You do yoga. You sip green juice. You buy organic produce. And you’re curious about using greener, cleaner skincare—but aren’t quite sure where to start. You’ve come to the right place.
Green skincare typically refers to formulas that are packed with botanical-based ingredients, while steering clear of potentially-toxic synthetics such as parabens, formaldehydes and artificial fragrances. Green products are also commonly thought to be safe products for skin because they contain fewer chemicals, though that isn’t always true. Some botanicals (hello, poison ivy) can, of course, be irritating. While many products out there aren’t as safe, or as green, as they claim to be, Perricone MD has done the research to develop high-performing skincare for even the most sensitive skin that’s safe, non-irritating and delivers unparalleled results.
What are the benefits of CBD in skincare? A green routine you can trust
Perricone MD’s Hypoallergenic CBD Sensitive Skin Therapy Collection contains six products that have all the positive green-beauty attributes outlined above (yes to botanicals, no to harmful chemicals)—and they are safe for even the most sensitive skin. The collection is also a comprehensive regimen, which makes going green fool-proof.
“We wanted to ensure we could check off every box when it came to products that are both green and good for sensitive skin,” says Rosalba Martone, Perricone MD’s Director of Education. “Aside from being hypoallergenic, the products are also non-comedogenic and free of the 26 known allergens as well as parabens, fragrance, gluten, sulfates, silicones, formaldehyde, butylene- and propylene-glycol, PEG, phthalates, BHA and BHT.”
Don’t mistake soothing for ineffective, though, as the range provides amazing skincare benefits that you get from all Perricone MD products. Our latest additions to our greenest collection are of no exception. In fact, the Hypoallergenic CBD Sensitive Skin Therapy Ultra-Smooth Clean Shave Cream and Ultra-Lightweight Calming SPF 35 Veil, are just as gently powerful, to fully round out your clean routine.
And what about the CBD? It’s sensitive-skin safe, too. “We utilize 99% pure Cannabidiol, which is also known as CBD isolate. This means that our products only contain the phytocannabinoid CBD, and zero traces of any other phytocannabinoids, including THC. CBD isolate has been proven to be the most effective phytocannabinoid when it comes to calming and soothing skin,” explains Martone.

This is your new clean skincare routine: stock up on this CBD-infused, non-toxic skincare collection for sensitive skin, then use them in this sequence:
Hypoallergenic CBD Sensitive Skin Therapy Gentle Cleanser
Benefits: Combats sensitivity and dryness, while gently removing dirt and oil buildup.
What to Expect: This gentle, low-foaming wash removes impurities without stripping the skin of essential moisture. The result: skin feels refreshed and moisturized.
Key Ingredients: Glycerin, a natural humectant found in plants, helps smooth and hydrate skin by strengthening its moisture barrier. Cannabis sativa seed oil, an omega-rich extract expressed from hemp seed, helps hydrate and soften skin texture by intensely nourishing skin’s barrier and protecting against environmental damage.
Results: In a consumer study of 102 women after 28 days, 97% found the cleanser non-irritating, 95% felt it was suitable for sensitive skin and 94% agreed it left skin feeling soft.
How to Use: Dampen hands and lather a small amount in your palms, then gently massage into skin. Rinse thoroughly with warm water. Use morning and evening.
Hypoallergenic CBD Sensitive Skin Therapy Ultra-Smooth Clean Shave Cream
Benefits: Soothes and nourishes skin for a clean shave that leaves skin soft, without irritation.
What to Expect: This ultra-rich texture creates a slick surface and easy glide, for a close and comfortable shave. Leaves even the most sensitive skin feeling ultra-soft and smooth every time.
Key Ingredients: Cannabis sativa seed oil, an omega-rich extract expressed from hemp seed, helps hydrate and soften skin texture by intensely nourishing skin’s barrier and protecting against environmental damage without clogging. Allantoin, found in almost all living things, soothes, softens and conditions the skin by helping lock in moisture.
Results: In a consumer study of 196 men and women after 1 day, 98% agreed the shave cream is non-irritating and 95% agreed it nourishes skin during and post-shave, while preventing razor burn.
How to Use: Massage a thin, even layer onto clean, damp skin. Shave as usual & rinse thoroughly. Keep out of eyes.
Hypoallergenic CBD Sensitive Skin Therapy Rebalancing Elixir
Benefits: Hydrates, boosts radiance and rebalances the skin’s optimal pH level to help soothe.
What to Expect: This elixir hydrates and calms instantly, as well as smooths texture and evens skin tone over time. The result: balanced, healthy, radiant skin.
Key Ingredients: An antioxidant mushroom complex, derived from Lingzhi, Shiitake and Maitake mushrooms, soothes and protects the skin, fights free radical damage and promotes a balanced pH; and cherimoya fruit extract, rich in antioxidants including vitamin C, fights free radicals and soothes sensitive skin.
Results: In a consumer study of 105 people after 28 days, 95% agreed the elixir absorbed quickly and refreshed the skin and 94% felt it was suitable for sensitive skin, leaving it feeling soft and smooth.
How to Use: After cleansing, shake the bottle twice into your hand. Then press palms together to distribute the elixir and pat your hands over the face and neck. Allow the elixir to fully absorb before applying moisturizer. Use morning and evening.
Hypoallergenic CBD Sensitive Skin Therapy Nourishing & Calming Moisturizer
Benefits: Calms, softens, smooths and helps reduce the appearance of redness
What to Expect: Lightweight and nourishing, this calming cream moisturizes and soothes even the most sensitive skin.
Key Ingredients: Licorice root extract reduces flaking, soothes and visibly improves the appearance of dry, damaged skin. Buriti oil utilizes its high concentration of essential fatty acids and vitamin A to improve the feel of skin elasticity, as well as vitamin E to protect against environmental stressors. It’s also worth noting that the oil in this formula is non-comedogenic and safe for all skin types. “People with sensitive skin tend to avoid products with oil because they fear it will either cause a reaction or cause them to break out. But, when we strip our skin of essential oil, it throws our natural lipid barrier out of balance and this can result in increased sensitivity,” explains Martone. “So, it’s extremely important that we keep this lipid barrier looking strengthened and healthy. The stronger and healthier the barrier, the less sensitive the skin is.”
Results: In a consumer study of 102 people after 28 days, 100% agreed the moisturizer was gentle, while 99% agreed their skin was left feeling soft, smooth and nourished.
How to Use: Massage onto face and neck using a gentle upward motion. Use morning and evening.

Benefits: Hydrates and soothes the sensitive, fragile skin around the eyes.
What to Expect: Intensely soothing, this nourishing eye cream provides essential hydration to the delicate eye area.
