The experts at Karibo are focused on the beauty that is enhanced through the use of CBD products. All of their affordable CBD-infused skincare products have been specially formulated for the face and body. Their motto is ‘skincare for every day’. They want each one of their products to become a valued addition to your daily beauty routine.
Karibo is owned and operated by MMG Consumer Brands. They sell Karibo CBD infused skincare brands to consumers and retailers throughout the United States at a higher price than the market average of $0.15 per milligram. Currently, they sell only five skincare products but they hope to grow the brand’s selection significantly in the near future, according to a customer service representative that I talked too when I chatted with the company on their website.
All of their products feature a 30 day money back guarantee. They also offer free shipping if you purchase more than $30 of product. At this time, they do not ship outside the USA.
Products undergo third party testing and the certificates of analysis are posted online. You can also scan the product using your smartphone to be directed to the lab results online.
The products sold by Karibo are made from broad spectrum CBD so they contain absolutely no THC. They are, however, brimming with all of the other cannabinoids and terpenes found in hemp.
Karibo relies on Colorado retailers for all of their hemp. They obtain it from several distributors. CO2 extraction, the gold standard of all extraction processes, is used to pull the cannabinoids from the hemp plants and ensure no solvent residue remains in the final product.
As mentioned, Karibo is owned by MMG Consumer Brands. They are dedicated only to topicals and offer no other forms of CBD. However, they do plan on expanding their topical section to include more choices in the near future. Shana King’s journeys and professional views have had a great bearing on the creation of Karibo. She worked as a beauty insider for over two decades and focused on the development and sale of beauty products. Her goal was always to create a top shelf skincare brand that would be an asset to women around the world. She wanted it to improve the skin’s appearance dramatically. With the Karibo brand, she is confident that her goals have been achieved.
The brand’s products contain only broad spectrum CBD that is 100 percent free of THC. The purpose of each product is to restore the harmony and balance of the skin. In addition, all of the skincare products contain Rosmarinus officinalis flower extract which is known to protect the skin from free radical and sun damage. They also have glycyrrhiza uralensis root extract (black licorice) which is believed to hydrate the skin and smooth wrinkles
The labels on Karibo’s skincare products are laid out very nicely. They list the ingredients and provide information on the product and instructions for use. CBD content is clearly listed so you don’t have to wonder how much each product contains
They enlist the assistance of third party laboratory testing to check for solvent residue, the presence of e. coli or yeast, and any residual organics. The overall cleanliness of the products is acceptable.
The website of Karibo is laid out nicely and easy to use. You can quickly find product information plus FAQs and information about the company.
Karibu obtains all of their hemp from growers in Colorado. They then use CO2 extraction to pull the cannabinoids from the hemp plant. CO2 extraction is eco-friendly and organic solvent free. All THC is removed from the product but the hemp plant’s cannabinoids and terpenes remain in the product.
They put all products through third party laboratory testing. You can access the Certificate of Analysis (COA) on Karibo’s website or via the QR code that is printed on the product’s label.
In order to obtain the lab reports for your product, visit Karibo’s website. Go to the lab reports section of the website. Enter the batch number to look up your product’s specific reports. Karibo uses Infinite Chemical Analysis Labs to perform all of their third party laboratory testing.
They offer email or online chat if you have questions about Karibo’s products. I used the online chat feature to speak with one of Karibo’s representatives. Below, you’ll find images of the chat log. I wanted to know the source of their hemp and if it was certified by the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) as truly organic. I was informed that their hemp does not have that certificate.
Karibo Beauty products are free of GMOs, parabens, sulfates, artificial colors and dyes, phthalates, titanium dioxide, preservatives, formaldehyde releasing agents and animal products.

We compared the lab results of two products: the Karibo CBD Infused Hand & Body Lotion and the Karibo CBD Infused Face Mask
When you scan the QR on the Karibo products it takes you to this page:
You can then enter the batch numbers. Unfortunately, the batch numbers of the two products that I entered did not come up. It said, “no results found”. I then decided to email Karibo to ask for the COA numbers. I waited 72 hours and they never replied.

They offer a 30 day money-back guarantee which is a bonus if you end up not liking the product.
I used the live chat feature to chat with a customer service representative. The rep was very helpful but did take a long time to offer answers. I asked a few questions about their products, lab testing, hemp sources, and if they would be expanding their product offerings but it took over an hour to complete the chat because of the delays in the answers to my questions. The length of time was frustrating.
