With the growing awareness of the benefits of CBD for the skin, more and more people are moving away from commercial bath and hand soaps and making use of CBD soap.There are several reasons why CBD soap is a healthier choice. Most importantly, for people with skin conditions, or who are prone to skin irritation caused by chemicals in many standard store-bought soaps, there’s an immediate alleviation of symptoms.
CBD has well-documented anti-inflammatory properties, and for anyone who suffers from itching, dry skin, or acne – in addition to skin conditions like eczema – the CBD infusion works to reduce the skin’s reaction to irritants. CBD counteracts the harmful effects of free radicals, the particles that cause cell damage and lead to premature aging and degenerative disease.
It’s also important to note that many persistent skin conditions are caused by imbalances in the body’s endocannabinoid system, which regulates organ health. CBD helps restore proper function to the endocannabinoid system, which means that the benefits of CBD soap are not just external or cosmetic – there is a lasting benefit, particularly if CBD is also being taken orally.
For those suffering from acute acne, there is also good news: in addition to anecdotal evidence that CBD soap helps reduce acne outbreaks, a 2014 study has produced evidence that CBD exerts a powerful effect on sebocytes, the skin cells that produce sebum which often builds up and leads to acne.

The effectiveness of CBD in the treatment of acne and other skin conditions means that the effect can be extended after washing as well, by using CBD cream and balm on affected areas. Not only does this help prevent skin flare-ups, but also keeps skin moisturized, soothed, and better protected against environmental irritations.
Many CBD soaps are made with natural ingredients, which also helps to reduce your skin’s exposure to potentially harmful chemicals and additives, and it’s worth remembering that CBD is also has natural antibacterial properties, too.
The Omega-3 and Omega-6 natural fatty acids found in CBD are incredibly good for your skin as well, so CBD soap does far more than just soothing and protecting your skin – it nourishes and repairs it, too.
