Phytoceramide face cream for serious moisture and repair.
Jao Brand Face Crème – Original
SMOOTH. HYDRATE. REPLENISH. RESTORE.
Drench your skin in the power of the plum. Made with 99% naturally derived ingredients and 3 anti-aging compounds which have been clinically tested and recognized by dermatologists to combat thinning, crepey skin. Soothes skin after exposure to the elements.
Evaluated by an independent lab, Jao Brand Face Crème raises the acid level of the skin with a pH rating of 4.94-5.05. Translation: With increasing age, the skin’s pH becomes less acidic and thus more susceptible to bacterial growth. Face Crème increases the skin hydration level within 1 to 3 hours after application and was found to increase the skin elasticity level within 3 weeks after application.
Developed for dry complexions with phytoceramide-rich oils of Plum (10%), Meadowfoam and Rosehip to naturally stimulate ceramide production in the epidermis. Plum is an oleic oil with high moisturizing properties. Meadowfoam contains naturally occurring tocopherols. Rosehip is high in Vitamins E and A. Additional ingredients include Olive Oil Squalane, Shea Butter and Panthenol (Vitamin B5). Chamomile and Calendula oils are to restore balance to the skin.
Jao Face Crème delivers results with 3 powerful plant-based rejuvenating compounds. Hydrolyzed Oat Protein to stimulate the skin’s barrier protein synthesis, thereby reducing skin roughness and appearance of wrinkle depth. Tamarind Seed Gum forms a hydrocolloid film on the skin which protects it against water loss, making the skin’s surface supple and improving elasticity. Hexapeptide-48 HCL (from Spinach) normalizes the skin’s barrier to restructure mature skin’s surface for a smoother look.
Vegan, unisex, pH balanced, and dermatologist tested.
Formulated for night. Perfect anytime.
Do the ingredients in Jao Face Crème have a beneficial effect?
“Officially, the American Academy of Dermatology does not endorse products and prohibits dispensing or promoting products that have no beneficial effect. In fact, the AAD states unequivocally that the two most effective anti-aging products consumers can purchase are moisturizers and broad-spectrum sunscreens, and that the secret ingredient in most anti-aging creams is actually a well-formulated moisturizer, sometimes enriched with sun-blocking agents.” – Zen Liu, Pacific Standard
Jao Face Crème has oat protein. Do oats contain gluten?
The indication is that gluten in a body care product probably won’t cause a reaction. Obviously, you know your body best and can choose whether to use body care products containing trace amounts of oat protein: the amount of oat protein in Jao Brand Face Crème is less then 2%.
Jao Brand takes advice from the experts at the University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center: “A large body of scientific evidence accumulated over more than 15 years has proven that oats are completely safe for the vast majority of celiac patients. Oats are not related to gluten-containing grains such as wheat, barley and rye. They don’t contain gluten, but rather proteins called avenins that are non-toxic and tolerated by most celiacs (perhaps less than 1% of celiac patients show a reaction to a large amount of oats in their diets). Oats can be in a celiac’s diet provided they are selected from sources that guarantee a lack of contamination by wheat, rye or barley.”
In addition, according to Celiac Central, “This is a personal decision that each of us can make, but science indicates that gluten in shampoo and cosmetics is not a threat to those with celiac disease– except for those that may be easily ingested, like lipstick or potentially hand lotion. Researchers have found that unless you have a deep and open wound, gluten cannot be absorbed through the skin making topical items acceptable for use. (A quick reminder: don’t forget to wash your hands after applying a gluten-containing hair or cosmetic product to avoid any unintentional ingestion.) If you have a reaction to a cosmetic or toiletry, consider an alternate culprit like an allergic reaction.”
Why is there some oil at the top when I opened the tube?
In crafting a natural Face Crème for Night, with 21% of oils, including Plum, Meadowfoam, and Rosehips, Jao Brand cannot guarantee that some of the oil might migrate out of the formula, and accumulate around the opening at the top. Because they chose not to use synthetic emulsifying waxes, which have a higher melting point, and instead used natural ones made from olives, the melting point is lowered. Depending on storage, you might find some oil at the top of your product when you first use it, or here and there throughout. This should not adversely affect the product in any way. You can spread the oil with clean fingertips on your face. Pat dry, and then apply the crème.
Why are there glycols in the Face Créme Night?
Jao Brand have done everything they can to make their product as natural as possible, while also being able to be safe, and effective. They chose to use 3 active ingredients that are proven to have anti aging effects on the skin. Two of these ingredients, Unitamuron H-22 (from the Tamarind Seed) and Uniprosyn PS-18 (from Hydrolyzed Oat Protein) are formulated with glycols as part of these compounds, as the glycol molecules allow the active ingredients to penetrate the substrate of the skin, and also act as a preservative. All Glycols are not created equal and ours only account for 1% in our formula. They are not using Polyethylene Glycol which has had more negatives associated with it. The consumer advocacy group Environmental Working Group (EWG), with no affiliation to any industry, companies, or organization rates Butylene Glycol as 0 on its health concern scale (0=10 Scale). This means zero effect on the skin.
Can my Face Créme smell slightly different tube to tube?
In the Original formula Jao Brand use essential oils and no synthetic fragrance, so a trained nose may notice a slight fragrance variation batch to batch. This is because the essential oils are made from plants and each growing season there are changes due to weather, moisture and sun. The Sensitive Skin version has no essential oils, but plum oil can vary naturally as well.
