Hemp extracts have been used to create a positive impact on the human body and mind for centuries. In the past 5 years, the potential benefits of CBD have been intensely studied. Koi is dedicated to constantly innovating ways to deliver this vital cannabinoid to where it is needed. People choose to use CBD for a myriad of reasons, and there is no one-size-fits-all solution. That’s why our product range is diverse and includes tinctures, inhalers, softgels, balms, gummies, and even smokable hemp flower. Today, we’re proud to say that Koi CBD is able to answer yet another need, that of maintaining healthy, youthful skin.
More than just a CBD Skincare System
While CBD has been shown to have therapeutic properties when applied to the skin, we wanted to create a skincare product that stood on the prestige of multiple, skin-loving ingredients. We knew that to have an effective CBD skincare system, we needed to take into account all of the latest developments in the science of healthy human skin. That led us to enlisting a team of chemists and naturopaths to help us select premium ingredients that would not only be effective, but would also blend synergistically with our premium hemp extract.
Here are just a few of the science-backed, cutting-edge ingredients that you’ll find in the Koi Skincare System.
Botanical Essences and Extracts
As with our hemp extract, we believe that natural ingredients are better for you. You will find a rainbow of plant- and fruit-based essential oils and extracts that are known for their ability to nourish and revitalize the skin. These include apple amino acids which contribute to the smoothing of fine lines, prickly pear oil to help remove spots and restore elasticity, and cucumber extract which is known for its skin moisturizing and softening properties. There are too many others to mention here, so be sure to check the Koi Skincare product pages for a full list of ingredients included in each of our formulations.
As a lipophilic compound, salicylic acid is soluble in oil, helping to combat conditions like acne and blackheads. But that’s only half the story. The real reason we had to include salicylic acid in three of our four CBD skincare formulations is because of its ability to act as a gentle exfoliant. It does this by dissolving the connective structures, called desmosomes, that form between skin cells. This allows the outer layer of dead or dying cells to fall away, leaving newer, smoother skin in its place.
As with its parent, hyaluronic acid, sodium hyaluronate is renowned for its ability to attract water and deliver it to nearby cells to create a plumping, tightening effect in the skin. Unlike hyaluronic acid, however, the properties of the sodium hyaluronate molecule allow it to penetrate deeper beneath the surface of the skin, where it can bring essential moisture to even more cells.
The Koi Skincare System
These ingredients, along with many other well-chosen skin-supporting agents, have been meticulously combined and balanced against each other to create four fully-realized products that are everything a premium CBD skincare system should be.
- Cleanser gently exfoliates the skin and removes impurities, leaving your skin feeling clear and refreshed.
- Toner conditions and softens by repairing damaged cells and supporting improved elasticity.
- Facial Serum refines the complexion and nourishes stressed areas such as fine lines and under-eye circles.
- Moisturizer Cream delivers hydration to the skin while smoothing and reducing visible pores to create a youthful, supple feel.
Our new Koi Skincare line was designed for those who want the best for their full wellbeing, not just their appearance. Healthy skin and a healthy mind leads to greater confidence. At the end of the day, we’re counting that as one more thing the power of hemp can give us.
