Cannabis is a trendy ingredient in almost everything these days. It is in food, drinks, cosmetics, health supplements, and even fashion prints. It of course may be a “post-prohibition” hype: with the plant being a social taboo in most countries for so long, embracing it as part of normal life, in public can bring about a sense of liberation and freedom. On the other hand, cannabis enthusiasts are convinced that the plant has a promise to help us against many diseases, as well as be effective in maintaining good health, well being and glowing skin. What should we make of the cannabis trend in skincare products: are brands just jumping on the fashion bandwagon or can cannabis truly have unique positive effects on the state and appearance of our skin? We’ve reviewed the evidence so you can make an informed choice for yourself.
Oil just by the sound of it feels like something our skin would like. It feels nourishing and you know that just the consistency of it would relieve the uncomfortable sensation of tight, dry skin.

And we enjoy learning about a new hyped oil every season: marula, argan, jojoba, rosehip - just to name a few from the last couple of years. But what many skincare lovers do not know is that the plant oil with the most proven benefits for the skin is also the cheapest and most commonly available one: it is sunflower seed oil. You might wonder: how come this non-fancy oil is better than the expensive alternatives we hear all about from skincare brands?
