Tired-and-true science meets millennia-old healing: When two gold-star skincare ingredients — Retinoid & Full Flower Cannabis — combine, their synergistic potential is unlocked. Our latest ritual, Grass Nuit Rebirth Retinoid, harnesses the unmatched benefits of this power playing duo to restore skin’s vitality.
Here’s why we believe this supercharged duo is the future of beauty — and how it’ll repair, refine and regenerate your skin.
FIRSTLY, WHAT ARE RETINOIDS?
Derivatives of Vitamin A, retinoids were first elevated to hero-status in skincare back in the 50s, when dermatologists found out it was promisingly effective treatment for acne. Its ability to unclog pores, exfoliate, soften texture and tone and accelerate cell turn over made it a standout unlike anything ever seen before.
All of this (plus it’s ultra-effective at boosting collagen and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles) makes it easy to understand why retinoid is put on a pedestal in beauty. But, it’s also notorious for its harsher side effects — namely, dryness, redness, and irritation. As skin acclimates to this active in a process now commonly know as purging, it can become painfully inflamed, visibly flake and raw.
These retinoid “uglies” can be enough to scare off most but when done right, this ingredient’s benefits can give your complexion a full 180° transformation.
HOW FULL FLOWER CANNABIS SATIVA UP-LEVELS RETINOIDS
Enter full flower cannabis sativa. As far back as Cleopatra (she famously anointed her skin and body in the plant’s healing extract), this flower has been revered for its soothing, softening and moisturizing properties. A potent, antioxidant-rich anti-inflammatory, cannabis sativa works wonders at addressing visible imperfections (dryness, redness, rosacea, acne, eczema… we could keep going!) while protecting against future damage. It binds with receptors in the skin to help regulate natural functioning, bringing our skin barrier and oil production back into balance if thrown off by anything irritating or destabilizing.
These restorative properties are what make retinoids and cannabis sativa such an exceptional match. Recent clinical studies have shown that when paired together, cannabis sativa helps retinoid soar on all skin types — even sensitive skin can tolerate higher levels of retinoids, time-to-visible results is rapidly accelerated, and cannabis all but removes the painful purging process thanks to its healing nature.
