For about most of my life I have been intrigued by a couple of things: how things work & the beauty of plants. When I was a teenager I remember finding a book of my mothers called "the Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs". And from then on my interest took root. My path has always been unexpected, non-linear, and unconventional, and my studies have always paralleled that path. I have lead a life learning about the arts, organic farming, cooking, holistic health and herbalism.
About three years ago my only grandmother, June, past away. She had a gentle soul and was a strong, practical, understated woman who lead a very modest life. Somehow, in her life of simplicity, she managed to save some money to give to each of her grandchildren. A gesture that was very heart-opening and unexpected to all of us.
With my grandmother in my heart and a year and a half of research, designing, and formulating. I've woven together all of my favorite things Into one skincare line. . .
What makes June Botanicals different? It's because, from the very start I have very carefully curated a line of products with utmost attention and detail. I care about what goes into our products, where it is coming from and how well it works. My unique gift to you is that WE MAKE IT PERSONAL AND WE PAY ATTENTION TO THE DETAILS.
June Botanicals will always use 80% or higher USDA Certified Organic ingredients and 100% plant based ingredients. We research every single ingredient to make sure that it is completely void of any type of chemical processing. for example: a refined oil may be certified organic but extracted by using chemicals like hexane at high temperatures which breaks down the nutrients of the oil. Most essential oils and natural perfumes are extracted by using hexane, acetone, di-methylene-chloride. These chemicals are known carcinogens and can deeply effect the health of your liver, kidneys, central nervous systems and therefore your skin. We make sure to use only cold-pressed oils and therapeutic grade essential oils that are co2 extracted.
We use QUALITY ASSURANCE WITH ETHICALLY SOURCED PRODUCTS. Everything we used is ethically sourced (even the packaging). When possible, we source things grown and produced in the U.S. Preferably close to home in the Pacific Northwest or California. We will never use an ingredient that is endangered (like rosewood or sandalwood), or that is endangering other species to obtain it (like palm oil). We source from companies and/or farms that carry the same belief systems as us.
I am so excited to share my products with all of you. Beautiful products for men and women with important active nutrients for your skin to stay protected while it heals, strengthens and glows more than you've ever seen.
