European Commission adds CBG as legal ingredient for cosmetics, skin care

European health and beauty product manufacturers can now safely use hemp-derived cannabigerol or CBG in their cosmetics and skin care lines with approval from a key market regulator for trade in the European Union.

The European Commission added CBG last month as a safe ingredient for skin conditioning to Cosing, its cosmetics ingredient database.

Hemp extractors and manufacturers tout the benefits of using hemp-derived CBG in skin care and cosmetics products, including anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antioxidant properties.

The classification change was made by the EU’s Directorate-General for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs (small- and medium-sized enterprises).

The EU added hemp-derived CBD to the Cosing database in February, and synthetic CBD and hemp leaves are also among the approved ingredients for cosmetics.
