Is there anything that cannabis can’t do? Not only does it provide CBD, a chemical compound known to have multiple health benefits, but the oil derived from its seeds can be used topically as a skin calmative for those with blemish-prone, dry, irritated, or just overall angry skin. Don’t believe us? Just ask Kiehl’s, which recently unveiled its latest serum: the Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil Herbal Concentrate.

“Many people are surprised that we decided to develop an oil formula for problem or blemish-prone skin,” says Roberta Weiss, head of product innovation for Kiehl’s. “It actually makes total sense if you think about the fact that people with this kin concern often use products that are harsh on skin, causing it to become dry and flakey. When our Product Innovation team and chemists began to research ingredients to address the visible redness and discomfort experienced by people with this skin concern in a gentle and effective way, we discovered the incredible soothing and calming power of both Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil and Green Oregano Oil.”

Overall, 60 percent of the ingredients in the herbal concentrate is solely sativa seed oil, meaning all that goodness that Weiss described is concentrated for maximum effect.

In a four-week consumer study of 67 participants, 76 percent saw a visible reduction in redness, 88 percent felt their skin was smoother, and 91 percent agreed that their skin felt softer. As someone who personally has blemish-prone skin, I have been using the Kiehl’s Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil Herbal Concentrate daily for the past month and have also noticed a reduction in redness and irritation; my skin is also staying hydrated throughout the day. It works well as a beard oil, so for any guy who has both acne-prone skin and a beard, this is a time-saving, one-step process for moisturizing both face and beard.

The herbal smell is also pleasant, with just a touch of masculine earthiness. For any guy who deals with acne, blemishes, or irritated skin, this new skincare option from Kiehl’s may be just the solution to stepping back from stripping washes and serums to focus on something that is more natural, nourishing, and effective.

Editor’s note: Kiehl’s provided a product sample for review purposes and testing.
