Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the many cannabinoids found in the Cannabis Sativa plant and is a compound that has been used in many supplement and cosmetic applications for such things as Inflammation to insomnia.

When it comes dermatological conditions, CBD has also been getting some press. Some good, some not so good, but what is clear is that there is a growing body of evidence that suggests that CBD can be beneficial for skin conditions such as eczema, skin psoriasis and acne. (5)

As explained in an article published on The National Eczema Association site:

it has long been observed that cannabinoids possess anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and anti-itch qualities. There are reports of direct improvement of AD with topical cannabinoids. A recent study demonstrated that a molecule interacting with the endocannabinoid system inhibited mast cell activation. Mast cells are immune cells that release histamine when activated, which leads to intense itching and inflammation.’ (3)

Recent studies suggest the existence of a functional Endocannabinoid System (ECS) in the skin and it’s been claimed that the main physiological function of this cutaneous ‘ECS’ is to constitutively control the proper and well‐balanced proliferation, differentiation and survival, as well as immune competence and tolerance of skin cells. So, if this delicate balance is then disrupted, then this can facilitate the development of multiple pathological conditions and diseases of the skin. (21, 22) – An in vitro study performed in 2014 found that cannabidiol has lipostatic, antiproliferative and anti‐inflammatory effects which may make this non‐psychotrophic cannabinoid agent a promising therapy for acne vulgaris.24 [2]

It has also been suggested that CBD’s universal ‘sebostatic action’ is accompanied by substantial ant-inflammatory effects and so therefore may provide supportive action in dermatological formulations. (1, 2, 24–30). [3]

High-quality derma products containing CBD could be the worth serious consideration, but CBD is not the whole story here …..

 

Colloidal Oatmeal

For hundreds of years, Oatmeal has been used as a soothing agent to relieve itchy and irritated skin and today colloidal oatmeal is used in various product types from moisturisers to shaving gels.  Colloidal oatmeal is rich in starches and beta-glucan which explains the protective and water-holding functions of oat and the content of various phenol types explains its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Its many functional properties make colloidal oatmeal an ideal support for cleansing moisturising, skin protection as well as a soothing and anti-inflammatory agent.

As a natural anti irritant, this ingredient has been pronounced as safe and effective in Europe and so was a natural choice for Truverra as a key ingredient in its Derma range of Class 1 Medical Devices- all approved in Europe.
