural antioxidant and can therefore help to maintain your skin vital and healthy. When applied to the skin, CBD cosmetics form a "protective film", shielding it from external influences. Furthermore, CBD is said to regulate cell division, which can help prevent certain types of cancer.
However, the latter has not yet been proven by studies. What is certain is that CBD can neutralise free radicals and is even a better antioxidant than vitamin C (up to 50 % more effective).
CBD creams - a natural anti-aging effect
Our CBD cosmetics - especially the CBD Anti Aging Creams - are designed to maintain your skin youthful and healthy. They nourish and moisturize the skin, which accordingly looks smooth, radiant, and restored, reducing wrinkles and bags under eyes.
A convenient feature is that the anti-aging cream can be incorporated into the skincare routine as a make-up base. This way, you can do something good for yourself every day.
Cannabidiol supports healthy nails, cuticles, and hair.
CBD oil is particularly suitable for nails and hair. CBD is said to strenghten the nails and help regulate the growth of cuticles. If you want to nourish and moisturise your hair with CBD, take a few drops of oil and rub it into your scalp. Afterwards, we recommend rinsing with shampoo and water.
Using CBD cosmetics as energising massage oil / soothing body lotion
It seems paradoxical, but it is true: CBD can have a vitalising and relaxing effect at the same time. Are you faced with tension or painful spots on your skin? Then you should try one of our CBD cosmetics.
In such cases, we suggest combining the application with an additional relaxing massage. Cannabidiol is said to relieve pain by interacting with the CB-1 and CB-2 receptors that are part of the skin's endocannabinoid system.
CBD skin oil against psoriasis and eczema
Some studies and numerous testimonials suggest that CBD cosmetics can relieve psoriasis and eczema. Psoriasis, in particular, is caused by an excessive proliferation of keratinocytes. Through a (complex) chemical process, CBD can positively influence this "overproduction". For the same reason, CBD cosmetics are also said to help against eczema.
CBD cosmetics can regulate sebum production
Sebaceous glands are often responsible for irritated skin, irritation, and redness. CBD cosmetics can reduce sebum production by inhibiting the enzyme sebocyt, which would otherwise cause the glands to produce more sebum than necessary. CBD is a sebum aggregator that can simultaneously counteract the inflammatory reaction and support skin regeneration.
In addition, CBD cosmetics can inhibit the proliferation of microorganisms causing skin rash. In case of doubt, uncertainty, or questions, you should always consult a dermatologist.
CBD cosmetics also help with (skin) inflammation
The body is only healthy when the endo-cannabinoid system is in balance. Unfortunately, the skin is often neglected, although CBD has been proven to have an anti-inflammatory effect. As a natural anti-inflammatory, CBD can support the skin's response to inflammation and help to manage skin diseases such as dermatitis or acne.
Uses of CBD cosmetics
Daily skin care is essential to keep the skin healthy and glowing. Cannabidiol is a non-intoxicating compound that allows the skin to benefit from anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. The effect is caused by its interaction with the cannabinoid receptors in the skin, which are part of the body's endocannabinoid system. This interaction ensures that pain, irritation, inflammation, and skin diseases such as neurodermatitis are relieved.
CBD cosmetics can, among other things:
Soothe the skin
Regulate sebum production
Prevent premature skin ageing
Nourish and moisturise the skin
Benefits of CBD Cosmetics
Cannabidiol is a natural active ingredient whose beneficial effects are well known. In this section we have summarized the findings of initial studies and field reports for you:
Cannabidiol inhibits the production of keratinocytes and sebocytes. In this way, it can counteract skin problems such as acne or psoriasis.
CBD creams and oils can be used successfully for psoriasis and eczema.
CBD cosmetics are usually natural products.
CBD cosmetics can be easily integratedninto everyday life.
CBD has a soothing effect on the skin and can also help with joint pain and muscle
By strengthening and refreshing the skin, CBD helps prevent premature ageing.
Cannabidiol is also said to have antioxidant properties. It can therefore keep free radicals in check and make an important contribution to the well-being of the skin.
How to use CBD Cosmetics
How to use CBD cosmetics depends on the products you choose. The items that are part of our organic cosmetics line can be applied in the same way as ordinary skincare products - not to be compared with taking CBD oil and CBD capsules.
Apply a small amount of CBD Cosmetics to the skin and gently rub it in. As soon as the cream, balm, or serum has been absorbed by the skin, you can stop rubbing or continue enjoying a pleasant massage. By the way, CBD does not even pass through the top layer of the skin and doesn’t, therefore, reach the bloodstream.
However, this is not a bad thing, as it is already utilised by the skin's endocannabinoid system. Users report that the effect kicks in after just a few minutes and lasts for
up to eight hours.
Our cosmetic products are generally well tolerated, and you can apply them several times a day if necessary. We recommend washing your skin with water before applying a cosmetic product to it.
CBD Cosmetics dosage
Since CBD acts locally on the skin, you don't need much of it. This means that a supposedly "low" dosage of 100 mg CBD - or even less - can be completely sufficient in a CBD cosmetic product.
Everybody is different and reacts individually to CBD. Slowly work your way up to your feel-good dose. By the way, there is no danger of a CBD overdose. Initially, a small dab on the skin is always enough to notice the first positive, vitalising effect.
If you want to use CBD for skin diseases, you should use a special therapeutic skin oil, as it contains significantly more CBD (up to 24 % CBD - 2400 mg CBD in 10 ml).
Depending on the severity of the case, we recommend different CBD concentrations. For beginners, we would always recommend our C 1000 mg CBD skin care oil. It is pleasant for the skin and contains 1 gram of pure CBD.
However, if you intend to use the oil to take care of your skin on a daily basis, a comparatively low CBD content is sufficient (e.g., 50 mg in a lip balm or 350 mg in moisturiser). For those who want to enjoy the full power of cannabidiol, we have our organic anti-aging cream containing 700 mg CBD in just 50 ml!
Side effects of CBD Cosmetics
Transparency regarding possible side effects is particularly important to us. Generally speaking, CBD is considered to be almost free of side effects. Even when taking very high doses, according to studies and experience reports, one does not have to fear any serious side effects.
Regarding CBD cosmetics, it must also be emphasised that cannabidiol does not even enter the bloodstream. The risk of possible side effects is, therefore, negligible.
However, our recommendation for CBD cosmetics is the same as for oil: approach it slowly, start with a low dosage, and, if necessary, increase it step by step.
If side effects occur, you should seek medical advice.
What should I look for when buying CBD cosmetics?
Three criteria are particularly important when choosing cosmetic products with CBD:
They should contain only natural ingredients (e.g., witch hazel, sage, and almond oil).
Quality and purity should be ensured by independent analyses.
The CBD should come from organically grown hemp plants.
With enecta you play it safe. Our cosmetics contain only CBD that we extract from our organically grown cannabis plants. During the manufacturing process, we do not use any chemical additives and rely on the power of Mother Nature.
To remove any doubt about quality and purity, third-party laboratories regularly analyze our CBD cosmetics.
It is also essential to choose a product that suits your needs. For skin rashes linked, for example, to psoriasis, we recommend the therapeutic C line. If you want to relax your
muscles after exercise, the CBD body cream would be the best choice.
Finally, we recommend our anti-aging cream with CBD to moisturise your skin and protect it from premature aging.
What are CBD cosmetics made from?
Our CBD products are 100% produced by us in Italy. We only use cannabis from our own cultivation - and take care of every single step, from sawing the seeds to harvesting the CBD buds and extracting the active ingredients. That makes us proud!
Our CBD cosmetics are also THC-free and, therefore, safe and legal. Furthermore, our products are regularly tested by third-party labs. In addition to our CBD, only selected natural ingredients that positively affect your skin make it into our CBD
These include, among others:
Coconut oil, jojoba oil, sweet almond oil
Natural vitamin E, etherified vitamin C
How to determine CBD cosmetics quality
The CBD we use for our cosmetics comes from our organic hemp and is free of herbicides, pesticides, and heavy metals. To achieve the highest possible quality, we have built our manufacturing process, which we control entirely, around the following guidelines for quality assurance:
Good agricultural and collection practice (GACP)
Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP)
Hazard analysis and critical control points
On top of this are the in-depth quality analyses carried out at regular intervals by independent third-party laboratories. Thus, we can be sure that the THC content is always below the legally permitted threshold.
How are CBD cosmetics made?
Cannabidiol, also the one used to produce cosmetic products, can be obtained through various processes. One possibility is to heat the flowers and leaves of the hemp plant to about 120 degrees and thus convert the CBDA into CBD.
But you can also opt for butane or high-proof alcohol extraction. Finally, it is possible to use liquid CO₂, which separates the compounds, allowing you to filter out CBD in the form of powder.
No matter how it is extracted, CBD remains a natural compound that, blended with other botanicals, helps to keep your skin healthy and strong.
CBD cosmetics testimonials
Testimonials about CBD cosmetics are generally positive. Many appreciate the vitalising effect of CBD creams and lotions. Another frequently mentioned point is the support CBD skin oil offers in the case of acne, eczema, and psoriasis.
Finally, one reads that CBD cosmetics can help reduce wrinkles. The experience of users is in line with previous research results. In 2014, for example, researchers showed that CBD reduces sebum production and can thus help in the treatment of acne.
A study published in 2019 examined the effect of CBD on skin ageing and found that it can reduce oxidative stress, helping improve skin elasticity.
Legal situation of CBD cosmetics
There is no doubt anymore: purchasing and using CBD cosmetics is legal in the UK, the USA, throughout the EU, as well as in Canada and Australia. And that is only logical.
This active ingredient has no intoxicating effect, is considered almost free of side effects, and does not cause dependence.
One thing should be noted, however: CBD is not a medicine and must not be labelled as such. Consequently, it is available without a prescription.
Answers to frequently asked questions about our CBD cosmetics:
That CBD can relax and relieve painis no longer a secret. However, CBD as a skin booster isstill a niche, and it is not surprising that many questionsarise. Here we have answered the most frequent ones.
As the name suggests, CBD cosmetics are skincare products that, in addition to typical botanicals, contain cannabidiol, an active ingredient extracted from the hemp plant.
CBD is said to have many positive properties, and initial studies show that it can have a beneficial effect on skin health.
Users unanimously report an improvement in skin elasticity and texture, which can be attributed to the abovementioned effects. CBD cosmetics are not food supplements.
Classic cosmetic products with CBD are designed for topical application. Sounds complicated, but it simply means that they are designed to be applied directly to the skin and rubbed in.
According to studies, they only penetrate the epidermis to such an extent that hardly any CBD enters the bloodstream. And this is the point, as the CBD is expected to affect the skin's surface directly. It has been discovered that the skin also has an endocannabinoid system (ECS), which plays a crucial role in regulating specific physiological processes.
Accordingly, the application of cannabidiol to the skin is a sensible choice.
As there are no conclusive research results, we generally advise against using CBD
cosmetics during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
Natural ingredients of the highest quality extracted from hemp and classic skincare botanicals: organic CBD cosmetics combine the best of both worlds. Although more research has to be conducted, several studies show that CBD can have a positive and measurable effect on the skin.
Accordingly, you can do yourself two favours with just one product:
take care of your skin with the high-quality ingredients of our cosmetics and benefit from the effect of cannabidiol at the same time. A literally healthy mixture!
CBD cosmetics are becoming increasingly popular, and the selection is accordingly large. We at enecta have specialised in the (daily) basics and currently offer:
CBD anti-aging cream
CBD face lotion and neck cleanser
CBD face cream

When choosing natural CBD cosmetics, it is crucial to know which other ingredients they contain. CBD cosmetics always contain only a small percentage of pure cannabidiol - the rest is the carrier substance, so to speak.
We make sure that it also has a positive effect on your skin, establishing a synergy with CBD. In addition to these cosmetic products, you will also find skin care oil with cannabidiol in different concentrations.
These articles can also be used for skin diseases such as dermatitis, acne, or psoriasis. Delivery and shipping are discreet and fast.
If you experience side effects after using CBD Cosmetics, we recommend first cleaning the affected area with soap and water. In principle, any side effects will disappear by themselves within a few hours. If this does not happen, you should consult a doctor.
