Moisturizing, antioxidant, anti-wrinkle: the miraculous properties of cannabis sativa
It’s impossible to summarize in a few lines the long history of cannabis (or marijuana) – from the first uses, attested in the Neolithic, to the extensive commercial production in British industry of the sixteenth century and then throughout Europe, from the prohibition of the early twentieth century until the cultural revolution of the seventies.
Only recently, however, the cosmetic industry has begun to become increasingly interested in the properties and characteristics of this multifaceted plant, already used extensively in textile and paper production. Why?
Let’s take a step back. What are the two most important foods for skin health and well-being? At the top of this list we would certainly find the so-called essential fatty acids – linoleic acid (Omega 6) and alpha-linoleic acid (Omega 3) – which play a fundamental role: protecting the surface membrane of the skin, stimulating its cell regeneration, and giving it the characteristic softness and elasticity.
The question can be said to be satisfied, considering that only in a few ingredients such as cannabis sativa it is possible to find such a perfect balance of Omega 6 and Omega 3. If to the overall calculation we add the fact that cannabis sativa is also rich in vitamin E, it is easy to see its extraordinary potential and applications in cosmetics.
In fact, the list of benefits deriving from the application of cannabis sativa oil on the skin is very long – all properties that we have taken in utmost consideration when developing the innovative formula of Unica 4K, where cannabis sativa oil is present pure and undiluted.
This extraordinary ingredient has in fact a long list of beneficial properties: the richness of vitamin E ensures an excellent antioxidant action, protecting the skin from impurities and external harmful agents, not least environmental pollution, while the perfect balance between essential fatty acids ensures the deep hydration of the skin, also improving its ability to retain moisture. As if that were not enough, cannabis sativa is also rich in vitamin A, magnesium, zinc, iron, calcium and phosphorus – all extremely useful ingredients for maintaining healthy skin.
A catalog of beneficial properties that we certainly could not ignore when choosing the most effective and natural active ingredients to use in our revolutionary synergistic and pluripotent formula, where cannabis sativa is not limited to performing its normal functions cosmetic, but is enhanced by (and enhances) the other ingredients.
