There’s a brand new skincare company in town – and they are harnessing the power of CBD for one goal: to transform your skin care routine.
Poko deliver the best in holistic skin care by combining the innovation of cannabidiol with tried-and-tested, skin-loving natural ingredients.
It’s no secret that CBD beauty is super trendy at the minute. But for us, it’s more than just a passing fad – it’s the key to making every day a ‘good skin day’.
Poko use pure, THC-free CBD extract sourced from Colorado, which is at the epicentre of hemp, CBD and cannabis research in the United States. Before it makes it on to your bathroom shelf, the CBD in our products has been rigorously tested for quality, safety and purity.
As well as their high-quality CBD extract, Poko products are formulated using the best organic ingredients like aloe vera, plant antioxidants and botanical oils to give you happy, healthy, glowing skin.
All of their products are also vegan and cruelty-free, take a look at some of the range:
Regenerating Collagen Moisturiser
Collagen is one of the skin’s most important building blocks. As we age, our skin produces less and less of it – which is why it’s vital to supplement your routine with products that stimulate collagen production.
Their Regenerating Collagen Moisturiser is formulated with powerful ingredients to stimulate collagen production and keep skin plump and supple.
Experts say that between the ages of 20 and 70, blood flow to the skin reduces by 40%. Increasing circulation is one of the best ways to combat signs of ageing, and super-charge the skin with fresh blood full of oxygen and essential nutrients.
Topical CBD acts as a vasodilator to improve blood circulation in the outermost layers of your skin.
Correcting Eye Cream
Eyes are not only the window to the soul – smiling, crying, wincing, squinting, eyes are one of the primary indicators of how we’re feeling at any given moment.
But over time, all these actions stretch delicate under eye skin. On top of that, this skin is particularly vulnerable to the elements and is often one of the first signs of stress, dehydration, poor nutrition and lack of sleep. All of these factors can contribute to premature ageing in the skin.
Using a targeted eye cream packed with antioxidants and hydrating factors is one of the best ways to combat fine lines and dark circles.
Poko‘s Correcting Eye Cream is packed with plant extracts like green tea extract, raspberry extract and fig extract. Together, these botanical extracts work to brighten dark under-eye circles and fade fine lines thanks to their high levels of antioxidants like vitamin C and vitamin E.
Hyaluronic acid keeps skin hydrated by attracting moisture out of the air, while botanical oils like avocado oil, olive oil and apricot kernel oil lock moisture into the skin. These moisturising plant oils work along with soothing CBD to reduce puffiness and keep delicate under-eye skin nourished.
Poko’s Soothing Serum is specially formulated for oily and combination skin types, to fight acne flare-ups while still being gentle to skin.
The antimicrobial properties of tea tree oil can help to fight acne-causing bacteria, while CBD works to soothe inflammation associated with break-outs. Studies show that CBD may also help to prevent against future break-outs by regulating oil production in the skin.
Vegetable glycerin helps keep the skin moisturised, which prevents the production of excess oil that leads to acne flare-ups. Concentrated aloe vera powder is an excellent source of enzymes and antioxidants for protecting the skin against environmental pollutants.
Active ingredients like CBD, tea tree oil and aloe vera powder to fight inflammation.
Luxury Facial Oil
For dry skin that needs a little extra help in the winter months, our Luxury Face Oil is the perfect last step in your routine to fight the flakes.
This cocktail of botanical oils is infused with the soothing goodness of CBD helps to help revitalise all skin types, from dry and dehydrated skin to acne-prone and ageing skin.
Baobab oil, moringa oil and crambe seed oil are packed full of skin-loving omega fatty acids to keep skin happy and hydrated.
Derived from the seeds of the Adansonia tree, baobab oil is supercharged with vitamins A, D, E and F to help rejuvenate damaged skin cells.
Baobab oil is also full of omega fatty acids to help fight free radicals and the signs of ageing. Thanks to its rich and silky finish, this oil is particularly beneficial for dry skin conditions to provide hydration without clogging pores.
Moringa oil is compromised almost 50% of monounsaturated fatty acids, with a particularly high percentage of oleic acid to help replenish moisture loss. It is also a rich source of vitamin E, which helps to reduce scarring and acne marks while keeping the skin moisturised and protected against environmental damage.
Ultra Hydrating Moisturiser
Poko’s Ultra Hydrating Moisturiser is full of natural hydrating factors to keep skin hydrated. Aloe vera leaf juice made up of 99.5% water, and is intensely hydrating to quench dry and dehydrated skin.
Botanical oils like apricot kernel oil, olive oil and sunflower seed oil lock in moisture. Apricot kernel oil is also high in omega-3, omega-6 and omega-9 fatty acids which help heal and maintain the skin’s acid mantle.
Your skin’s acid mantle (also known as your moisture barrier) is like your very own o-zone layer, which protects the skin from environmental damage.
Keeping your skin’s acid mantle in check is one of the most important factors of your skin care routine.
Their Ultra Hydrating Moisturiser contains both olive oil and apricot kernel oil which mimic the skin’s natural oils. These oils keep your skin balanced and hydrated without clogging pores and causing congestion in the skin. Olive oil also contains phenolic compounds, which work as effective antioxidants to heal the skin from environmental damage.
The soothing properties of CBD also make this cream suitable for sensitive skin types that have a tendency to react negatively to certain products.
