Skin Care Spotlight: Kiehl’s Since 1851 Introduces Herbal Treatment For Problem Skin, With Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil
NEW YORK, Feb. 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Inspired by Kiehl's apothecary heritage and the traditional uses and applications of powerful herbs, Kiehl's chemists proudly introduce the new Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil Herbal Concentrate – a lightweight, calmative, non-comedogenic facial oil that helps to improve the appearance of skin prone to imperfections such as visible redness and discomfort.
The non-acnegenic formula with 100% naturally-derived ingredients including Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil and Green Oregano Oil, helps balance hydration and relieve the feeling of stressed skin. Kiehl's considers ingredients to be naturally derived if they retain more than 50% of their molecular structure after being processed from a natural source.
Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil Herbal Concentrate, with 60% Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil, helps visibly reduce skin redness and provides skin with relief from discomfort after one use, while helping to strengthen the skin barrier, encouraging more resilient, healthier skin over time. It even improves skin's hydration levels for a full 8 hours.
Containing only 13 ingredients, including an herbal blend of botanical and essential oils, the formula has been expertly calibrated to ensure both potent efficacy with a lightweight, fast-absorbing application.
Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil is known for its emollient and soothing benefits. Kiehl's Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil, sourced in Germany, is cold pressed from hemp seeds and has a natural green color.
Green Oregano, a perennial herb, is obtained via steam distillation from the flower portion of the botanical herb. Well-known for its anti-oxidant properties, this ingredient has been traditionally used as an antiseptic and skin soother and in this formula, Green Oregano Oil helps to revitalize and relieve problem-prone skin.
Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil Herbal Concentrate is rich in unsaturated fatty acids and helps soothe the skin. The formula as a whole has been demonstrated in an instrumental study to strengthen the skin barrier, and helps to keep problem skin looking healthy by reducing the look of visible redness and the feeling of discomfort.
It was tested1 for safety on sensitive skin, is non-acnegenic and non-comedogenic, and is appropriate for all skin types.
Kiehl's Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil Herbal Concentrate, $49, is available at Kiehl's stores and Kiehls.com.
