CBD is without doubt one of the hottest ingredients in the skin care category right now, with consumer curiosity triggering the launch of numerous independent skin care brands that promote the benefits of the hemp plant-derived ingredient.

This webinar will showcase some of the leading talents and expertise in the hemp skin care field, with the panel discussing a wide range of topics, from formulating with CBD oil, to the best approach to marketing this kind of product, as well as focusing on the sometimes tricky regulatory area.
