Palm Beach Daily News: Palm Beach lifestyle: Beauty pros embracing CBD products, services

Palm Beach Daily News May 20, 2019

CBD is taking the beauty industry by storm with companies and celebs getting their hands on the new “miracle” treatment. Actresses Kristen Bell and Emma Roberts have admitted to using it in their beauty routine for the Met Gala, and Kim Kardashian West even hosted a CBD-themed baby shower for her fourth child.

Companies like Lord Jones and Saint Jane have created CBD products for skincare and beauty lines in the form of lotions, oils, makeup and bath bombs, and now high-end department stores including Neiman Marcus and Barneys are getting in on the action. Last year, the CBD market reached $619 million in the United States and is expected to grow to $22 billion over the next three years, according to cannabis research firm Brightfield Group.

CBD, which is the non-psychoactive compound of the cannabis plant and will not get you high, is said to help with stress, pain, inflammation, skin hydration, and is even regarded as a miracle treatment for acne.

“CBD is perceived as the next hot thing,” board certified dermatologist Kenneth Beer said. Dr. Beer has a practice in West Palm Beach where he focuses on skin cancer and cosmetic dermatology and has written more than 60 publications and four textbooks. His practice also performs clinical trials on new products for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Paul Labrecque on Palm Beach is offering CBD massages with a 60-minute service for $190 and 90 minutes for $240. Cantor is planning to expand the salon’s CBD services to scalp treatments for irritated and flaky skin, along with a full CBD line of Paul Labrecque products including shampoo, conditioner and hair-styling oil by the end of the year.
