Jurlique is an internationally known beauty brand that uses only natural ingredients. Recently, I had the opportunity to talk directly with Jurlique about the brand and here is what they had to say…
(Q) Tell me a little more about the Jurlique brand…
Jurlique was born and grown in Australia, and is loved the world over for natural, high performance skin care. We’ve dedicated over 25 years to growing organic ingredients on our Australian farm, and we apply advanced technologies to create potent extracts. After using a Jurlique skin care ritual, people often comment on “the Jurlique glow” and the highly sensorial nature of our handcrafted botanical formulations.
(Q) So, your products benefit anyone with dry, oily, normal/combination, and sensitive skin?
Yes! We have a complete regimen for every skin type and concern, such as our new Calendula Redness Rescue range for sensitive skin or our bestselling Herbal Recovery products for those concerned with the first signs of aging. We often hear from clients that they’ve tried lots of different products and that Jurlique skin care has really helped balance their oily or dry skin.
(Q) Tell me a little more about biodynamic farming concept…
Biodynamic agriculture builds on the strong foundation of organic agriculture and optimizes the growth of healthy plants without artificial pesticides or fertilizers and increasing biodiversity. Here at Jurlique, we farm in accordance with strict organic standards. We believe that plants grown in nutrient-rich earth are stronger and healthier and better equipped to withstand disease, pests and stress. The soil is the basis of where we start all our production, so it starts even before the seed; it starts with looking after the earth. On the farm, we grow in an organic way which means that we don’t use any chemicals, pesticides or herbicides that aren’t from nature or created naturally. The Jurlique farm is certified organic and where most of the botanical ingredients are grown, hand-picked, dried and then formulated at our production facility just down the road.
(Q) Tell me a little more about the “New Calendula” how it is used with Jurlique…
At Jurlique, we’ve been using Calendula Extract as a soothing ingredient in many products for years. Our organic farming techniques have proven our Calendula to be stronger and more potent than other commercial varieties, and so we applied that expertise to creating our new Calendula Redness Rescue range that’s really effective for sensitive skin. The 3-step range includes Calendula Redness Rescue Calming Mist, Restorative Treatment Serum, and Soothing Moisturising Cream, which together deliver the most natural, efficacious formulas that offer immediate results to sensitive skin. Calendula Redness Rescue products are also great for all skin types skin affected by the elements such as wind, cold or the sun, or to soothe any temporary irritation.
(Q) What Jurlique products would you recommend for one with combination skin?
The most important place to start is choosing the right serum and moisturizer – Herbal Recovery Advanced Serum and Night Cream are full of antioxidants to restore a healthy glow for combination skin, and Skin Balancing Face Oil has pure plant oils that actually mimic skin’s natural lipids to help balance oily and dry areas for a perfectly smooth and glowing complexion.
(Q) I’ve heard so many wonderful things about the Rosewater Balancing Mist, however; I have yet to try it. Tell me a little more about this product…
Rosewater Balancing Mist is a perennial editor and makeup artist favorite – it hydrates skin, sets makeup and can be used throughout the day for a quick refresher. Formulated with thousands of real rose petals, our signature mist hydrates all skin types and people often comment that our Rosewater Balancing Mist smells like real fresh-cut roses. If you think of your skin like a sponge, misting first and then applying serums and moisturizers on top actually helps products to penetrate deeper. My secret is to keep a bottle at my desk and also in the bathroom. Another tip – keep a bottle in the fridge on a warm day for an instant cool down.
(Q) And is the Rosewater Balancing Mist a best seller?
Yes, Rosewater Balancing Mist is our #1 global bestseller.
(Q) Now I know this is a little off topic, but I have to ask, what is your stance on animal testing?
We believe in creating our products with respect to our environment and without the use of animal testing. We don’t test on animals as part of our global product development process, and work closely with our ingredient vendors to make sure they’re aware of our values and policies. As we’re sold globally, we also adhere to market-specific regulations around animal testing. Further information can be found at http://www.jurlique.com/discover-jurlique/animal-testing/ .
(Q) Tell me a little more about the Jurlique Ideas of Beauty Fund…
The Jurlique Ideas of Beauty Fund is a global nonprofit initiative to support beautiful ideas that empower and educate women around the world. Here in the US, our partner charity is Chrysalis, who we work with to help empower under-served women create a path to self-sufficiency. Through volunteer efforts and mentorships that improve job skills and build self-confidence, Chrysalis and Jurlique are joining forces to help serve the needs of women seeking employment in the Los Angeles area. I’m actually a mentor in this year’s Women’s Empowerment Program and am grateful for to be part of such an incredible experience.
