Is more hemp coming to your cosmetics? – Episode 169

Welcome to the Beauty Brains podcast. In today’s episode we answer questions about Petrolatum and it’s use in skin care, whether eyebrow growth serums really work and dish on a couple cosmetic industry stories that we found interesting.

Beauty Science News

Hemp is now legal to grow in the US. What will this mean for beauty products and the hot new ingredient CBD?

P&G teams up with the EWG – Even big companies are now starting to jump on the certification bandwagon. They don’t even seem to care that their partner doesn’t value the science of toxicology when making declarations about product safety.

Also mentioned was this Bloomberg article about P&G working with EWG.

    Revitabrow has Dechloro Dihydroxy Difluoro Ethylcloprostenolamide is this a synthetic prostaglandin that can promote growth?

      The brand thinks so. But if it actually worked it would be an illegal drug. It is a synthetic prostaglandin but I haven’t seen evidence that it promotes growth.

    Excellent episode! It was very refreshing to hear Valerie introduce the show and have Perry in the “cohost” seat.

    Thanks for the lesson on hemp vs. pot. I had never stopped to think about the differences.

    One additional comment about CBD for skin care: even if the ingredient has anti-inflammatory properties that doesn’t necessarily mean that it have those properties when applied from a skin care product. To know that for sure we would also need to know if it penetrates the skin properly. In other words it may work in the lab but not in the real world. (Remember the Kligman questions?)

      Thanks! We can’t forget the Kligman questions.
