Kiskanu's Face Oil is Light & Hydrating
This CBD Face Oil is a blend of moisturizing cold pressed sunflower, argan, coconut and jojoba oils plus soothing CBD**, calendula, rose geranium, lavender, and wild carrot to keep your skin supple and soft.
Let’s talk about topicals.
Kiskanu’s expertise lies in creating topicals. Rather than being used internally, topicals are applied to the surface of the skin to interact directly with that area for targeted effects. Instead of entering the bloodstream for full body effects, the CBD and other cannabinoids interact with endocannabinoid receptors in the skin. They are typically used for localized pain or soreness, inflammation, skin irritations, etc. Click here to learn more about how topicals work.
Topicals for the Face
Your face produces oils of its own to keep your skin soft & hydrated while protecting it from allergens, irritants, and pathogens. Oils help keep the water in your skin from escaping, meaning that when your face isn’t producing enough oil on its own, the skin can become dry and flaky.
At the other end of the spectrum, your face may be producing too much oil, which can keep dirt trapped inside pores and cause acne. It may seem counter-intuitive, but properly moisturizing your skin can actually help reduce excess oil on the face.
Thoughtfully Selected Ingredients
There are basically three different types of moisturizers:
- Humectants add water back into the skin (John G. Zampella, M.D.)
- Emollients fill spaces between skin cells
- Occlusives seal the skin to keep water in
The key to choosing a truly moisturizing oil is making sure that the molecules are small enough to penetrate the skin barrier and strengthen the skin, rather than sitting on top of the skin. Research suggests that all four of the oils used in Kiskanu’s Face Oil can actually help penetrate and repair the skin. In addition, their base of all cold-pressed oils means that every oil retains its nutrients (such as vitamins and minerals) since it isn’t altered at all by heat or refining processes. Plus the anti-bacterial, antifungal, and antioxidant properties of this CBD Face Oil are also useful in fighting acne and other skin irritations.
