The market for male grooming products has undergone rapid growth in recent years. With beards and moustaches back in fashion and men paying closer attention to how they look, products such as beard balms and lotions, shampoos for men, facial creams and more have become hot property. This has led to an influx of specialist brands looking to take a chunk of a lucrative market that can only continue to expand.
One additional point of interest has been the legalisation of CBD. What has this to do with the male grooming market? Some brands – such as Leo’s Wicked which has been in the business for many years – have latched onto the effects that CBD has on the skin and have created products that incorporate the product for better effect. What is CBD and why is it important in this sort of product?
What is CBD?
CBD is an abbreviation for cannabidiol. This is an extract of the cannabis plant – or more precisely a particular strain known as ‘industrial hemp’ – that has become much talked about in the press over the past few years. While not ratified for medicinal purposes, user testimony shows that CBD is useful not just as a skin care product, but also to relieve pain, help with anxiety and depression and more.
Back to the men’s grooming products, and there’s a reason that many brands are including CBD as it has known anti-bacterial qualities, is soothing on the skin and helps clean the pores. In fact, it is widely used by sufferers of skin ailments such as eczema with reported great effect.
Like all companies that use it, Leo’s Wicked cannot legally make claims for its medicinal effects, but it can state that it may be an active ingredient in grooming products, and there are many companies that make claims in both the male and female health market, with success stories that cannot be ignored.
What You Can Find on the Male Grooming Market
The modern man pays a great deal of attention to just to how he looks but also to how he feels. When it comes to skin care, hair care and beard care there are plenty of choices in terms of suppliers and brands. The one we mention above is highly regarded by loyal customers for its great range of beard balms and hair care products, as well as the skin creams and more.
The Leo’s Wicked products use a broad-spectrum CBD oil. CBD is not the only compound of the hemp plant that can be extracted. Broad spectrum means that during the extraction process most of the compounds are left in place – there are more than 100 – yet THC is completely removed. This is the psychoactive element of cannabis!
