Eco-friendly consumers: make sure your makeup contains this ingredient…

First off, we’ll preface this blog by saying NO, CBD oil in make-up won’t get you high. 

Now that we’ve cleared that up, let’s dive into the skincare benefits CBD offers Reckless consumers and reveal one very important environmental factor you need to consider before purchasing makeup ever again...

What is CBD oil?

CBD, short for cannabidiol, is one of over 80 compounds called cannabinoids extracted from the cannabis sativa plant. The two most well-known of these are CBD, which does not get you high, and THC, which does.

“Increasing anandamide in your body and brain has anti-inflammatory effects,” says Michele Ross, founder of Infused Health, a cannabis education and health coaching program. 

What are the benefits of CBD oil? 

As it turns out, CBD oil may be the ticket to clear, acne-free skin, as well as helping with pain, inflammation, and certain skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis.

The form of CBD oil we use is best for facial skin as it's pure, doesn't clog pores and is packed with skin-rejuvenating antioxidants. Plus keeping your lips hydrated AF while rocking the awesome shades all-day!

Why CBD oil in Reckless products? 

Reckless products are made with conscious consumers in mind, so we have made sure that all of our products are vegan friendly and cruelty-free. It is important to us that you know exactly what you’re putting on your face and that it was made ethically. 

What MUST you consider before purchasing makeup again?

Let’s talk about the environment.

We understand that every action we take has some direct or indirect effect on the planet. To minimise our footprint, we use ingredients like CBD oil because of its reduced impact on the environment.

For the eco-friendly consumers out there, you can’t look past Hemp plants. (The plants that produce CBD oil).

They don’t require fertiliser, much water or pesticides. This means that the environmental footprint is very low to grow. 

In contrast, mineral oil is a clear odourless liquid that has been used routinely for many decades in a wide variety of cosmetics and personal care products. The mineral oil used in cosmetics and personal care products (also called “white mineral oil”) is a highly purified material obtained from refining petroleum. We certainly didn’t like the idea of putting petrol on our face!
