TEGO® CBD Revitalize 

Give yourself star-power with a scientifically-crafted CBD entourage

Star-power doesn’t happen alone, but rather through an entourage of followers. Similarly, CBD’s magical skin care powers derive not only from the cannabidol, but rather from complementary and synergistic compounds found within the CBD extract itself – its own entourage effect.

It is no secret that US consumers are excited about CBD products, but safety and regulatory concerns surrounding some of the ancillary components of CBD extracts are raising eyebrows. For brands trying to support consumers’ CBD aspirations, deliver tangible skin appearance benefits, and address these regulatory concerns, there is an alternative: scientifically-tailored entourage effects. Evonik’s forthcoming TEGO® CBD Revitalize is an excellent example, enabling CBD consumers to enjoy skin revitalization benefits without regret.

Key Benefits:

  • Promotes a refreshed and youthful skin appearance
  • Supports skin hydration
  • Strengthens the skin’s protective layers
  • Emotional benefits by feeling in harmony with signs of ageing
  • A natural, plant-based, scientifically-crafted ingredient
  • Based on high purity CBD, absent of unwanted constituents
