“Color Up’s master formulator, head scientist and cofounder, Will Parker, has been studying the effects of adding individual, isolated cannabinoids from the cannabis plant into our botanical formulations. Just like CBD, there are other phytocannabinioids such as CBG, CBC, THCV and CBN that are equally as important to our body and skin’s daily function. We’re just now starting to break the surface with research and development, but the results have been promising.”—Shauna Blanch, LMT, LE, cofounder and COO of Color Up
