Juice Beauty Skin Care Line Review
Juice Beauty is an online beauty product and makeup retailer endorsed by Gwyneth Paltrow and dedicated to organic ingredients. Here’s our Juice Beauty review.
What is Juice Beauty?
Juice Beauty is an online beauty product retailer that sells a wide variety of anti-aging skin creams, beauty serums, moisturizers, and toners.
Juice Beauty is endorsed by Gwyneth Paltrow, who is officially titled the “Creative Director” of the company. The company, however, was founded by a woman named Karen Behnke, described as a “serial wellness entrepreneur”.
One of the company’s goals is to offer authentic organic formulas that provide:
“powerful, clinically-validated results without the use of potentially harmful ingredients.”
With that in mind, popular products include the Smoothing Eye Concentrate, Green Apple Nutrient Eye Cream, Stem Cellular Repair Moisturizer, Green Apple Age Defy Hand Cream, and Organic Lip Moisturizer.
The company is called “Juice” Beauty because all of the products contain organic juices.
What Are Authentically Organic Formulas?
You’ll see the phrase “authentically organic formulas” displayed numerous times across Juice Beauty’s website and product packaging.
What does this actually mean?
At the company’s ingredients page, JuiceBeauty.com, it goes into further details about how each ingredient is chosen and how those ingredients work. Some of the key details about those ingredients include:
-Juice Beauty employs a team of chemists who start with an organic botanical juice base to create each and every skin care product.
-That juice base contains aloe, jojoba, grape seed, and shea butter and is infused with citrus juices.
-After forming the base, the chemists then “add powerful age defying or blemish clearing ingredients” to deliver superior results.
-Fillers like petroleum glycols or excessive water are not added. In fact, Juice Beauty has an “unacceptable ingredients list” you can view <href=”#sthash.OoQ0btud.dpbs” target=”_blank”>here.
-The majority of ingredients are purchased from “local West Coast USDA Certified Organic farms”.
-Many of the products are manufactured with solar power.
Ultimately, Juice Beauty wants to differentiate itself from the dozens of beauty product manufacturers that claim to use natural ingredients. There’s no certification process required when you say you use “natural” ingredients. Instead of simply calling its ingredients “natural”, Juice Beauty takes an extra step and makes sure they’re USDA Organic certified.
Juice Beauty Ingredients
Juice Beauty publishes its full list of ingredients on their website. There are dozens of natural and organic ingredients included in the many different Juice Beauty products. However, certain ingredients are more common than others.
As mentioned above, Juice Beauty products start with a base containing grape juice, shea butter, jojoba oil, aloe leaf juice, and citrus juices. Here’s an overview explaining why each ingredient is included in the formula:
— Organic Grape Juice: Organic grape juice is rich in vitamins and naturally contains tartaric alpha-hydroxy acid. It’s also rich in resveratrol antioxidants to help promote healthier-looking skin. Many Juice Beauty formulas contain a specific ingredient extracted from grape juice, resveratrol.
— Organic Aloe Leaf Juice: Organic aloe leaf juice is rich in glycoproteins and has naturally soothing properties. It also works as nature’s moisturizer and can boost your skin’s natural moisture content.
— Organic Jojoba Oil: Organic jojoba oil is derived from the seeds of a desert shrub called jojoba. It’s included in Juice Beauty skin creams because it acts as a rich antioxidant and is high in essential fatty acids and nutrients.
— Shea Butter: Shea butter comes from the pit of the fruit from the karate tree, where it moisturizes, soothes, and softens the skin.
— Organic Citrus Juices: Apple juice and lemon juice are both listed as key citrus juices added to the base Juice Beauty formula. Both are rich in vitamins while also offering phytonutrients and flavonoids. Lemon juice in particular is rich with lycopene. Both work as antioxidants to help clarify and improve skin tone.
Juice Beauty products also contain dozens of other ingredients. Here are just some of the ingredients included in various formulas: acai berry, Goji berry, rose hip fruit, fruit stem cells blend, champagne grape seed oil, passion flower, organic orange, kiwi seed oil, pineapple enzymes, sweet cherry, carrot root, pomegranate, red raspberry, raw cane sugar, blueberry seed oil, cucumber extract, licorice root, green tea leaf, coconut oil, sweet almond oil, sesame oil, oat, agave leaf, corn extract, grapefruit, bamboo powder, hyaluronic acid, rose powder, and passion flower.

Juice Beauty TV Blemish Offer
Juice Beauty recently made headlines for its seen-on-TV (and in magazines) blemish fighting system.
The company specifically advertises four blemish clearing solutions packaged together for $29.99. Those blemish clearing solutions include:
— Blemish Clearing Cleanser
— Blemish Clearing Serum
— Green Apple Peel Blemish Clearing
— Oil-Free Moisturizer
Juice Beauty “Unacceptable Ingredients”
As mentioned above, Juice Beauty is very serious about its ingredients. It’s so serious that it actually maintains a list of banned ingredients which will never be used in Juice Beauty products.
You can view that list of banned ingredients on the website. Some of the key ingredients on that list include:
— Artificial and synthetic dyes (dyes like Blue#1 and Yellow#5 are produced from petroleum and may be laced with harmful chemicals and carcinogens)
— Artificial fragrances (often contain hundreds of untested chemicals or heavy metals)
— Benzoyl peroxide (currently about to be banned in Europe due to potential toxicity)
— BHA and BHT (preservatives that may cause endocrine disruption and increase your risk of certain cancers)
— GMOs (genetically modified organisms)
— Lead acetate (color additive used in hair dyes and lip products purported to increase neurotoxicity)
— Isopropyl alcohol (dries and irritates the skin)
— Mineral oil (may be laced with harmful chemicals)
Instead of using artificial and synthetic dyes, for example, Juice Beauty replaces these chemicals with plant pigments (phyto-pigments).
Instead of using isopropyl alcohol, the company uses vegetable glycerin and organic botanicals.
By replacing synthetic formulas with organic ingredients, Juice Beauty claims to offer stronger, healthier, longer-lasting results on your skin.
