CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Vegan cosmetics are growing in popularity, but manufacturers can’t use aÂ common cosmetic ingredient, beeswax, in vegan products.
Instead, many are replacing it with CBD oil, a product found in marijuana.
Allergy-sufferer Autumn Williams has sensitive eyes and decided to try a new vegan mascara.
“Itâ€™s separating my eyelashes really well,â€ť Williams said. â€śThey already look twice as thick as they did before.”
She had no idea it was infused with CBD oil.
The use of CBD and hemp oils is spreading across the beauty industry in serums, moisturizers, make-up products, nail polishes and colognes.
