FAQ

About CBD

CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a natural active ingredient found in Cannabis sativa L (hemp). Unlike the THC molecule, another cannabinoid present in the plant, CBD has no psychotropic effects, it does not present risks of dependence or other undesirable effects.

Cannabinoids are any chemical substance, regardless of structure or origin, that binds to cannabinoid receptors and has effects similar to those produced by the plant Cannabis Sativa L.

There are 3 types of cannabinoids:

- endocannabinoids (naturally produced by the human body)

- Phytocannabinoids (produced by Cannabis sativa L) such as CBD or THC.

- Synthetic cannabinoids (cannabinoids synthesized in the laboratory)

Unlike the THC molecule, another cannabinoid found in the plant, CBD has no psychotropic effects. When isolated, CBD has many therapeutic properties, all without the risk of addiction or other adverse effects.

No, CBD does not have psychotropic effects.

No, unlike THC, CBD does not affect drug tests.

Yes, mainly, but it may depend on the country.

 Topical use of CBD is generally accepted. However, we invite you to inform yourself about the laws in force in the country where you intend to travel.

CBD has anti-inflammatory properties and has calming and soothing effects. It also contributes to the regulation of the microbiome, cell regeneration and helps plump up the skin.

Yes, it can be. But the CBD of natural origin exists so it seems better to us to buy natural CBD!

CBD is extracted from hemp, using mainly 2 methods (with CO2 or ethanol).

No, hemp seed oil does not contain CBD.

1- THC makes you high, CBD does not (no psychoactive effect).

2- CBD is not addictive, nor does it have any side effects, unlike THC.

3- THC is illegal, CBD is legal in most countries.

Yes, in very rare cases, especially if you have pre-existing allergic tendencies.

To determine if you are indeed allergic to hemp or CBD, you need to perform an allergy test, just as you would for any other allergen.

The most common, but extremely rare, experience with hemp allergies is from direct or indirect inhalation of the smoke and pollen. Allergic skin reactions can also occur when hemp leaves and flowers come into direct contact with the skin.

If you have any doubts, talk to your doctor.

There is little research on the use of CBD in cosmetic care during pregnancy. There is no conclusive evidence to show that using CBD as a topical product during pregnancy is or is not safe. We recommend that you speak with your doctor about any questions you have about using CBD during pregnancy.

CBD can be found in flowers, or used in cosmetics or food supplement formulas (for humans but also for pets).

No, you need specific know-how and equipment.

Yes, the CBD used in cosmetics is a pure CBD molecule that has been isolated.

As with many cannabinoids, the origin story of CBD begins in a laboratory. In 1940, Harvard-trained chemist Roger Adams successfully extracted CBD from cannabis. Dr. Raphael Mechoulam, known as the "godfather of cannabis research," then took over from Adams and focused on the cannabinoid. In 1963, Mechoulam described the chemical structure of CBD.

The main difference between a Full Spectrum hemp extract and a broad spectrum hemp extract is the compounds they contain.

If a hemp extract contains (almost) all of its natural components, such as terpenes and other cannabinoids, we are generally talking about a full spectrum extract.

CBD broad spectrum also contains several components of the hemp plant, but it is usually completely free of THC.

CBD isolate is the third common form of CBD. It is the pure form of CBD, which contains no other compounds from the hemp plant.

However, while these terms have some meaning, "CBD" and related terms are not heavily regulated, so some manufacturers may use the words inaccurately or misuse them (unfortunately).

Studies show that it can help with stress, insomnia, depression, muscle pain, sports recovery, it is also used in skin care for its regenerative and anti-inflammatory properties, as at I.D. SWISS BOTANICALS.

In an indoor plantation, you can control the temperature and the light. The quality is thus generally better and the rate of CBD higher. It is also easier to ensure the security of traceability of the ingredient because it is not disturbed by any external element.

I.D. SWISS BOTANICALS is a brand of Babylon Sciences Group, a global platform of hemp-based consumer brands focused on beauty, nutrition and wellness. It was co-founded by Cedric Rimella(Linkedin), a Swiss entrepreneur, who leads it as CEO (but don't worry, he's not alone as the company has nearly 30 people dedicated to this fantastic adventure!).

Skin Stress Balancer

I.D Swiss Botanicals has always been committed to offering highly effective formulas and limiting anything that would be considered superfluous. The Skin Stress Balancer is therefore a model of innovation: a highly dosed formula in a highly condensed packaging for over 160 applications! You are buying efficiency, not water. Moreover, and this is very important to us: water is a worldwide problem and is used in almost all cosmetic products. With the dry form of the Skin Stress Balancer, I.D. Swiss Botanicals takes advantage of the water in the products already in your bathroom, allowing the formula to be preservative-free. In its dry form, our Skin Stress Balancer is less dense and can be shipped worldwide using less CO2 and grey energy for the same amount of applications, compared to a liquid formula. It may not seem like a big deal, but at I.D. Swiss Botanicals, we believe that by multiplying our daily actions and efforts, together we can make real and necessary changes!

Skin Stress Balancer is the first product to contain CBD VectorS, a sophisticated delivery and targeting system. This second generation CBD delivery system is based on a state-of-the-art dual encapsulation technology developed in Switzerland and owned by I.D. Swiss Botanicals. Due to its complex penetration profile, CBD requires a certain shape to reach its skin targets. In CBD VectorS™, CBD is double encapsulated, vectored and combined with other concentrated active ingredients, making it 8 times more effective than pure CBD. Therefore, we cannot compare the concentration of CBD VectorS™ with other products containing only CBD. Thus, we decided not to fight the battle of percentage but the battle of effectiveness.

When your skin is exposed to external aggressions (chemicals, UV, pollution,..), it produces pro- and anti-inflammatory messengers to maintain a good balance and ensure homeostasis. Skin Stress Balancer modulates the skin's response to stressors, allowing for better balance. The CBDVectorS™ contained allows CBD to be better delivered and therefore also protect the skin with its antioxidant profile (superior efficacy to Vitamin E - I.D. Swiss Botanicals proprietary test).

Yes, the Skin Stress Balancer is suitable for all skin types, and even recommended for the most sensitive.

If the brain is connected to the skin, the reverse is also true. The Skin Stress Balancer has the ability, through its complex interactions with the peripheral and central nervous systems, to educate the skin to modulate its response to various external stressors, limiting exacerbated reactions (including inflamm'aging). All by itself. Isn't that ingenious?

The pro- and anti-inflammatory messengers produced by the skin chronically (i.e., repeatedly over time) create a cascade of reactions that end up altering the tissues and affecting the appearance of the skin with wrinkles, a darker complexion, etc. Accelerated aging, due to repeated inflammation (in the case of sensitive skin), is called "aging". The Skin Stress Balancer is designed to help your skin respond to these external aggressions and thus limit the consequences of inflamm'aging.

Pollution is a term that encompasses a wide variety of harmful substances created by man. When pollution (fine particles, cigarette smoke, pesticides, heavy metals, hydrocarbons...) is present in the air, it interacts with the skin and induces defense reactions that also affect its proper functioning, and ultimately ... its appearance.

Homeostasis is the dynamic process of self-regulation of the skin that guarantees a balance and an indispensable resistance to disturbances (UV, pollution, stress, etc.). It limits inflamm'aging. In other words, without it, your skin is more vulnerable.

As "serious rebels," we were inspired by the famous tequila shot ritual, the one that includes salt and lime, to add a little fun to the application process. Plus, it makes mixing easy and convenient.

The Skin Stress Balancer can be used with all water-based cosmetic skin care formulations. This means that it is compatible with your day and night creams, serums, BB & CC creams, gel creams, beauty essences, gels, elixirs, masks, hand creams, body creams, body milks, body lotions,...

No! The product was designed to be soluble and fragrance free so as not to alter your favorite product.

No, the Skin Stress Balancer is not intended to be mixed with makeup products, which are generally oil-based (except BB & CC cream which are hybrid products, containing water).

We suggest applying the Skin Stress Balancer 2-4 times a day as part of your morning to evening routine(s). Please note that if your skin requires more than one daily application, that is perfectly fine! The Skin Stress Balancer is extremely well tolerated.

The Skin Stress Balancer is a cosmetic product; it can therefore be used on other areas than the face, yes, as long as it is solubilized in a cosmetic formula. We also recommend that you use it on your hands, as they are, along with your face, the parts of your body most exposed to external aggressions such as UV rays, pollution or chemical aggressions (soap or disinfectants, for example).

We recommend 2 to 3 doses (shaking the bottle upside down) per use. This quantity is adapted to the volume usually used for a face care application. Use proportionally for larger areas.

No, the Skin Stress Balancer must be mixed with a water-based cosmetic so that it can dissolve and penetrate the skin. If the powder is not mixed, then the magic will not happen! This is also why we call our serum "collaborative".

The Skin Stress Balancer cannot be used with oil-based formulations (dry oil, facial oil, body oil, foundation, make-up, etc.). In addition, we recommend that you avoid using it with products that rinse off quickly, such as facial cleansers and makeup removers, foaming products (e.g. bath and shower), exfoliating formulas, etc. Products for which mixing is not obvious should also be avoided (mists, watery sprays, non-textured lotions, toners, etc.). Finally, the Skin Stress Balancer is NOT suitable for oral care.

1) On the top of your hand, apply a small amount of your favorite beauty product 2) Pour 2-3 doses of the Soluble Powder Serum on top 3) Gently blend with your fingertips 4) Apply to face. Use proportionally for larger areas.

Yes, but it may depend on the country of destination. Topical use of CBD is generally accepted. We invite you to find out about the laws in the country you are planning to visit.

No, the Skin Stress Balancer is for external use only.

Yes, it is! At I.D. Swiss Botanicals, we are dedicated to naturalness and wanted to create an all natural product.
