Did you know 60% of what is applied on the skin is absorbed by your body? Unfortunately, many of the beauty products we apply are packed with harmful chemicals that end up harming your skin. The good news is that there is an alternative.
Organic and natural beauty products are becoming increasingly popular. In this profile, we look at one of the leading makers of organic beauty solutions, Juice Beauty.
About Juice Beauty
Started officially in 2005, Juice Beauty was the culmination of Karen Behnke’s personal journey. After her first pregnancy, she learned that the beauty product industry had very little natural options. Determined to change this she embarked on founding Juicy Beauty skincare, make-up and hair products.
Working with the best doctors, microbiologists, and chemists, the California based wellness entrepreneur came up with a solution that eliminated petroleum and water as a base and instead worked with natural anti-oxidants. The results were much better than conventional beauty products.
Juice Beauty is now an award-winning beauty product company. All their products are made with USDA-certified organic ingredients. Their products are also vegan and eco-friendly.
Right from the start, their mission has always been to provide products that nourish the skin and protect the earth.
Why we love them
Our skin is pretty porous taking in so much from what we apply on it. Conventional beauty products contain a lot of potentially harmful additives that end up overworking the skin. The result is damaged, rapidly aging and dull skin.
But that’s not all. Some of the products like lead and mercury and practices like animal testing end up harming our environment. Part of the reason we love Juice Beauty is how they go to great measures to ensure their products are safe for the skin (and body) and the environment.
Their ingredients are carefully selected from specific local, USDA certified farmers. The farmers use little to no toxic fertilizers that could end up in the final products. The process to nurture and protect your skin starts right from the farm.
From the farm, Juice Beauty does its production through solar energy and the packaging is nature-friendly as well.
The final product you buy is high quality and uncompromised by any dangerous ingredients. Harnessed from nature’s best products such as aloe, shear, grape seed, jojoba and citric juice, each product is formulated to immediately start working with your skin to make it look younger, more beautiful and healthier.
Their products include skin care cosmetics and makeup, all of them organic. They have products for every kind of need and situation. Whether you need sun protection, something to even your complexion or a cream to beat away acne, they have it all.
Some of their best-selling skin care products include;
- Stem cellular anti-wrinkling cream.- Contains grapefruits, fruit stem, and vitamin C. It reduces the appearance of wrinkles and leaves your skin looking young and revitalized
- Green apple brightening skincare – This is a range of skin brightening products with ingredients like malic acid from green apples, CoQ10, peptides, and alpha lipoic acid. It works to correct uneven skin tone, discoloration and reducing the appearance of dark spots.
- Blemish clearing oil control – Clears your skin while also hydrating it. It contains CoQ10, willow back, Salicylic acid, vitamin and organic fruit acid.
- Daily essential oils – For a daily skin nourishing routine, the oils are packed with jojoba, ylang-ylang, grape seed and aloe. They work with your skin to leave it feeling nourished, supple and clear.
As for their makeup category, the crown is the Phyto-Pigments makeup collection. It uses plant-based ingredients to provide vibrant colors that make your skin glow. They also add cold-pressed organic oils to keep your skin soft and supple.
Also in the makeup category look for their classics like the reflective lip gloss and lip moisturizers.
It is encouraging to see more companies pouring resources into making sustainable and healthy beauty solutions. Juice Beauty has led the organic beauty industry to new frontiers. By using valid science and years of experience, they have created a range of products that finally give women (and everyone else too) quality alternatives to synthetic products.
Juice Beauty has partnered with Gwyneth Paltrow, the founder of famed Goop, to create an even wider range of organic cosmetics.
Their aim is not just to provide organic beauty solutions but create products that bring out the inner beauty in every user.
