Created with only the good stuff, Fifth & Root puts clean skincare top of mind. With plant-based products, this skincare suite protects and transforms with each step. Made with natural ingredients including antioxidant-rich plants, gemstones, CBD full spectrum extract, nourishing oils, and terpenes, Fifth & Root skincare provides everything you need to support and maintain healthy skin by going back to basics.
THE ENTOURAGE EFFECT: It’s all about the Entourage Effect (and no, we’re not talking about the hit show!). Scientists define this powerful effect as the ability of many extractions to work together to amplify the therapeutic benefits of the cannabis plant’s individual components — meaning that the medicinal influence of the whole plant is greater than the sum of its parts. Fifth & Root formulas incorporate whole plant extracts that include CBD, THC, and over 400 trace compounds such as natural terpenes. Terpenes are unsaturated hydrocarbons that are highly aromatic and determine the smell of many plants and herbs. Commonly found in essential oils and resins, terpenes may offer many benefits to humans, including anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial effects.
CRYSTALS AND GOOD VIBES: What do you think when you hear the term vibration? In a variety of healing traditions, crystals are used to help people raise their personal frequency. This follows the thought that everything in life has a vibration, and the “vibes’’ that we put out impact our health, wellness, and life. Aligned with the chakras, crystalline structures are believed to help us find balance and connect to our energy centers. The various sizes, thicknesses, and colors of stones lead to diverse resonances. Understanding your goals can impact what crystals might be best to meditate with or incorporate in your routine.
WHOLE PLANT CBD: A potent antioxidant that protects skin from damage, whole plant CBD allows cells to vibrate at their highest potential. Cannabis, in general, resonates at a high healing frequency. These vibrations and frequencies stem from metaphysics and vitalism, referring to our inner forces that give life.
ADAPTOGENS: Plant compounds that help to uplift stressed skin operating at a low frequency. These herbs are believed to help reduce stress, aid the body in coping with environmental aggressors, and have anti-aging effects, among many other health benefits.
COLD PRESSED OILS: Exotic oils from around the world have been cold-pressed to preserve their innate vibrations and powerful healing force.
ESSENTIAL OILS: Pure grade essential oils are the essence of plant life. They are the divine vibration of Mother Earth, of sunlight, of fourth dimensional frequencies. Not only do they smell wonderful, they can also completely change our vibrations to higher frequencies.
POWERFUL PLANT ACTIVES: Similar to essential oils, each plant active is high in concentrated energy from nature aimed at improving the skin without harming the cells or over-stressing.
SOLAR INFUSED HERBS: Captures the spectrum of solar frequencies known to have healing and energizing properties to the body. Herbs are infused during the Spring and Fall Equinox, as lunar energy is at its peak during these times, maximizing healing potential.
GEMSTONES: Crystals formed in our planet are dense mineral composites that hold spectacular vibrations. They raise our frequencies to hold more light and can help ground us with their dense vibrational energy.
WINTER SKIN TIPS: Winter is a tough season to maintain glowing, hydrated skin. Cold, harsh weather and winds take their toll and mentally the darker, bitter days can lower our vibes. To stay ahead of winter’s wrath, here are a few ways you can prioritize your skin:
Hydration is critical-Drink plenty of water to support your overall winter health and use moisturizer more than you typically do to keep your skin feeling fresh.
Use sunscreen-If you’re skiing or enjoying other winter activities be sure to continue using sunscreen on your hands and face. Reapply every few hours just like summer.
Stay warm-Avoid cracked hands and irritation elsewhere from dry skin and wet clothes. Gloves, hats, scarves, and waterproof coats are your friends.
Get the humidifiers ready-Central heating can dry our skin more than usual so consider a humidifier or a few to help distribute moisture evenly throughout your spaces at home or in the office.
Avoid drying skincare products-Be cautious when using astringents, toners, peels, or masks in your skincare routine. You want to keep your skin oils happy and opt for hydrating skincare this season rather than a drying clay mask. Also keep the temperature neutral in your showers or baths. Intense heat can strip moisture from your skin just like drying skincare products so keep it warm and just comfortable. Since Fifth & Root products put moisture first, they’re a great place to start when building your winter skin routine!
WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN A CANNABIS-BASED PRODUCT: Studies show that activating the endocannabinoid system, which can be done using CBD, can help skin look more radiant. It also has anti-inflammatory effects, which are helpful for treating acne, psoriasis, eczema, and rosacea. CBD products have risen to prominence. You can find them at any pharmacy, grocery store, and cosmetic shop, but not all of them are created equal. To find the best formulas, look for a higher CBD percentage, as well as products made with full spectrum CBD. This means that all phytochemicals are included to activate the entourage effect. In addition, stick to plant based products and ones free of harsh additives like sulfates and artificial colors and fragrances. The difference you’ll see in your skin depends on what’s inside.
