Josie Maran Launches Vegan CBD Elixir and Hemp Facial Oils at Sephora

Josie Maran Cosmetics – owned by American model and entrepreneur Josie Maran – has launched a new vegan CBD and hemp elixir range.

Named Skin Dope, the new range includes an argan oil with 100 milligrams of CBD and a Hemp Seed Oil.

CBD is becoming a popular beauty ingredient. Last year, vegan and cruelty-free beauty brand Milk Makeup launched a range of “Kush” products – including a brow gel and a mascara – infused with CBD.

The cannabinoid – which can be derived from hemp or the cannabis plant – was recently legalized across the United States. Unlike THC, CBD has no psychoactive effects, and – according to some medical experts – its health benefits include soothing chronic pain, anxiety, depression, and assisting with sleep.

CBD also boasts anti-inflammatory benefits, which has caught the attention of a growing number of beauty brands. Maran’s Skin Dope aims to “leverage the power of cannabis,” according to its website, combining it with the “virtues of Argan oil,” one of Josie Maran’s staple ingredients. Both oils can be applied all over the face, either before or after serum or moisturizer. The Hemp Seed Oil works better underneath makeup and the CBD Oil is an effective nighttime treatment, says the brand.

“We’re cultivating a better state of being and a better state of mind,” says Skin Dope. It adds, “[Our] pure, organic ingredients are gently processed to maintain the full integrity of their nutrients. Safe, clean, and free from harmful contaminants, what it means for you is more nourishment, more relief — and more results.”

The Rise of the CBD Market

It’s not only the beauty industry that’s seeing CBD-infused products appear on the market. In the food and drink industry, CBD is also soaring in popularity.

Wellness snack company Weller recently launched CBD-infused Coconut Bites and Beverly Hills-based beverage brand Living Foods introduced CBD sparkling water. In the UK, Yogland added a new frozen yogurt made with the cannabinoid to its menu and vegan restaurant chain by CHLOE. launched its CBD snack range Feelz in its London locations.

According to Bloomberg, Vegan and CBD-infused wine are among the top trends set to transform the alcohol industry in 2019.

The publication reported, “With the legalization of pot in California, Canada, and elsewhere last year, wine and weed mixes are coming. Canadian investment bank Canaccord Genuity LLC suggested to Business Insider that marijuana-infused beverages could become a $600 million market in the U.S. in the next four years.”

The Hemp Seed Oil from Josie Maran’s Skin Dope range is available online from Josie Maran Cosmetics and in-store at Sephora. The CBD Oil is available online at Skin Dope.
