Why We Use CBD in our Custom Beauty Blends

Custom Beauty Blends including CBD Oil 

In the final Research Paper of my recently completed Aromatherapy Certification Study, I addressed the question, "Is CBD in Skincare more than just Buzzworthy?"

After months of research, I learned, it's definitely more than Buzzworthy. Here's why...

Oxidative stress occurs in our skin due to years of accumulated free radical damage from sun exposure, smoking, poor diet, alcohol consumption, and stress, combined with environmental factors such as dry, hot climate and pollution, all lead to impaired skin barrier function.

The likelihood of chronic inflammation, accelerated by the aging process and drop in hormone levels after Menopause, damages structure and function of skin cells (causing wrinkling).

There is now even a scientific term for this continuous, low-grade inflammation associated with aging. It's called inflammaging.

How CBD Works

In a 2019 study Cannabidiol demonstrates as both anti-inflammatory and antioxidant, showing CBD exerts anti-oxidative effects more powerful than even Vitamins C and E. In this same study we learn Cannabidiol is capable of regulation of inflammation and has the possibility of protecting cells from UV radiation.
In this illustration below, CB1 and CB2 receptors are demonstrated. These receptors are present and active in practically all cell types of the skin. CB1 and CB2 receptors interact in cannabinoids to reduce the symptoms of many skin conditions. These effects happen through a host of interactions between phytocannabinoids and our endocannabinoid system.

Cannabinoids and Skin Receptors

In assessing whether or not cannabinoids and terpenes (found in both CBD and Essential Oils) play a role in the world of cosmetics, I studied individual skin conditions and CB1 and CB2 receptors in the skin. Based on a number of studies, I concluded these receptors in the skin do interact with cannabinoids to reduce the symptoms of many skin conditions from Eczema to Aging skin.

In a 2014 study titled, TRP Channel Cannabinoid Receptors in Skin Sensation, Homeostasis, and Inflammation reports, "Ionotropic cannabinoid receptors represent potentially attractive targets for the therapeutic use of cannabinoids to treat sensory and dermatological diseases. Cannabinoids exert an anti-inflammatory effect in the skin, through both their actions on keratinocyte cytokine production and their modulation of immune cells.

Whenever purchasing a custom beauty blend be sure you're purchasing from a Certified Aromatherapist. I formulate our Custom Beauty Blends, with luxurious Base oils, CBD, and 8-12 essential oils known for their affinity for beautiful skin. I take your skin and any allergies or sensitivities you may have into consideration before crafting the perfect blend just for YOU.

See what people are saying!

My skin is glowing
It’s been almost two weeks since I started Retinol treatment. Wow, what a change, my skin is glowing! I’m noticing fine lines disappearing. I’m so impressed with all Parisians products but this is by far my favorite ~ Lynda F. CA

Great Product!
I have been using the Peptide Line Diminishing Eye Gel for several months now and have noticed that my eyes appear brighter and less “tired”. The puffiness is less and the skin under them is brighter. ~ Jeanne M. NC

Great for sore muscles/joints
Serenity Premium CBD Gel works for me! Highly recommend for relief from sore or strained muscles! I have an old ACL injury that acts up from time to time and this quiets the aches quickly. Smells nice without being too strong, too. ~ Connie M. HI

Platinum C gets a "A" from me!
I started using PPI's Platinum C about a year ago when I decided to dump the toxic department store brand from my beauty regimen.The Platinum C meets and exceeds my expectations and has kept my skin texture smooth, even and yes - YOUTHFUL!! The same type product in department stores would have cost me almost double what I pay for PPI. ~ Nicole R. CA
