When you hear the word cannabis, what do you think of? A narcotic with a bad reputation? Well, Slovenian skincare brand MGC Derma is out to challenge your perception of the controversial plant.

After proving popular in Eastern Europe, the brand has just this week launched into the UK - with a very interesting product. The CBD Moisturizing Day Cream, £58 (now £46.27), is unique in the fact that it contains an ingredient called cannabidiol (CBD).

While it isn't the only one in shops that uses it (The Body Shop have had CBD in their hemp range for years), the brand definitely isn't shy about bigging up the controversial ingredient.

Thanks to its supercharged anti-inflammatory properties, derivatives of cannabis have become the 'it' ingredients to use in creams - and experts are predicting they'll be edging more and more into the mass market in coming months, as the stigmas attached to the plant get outweighed by the skincare benefits.

And while it's not being suggested that you smoke it, there's actually a lot of benefits to slapping the green stuff on your skin. Because it helps reduce inflammation, sufferers from conditions like eczema, acne and psoriasis have reported good results from using creams with CBD in it.

So what actually is it? CBD is extracted from hemp (a cannabis plant), and has been scientifically proven to promote skin healing and repair - hence why inflammatory conditions like eczema might find relief from using it. It also has high levels of antioxidants and omega fatty acids - to combat things like fine lines, wrinkles and dry skin.

Acne sufferers may also benefit from using the range as the ingredients work to reduce breakouts by normalizing hydration levels, and regenerate the outer layers of skin.
