MGC Derma Brightening Night Cream
MGC Derma's high-end skincare products can be found in Harvey Nichols of Knightsbridge as well as many other luxury highstreet stores. This brand is one of (if not) the first brands on the highstreet to include CBD in their range of products. This goes to show that the science is starting to speak for itself. This luxury nightcream will set you back a pretty penny but can one really put a price on healthy, vibrant skin?
About MGC Derma
MGC Derma was created by an Australian medical cannabis pharmaceutical company called MGC Pharma. They teamed up with an Israeli cosmetics company who create cosmetics for the likes of Estee Lauder and Elizabeth Arden. Seems like a match made in heaven if you ask me. You’ll find way more information about MGC Derma and what makes them special on our MGC Derma Brand Page.
The brand claims to have conducted a 4 week trial with a sample rate of 90 people. What were the findings? Skin conditions such as eczema and acne were reduced by supposedly 70%. We will try and get our hands on the trial so we can share it with you.

What about the CBD?
It’s not clear just how much CBD is used in this product however we were able to find out that MGC Derma source their CBD from the Czech Republic in Eastern Europe.
“We had to create a water-soluble CBD that would absorb perfectly into the skin.” – Roby Zomer, Co-Founder & Managing Director of MGC Pharmaceuticals.
According to MGC Derma, it took over two years to develop an appropriate method of combining CBD with their creams.
As far as CBD Creams go, this one is well-thought out and part of a large range of wholesome ingredients dedicated to treating the skin the way it wants to be treated.
