Making the switch to Natural Organic Skincare

Transitioning to natural skincare can be a little daunting, not to mention utterly confusing. The latest must-have ingredients come and go, but natural skincare trends tend to have staying power. So where should you start?

Finding the right natural product to make the switch from mainstream brands can be overwhelming – so let me help you. I’ve spent years diligently researching natural ingredients and formulating high potency products that naturally nourish the skin. If you’re curious about making the switch, these questions and answers may convince you.

What to know about making the switch to toxic-free skin care products?

It’s the best move you can make towards not only looking after your skin but also taking care of your short and long term health.

The skin is the largest organ of the body by surface area and absorption is one of its functions.  Synthetic chemicals in most skincare ranges are absorbed into the body where they can have serious and detrimental effects on short and long term health.

An average woman applies more than 500 chemicals to her body every day during her beauty routine! This over exposure to chemicals has been linked to serious issues such as toxicity of the nervous system, cancer, birth defects and more.

The point is, that what we put on our skin (and our children’s) is under our control.  Women can take charge of their health by switching to genuine toxic-free skincare and experience not only improved skin (natural products particularly containing essential oils have powerful anti-ageing properties) but better health and a more positive, healthy life.

If you had to choose only one product to use every day to treat your face, which one would it be and why?  

That’s an easy question.

Our flagship product and the moisturiser that I have used daily for the past 14 years is the JOI Pure Rejuvenating Facial Cream. It contains carefully selected and truly nourishing organic oils and butters as well as regenerative pure essential oils and plant extracts.  It is restorative, replenishing, hydrating and rejuvenating, plus it smells divine.   I look forward to using it every morning, even after all these years. Anyone who tries the Rejuvenating Facial Cream will not use anything else…it is that beautiful and effective.

How do I treat dry skin without using strong and harsh moisturisers?

The JOI Pure Intensive Hydration Nutritive Mask is my other “must – have” product. It is a simply beautiful nourishing cream mask that delivers an enriching therapeutic treatment when your skin is feeling dry or devitalized. It is rich in organic shea butter, jojoba oil, carrot oil and rosehip oil, with chamomile and rosewood essential oils.  It instantly replenishes and restores the skin and smells amazing. Fantastic for sunburn and eczema, simply massage in, leave to set and wash off!

What product would you use to ‘rescue’ your skin on any given day, and why?

Well I can’t live without my JOI Pure Rejuvenating Facial Cream for during the day and The AAA Night Serum at night.  These both rescue my skin from daily exposure to life!   The AAA Night Serum is one of our best-selling products and is formulated from the finest organic skin compatible plant oils, infused vitamins, actives and pure essential oils to nourish, moisturise and rejuvenate the skin.  Both products (and my Recovery Eye Serum) rescue my skin every day.

There is a certain element of ritual involved when treating the skin, why is it more beneficial to treat the skin with natural ingredients?

Most skincare on the market is designed to “feel good” (silicone, petrochemicals etc.), “smell good” (synthetic fragrance) and last a long time (strong synthetic preservatives). They all contain a host of synthetic chemicals that don’t actually do a lot for the skin but provide a temporary “nice feel”.

High-quality natural skincare, particularly aromatherapy – based skincare (utilising the power of therapeutic grade pure essential oils), supports the function of the skin to stay nourished, hydrated and to regenerate. Plant oils are rich in phytonutrients and antioxidants that all work to prevent cell damage (anti-ageing).

Essential oils are cytophlatic meaning they stimulate cell repair and regeneration, which slows down with age. Essential oils have a small molecular size, so they penetrate through the skin to work at the cellular and vascular level to improve the health of the skin. Skin becomes more radiant and healthy.

The JOI Pure products are so beautiful to use that a simple daily ritual is enjoyable and pleasant and adhering to a skincare routine becomes so easy. It is a part of your day that you enjoy.

I hope these questions have helped you in choosing natural and organic products, over synthetic and “popular” products. At JOI Pure we’re committed to providing truly natural and organic aromatherapy based skincare that works in harmony with your body.
