Now, let us look at the cons: similar to a bunch of other essential oils, the main components of lavender oil are potentially irritating fragrant components. The two main components are linalyl acetate (about 50%) and linalool (about 35%) and both autoxidise on exposure to the air forming strong contact allergens. To make things even worse, lavender oil seems to be cytotoxic from concentrations as low as 0.25% (concentration up to 0.125% were ok).

Other than smelling nice and making cosmetic formulas also smell nice, Ylang Ylang might have some antimicrobial and antioxidant benefits and also works as an insect repellent. Its nice smell is also commonly known as being relaxing and calming (also backed up by a few recent studies), but it is an aromatherapy use case (when inhaled) so this probably does not count much skincare-wise.

We have to start by writing how fascinated we are by the amazing lavender fields of Provance and we do love pretty much everything about lavender: its look, its color, its scent. but, when it comes to skincare, lavender is a questionable ingredient that you probably do not want in your skincare products.

Propanediol is a natural alternative for the often used and often bad-mouthed propylene glycol. It's produced sustainably from corn sugar and it's Ecocert approved.

On the other hand, the nice smell also means allergen fragrant components and 37.6% of EU sensitizers counts as quite high and the oil is considered to have high skin sensitization potential. It is a good idea to avoid if your skin is sensitive.

Sweet, exotic and floral, it’ no surprise that Ylang Ylang is a popular essential oil. It is coming from the yellow, fragrant flowers of the Cananga tree native to tropical Asia and, similar to other essential oils, it is a chemically complex mixture with several pros and cons.

It’s mainly a solvent for ingredients that do not like to dissolve in oils but rather in water.

Good old water, aka H2O. The most common skincare ingredient of all. You can usually find it right in the very first spot of the ingredient list, meaning it’s the biggest thing out of all the stuff that makes up the product.

These two work together to help the skin retain water, regulate sebum production and fight free radicals (to slow down the signs of ageing).

It seems the products have launched at the right time as well, as this green ingredient has gained some celeb fans like Alessandra Ambrosio and Gwyneth Paltrow.

The skincare collection, which is suitable for vegans and vegetarians, is made up of a Serum, £19.99 , Day Cream, £14.99 , Night Cream, £14.99 , and two varying strengths of Muscle Balm, from £14.99 , and launched in shops and online today.

The products claim to tackle skin complaints like dryness, oiliness and aching muscles, with the antioxidant-rich hemp seed extract and cannabidiol.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is the newest and hottest ingredient to hit the beauty world, and for a good reason. It's said to treat a whole range of ailments, from acne and dermatitis to anxiety and sleep issues.

Other luxe brands like MGC Derma were quick to launch creams featuring the new 'miracle' ingredient, but Holland & Barrett has just pipped it to claim the title of the first high-street retailer to create its very own affordable range of CBD-infused products.
