CBDfx Unveils New CBD Oil Face Serum

Los Angeles-based CBD industry leaders CBDfx proudly unveiled Rejuvediol, their latest product innovation. This luxurious phytonutrient rich CBD oil face serum is formulated to help diminish signs of aging, regenerate skin cells and promotes healthy, glowing skin.

Rejuvediol™ contains 22 carefully curated oils, extracts, and botanicals that were hand-selected. Inspired by plants, earth and sea, Rejuvediol™ is beauty dedicated to nature and simplicity. We bring you truly natural skincare that is powered by science and the best ingredients that nature has to offer. Experience spa-like serenity with this blend of therapeutic extracts, nourishing oils and CBD. From jojoba oil and rosemary extract aimed at dry or cracked skin, to frankincense, red raspberry seed, and rosehip for calming and aromatherapeutic effects; never before has a CBD skincare product reached this level of refinement and quality.

CBD Oil Face Serum
– 250mg $99.99

This CBD oil face serum has been lovingly formulated to gently care for your skin by reducing signs of aging, firming up skin, and strengthening collagen to create a younger and healthier appearance. We’ve hand-picked critical essential oils and extracts like jojoba, red raspberry seed, and bergamot to nourish you with vitamin E while helping to calm inflamed or dry skin. Best of all, this CBD face serum also acts as a protectant to prevent future damage and provide critical cell turnover that helps to guard against free radicals.

Rejuvediol face serum’s ingredients are formulated to improve facial skin appearance in every possible way. The oil extracts found in Rejuvediol have been shown in various studies to potentially stimulate cell turnover, diminish signs of aging, prevent wrinkles, shield against free radical damage, and return skin to its more youthful, elastic quality.

MULTI-CORRECTIONAL ANTI-AGING FORMULA THAT HELPS:

  • Diminish signs of aging
  • Stimulate cellular turnover
  • Shield against free radical damage
  • Prevent wrinkles
  • Renew skin elasticity by strengthening collagen and deliver oxygen to cells

Of course, what makes Rejuvediol™ distinctly unique is the inclusion of CBDfx‘s famously pure, organically farmed CBD oil. CBDfx is known for uncompromising product quality and total consumer transparency when it comes to lab testing and batch consistency. That’s no different with the launch of Rejuvediol™.

CBD represents a huge beacon of hope for people who have struggled with skin appearance and health throughout their lives. Although it’s still early in the game in terms of completed clinical research demonstrating cause-and-effect between CBD use and skin relief, the initial results are extremely promising to say the least. CBD has been shown in studies to reduce sebum production — potentially acting as a powerful acne treatment — as well as providing a protective effect through free radical reduction and collagen boosting.

That said, Rejuvediol™ CBD Oil Face Serum is a special product that contains more than just CBD. Among other ingredients, rose extract, jojoba, and red raspberry seed oil specifically provide vitamin E and skin calming effects to help you look and feel your best.

CBD Calming Balm
– 150mg $39.99

Life can be stressful, so the next time you need a much-needed break, treat yourself to a soothing rub with CBDfx’s Calming Balm.

The CBDfx calming balm is specifically formulated to soothe stressed and sensitive skin. The subtle blend of lavender, chamomile and tea tree oil is made for sensitive skin types and will not irritate eczema or other skin conditions. This nourishing balm can be used daily or whenever you need a boost of skin restoring nutrients.

Loaded with the purest essential oils, this CBD Calming Balm contains the best botanicals. The hemp plants are sourced from brand’s partner hemp farms in the USA, before they end up at our Southern California labs for clean CO2 extraction. This process ensures that all of brand’s CBD oil is free of harsh chemicals, GMO’s and heavy metals because the brand control every step of the process.

CBD isn’t the only ingredient CBDfx take seriously. The base of this CBD Calming Balm centers around shea butter, a common skincare ingredient – and rightfully so. Shea butter has been shown to provide important moisturization and protection, and the shea butter in this balm feels nothing short of silky on your skin.

Zone Naturals’ signature product, Chub Rub Formula, has an incredible secret ingredient: years of community feedback

MedZone, the first company to introduce a skincare brand dedicated to the plus size community, PlusZone, announces the debut of its all-natural product line: Zone Naturals. Inspired by plus community feedback, Zone Naturals strives to help Every BODY feel better. Available on ZoneNaturals.com and amazon.com, these products fuse the brand’s proven approach to chafing solutions with their commitment to consumers.

“When we started conversations about chafing two years ago, practically no one wanted to talk about it. People were embarrassed,” CEO/Founder, Joe Freeman, recalls. “We’re thrilled to see how the conversation has evolved as we’ve supported the plus community at events, conventions and celebrations. Chub rub is no longer a taboo.”

Introducing Chub Rub® Formula
Chub Rub® Formula is full of pure goodness. Coconut Oil lends hydration and anti-inflammatory properties. Shea Butter protects natural oils and Aloe Vera brings healing relief. Vitamin E, which helps diminish past scarring, rounds out the list to produce a long-lasting, grease-free, anti-friction stick that feels as good as it performs.

The Chub Rub® Formula name was derived from body positive community conversations. Zone Naturals – a brand founded on transparency in its ingredients and messaging – believes in a “call it as you see it” approach. Since the plus community has embraced “chub rub” to describe chafing, it was a clear decision for Zone Naturals to name their product after the widely-used term.

Zone Naturals will expand its offerings throughout 2019 to include Friction Formula, Blister Formula, and self-care focused bath and body products.

Summer 2019’s Must-Have Skincare Product
Zone Naturals invites you to discuss the natural pairing of Chub Rub® Formula with summer activities: beach days, vacations, road trips, festivals, etc. Wear this residue-free formulation with dresses, shorts, rompers and more for long-lasting chafing protection.

About Zone Naturals

From the professionals who brought you MedZone®, find everyday Chub Rub® prevention from your head to your toes – always only a swipe away. Their skincare solutions are designed to help every body and every size feel better, every day.

At home, on the go, and everywhere in between, they are made to fit your lifestyle (and not the other way around). More than a comfort to the plus community, they’re proudly one of its biggest allies. They’ve met you at community events, fashion conventions, blog parties and beyond, but most importantly, they’ve heard you.

Therapeutic Skincare Brand CeraVe® Launches Hydrating Sunscreen

While incorporating sun protection into a regular skincare routine this time of year seems like a no-brainer, dermatologists agree that consumers could use some improvement when it comes to protecting from the sun. According to a recent survey conducted by CeraVe®, only two percent of dermatologists say they believe their patients take sun protection very seriously. Whether it’s a lack of knowledge or just confusion on best practices, consumers are looking for products that deliver sun protection and skincare without making sacrifices.

To help them take better care of their skin without the tradeoffs, CeraVe® has launched new Hydrating Sunscreen, a mineral sunscreen formulated with broad-spectrum sun protection and three essential ceramides to protect your skin in the sun and lock in moisture long after.

CeraVe® Hydrating Sunscreen is a 100 percent mineral sunscreen that uses titanium dioxide and zinc oxide to protect against UV rays. Unlike a chemical sunscreen that absorbs into the skin, a mineral sunscreen uses mineral filters to form a physical barrier on the skin and reflect UV rays away. Like all CeraVe® products, the sunscreen also contains three essential ceramides, which help restore the skin’s natural barrier while locking in moisture. CeraVe® is the only brand to offer a product that combines SPF protection plus three essential ceramides, protecting from the sun and providing all-day hydration and delivering skincare without any tradeoffs.

Using a sunscreen like CeraVe® and following proper sun care measures can help protect skin from damage like sun spots, premature aging and hyperpigmentation; however, many people do not even realize that their skin is being damaged by the sun if not protected. In fact, half of dermatologists say that they find themselves talking to patients about their sun habits due to sun damage more than half the time, even when patients are there for unrelated topics. Moreover, many people don’t realize that sun exposure can dry out skin, which is why CeraVe® sought to create a product that could provide both sun care plus skincare.

“What many of my patients don’t realize is that just because they aren’t showing visible signs of sun damage, like a sunburn, it doesn’t mean the sun isn’t harming their skin,” said board-certified dermatologist Dr. Michelle Henry. “Though I recommend CeraVe® Hydrating Sunscreen to all of my patients because it offers both sun protection and hydration the skin needs, I especially direct my patients with who have conditions like eczema, rosacea and melasma to use mineral sunscreen because it is suitable for even the most sensitive skin.”

Since the mineral filters in CeraVe® Hydrating Sunscreen sit on the surface of the skin to reflect the sun instead of absorbing into the skin like chemical sunscreens would, it is both safe and ideal for sensitive skin. Further, the product is free of fragrances, parabens and oil. It has earned the National Eczema Association Seal of Acceptance and is recommended for daily use by the Skin Cancer Foundation, underscoring its efficacy and suitability for all skin types.

Despite regularly reinforcing the importance of sun protection, dermatologists fear that the advice is not being taken seriously or is not understood:

  • One-quarter of dermatologists (24 percent) believe that up to 75 percent of their patients are lying about how much sunscreen they use and how often they use it.
  • Three-quarters (75 percent) believe that less than half of their patients are reapplying sunscreen throughout the day.
  • More than three-quarters of dermatologists (76 percent) say that less than 25 percent of their patients understand the difference between UVA and UVB rays.
  • More than half of dermatologists (52 percent) believe the most confusing part about using sunscreen for patients is when to use it and how often to apply.

“This survey underscores a lack of understanding of the need for proper sun protection measures among consumers. CeraVe® knows there is a need for products with SPF that consumers not only understand, but will want to use,” said Derrick Booker, Vice President of Marketing at CeraVe. “We’re proud to offer a mineral sunscreen with moisturizing benefits that our consumers can feel good about putting on their skin every day.”

CeraVe® offers a wide variety of therapeutic skincare products that are developed with dermatologists and contain an exclusive combination of ceramides 1, 3 and 6-II, which are essential to restoring and maintaining the skin’s natural barrier. The Hydrating Sunscreen is available in face and body varieties in SPF 30 and SPF 50 at mass retailers nationwide and on Amazon.

Topically Applied Farm-to-Skin CBD Products Featuring the Brand’s Award-Winning Flower

This season, Cannaisseur Brands is re-launching its topically applied terpene-rich CBD Essentials product line with new branding, logo and packaging.
The brand was founded by CBD industry expert and advocate Aryn Sieber, who consults with physicians and patients nationwide on the responsible use and medicinal benefits of cannabis. Sieber became a sought-after professional leader in the industry after using cannabis during his own battle with Stage IV cancer.
CBD Essentials topically applied products are lab-formulated, third-party tested, and batch numbered to ensure quality and consistency. All CBD Essentials products feature Sieber’s award-winning flower and meet the federal requirements of the 2018 Farm Bill, which mandates that all CBD-infused products are derived from dried Cannabis Sativa L. plant material that contain less than 0.3 percent THC to be legal in the United States.

CBD Essentials is dedicated to developing the highest quality therapeutic cannabis-infused products available,” said Ayrn SieberFounder of Cannaisseur Brands. “Using premium CBD flower and select terpenes in our award-winning farm-to skin formulas, the products are designed to optimize and support personal health and well-being.” Real-world testing has shown CBD to have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and to act as an antibacterial, antitumoral and antimicrobial. Studies also have shown that CBD can balance oil production in the skin. Furthermore, because the human body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS) is critically responsible for the life cycle of basal skin cells, some treatments encourage the ECS with topically applied CBD in an effort to help regulate the production of healthy skin. (It is important to note that therapeutic statements for CBDproducts are not yet evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration and are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.)

CBD is non-psychoactive. Cannabinoids are chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant that act on cannabinoid receptors in cells in the human body that alter neurotransmitter release in the brain. Ligands or bonding molecules for these receptor proteins include endocannabinoids which are naturally produced in the body. Terpenes refer to a class of compounds found in nearly every plant species including cannabis. They have been shown to influence many biological activities—including reduction of inflammation, reduced sensitivity to pain, and reduced anxiety. Terpenes and cannabinoids share a common biochemical precursor, giving them the ability to bind with different biological substances in the body, including receptors and enzymes.
The Cannaisseur Brands Summer 2019 collection features six key products:

CBD Essentials Pain Cream—This body cream, formulated to offer pain relief for sore muscles, aching joints, and chronic skin conditions, won the Les Nouvelles Esthétiques & Spa “Best New Product” award in 2018.
