Frequently Asked Questions
What is full-spectrum CBD?
full spectrum CBD contains all of the cannabinoids naturally found in the cannabis plant. when these cannabinoids are all present and working together, they boost each other’s overall efficacy, giving the user - you! - an expanded skincare experience that’s more than skin deep.
Why put CBD in skincare?
Are there psychoactive properties to full-spectrum CBD?
no, full spectrum CBD - while it does contain all of the cannabinoids present in the cannabis plant - contains only .3% or less of THC, the psychoactive component that makes you feel “high.” so you won’t trip, but we do envision a new notion of what your skincare can feel like beyond the physical when full-spectrum CBD is combined with an intentional ritual ;-)
if you can believe it, the body contains its own endocannabinoid system (ECS), which can mean it’s very receptive to CBD! when applied topically, the broad range of cannabinoids found in full-spectrum CBD activate the ECS by binding to the CB2 receptors on and within the skin’s tissues. its most apparent and immediate benefit can be seen as reduced inflammation and pain, but it can also help to balance + regulate sebum production in the epidermis. farewell stressed out skin, you won’t be missed.
What is the QR code on the label for?
each product has a unique QR code relating to its specific batch. when scanned, a direct link to the lab and testing facility will show you the exact breakdown of cannabinoids in your very own bottle of mary.!
I have oily skin, is a face oil good for me?
yes! our blend of botanical oils are noncomedogenic, and in many cases, a face oil can be especially great for oily skin! to start, use mary. just before bed as your final step in your skincare routine (or before/mixed into a moisturizing cream). this blend of oils can replenish the skin’s natural oil balance overnight, meaning less oil production throughout the day. nice. B-)
What about sensitive skin? Acne?
mary. is especially helpful to sensitive skin as well as acne prone skin! our full-spectrum CBD will aid in reducing any painful breakouts and inflammation in the skin, while our antioxidant rich botanical oils can help to nourish, balance, and regulate.
I don’t really have a skincare routine, but I’m looking for something new to add, is mary. a good pick for me?
sure! mary.’s versatile. whether you’re looking for a moisturizing addition to your existing routine - even if that routine is just one step - in search of topical relief for inflamed, stressed skin - face and beyond - or just looking to deeply nourish your skin and spirit whenever you’re in need of some extra care, mary. is here for you.
I already have a 10 step skincare ritual, where does mary. fit in?
mary. is perfect as a moisturizer - day or night! use it as the final step of your routine or you before your favorite cream moisturizer - you can even mix a few drops of mary. right into it, too! & voila, your daily moisturizer just got a lot cooler. B-) OR if you’re into it, make a night of mary. once a week as your oil of choice before a deep facial massage. trust us, you will not regret it.
