We are advocates for pure and natural! We work with local farmers and suppliers who organically grow and harvest, sometimes wild craft, the herbs which we use to make all of our products onsite. The information below provides a quick ‘snap-shot’ of the properties behind the natural ingredients we use in our creams and why we use them. Each ingredient we use acts solely for the maintenance and betterment of the skin – we do not use any type of chemical or synthetic fillers or derivatives of those. Please feel free to ask us about any of our ingredients! Jaydancin takes pride in using fewer ingredients providing a more effective concentration of organic/natural ingredients that work. When you review our list of ingredients you will see how fragile the properties are. We believe the more one alters a natural product or prolongs its life span, the less effective it will be.
