Importance of Our Ingredients
At Jo Browne all recipes are a combination of carefully selected ingredients, organic when economically possible and always natural. The skin is our largest organ. It absorbs into the body much of what it comes in contact with. When choosing ingredients that we use in our products, we believe it must be good enough to eat and be beneficial for the skin.
The following ingredients are NEVER found in our products:
– SLS (sodium laurel sulfate)
– Artifical colours
– GMO ingredients
All of my products are blended by hand and poured individually for superior freshness and quality control then hand poured into eco-friendly packaging.
The cosmetics industry loves beeswax because not only is it natural and non-toxic, it provides benefits to the skin and to various types of formulas. Itâ€™s a â€œthickening agent,â€ for instance, which means that it can help thicken creams to make them easier to use and more spreadable on the skin.
Mango butter is highly effective as far as caring for the skin is concerned. It is highly nourishing for the skin and hydrates it really well. Mango butter is even used for consumption in certain cases.
Vitamin E known is well known for promoting healthy and clear skin. This natural oil is one of the main ingredients in all our products as it fights free radicals from the environment such as pollution and sun damage, can smooth and heal the skin from cracks and dryness. It reduces the appearance of age spots and helps to repair skin tissue.
This property of jojoba also makes it much more potent and convenient for use in skin care. It absorbs easily into the skin, and delivers instant hydration and moisturisation. Itâ€™s easy to mix in with other ingredients because it has no scent, and because itâ€™s so light.
Rice Bran Oil
The main benefit of rice bran oil to the skin is its wonderful deep-moisturising capability. This is due to its combination of vitamin E and fatty acids, which go deep into skin to improve its ability to hold onto hydration.Â Rice bran oil also contains â€œsqualane,â€ which is a natural organic compoundÂ which helps the skin naturally regenerate itself, leading to younger, fresher looking skin.
