When choosing what goes into JoEve products, I carefully select ingredients that have known health benefits for both the body and the mind. There is no animal testing carried out and the ingredients are sourced from natural botanicals. All Scents are natural scents derived from various Essential Oils which in particular helps prevent my sensitive skin from flaring up. I wanted to create products that not only smell great but didn't cause outbreaks, rashes and itching that I experienced using chemical shop products. The main ingredient I found that was causing problems for my skin was called 'Parfum' or 'Fragrance', these are an undisclosed mixture of chemical ingredients used for fragrancing products, when I say undisclosed I mean they can be from a wide variety of chemicals and labelling them this covers up what they really are with one word which means you will not be able to distinguish what chemical you get a reaction to if you do get a reaction. This ingredient had a major negative effect on my psoriasis and since I've stopped using products containing these and using my own handmade products I have seen a massive difference in my skin. So if you are experiencing any reactions to your body products please have a look at the ingredients and check if 'Parfum' or 'Fragrance' is on there and that’s sure to be your culprit which is why when making my own products at least I know exactly what’s going in there (no chemicals). Here are some of the key 'Natural' Ingredients I choose to go into my products and some of their benefits.
