GLOSSARY
ALMOND OIL

Almond oil effectively soothes and hydrates the skin. It is rich in vitamins and minerals, softens the skin, protects it from the harmful effects of UV rays and helps establish a healthy skin barrier. After use, it leaves the skin radiant, soft and supple. It is one of the most popular oils, suitable for even the most sensitive skin.

ALOE VERA EXTRACT

Aloe vera has exceptional moisturizing properties, soothes irritated skin, softens and hydrates it. Due to its strong anti-inflammatory and cooling effect, it is appreciated especially in the care of burns, but it is actually an ingredient for all occasions. It regenerates the skin and also protects it from the harmful effects of UV rays, reduces itching, redness and has an intense antioxidant effect.

Aloe vera also brings incredible moisture, shine and volume to the hair. It contains a huge amount of vitamins and proteins and is therefore a great choice for hair care. Soothes itchy scalp, deeply cleanses mainly oily hair, strengthens and repairs hair ends, helps prevent hair loss and can promote hair growth.

ANTIOXIDANTS

Antioxidants are sometimes called »free-radical scavengers«. Free radicals are waste substances produced by cells as body processes food and is exposed to environmental factors, like UV rays, pollution, cigarette smoke and othe chemicals.

When free radicals are not properly neutralized it causes oxidative sress, which can harm cells and the body. Antioxidants help to neutralize free radicals in our bodies and skin and this is considered to boost overall health.

Antioxidants also protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals. . When used daily, they can help reduce and prevent visible signs of aging, reduce sun spots, and calm inflamation of the skin. Some antioxidants increase moisture retention and as such provide the skin with hydration – this help revitalize dull-looking skin.

The way that antioxidants help correct signs of aging is because oxidative stres scan break down collagen, reduce skin's natural repair process, trigers inflamation and this can eventually cause fine lines, wrinkless, loss and dull skin. Antioxidants can correct and prevent these visable signs and give more youthfull look.

Antioxidants can also prevent sun damage by reducing inflammation, preventing sunburns and provide strong protection against UV damage and photoaging.

But beside all that, antioxidants help skin repir itself – by reducing inflammation, antioxidants give the skin time and space to repir itself which results in correction of visable damage. And some antioxidants also stimulates collagen synthesis, which contributes to more youthfull looking skin.

Last but not least antioxidants can help brighten skin tone. Free radicals and sun damage can also cause changes in melanin production whic leads to dark spots and ueven skin tone. Some antioxidants also works by inhibiting enzyme which stimulates melanin production (tyrosinase).

In short, antioxidants are damage defenders that help slow skin aging.

ARNICA extract

Arnica is a well-known plant in folk vegetation and was used by our grandmothers for pain after hard work. Arnica extract contains terpenoids, flavonoids, coumarins, fatty acids, essential oil, caffeic acid, sequiterpene lactones and other ingredients and is traditionally used in European monograph to relieve bruises, sprains and localized muscle pain.

BELINAL® (Silver fir wood extract)

INCI: Abies Alba Wood Extract

Belinal® is a patented premium herbal extract of silver fir branches from unspoiled largest European forest formation. Belinal® is extremly rich source of unique blend of different polyphenols such as lignans, phenolic acid and flavonoids, many of them are powerfull antioxidants. Scientists have so far confirmed more than 36 different polyphenols in silver fir wood extract, and about 70% of the extract consists of polyphenols, most of which are lignans. Most of the polyphenols found in Belinal® have known biological, pharmacological and clinical effects and have been shown to contribute to health.

Our brain are particularly vulnerable for oxidative stress damage. Free radicals produced at oxidative stress causes damage in our cells and in such case antioxidants plays vital role in maintaining our health and cognitive functions. The antioxidant activity of Belinal® is one of the basic mechanisms that contributes to all other activities. Studies measuring the removal of the biologically important hydroxylene radical free radicals have shown that Belinal® has a higher antioxidant power than resveratrol, twice as much as vitamin E and as much as four times as much as green tea.

Besides powerful antioxidative activity, Belinal ® was shown to have also vasorelaxant effect on brain arteries, inhibits inflammation and as such is highly potent for healthy aging and improving cognitive function.

Belinal® ia also clinically proven and patented extract for skin care. Due to their low molecular weight, polyphenols penetrate the skin extremely well, thus effectively protecting the skin from aging.

Belinal® has been shown in studies to have a strong antioxidant effect, stimulates the synthesis of collagen and elastin, and has anti-inflammatory and regenerative effects. As a powerful natural free radical scavenger Belinal® stimulates cells to increase antioxidant power, captures and neutralizes free radicals before they can cause oxidative stress damage.

Belinal® is a first-class active ingredient in skin care with proven efficacy, as it was shown in a placebo-controlled clinical study:

37% reduction in wrinkle size

34% reduction in wrinkle volume

34% increase in collagen and elastin synthesis

43% increase in skin elasticity

41% reduction ih hyperpigmentation

26% increase skin moisture

20% reduction in transepidermal water loss

9% increase in UV damage prevention

 

Beside our body and our skin also hair is exposed to many harmful effects every day, such as the sun, pollution, coloring, brushing… UV rays cause the breakdown of fibers, affect the pigment melanin and the protein part of the hair (keratin) and cause free radicals, which leads to changes in the hair surface, to the breakdown of proteins and fats, lipid peroxidation, changes in color and shine, and to mechanical damage to the hair. Antioxidants have been used in research to improve the mechanical properties of hair, preserve color and shine, and protect it from the harmful effects of the environment. Thus, antioxidants (like Belinal®) can protect hair from the signs of aging, the appearance of gray hair, from hair loss and promote the growth of new, strong hair.

CANNABIDIOL – look CBD

 

CANNABIS PLANT

In cannabis plant we find complex combination of chemical compounds. More than 400 chemical entites where identified, with more than 60 of them are cannabinoids. Most known cannabinoids are delta-9-tetrahydrocannabidiol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD), but also other „minor“ cannabinoids are extensivelly studied and are showing great potential. These includes cannabigerol (CBG), cannabinol (CBN), cannabichromene (CBC), tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCv), tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA), cannabidiolic acid (CBDA) and others. In our products non-pychoactive Cannabis sativa L. (Hemp) is used. Hemp is a variety of Cannabis plant that is grown specifically for industrial use. It has very low levels of THC and higher levels od CBD.

Besides cannabinoids vast number of bioactive relevant compounds are found in cannabis plant. These includes terpens, terpenoids, polyphenols (including flavonoids, phenolic adics, phenol amides and lignans) which all are known for their therapeutic properties - among others anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, analgesic, anticonvulsive, antidepressant, anxiolytic, anticancer, antitumor, neuroprotective, anti-mutagenic, anti-allergic, antibiotic and andi-diabetic properties.

CBD

The mechanism of action of the CBD is not fully elucidated, but it is clear that among other things, it increases the level of our own endocannabinoids, and also helps to rebalance our own cannabinoid system.

The endocannabinoid system regulates the majority of nervous functions, ie. mood, stress response, metabolism, appetite, circadian rhythm (sleep), immune system, fertility… it is also activated during various injuries - both physical injuries and emotional upheavals. It is a kind of protective system that regulates the response to external and internal factors. With the reduced functioning of the endocannabinoid system, which is reflected in various disorders and health problems, the addition of plant cannabinoids is beneficial for restoring balance in the body

The skin is the largest organ of the human body with a key protective, defensive function. The endocannabinoid system is crucial for regulating the processes also in the skin - from stress response, pain management, inflammation, immune response, moisture and oil production. 

CBD is a natural active ingredient that softens and moisturizes the skin, acting as an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory through regulating this system. Therefore, the use of products with the addition of CBD can serve as a one-time care to maintain the health, elasticity and radiance of the skin and / or as a prevention against dehydration, damage, harmful effects of external factors, premature aging and many other skin problems.

Studies in people with acne-prone skin are particularly encouraging, as they have shown that CBD reduces the production of sebum (an oil secreted by the sebaceous glands) and thus normalizes the pathological production of fat.

Studies have also shown that topical treatment with CBD-enriched products increases skin elasticity and hydration, reduces itching, and soothes inflammation and redness, thus helping to soothe skin rashes.

In addition to alleviating skin rashes, CBD-enriched products can also have a preventive effect on skin prone to atopic dermatitis by establishing a normal skin barrier and modulating the immune response.

There are also promising studies of the use of CBD-enriched products in chronic autoimmune skin diseases - psoriasis, which is characterized by excessive cell division and the formation of hard, itchy rashes that peel. In addition to reducing inflammation, CBD also regulates the division and differentiation of keratinocytes - cells that over-divide in psoriasis.

In addition to cannabinoid receptors, our skin also contains many other receptors that CBD acts on, including vanilloid receptors type 1 and 2, which play a role in translating pain stimuli and the inflammatory response.

Compared to other topical products (creams, ointments, oils…) that temporarily soothe the skin, CBD-enriched products not only reduce symptoms, but can completely eliminate and prevent them.

Due to the multiple action of CBD, it can also affect the translation of pain stimuli and has an anti-inflammatory effect on various injuries (sprains, blows, swelling,…). CBD is better known for its beneficial effects on the body, whether taken in drops or applied to the skin in the form of creams, ointments, lotions… but cannabis extract is also rich in nutrients and thus nourishes and strengthens the hair. Because it contains antioxidants, it also protects the hair from the harmful effects of the environment. It also has a beneficial effect on dry scalp, soothes inflammation and thus can reduce dandruff, helps with seborrheic dermatitis, eczema, itchy and scaly scalp. After being absorbed on the scalp, cannabis extract promotes its own growth and thus leads to long, strong hair. By stimulating circulation and reducing inflammation on the scalp, it can also prevent hair loss.

CHAMOMILE EXTRACT

ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM

Endocannabinoid system is a complex regulatory system which is responsible for maintenance of balance of practical every system in our body, among others: majority of nervous system functions, mood, stress response, pain, inflammation, metabolism, apetite, sleep, sleep-wake cycle, memory and immune response. Endocannabinoid system involves three core components: endocannabinoids (cannabinoids which are produced in our own body), receptors and enzmyes. Two main endocannabinoids identified so far are 2-AG and anandamid.

Receptors can be imagined as keylock and cannabinoids as key. There are two types of cannabinoid receptors (CB1 and CB2), which are interacting with endocannabinoids as well with external (plant) cannabinoids.

Receptors are distributed throughout our body and when one of our system goes out of balance, endocannabinoid system is activated and help us to restore the balance. It was show that endoccanabinoid system is actived as a result of stress, pain, anxiety and inflammatinon and so enables that out body functions also in extreme situation. Bit if those stimuli are prolonged, our endocannabinoid system can not cope anymore, which can result in many health issues. With providing our body with exogenous cannabinoids (from plants) we can restore that unique regulatory system and help our body to function better. 

People (and animals) have different endocannabinoid system, which is affected by genetic, life style and also diet. Also each body can react differently and that is why there is no unique dosing when using CBD products.

FULL SPECTRUM EXTRACT

Full spectrum CBD extract contains multiple cannabis compounds, including various cannabinoids (THC, CBD and other minor cannabinoids), terpens, terpenoids,...and so presents fullest profile of cannabis plant compounds and their benefical effect. Full spectrum CBD products can contain up to 0.2% THC, which generally does not produce any pychoactive effects. The synergy of mixture of various bioactive cannabis compounds can result in so called entourage effect, which means enhanced and synergistic effect when full spectrum of cannabinoids, terpens and other botanical compounds naturally occuring in cannabis are consumed together.

Liposomes are made with lecithin, which by itself efficiently prevents and/or relieves different types of skeletal and joint ailments; sustains concentration, and improves memorization.

Using liposomes in skin care also have huge advantages. Skin is our first defensive barrier against external factors and prevent many substances from entering underlying layers. When using cosmetics this could be limitations to deliver active ingredient to the target site. By using liposomes we can overcome some restrictions such as low penetration, solubility, stability, duration of effect and high side effect.

We can imagine liposomes as small bubbles with phospholipid membrane and active ingredients packed inside. But liposomes can, beside being vehicles for active ingredients, play a role as active agent themselves.

For example when skin is damaged due to lack of moisture or effected with eczema, liposome scan interact with skin lipids to return to normal state and restoring skin barier to function proprely.

When using as carriers for active ingredients they may facilitate the penetration, solubility, stability, prolong the duration of effect, targeting the desired site of action.

They also showed a positive effect of peppermint essential oil on cognition during the performance of difficult mental tasks and a significant reduction in mental fatigue.

POLYPHENOLS

Polyphenols are a category of plant compounds and many of them offers various health benefits. Main acknowledge benefits of polyphenols is their anti-oxidative activity (neuralizing harmful free radicals which can damage the cells and increase the risk of conditions like cancer, diabetes and heart disease).  Besides their anti-oxidant activity, polyphenols can also reduce inflmmation, which is considered as a root cause of many chronic diseases.

Polyphenols are found in many plants, including cannabis, as well as in some well known food and drinks, such as dark chocolate, tea, berries and red wine.

More than 8000 types of poyphenols are described, which are categorized into 4 main groups: flavonoids (eg. uercetin, kaempferol, catechins, and anthocyanins), phenolic acids (stilbenes, lignans), phenolic amides (capsaicinoids found in chilli peppers, avenanthramides) and other polyphenols (resveratrol, ellagic acid, curcumin, lignans).

SUPERCITICAL CO2 EXTRACTION

Supercritical CO2 extraction is non-toxic, environmentally-friendly, highly efficient, clean, safe  extraction method and it is currently the „gold standard“ in cannabis industry. This extraction method leaves no traces of toxins behind. Supercritical CO2 is heated and passed through the cannabis buds. The gas is pushed through a condenser which allows the gas to liquefy again and be recycled so that it can be used for the extraction process again.

With adjusting the temperature this method extract certain compounds from the plant without destroying their essence. In such way also fragile compounds (such as terpens for example) can be efficiently extracted and the end poroduct is pure,highly concentrated, potent oil.

SQUALANE

Squalane is a derivat of squalene, a natural occuring substance which is found in certain fish and plant oils, like olive oil. It is also a lipid produced naturally by our own skin cells and works as natural moisturizer. Peak production occures in the teen years and gradually slowing down in 20s, 30s. This results in drier and rougher skin.

Mimicking skin's natural oil, makes it excellent emollient and can help your skin look healthier and more vibrant. Regular use can also boost vollagen production, thus make skin firmer.

They restore radiance, revitalize it, improve skin elasticity, moisturize the skin for a long time, as they maintain and repair the natural skin barrier.

Truffles contain a range of bioactive ingredients, from fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants. Due to its high content of fatty acids and emollient action, truffles perfectly supports the intactness of the skin barrier and thus ensures smooth and suitably hydrated skin. In addition, it contains many flavonoids that act as antioxidants that protect the skin from the harmful effects of the environment.

Antioxidants remove free radicals that ultimately damage the skin, which can lead to signs of aging, wrinkles, blemishes and the like, and therefore the high content of antioxidants in facial care products is crucial to eliminate the visible signs of aging.

Truffles are also a rich source of Vitamin C, which is not only a powerful antioxidant but also inhibits the enzyme tyrosinase (which is crucial for the pigment formation process), thus preventing the formation of dark spots on the skin and thus provides a lighter and more even skin tone. Truffles are one of the most potent brightness of the skin.

In addition to vitamin C, truffles also contain an abundance of B-complex vitamins, such as e.g. vitamin B12, which also reduces dark spots on the skin; vitamin B6, which in addition to promote brightness also helps to eliminate irritation and itching, and vitamin B3, which is known to help repair damaged skin.

Vitamin C which plays an important role in the functioning of the immune system, reducing fatigue and exhaustion and contributing to the functioning of the nervous system.

VITAMIN E

Vitamin E is widely known for its beneficial effects on skin health and appearance. It is used to reduce inflammation and make the skin look younger. Our skin is - more than other tissues - exposed to environmental factors (both physical and chemical), such as e.g. UV rays, which causes oxidative stress. On the skin, this is reflected in many short-term and long-term consequences, such as redness, swelling, thickening of the skin, wrinkles, increased incidence of cancer or previous lesions. The aging of the skin under the influence of UV rays ("Photoaging" ) is only one of the harmful effects of free radicals in the skin. Free radicals can also be formed during inflammation, autoimmune processes, keratinization disorders and vasculitis (inflammation of small blood vessels in the skin).

Vitamin E has an anti-inflammatory effect and is one of the main natural antioxidants that can protect the skin from the harmful effects of oxidative stress. This can play a key role in preventing skin aging due to UV rays, as well as in various skin diseases where increased oxidative stress and inflammation occur

ZINC OXIDE

Topical application of zinc is used in dermatology to protect the skin and as an aid in wound healing and regeneration. Zinc oxide is inert by nature (does not cause reactions in the body), so it is suitable for both children and people with very sensitive skin. Zinc has an antibacterial, adstringent and protective effect and is crucial for the proper functioning of the skin barrier. It is therefore an ideal supplement in products for problematic skin with rashes, acne skin or skin, prone to atopic dermatitis.

Studies have shown the beneficial effects of topical zinc application on warts, genital herpes, dermatophytosis (fungal infection), bromhidrosis (smelly sweating) and unpleasant foot odour, skin mold, acne, psoriasis, eczema, ulcers, skin keratoses (peraemas), keloids (scar type) as well as a beneficial effect on reducing wrinkles.

Zinc oxide is present in Nabie CBD Rash Balm for problem skin in the form of microzinc, which does not pass through the skin and thus does not cause systemic effects or loading into the body.
