Plant Power

For naturally beautiful healthy skin, we rely on plant power. Why not lean on the power of mother nature to deliver healthy radiant naturally glowing skin from head-to-toe. At Jacq’s Organics, we only use pure plant oils derived from flowers, nuts, seeds, fruits and vegetables (the good oils) that are rich in fatty acids, vitamins, and much more. One of the many ingredients you will NOT find in our products is mineral oil.  Mineral oil is a by-product of crude oil that coats the skin, clogs pores and prevents your skin from doing its job of naturally releasing toxins and impurities. Plant based ingredients tighten, brighten and help maintain skin texture and skin elasticity resulting in younger looking skin.

Mineral oil does lock in moisture, but also locks in bacteria and toxins. Primarily used in baby bath products as baby oil, mineral oils should be avoided. Baby bath and body oil is intended to gently moisturize and prevent dry skin.  As an alternative to mineral oil, use products that contain plant based ingredients. For example, sweet almond oil is odorless, light and gentle enough for a baby’s delicate skin. This oil contains a high amount of oleic acid making it moisturizing, skin softening and it has skin regenerative properties.  It’s also known to aid skin inflammation, eczema and even bacterial rashes. If your little one has cradle cap or seborrheic dermatitis, gently rub onto scalp.

 Mineral oil and petroleum belongs in cars, not on your skin or in your hair.  As the largest organ of your body, your skin naturally releases toxins and bacteria. With an oil that coats your skin, like mineral oil, this blocks your skin from naturally releasing the toxins which can lead to bacteria buildup, acne, pre-mature aging and skin disorders. 

According to Dr. Wong, a naturopathic doctor and nutrition specialist, sweet almond oil is one of the most popular massage oils used by massage therapists. Use bath and body oils (all our products are plant derived) that contain plant based ingredients that are healthy alternatives to harsh ingredients such as mineral oil or petroleum. When selecting a moisturizer, opt for moisturizers that contain grapeseed oil, coconut oil, Shea butter or mango butter. When using a moisturizer (our moisturizers contain grapeseed oil, coconut oil and  almond oil) remember to apply to damp skin as it will absorb more easily.
