There’s no denying that Cannabidiol, more commonly known as CBD, is all the rage RN.
When it comes to skincare and beauty, cannabis is a popular and potent ingredient. In fact, the use of cannabis oil as an ingredient in skincare dates all the way back to Cleopatra, who supposedly used the stuff to keep her skin looking young. Since then, cannabis has gone on to be used in a huge amount of well-known creams and moisturisers in the form of hemp oil due to its deeply hydrating properties. CBD, on the other hand, offers skincare benefits that go well beyond hydration, helping to neutralise oxidative stress from pollution, UV and other environmental aggressors.
And now the miracle substance has found its way into sleep drops, which are flying off shelves. Rodial has just launched CBD sleep drops for the face exclusively in Selfridges that have not only sold out three times since the launch, but thereâ€™s a waitlist of 1,000 during the restocking period. Sign us up.
â€śWe canâ€™t keep the product on the shelves in Selfridges, the demand has been crazy,” Maria Hatzistefanis, Founder and CEO of the Rodial Group, told us. “People are keen to try CBD, which is truly one of the most effective ingredients on the market, and we are seeing a lot of men wanting to try the product. Selling out three times in two weeks in Selfridges has been incredible; CBD Sleep Drops have broken all of our sales records.”
The CBD infused into the facial oil works as an anti-inflammatory, reducing the appearance of redness, calming the skin, whilst also relieving puffiness. The drops are also infused with vegan collagen to boost the skinâ€™s elasticity, a Squalene substance which creates the look of hydrated and plump skin, as well as a plant extract, Purslane, which helps with hydration and skin cell regeneration.
Intended to be a therapeutic addition to your life, it also comes in a mini travel friendly 10ml bottle.
Rodialâ€™s CBD sleep drops are the latest addition to their Booster Drops collection, targeting specific skin conditions.
