Free Radicals: What They Are & Why They’re Bad for Skin

by | | 0 comment(s)

Our CBD Infused Skincare Collection boasts “Free Radical Scavenging” ingredients, which sounds great, but maybe only because “Free Radicals” sound so terrifying. What in the world are free radicals and why should I be worried about them?

You might remember discussing molecular structure in 7th Grade Science Class: “Everything is made of molecules, molecules are made of atoms, atoms are made from pairs of electrons.”

What you may not remember, (I certainly didn’t) is that a break in the atoms chemical bond can separate a pair of electrons, creating what is called, a free radical. Now you have a broken atom, in hot pursuit of the electron needed to re-pair. And that atom will steal an electron from wherever possible, including your skin. This cycle will eventually lead to free radical damage through our skin cells causing dark or discolored spots, blemishes, weakened skin, wrinkles, etc.

Now, those “Free Radical Scavenging” ingredients are starting to sound even better, huh? But how do they work?

Antioxidants, also known as “Free Radical Fighters,” include a wide range of molecules but unlike most, the antioxidant does not require paired electrons to maintain stability. When antioxidants are present, they can and will donate an electron to a free radical, stabilizing the atom and ending the chain reaction.

Carolina’s Best CBD Infused Skin Care Collection is jam-packed with ingredients carefully selected for their high antioxidant content. Avocado, Hempseed, Argan, and Grapeseed Oils. Aloe Vera, Rosehip, Shitake Mushroom Extract, and Rosemary are just a few of our all-natural selections to cleanse, balance and fight for healthy glowing skin.

An antioxidant-rich diet and skincare routine are your best defenses against free radical damage. Shop Carolina’s Best CBD Infused Skin Care Collection today!
