Hi, I am MaryJo of jo jo's organic skin care. My purpose is to offer skin care free of harmful chemicals and preservatives found in most commercial products. I make all of my own skin care products right in my kitchen. They are made with natural and organic ingredients with essential oils added to give nourishment and healing for all types of skin and skin conditions. I use a plant-based preservative to keep my products free of mold, yeast, and bacteria. The shelf life of jo jo's organic products are one year. I hope you will try some! You can also keep up with new products, specials, and other important information on my blog.
