Four Tips for Starting Your Own CBD Skincare Brand

In both the US and the UK, customers are looking for more organic based products for their skin, and CBD can provide this, as well as many other benefits. Following these four tips can get you started with your very own CBD skincare brand.

Taking Payments

Before you begin with anything, you need to ensure that you have found a payment method. Many big banks and payment processors will not allow payments for CBD products yet, but hopefully, with CBD breaking the market, this is going to change. There is no use setting up your business only to find out that you cannot take payments, or even worse, have your business closed or your funds frozen. Cashless ATMs may be best if you are choosing to open up your own store. Do your research – there are plenty of helpful articles online about finding a credit card processor for CBD products.

Finding a Niche

The cosmetics industry in general is huge, and so is skincare. Skincare can relate to many items such as oils, moisturizers, soaps and lip balms. While CBD skincare is a niche in itself, you still need to choose what products you want to sell. It may be that you want to do a whole skincare range. The best research you can do is on competitor websites, looking at what sells best and what prices these products are currently selling at. The best niche is one that is both in demand as well as low in competition.

Getting a Trustworthy Supplier

When finding a CBD supplier, you need to find a supplier that you can trust and who will provide you with high-quality products at low prices. Companies like Cope CBD also allow businesses to purchase bulk CBD seeds, keeping costs down further. Once you have found a supplier who can provide you with CBD seeds, you can begin to think about how to make the rest of your product and what other ingredients you wish to use. Again, this is about looking at what is selling best on the market, Grazia have a list of the best ingredients to use on your skin and so any of these could be used in your skincare product.

Building Your Brand

Next you need to make a brand that stands out. This includes a logo, website and packaging. If you don’t have a clue where to start with all of this, hiring a graphic designer can help put your ideas into reality. You also need a few USP’s (unique selling point) one of which can be the use of CBD oil. Ensure that your brand is consistent throughout and it is easy for the customer to understand what you are selling.

CBD skincare is the next big thing and with CBD being used for everything from edibles to oils, it is no wonder that people are jumping on this new money-making idea. Make sure you also check out any legal obligations for your state before starting your CBD skincare brand.
