Our topical CBD Moisturizing Cream is formulated with several deeply nourishing oils to help relieve dryness, plus a blend of nutrient-rich plant botanicals to support the appearance and feel of smooth, healthy skin.
But Zebra CBD Moisturizing Cream is designed to do more than just soften skin. It also contains high-quality CBD oil, which delivers the vast health benefits of cannabinoids, including CBD, directly to your skin. When applied topically, the anti-inflammatory properties of CBD oil may help provide additional relief for skin inflammation and irritation.
Premium CBD Oil
We use a CO2 method to collect a hemp extract from the leaves and flowers of organically grown hemp. This gentle technique helps maintain the purity and preserves the full range of cannabinoids and compounds found in the oil so you get maximum health benefits.
When used topically in combination with other oils and botanicals, hemp extract may benefit skin health. CBD face cream is often used to help decrease signs of facial redness or dark spots. Although there is limited research on hemp extract or CBD oil when it comes to skin wellness, one limited study found improvements in skin hydration, elasticity and appearance of scarring among 20 adults with inflammatory skin disorders. Improvements were reported for conditions such as atopic dermatitis and psoriasis after applying a CBD-containing ointment twice a day for three months.
Safflower Seed Oil
Safflower seed oil is extracted from seeds of the safflower plant. It’s a commonly used vegetable oil in cooking and food manufacturing.
Rich in unsaturated fatty acids, particularly linoleic acid, safflower seed oil is also used in skincare products as a moisturizing ingredient. Some studies have found the application of safflower seed oil significantly improved skin hydration in adults, both those with and without inflammatory skin disorders.
Shea butter is extracted from nuts of a tree native to Africa. In African culture, shea butter has a history of use as a natural moisturizer. It can be beneficial in treating dry, cracked skin. The texture of shea butter is rich and buttery, making it a popular choice for deep conditioning hair, moisturizing skin and preventing stretch marks.
Studies have demonstrated shea butter is successful in minimizing signs of skin aging, likely due to reversing skin dryness and dehydration.
Avocado oil is extracted from the flesh of the avocado fruit. It’s rich in many nutrients, including unsaturated fatty acids, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that are not only good for your nutrition, but good for the health of your skin as well. Avocado oil is highly moisturizing when used topically, and can help treat skin dryness. Some research indicates the antioxidant content of avocado oil provides protection to the skin when exposed to ultraviolet radiation.
Jojoba Seed Oil
Mexican and Native American cultures have historically used jojoba seed oil for moisturizing hair and skin. Jojoba oil is rich in compounds called wax esters, which are similar to the oils found naturally in human skin.
Research has found that these compounds can help manage skin conditions in which the skin barrier is compromised, such as psoriasis, eczema and rosacea. Jojoba oil also has anti-inflammatory properties which can be beneficial in managing inflammatory skin conditions like acne, wounds and infections.
Amaranth Seed Oil
Amaranth seed oil is extracted from the seeds of the amaranth plant and is rich in fatty acids. Amaranth seed oil can help protect skin from the damaging effects of exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation. UV light can cause sunburn and damage that prematurely ages skin and increases the risk of skin cancer.
In one study, topical formulas with even very low concentrations of amaranth seed oil (0.1%) had a protective effect on the skin both during and after exposure to UV light. Cosmetics formulated with amaranth seed oil may help skin resist burns, age spots and cancers of the skin.
Aloe is a succulent plant that thrives in tropical climates. It’s been used for thousands of years for a variety of medicinal purposes.
The leaves of the aloe plant contain a gel-like substance that is often used topically for soothing skin irritations, burns and wounds. It also has moisturizing properties that can improve skin hydration. Some studies have even found aloe can provide relief of painful skin conditions.
Rosemary is an evergreen plant widely recognized as a culinary herb, but is also believed to have powerful medicinal properties. Rosemary is rich in antioxidants, flavonoids, and terpenes which are credited for this plant’s powerful antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, fungicidal and anti-cancer properties.
Research has found rosemary essential oil applied to the skin can help increase skin hydration and elasticity. One of the leading causes of signs of skin aging is dryness. Dry skin exacerbates the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Regularly moisturizing skin with a product that contains rosemary can help minimize signs of skin aging.
Zebra CBD Moisturizing Cream contains a unique combination of botanicals that will leave your skin radiant and smooth while promoting overall skin health.
