VICTORIA, BC--(Marketwired - November 25, 2016) - Jusu Body, a subsidiary of the popular Victoria-based Jusu Bars, launched a new line of all natural skincare products today that harnesses nature's powerful nutrition as nourishment for the skin.
The initial product offering includes body lotion, body scrub, lip balm and soap bars made from organic, 100 percent food grade, cruelty-free, plant-based, all-natural, gluten-free and GMO-free materials that are fragranced with therapeutic-grade essential oils. Additional product offerings, which will utilize the same natural and organic values, are under development and will be available soon.
Jusu Body President, Sarah Bowder, says the skincare line is a natural fit for the growing number of people who are actively paying attention to what they put into as well as onto their body.
"It is believed that about 60 percent of the chemicals used in skincare products end up in the blood stream in less than 30 seconds. We are offering customers a product that ensures that what they are putting on their skin is chemical free," said Sarah Bowder. "We believe that Jusu Body provides a super-healthy, natural alternative to the chemical-laden personal skincare products people use daily."
The Jusu Body skincare line uses Jusu's own organic pulp as a featured ingredient. The products contain no synthetic chemicals or biologically active ingredients purporting to have medical or drug-like benefits often referred to as cosmeceuticals. Instead they contain handmade, organic and natural food grade substances. Products will be available in four scents; Ginger Citrus, Eucalyptus Mint, Vanilla Peppermint and a Scent-Free variety.
"Fresh, cold-pressed juices are rich in vital minerals and enzymes as well as antioxidants and anti-inflamatories providing many healing properties in the Body products," Bruce Mullen, President and CEO of Jusu Bars, said. "The repurposing of the juice pulp is not only innovative it represents a zero-waste, win-win solution for both the company and our customers."
Initially Jusu Body products will be available at the Cadboro Bay, Fisgard Street and Oak Bay Jusu Bar locations in Victoria and online at http://www.jusubody.com. They will also be available at Jusu Bar's Calgary locations (currently under the Cru Juice name) in December at Market Mall, Southcentre Mall, Chinook Mall, Bridgeland and Mount Royal.
