Skin Juice was founded in 1996 by local beauty therapist Joanne Dampney. For eight years, Joanne owned and operated a successful salon with rituals and treatments that focused on holistic and natural choices.
At the same time, she struggled to find poducts that reflected theethos of her life and business. Joanne gradually began to utilise her knowledge of aromatherapy, combining this with her fascination for plant oils and their therapeutic effects.
She began researching the function and application of various plant oils on the skin and the results when applied using different methods. For example cleansing oils opposed to suds up style cleansers, which was a very unique concept back when Skin Juice was fist born.
Joanne learnt more about the nature of plant oils and their skin loving or biocompatible properties and began using these oils to nourish and balance the skin in a way other cosmetic formulas couldn’t.
Natural skincare at this time was very, very new and Joannes loyal beauty salon clients quickly became research subjects! "I’m pleased to say, many of my early ‘guinea pigs’ still use Skin Juice today. It wasn’t long before word spread about this innovative concept which was breaking all the ‘rules’ of skincare with cleansing oils instead of soapy formulas and night oils in place of night creams" Joanne said.
"The support we received was beyond our wildest expectations and we quickly grew to a salon staff of seven with the majority of our business focused on facial treatments and skincare purchases," she said.
These days Joanne is out of the salon and able to focus 100% of her time on Skin Juice, nurturing its growth and continuing to reach the growing demand for safe, healthy, natural, organic yet effective skincare.
