We are advocates for pure and natural. We work with local farmers/suppliers who organically grow and harvest (sometimes wild crafted) the herbs which we use to make our products onsite. With the extracts from the herbs/plants, we use certified organic sunflower oil as our base ingredient along with organic secondary oils, and essential oils as you will see in our ingredients listed beside our products. 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 fillers or ingredients (natural or otherwise) that do not make the product more effective. Jaydancin takes pride in using fewer ingredients providing a more effective concentration of real ingredients that work. When you review our list of ingredients you will see how fragile the properties are. Common sense would indicate that the more one alters a natural product or prolongs its life span, the less effective it will be.
