I am a health nut.... you know, one of those people that, if I must buy something that lives in a pre- packed box, I have to read the label and check every single ingredient. More often than not it gets placed back on the shelf as it is full of scary numbers, chemical looking names and colours. Not the pretty colours you see in the sun filled sky, but the ones that have 3 digit numbers after them. Yeeek !
This is how I came to create my lovely little company, "Gypsy Juice" (and boy, do I love this beautiful little company of mine).
It is an unfortunate fact that the majority of skincare products available to us today, are filled with unwanted petrochemicals, solvents, dyes, alcohol, preservatives, pesticides, synthetic chemicals and low cost fillers such as water. Many of these can be harmful to us as well as our lovely animal friends (due to cruel and unnecessary animal testing).
Our skin is our largest organ, and it makes me really sad that all these yucky chemicals are being spread all over peoples faces and bodies. Surely it can't be the making of a happy, vibrant, youthful and well balanced complexion! So I created an organic skincare range that would be the yummiest, most nutritious, delicious and organic, raw meal for your skin. Gypsy Juice was created to provide your skin with all the minerals, nutrients, fatty-acids and anti-oxidants for optimal skin health.
Nomadic passions have led me on an unbelievable journey for the past 14 years, and have given me the opportunity to incorporate some of the world's finest, most pure ingredients into my range. They are sourced from some of the most exotic, lush and remote places on earth. My blends only ever contain exquisite, 100% certified organic, cold pressed and unrefined ingredients.
Sadly, refined oils are commonly used in the cosmetic industry. Often, with the high level of heat used in the refinement process, many of the beneficial nutrients are lost. (sad face) The refinement process greatly increases the yield of oil, making the cost of the oil much lower. Although this may be best for those company's wallets, it is definitely not best for your skin!
Everyone on the planet is beautiful for different reasons and each person's skin differs from one to the next. Accordingly, each Gypsy Juice blend is specially formulated and made fresh to order for each client, based on skin type and skin needs.
Each of my five products are hand made by me, here in beautiful Mallorca, Spain (where I currently live). They are housed in simple, amber, glass bottles to protect the integrity of the essential oils I have chosen to use. They come to you in lovely muslin cotton bags which I hand stamp with my Gypsy Juice logo.
I really hope you enjoyed reading a little about my products. You can visit my website at www.gypsyjuice.me. It has lots of wonderful information about the benefits of using my 100 % organic products.
