CBD has been the hottest three letters in the skincare industry of late. With its anti-stress, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties, this wonder ingredient is fast becoming an integral part of our self-care routines.

Now infiltrating Hollywood, celebrities including Jennifer Aniston, Alessandra Ambrosio and Olivia Wilde have leaned into the calming properties of CBD oil to reduce anxiety and stress. One brand that is harnessing the power of CBD in skincare is Poko.

Poko has developed a full range of natural skincare that is exactly what your breakout-prone, irritated skin needs to get back into shape.

Co-founded by Justine O’Hanlon, who is a long-time sufferer of hormonal breakouts due to PCOS, the beauty buff tried to look for solutions to combat her acne. Having worked in the CBD space, she infused CBD with botanicals to create a skincare range that is gentle enough to work on all skin types.

While it is derived from cannabis, it’s important to note that CBD won’t make you feel high. The reason why people feel high when taking cannabis itself is because cannabis also contains another cannabinoid called THC (or Tetrahydrocannabinol), which has strong psychoactive properties. Poko use pure, THC-free CBD extract. Before it makes it on to your bathroom shelf, the CBD in each product has been rigorously tested for quality, safety and purity. After years of working in the CBD and beauty industry, Poko is on a mission to transform the face of skincare products.

By using CBD in combination with skin-loving ingredients, Poko wants to help people change their outlook on skincare and their health. Their new range includes various products that can be easily worked into your routine, all formulated using the best organic ingredients like aloe vera, plant antioxidants and botanical oils to give you happy, healthy, glowing skin.

Popular products in their range include the award-winning Correcting Eye Cream and their bestselling Luxury Facial Oil. The Soothing Serum contains tea tree oil to help fight spot-causing bacteria and is suitable for targeting rosacea, acne and sensitive skin.

New additions to the collection that are must-haves for battling acne breakouts are now available online. Poko’s soothing moisturisers and serums harness the benefits of aloe vera and help alleviate your acne such as a Purifying Gel Cleanser, AHA Exfoliating Treatment, Azelaic Acid Spot Gel, and Brightening Rosewater Toner, which is packed with anti-inflammatory ingredients known for their anti-inflammatory benefits to help achieve clearer skin.
