Natural vs. Synthetic
Updated: Dec 20, 2018
At Joy for your Jewel we handcraft small batches of coconut and almond oil; ensuring you receive all the nutrients nature has to offer.
Natural vs. Synthetic
Our coconut and almond oil are handmade in small batches - through the process of a long-standing traditional method called wet milling. This keeps essential nutrients found in the oil such as phytonutrients and polyphenols. These nutrients have antioxidant, antibiotic, and anti-inflammatory properties which benefits the body naturally. Our handmade luxurious and nourishing oils will condition and protect your skin, leaving it smooth and soft. None of our oils are ever fractionated, refined, bleached, deodorized or exposed to any chemical solvents.
This product can be used for both hair and the body. Handcrafted unrefined coconut oil has many beneficial properties- from improving skin issues (psoriasis, eczema, dandruff) to reducing inflammation in arthritis patients. Its subtle rich aroma and smooth consistency creates a natural barrier between you and the outside world.
Natural- Naturally unrefined (untouched and unprocessed) coconut oil becomes liquid at 76 degrees F (24 C), this is one indicator to let you know whether your products is natural or not.
Synthetic- Coconut Oils made with synthetic ingredients lack essential nutrients due to the stripping nature of chemical solvents.
Rose Coconut Oil
Rose Buds, Petals, and essential oils are infused in handcrafted unrefined coconut oil. This product can be used for dry to normal skin!
Natural- Products naturally enriched with Roses or Rose essential oils tend to be a bit more costly due to the amount of plant material and time consuming traditional distillation process but the vital nutrients found in natural rose products assist the body’s natural functions such as toning and regulating oily skin.
Synthetic- Air fresheners, cleaning products, and personal care items with man-made Rose oil or Rose essential oil are made with harsh chemicals in order to: ‘stretch’ the products for mass production, make scents long-lasting, as well as have the ability to cling to your hair or skin.
Lavender Coconut Oil
Lavender Flowers infused in handcrafted unrefined coconut oil. This product can be used for dry to normal skin!
Natural- Lavender have been used for centuries for it soothing properties. Lavender, under studied circumstances, have been known to induce sleep, calm anxiety, and heal minor cuts and scrapes due to its antibacterial properties.
Synthetic- Like rose products, lavender products are subject to harsh chemicals in order to produce more for mass production. These harsh chemicals can cause an imbalance within the natural body chemistry- from a hormonal disruption to rashes or even more serious skin conditions.
