The skin-care industry has been especially guilty of this “Here’s the secret you’ve been waiting for!” type of nonsense.  Hundreds and hundreds of millions of dollars spent in hope that at least some of it is a little true. Well, if these have helped you, that’s great news. But let’s talk about what works for most of us:

Together with the industry highest concentration of CBD, these could provide overwhelming relief for a multitude of problems, including chronic skin conditions.

Each ingredient in coloradoCBD Topical Cream has a long-established history of effectiveness.  No “secret breakthrough”, no “recently discovered secret remedy” from an obscure mountain tribe – just decades of demonstrated success.   Designed to overwhelm and repair.
