CBDa + Active Ingredients : The Perfect Pair | NTY Blog - No, thank you

Can I use CBDa with other active ingredients?


You may have found yourself wondering whether it’s ok to use some of your favorite active ingredients with full-spectrum CBDa and the answer is: ABSOLUTELY! Concerns like dark spots, uneven texture and fine lines may vary based on the individual (which is when you select the active best for you), but the anti-inflammatory benefits of full-spectrum CBDa are something we ALL could use a little more of. 


Let’s explore why CBDa is the perfect partner to (4) of our (and probably your) favorite active ingredients but first, a quick recap to get you started:


  • CBDa, or Cannabidiolic Acid, is the main phytocannabinoid found in the Cannabis Sativa Plant and the precursor to CBD. It’s a potent antioxidant with even more potent anti-inflammatory properties that may help with skin concerns including eczema and psoriasis. 


  • Active Ingredients can be defined as simply as this: expert ingredients that work with the purpose of helping fix a specific concern. 


  • Inflammation is your body’s way of telling you it’s irritated with something, so it goes into defense mode. Some common examples are redness, irritability and yes, even breakouts.


Common Active Ingredients in CBDa Skin Care





  • Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant known for its ability to brighten discolorations, support the skin’s ability to produce collagen and boost defenses against harmful environmental stressors.

  • CBDa Partnership: thanks to its potent anti-inflammatory properties, CBDa helps keep skin’s barrier calm, collected and better receptive to ingredients like Vitamin C. As an added bonus, the fact that it’s a fellow antioxidant means the skin is even less susceptible to environmental stressors which can cancel out Vitamin C’s brightening hard work.


    Try our Oil for All Day which combines 3% THDA (Vitamin C) with 300mg of full-spectrum CBD + CBDa. This CBD face oil is formulated to reduce the appearance of dark spots, calm redness, and fend off harmful environment stressors.






    • Also known as Alpha Hydroxy Acids, these chemical exfoliants work to smooth the skin’s surface, dissolving excess build-up that can cause the look of dullness, congested pores, and uneven tone and texture. One of the most common AHAs is Glycolic Acid. 


    • CBDa Partnership: one of the downsides of AHAs is that some of the more sensitive skin types might find them irritating or drying. Thanks to the moisturizing and soothing properties of CBDa, even the most sensitive or “new-to-acids” users can experience all the benefits AHAs have to offer without the negative side effects.




    Try our Facial Cleanser for Anytime that combines Glycolic Acid with 50mg of nano emulsified, full-spectrum CBD + CBDa. This cruelty-free CBD cleanser gently removes dirt & impurities while gently exfoliating your face, leaving it nourished and hydrated.






    • Hyaluronic Acid is a humectant that helps attract water to the skin for maximum hydration and a plump appearance. Signs of dehydrated skin can include a feeling of tightness and irritability, dullness and more pronounced fine lines and wrinkles.


    • CBDa Partnership: what you may not know is moisture and hydration are different! Hyaluronic Acid acts as a hydrator (aka water content), while CBDa benefits act as a moisturizer (aka oil content) – it works like a seal to lock in the hydration! Add that in with its soothing anti-inflammatory properties and you have one happy skin barrier.



    Try our Mask for Night that combines Sodium Hyaluronate (a lightweight, Hyaluronic Acid derivative) with 50mg of nano-emulsified, full-spectrum CBD + CBDa. This hydrating, all-night mask smooths out tired skin, leaving a glowing complexion in the morning.






    • Niacinamide, also known as Vitamin B3 is one of the most versatile actives out there helping with everything from redness and discolorations to excess oil production and enlarged pores.


    • CBDa Partnership: CBDa and Niacinamide are prime examples of more is more. They both have anti-inflammatory properties that help fend off environmental stressors and keep skin’s moisture barrier happy and thriving. For those suffering from highly-sensitive or stripped skin, this is a winning combo.




    Try our Mask for Night that combines Niacinamide with 50mg of nano-emulsified, full-spectrum CBD + CBDa. 




    If you’re already feeling like you’ve perfected incorporating CBDa benefits into your daily skincare routine, now’s the time to think about your body! Our #1 selling Cream for Relief helps relieve all of life’s aches and pains with 500mg of full-spectrum CBD + CBDa.
