Consumer Preference Drives the CBD Skin Care Products Market despite the Stringent Regulatory Landscape in Many Countries

Tue, 09 June 2020 10:08

The regulatory landscape for the utility of cannabidiol (CBD) in beauty products remains stringent. As inspections are set to increase, manufacturing sectors are laying emphasis on compliance. The global CBD skin care products market was valued at USD 422.5 million in 2019 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 32.4% during the forecast period, 2020–2029.

Regulations Regarding the Use of CBD in Beauty Products


The utilization of cannabidiol in the beauty care segment is harmonized within the European Cosmetic Regulation 1223/2009, under entry 306 Narcotics, Natural, and Synthetic. The regulation prohibits the use of cannabis extract in cosmetics as it is a banned substance in Schedule 1 of the single convention on Narcotics Drugs.


Australia strictly regulated the use of CBD in the personal care industry, limiting the sales of CBD skincare products in the country. Under the Australian Law, plant growers cannot harvest the hemp plant unless it is licensed by the Federal Office for Drug Control under stringent security conditions. Officials claimed that CBD skincare products prescribed by physicians do not achieve accurate results, which eventually led to their discontinuation.
