Back in May 2019, it was announced that Canopy Growth, the World’s largest cannabis firm, had bought British beauty brand This Works in a £43m deal that would see it launch a range of CBD infused beauty products.
Now, the combination of Canopy’s expertise and knowledge in the CBD market, together with the heritage of This Works in the wellness market comes to fruition with the launch of This Works first skincare line-up of CBD Boosters.
The range consists of five clinically proven and 98% natural skincare boosters blended with 1% pure hemp-derived CBD isolate and active molecules.
The ingredients are held in a unique bi-phase serum that promises to deliver powerful results without irritation.
Each booster is designed to be applied alone as an intensive boosting treatment or mixed into your regular moisturiser for a gentler effect, and an important difference with these boosters is that in addition to their use for the face, you can incorporate them into your body care regime too.
In keeping with the This Works ethos, as well as being 98% natural, the products are cruelty-free, vegan and affordably priced at £38 for 30ml.
