For this month’s product profile we bring you, our brand new janegee Beauty Oil.
About 2 years ago, Jane and our chief chemist, Kimber, were brainstorming a product that would be beneficial to cancer patients; specifically those that had radiation burns. There is a long list of ingredients that should be avoided if you’ve gone through radiation, and even though we make natural products, there were things we still had to avoid.

Shea oil is a very nourishing butter that will not clog pores. It is well tolerated on most skin types, and makes a great vehicle to mix with other oils. It can help soothe and reduce the discomfort of inflamed or damaged skin, while reducing the appearance of scarring.
Sunflower oil is used in this mix for its healing and regenerative properties. It can soothe irritated and inflamed skin, promote moisture retention, and defend against external damage.
Jojoba oil is chemically similar to our skin’s own sebum, making it well tolerated by almost all skin types. It absorbs quickly and provides lasting moisture, while creating a protective barrier on the skin. Jojoba can soothe inflammation, itching, dryness, and redness that occur from many different skin conditions. Jojoba is incredibly gentle on sensitive and inflamed skin.
Hemp seed oil reduces inflammation, and soothes skin ailments such as abrasions, burns, eczema and psoriasis. It also helps your skin retain moisture and improves circulation.
Fractionated Coconut Oil
Fractionated coconut oil is non-clogging, soothing, and helps boost circulation. It is absorbed quickly into the skin, and won’t leave a greasy feeling behind. It is well suited to most skin types, and makes an excellent carrier oil. Coconut oil is known for its anti-microbial and anti-fungal properties, and helps prevent bacteria from spreading on the skin. This, coupled with its ability to boost circulation to the skin, allows wounds to heal and new skin to regenerate quicker.
Calendula Infused Oil
Calendula infused oil helps healthy skin cells turn over faster and promotes faster healing. It is often prescribed to patients with dry and inflamed skin due to its impressive anti-inflammatory and wound healing abilities. Calendula increases blood flow and oxygen to wounds and infected areas on the skin, which speeds up the recovery rate of healing. It can help improve skin’s hydration, and helps reduce the irritation to skin from radiation and chemotherapy treatments.
Due to its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects, white turmeric is excellent on irritated, acne-prone, and stressed skin. It can also reduce the markers of inflammation, aid in pain relief, and reduce skin irritation that can occur after radiation treatments. White turmeric has anti-bacterial properties, which helps keep your skin clear from harmful bacteria.
Devil’s claw is a brilliant pain reducer and used medicinally for arthritis in many cultures. When used topically, it can stimulate wound healing and treat the inflammation and pain of various skin conditions.
