Two entrepreneurs created skin products nurtured by nature.
We’ve all heard of beauty spas (some of us dream about them) but before jlounge entered the scene, no one knew it was possible to have a natural nail salon & beauty spa. Thanks to a little serendipity and a lot of ingenuity, Julie Perington and Jennifer Zrubek joined forces to create a new kind of spa experience.
“We both agreed that there was a need to expand and provide Colorado with a natural nail bar and spa,” says Perington. “We were interested in offering a clean, relaxing, lounge type retreat that provided natural and organic treatments with exceptional customer service.”
Now, three years since the opening, their eco-friendly, clean and natural values have inspired the creation of their very own skincare line – jlOrganics.
“We decided to launch our own line so that we could hand pick the products and ingredients specific to the Colorado climate, add hydration and all of the needs to combat the elements here,” says Perington.
Not only will their products be available at their shop but their plant and food based products will also be available online through their website and in other retail shops by late spring.
Each of the specific ingredients comes from sustainable, Certified Organic and wildcrafted sources. Most ingredients are from local US farms, but when exclusive ingredients have to be sourced globally, it is done through Fair Trade projects that empower women in developing countries.
“We are carefully selecting new products as we grow, including a hyaluronic take home mask, antioxidant herbal serum, amazing facial oil blends and a calendula moisture creme,” Zrubek says.
Here’s a sneak peak into some of their favorite jlOrganics products, all part of the newly launched line and perfect for combating Colorado’s dryness.
