Even with oily or acne-prone skin its important to moisturize, especially since the right formula can mattify, brighten, and clear your skin. We have created what we believe is the UK's best moisturizers for oily skin, including lightweight gels, mattifying creams, and hydrating SPFs.
Infused with CBD our active ingredients help reduce acne and with a combination of essential oils and natural ingredients we can help you white-label your unique acne CBD cream.
Acne medications go on first, topped with a CBD medical moisturizer or serum, then sunscreen if the weather demands and makeup for those that choose to wear it. Our full range of cleansers, toners, and creams can help create a full acne range.
However, if you use a retinoid-based product to control acne (like tretinoin or adapalene), apply these over a moisturizer or mixed with one to lessen irritation.
Use on the affected areas and follow instructions, always consult your doctor before trying any medication.
If you’re on the drier side/combination skin and have acne, opt for a moisturizing cream. Those with oily skin should go for a lightweight lotion or gel, moisturizers for acne-prone skin tend to be fragrance-free and contain chemical-free, non-irritating sunscreens.
These moisturizers will work wonders on acne-prone skin.
Active ingredients and CBD certs can be found by contacting our sales team.

Frequently asked questions
Acne often occurs when excess oil, dirt, and dead skin cells clog pores, a bacteria Propionibacterium acnes can build up in the pores, causing the breakouts.
Acne treatment involves keeping the skin clean, free from acne-causing bacteria, and cutting back on excess oil that can clog the skin.
Cannmed serums and creams have been formulated to help improve the skin and reduce the effects of problem skin, with CBD added we hope to further improve our acne serum and cream ranges.
Most of the research surrounding acne and CBD is still ongoing but researchers have measured the effects of CBD on skin and oil-producing glands in a laboratory.
The researchers found that CBD inhibited oil production and also had anti-inflammatory effects on oil-producing glands. They concluded CBD was a “promising therapeutic agent” for acne treatment.
A study published* found promising results for those who have psoriasis. The study found that cannabinoid receptors in the skin have the power to reduce excess skin cell growth, a common problem in those with psoriasis.
The researchers theorized that cannabinoids could have the potential to “shut off” the receptors that caused excess skin cell buildup in people with psoriasis. Further research will be needed before conclusions can be fully drawn but Cannmed believe the outlook is positive.
