Stress affects everyone - whether it be physical or mental. It affects our work, our relationships, and most chronically, our health, with many diseases having well-established correlations to the presence of chronic stress. To manage, some partake in self-care, such as making an appointment for a spa treatment, while others take supplements, or use essential oils; others may exercise or meditate, and the list goes on. At HCD Anti-Aging Laboratories, Inc, researchers have tried to bring together the idea of self-care with medicine, creating the CBD Pure Calm Mani/Pedi-Pod treatment containing FDA/OTC approved, medical-grade CBD, along with lavender, oatmeal, chamomile, and magnesium, all of which have literature to support their use when it comes to stress-management and overall health. Medicine doesn’t have to always be scary, or painful; this treatment hopes to prove just that.

Hemp oil, the main source of CBD, is one of the few oils that contain about 80% polyunsaturated fats in an optimal ratio of omega-6s to omega-3s. In combination with its high flavonoids, antioxidants, and tocopherols (Vitamin E derivatives), it can potentially have numerous benefits for the human body, especially for the skin (1). In regards to the omega content, research supporting the topical application of hemp oil is in its early stages; however, there is research supporting the use of other omega-rich oils for skin support. In 2019, linseed oil, evening primrose oil, and olive oils were found in animal studies to accelerate wound healing; much of this effect was attributed to the formation of new microvasculature while modulating inflammatory and anti-inflammatory pathways (2). Hemp oil, based on its content, should be no different, hydrating, oxygenating, and reducing inflammation in the skin.

When it comes to direct clinical actions of topical cannabinoids, there is building evidence pointing towards success when it comes to improving acne, seborrhea, dermatitis, and overall skin barrier function. Interestingly, the skin has an endocannabinoid system that is known to maintain skin homeostasis; abnormalities in this system have been tied to these skin conditions, along with problems in hair growth and pigmentation. Though more studies are needed to validate early findings, many researchers are hypothesizing that CBD, as something that can interact with this intrinsic endocannabinoid system, holds a lot of therapeutic potential, especially when it comes to treating dermatologic issues.

Other than using CBD-containing hemp oil, the formulators of the CBD Pure Calm Mani/PediPod also worked to incorporate traditional herbal modalities supported by years of clinical use and research. Two of the botanicals - lavender and chamomile, have benefits when it comes to skin health as well as the ability to benefit psychological conditions, specifically stress. Topically, lavender essential oil has been shown in multiple studies to support wound healing. A review of current research by Samuelson et al in 2020 stated that many of these studies found the daily application was able to improve healing time, increase the expression of collagen thereby strengthening the skin, and enhance the activity of proteins known to be involved in the skin/tissue remodeling process (4). Chamomile, in one review, was found to reduce transepithelial water loss, thereby hydrating the skin; this was evidenced by diminished levels of skin roughness, scaliness, and wrinkles (5). These herbs together not only calm the skin but also are quite respected when it comes to calming the mind.

The CBD Pure Calm Mani/PediPod, due to the aromatherapy aspects of lavender and chamomile, has a direct effect on stress levels. Lavender alone is possibly the most well-respected and most-researched essential oil - studies show benefits on stress, depression, and anxiety levels in a number of situations including the postpartum period, in those recovering from cardiovascular events, in individuals with job stress, and in patients recovering from surgery. Chamomile, also well-studied, has been shown to alleviate depressive symptoms, improve sleep quality, reduce anxiety, and even modulate the diurnal cortisol pattern in a beneficial way. Citing these benefits, Ebrahimi et al 2022 studied the effects of both lavender and chamomile essential oil when inhaled nightly for over one month. They found both were able to significantly decrease depression, anxiety, and stress levels in the elderly population they studied.(6) By including both in the CBD Pure Calm Mani/PediPod, the scent while experiencing treatment should instill a sense of calm, helping promote self-care.

The last herb included in the CBD Pure Calm Mani/PediPod is Avena sativa, commonly known as oatmeal. Traditionally, it has been used for centuries on the skin to treat rashes, burns, eczematous conditions, itching, and redness (7). Evidence now shows that its success in treating these conditions can be attributed to avenanthramides, compounds with both anti-inflammatory and antihistamine mechanisms. The avenanthramides directly inhibit the release of pro-inflammatory molecules known as cytokines and histamine. (8) By reducing inflammation and the allergic response, topical chamomile has the ability to soothe the skin and keep it looking bright and healthy.

Magnesium, an important mineral for whole-body vitality, has also been included. It is used by healthcare professionals as an oral supplement for various concerns but frequently is also used topically. Epsom salts, a consumer product containing mainly magnesium salts, are touted to promote relaxation, relieve muscle tension, and soften and exfoliate the skin. Currently, research is limited, but physiologically it is well known that magnesium plays an important role in maintaining the skin barrier, immune modulation, and hydration (9). This has been seen in more clinically relevant studies looking at mineral mixes, especially Dead Sea salts, which are magnesium-rich. In 2005, Proksch et al showed that bathing in these salts significantly improved skin barrier function as evidenced by improved hydration, reduced skin roughness, and reduced signs of inflammation in patients with atopic dry skin or dermatitis (10), which is consistent with the known roles of magnesium in the body.

These natural and safe compounds are combined with benzalkonium chloride, a potent FDA-approved antimicrobial that is known to be minimally irritating to the skin. Researchers have worked diligently to combine the traditional medicinal philosophies with modern medicine providing a new, novel way to support patients suffering from various skin conditions. The CBD Pure Calm Mani/PediPod formula, containing medical-grade FDA/OTCapproved CBD, lavender, chamomile, oatmeal, and magnesium, truly combines beauty, health, and self-care. It successfully provides a spa treatment, while clinically reducing stress levels, and supporting the health and vitality of the skin, while being supported by years of scientific research.
