Why cannabis is considered an extremely effective cosmetic ingredient in Latin America

13.01.2020

Hemp is an extremely effective cosmetic ingredient that consumers can get in various forms thanks to the many exclusive properties of the plant. The effective use of these properties of hemp plant is a priority for flagships, as well as other companies of hemp industry in various countries of the region for the next few years. Despite the fact that the regulatory framework in Latin America did not fully regulate the use of the therapeutic properties of hemp, government agencies are actively moving towards creating a platform where the hemp industry will feel at ease, including in refraction to needs cosmetic industry, enterprises for the manufacture of personal hygiene products, as well as household chemicals. In recent years, the Latin American regulation of hemp breeding has evolved significantly, and the transition to creating an enabling environment for the use of plants in the above categories of management will undoubtedly become a reality in the very near future.

Over the past three years, 15 types of cosmetic products made on the basis of the therapeutic properties of hemp grain and its derivatives have been quite successfully produced and sold in Ukraine. In 2019, the market was investigated, test tests were carried out, and several test batches of natural cosmetics made on the basis of the therapeutic properties of hemp root reinforced with an organomineral complex based on humic acids were introduced to the market for national consumers to use. Given the activity of our European and North American colleagues in introducing various kinds of cosmetic preparations made using drug-free cannabinoids to the global hemp market, we have to monitor the results of studies on this topic that appear in the media. Considering the fact that in Ukraine the registration of the first grade of technical hemp of a therapeutic nature is ending, and the use of the therapeutic properties of leaves and inflorescences of a plant can be regulated only by the adoption of departmental normative legal acts, we focus our readers on the therapeutic properties of the individual components of the plant, which have been officially reported on one of the largest industry events in South America.

In Latin American mills, conditions are actively being created for companies to work within the framework of the general safety rules for the use of manufactured products, which can effectively develop the market for cosmetic products and household chemicals. The Latin American Council of Cosmetics, Personal Care, and Home Appliances Industry Council (CASIC) held a meeting under the general title “Using Various Ingredients from Cannabis in Cosmetic Products” to discuss opportunities for the safe use of the plant and its derivatives as an effective ingredient in cosmetic products produced in the region.

During the event, the speakers focused on the fact that hemp was used as one of the extremely effective cosmetic products for several thousand years. There is written evidence in Chinese treatises that hemp plant as a cosmetic and therapeutic agent was massively used in antiquity - documents date back to 2700 BC. The papyri of Ancient Egypt also describes the effectiveness of hemp as a natural remedy restoring the skin and hair of the body of people and pets, and in Europe the first records of the use of hemp as a cosmetic are dated to the 13th century. It was emphasized that not only cannabinoids, but also terpenes, flavonoids, finols, terpenoids, as well as other components of hemp, have a powerful therapeutic effect on the mammalian body, and these properties are used in modern cosmetics and manufacturers of personal hygiene products and household chemicals to create new products, marketed.

In particular, a study was presented, according to which natural cannabidiol (CBD) positively affects the sebaceous glands of a person and this cannabinoid behaves as a sebostatic agent that has an anti-inflammatory, healing effect that most effectively affects primarily problematic and oily skin. In addition, during the experiments, the antioxidant properties of CBD were confirmed, which makes the use of this cannabinoid in body and hair care products as attractive as possible.

For example, one of the speakers Carlos Caro during his presentation explained to those present that the opening of the system of endogenous cannabinoid receptors marked the beginning of a new era in the study of the therapeutic potential of hemp plants. Therefore, the creation of cosmetics, as well as personal care products using the therapeutic properties of hemp is not only promising, but similar products are already actively being promoted in the markets of countries such as the USA, Canada, Columbia, etc. Conducting various kinds of research and experiments clearly demonstrates that the use of various technical hemp ingredients, in the leaves and inflorescences of which tetrahydrocannabinol does not exceed 0.3%, is safe and can be used on an industrial scale as one of the main most effective cosmetic ingredients.

Mr. Ivonne Alban, Regulatory Coordinator for the Chamber of Cosmetics and Toilet Industry of Colombia, emphasized during his speech that “the various constituents of hemp, as well as their derivatives, are included in international reference lists that enable their use in the cosmetics industry because they are natural. " In Colombia, in particular, the use of industrial hemp as an ingredient in cosmetics and personal care products has clear guidelines that maximize the commercialization of the therapeutic properties of the plant. In particular, today in Colombia more than 300 sanitary notifications from the National Institute for Food and Drug Administration (Instituto Nacional de Vigilancia de Medicamentos y Alimentos, Invima) have already been issued, biting the production or sale of cosmetic products made using various components of hemp . 

Paola Becvar, co-chair of the Latin American Committee for Personal Care Products at the United States, said that “the FDA continues to explore the use of cannabis-derived ingredients in all products within the purview of the above government agency. The main emphasis is on the possibilities of using the various components of the plant or its derivatives in food products, food additives, as well as pharmaceutical preparations, with the aim of developing a flexible regulatory framework that enables these sectors of modern hemp breeding to actively develop. ” 

The operative part of the documents signed during the event emphasizes that “Hemp is an extremely effective cosmetic ingredient that consumers can get in various forms thanks to the many exclusive properties of the plant. The effective use of these properties of hemp plant is a priority for flagships, as well as other companies of hemp industry in various countries of the region for the next few years. Despite the fact that the regulatory framework in Latin America did not fully regulate the use of the therapeutic properties of hemp, government agencies are actively moving towards creating a platform where the hemp industry will feel at ease, including in refraction to needs cosmetic industry, enterprises for the manufacture of personal hygiene products, as well as household chemicals. In recent years, the Latin American regulation of hemp breeding has evolved significantly, and the transition to creating an enabling environment for the use of plants in the above categories of management will undoubtedly become a reality in the very near future. ”
