CannaBloom Cosmetics™ Bring the Soothing Power of CBD to Skin Care
When it comes to the cosmetics industry, everyone is looking for the next powerful antioxidant to protect and beautify the skin at the same time. Dr. Luke Zippi found it in CBD derived from hemp cultivated on a South Carolina farm.
Zippi is the pharmacist behind CannaBloom, the Nature’s Highway cosmetics line made with CBD oil that comes from hemp grown and extracted on the company’s farm in Neeses, S.C. CBD has long been lauded for its health benefits, praised by those suffering from issues like anxiety, sleep problems or chronic pain. Those same healing properties convey to the skin, given CBD’s ability to calm inflammation and help with acne control.
“If you look at any of the beauty products that we see out there, the big buzz word is antioxidant. And CBD is a potent antioxidant,” says Zippi, who works in a family-owned compounding pharmacy in Melbourne Beach, Florida.
“It has really good anti-inflammatory properties and antioxidant properties, and those two things alone are enough to put in any face cream and know that it's going to be beneficial,” he adds. “There's no real negative side effects to it that I can see.”
‘We don’t cut any corners’
And the Nature’s Highway CBD that goes into CannaBloom cosmetics carries the bonus of being derived directly by the company itself, right down to the hemp plants cloned and grown by a third-generation family of farmers. Contrast that with other CBD merchants who outsource their hemp plants or CBD oil, if they even know where it comes from at all.
“What I love about Nature's Highway is, you are not getting anything outsourced,” Zippi says. “Everything is done correctly. I love that they own the farm; I love that they do the extraction the right way. They’re a stickler about making sure everything's done right, which I can appreciate as a pharmacist. So we don't cut any corners.”
In fact, the quality of Nature’s Highway CBD initially impressed Zippi and led him to become involved with the company. At his Florida pharmacy, he takes pure CBD oil that’s been verified by third-party testing and converts it into products like creams, sunscreen and lip gloss. True to the mission of a company that responsibly grows its own hemp, CannaBloom is paraben-free and made with only naturally derived products.
“We’re not using anything that shouldn’t be in there,” Zippi says.

Becoming a Standard
Since the U.S. government gave CBD the tacit green light in the 2018 Farm Bill, which legalized industrial hemp, studies on the compound have skyrocketed. That includes CBD’s effect on the skin. “The data on CBD is starting to pour out now,” Zippi says. “It’s not anecdotal anymore.”
Scientists are seeing that CBD-infused cosmetics add another layer of protection to the skin, the compound’s anti-inflammatory properties helping to heal skin damage, and its antioxidants helping to prevent it. There are also associations, still being researched, that CBD can help prevent clogged pores and play a role in heading off acne.
It all points to CBD and companies like Nature’s Highway playing a larger and larger role in cosmetics going forward. CBD “is going to be a staple item” in the beauty industry, Zippi says. “I think it's going to become a standard, maybe your next Vitamin E or Vitamin D.”
