This ingredient comes from the Cannabis sativa plant. It is a 0.5% extract that contains cannabidiol (CBD).
Benefits: 0.5% Cannabis sativa liposome extract softens and conditions the skin thanks to its content of amino acids and other nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, etc.
The skin is continuously subjected to a low-intensity inflammation process, a defense mechanism of the body to respond to external aggressions (temperature, solar radiation, irritants, oxidants, free radicals, etc.), facilitate the repair of tissues and its normal operation. This process produces a degradation of collagen and elastin, leading to the appearance of wrinkles and aging of the skin. Substances such as CBD, along with other components present in hemp, which act synergistically, balance these processes, helping collagen and elastin not deteriorate.
Liposomes are hollow microscopic spheres formed by ordered layers of phospholipids (Figure) whose structure resembles the lipid double layer of cells. Their structure allows them to transport active principles to the interior of the epidermis and their similarity to the cell wall gives them a high compatibility with the skin and better transfer of active substances. Thus, for example, the liposome extract of hemp has been tested in vitro in human fibroblast cell cultures (interleukin-6 ELISA) obtaining a reduction in interleukin-6 levels greater than that achieved by oil with CBD (without liposomes). Interleukin-6 is a cytokine-like protein that is related to inflammatory processes.
Origin: The Cannabis sativa plant is native to Asia and evidence of its use has been found dating back to 3000 A. The varieties whose cultivation is legal are called industrial hemp6, and a great variety of products can be obtained from them.
In this variety, its CBD content stands out, one of the 113 cannabinoids found in cannabis, this being not psychoactive, unlike THC. The seeds contain 34% protein and are considered a very complete food, for this reason it is a raw material of great value to obtain extracts with excellent cosmetic properties.
The extract used by NAOBAY is produced through an advanced procedure that generates liposomes that encapsulate the active principles, improving their action and availability to the skin.
