As CBD oil continues to rise in the beauty industry, hemp too has come back into the skincare spotlight. The “it” ingredient is proven to help re-establish systems’ equilibrium and is ideal to help replenish cells. Hemp is from the seeds of cannabis plants and is rich in nutrients like omega 3, so extremely nourishing and reduces redness and irritation. Cannabidiol is mainly from the leaves, it has some hydration benefits and anti-inflammatory properties. Brands from all over the world are emerging using one of these two ingredients and mostly 100% vegan and cruelty-free.

We take a look at brands that are disrupting the skincare industry using CBD as their main ingredient.

Ho Karan

Ho Karan CBD beauty products

The story of HO KARAN began in 1965, when the founder’s grandparents began growing hemp in Britanny. Today, their mission is to show all the benefits of Cannabis sativa to everyone. HO KARAN which means “I love you” in Breton, is a love declaration to these hemp growers, to their spirit, and to our planet.

The founder calls herself Miss Cannabis and has a very serious mission, to reveal the beauty of hemp and cannabis around the world. She started a Cannatour; a series of interviews with the various people involved in the industry, to show the faces and listen to the voices of those whose love cannabis. Her aim is to combat the stigma and help people (re)discover this plant, which has been used for millennia in medicine and nutrition but was wrongly discredited in the mid-20th century.

Ho Karan has created products – 2.5% and 5% – that only contains cannabidiol and regionally-grown organic hemp. They can be used alone to smooth over the face or as a booster if you want to add them into your own skincare, from moisturizing cream to serums to bump up their protective antioxidant, oil regulating and calming capabilities.
