The YJ Difference
While many lines call themselves natural, they often still incorporate a variety of chemical ingredients. Likewise, some companies call themselves organic, while they only have a small percentage of organic ingredients. YJ provides the highest amount of truly organic content, and also offers products that are USDA Certified Organic.This means that the botanical ingredients, the soil from which they are cultivated, and the lab where they are lovingly combined, hold to the strictest standards and remain accountable to them. USDA certification is the highest standard in the world for absolute and consistent purity.
And of course, YJ products are free of every possible chemical, including but not limited to: parabens, gmo’s, sulfates, dyes, petroleum, phthalates, and fragrances.
Superb Active Botanicals
YJ products utilize a high variety – up to 27 – of the most advanced, high-performance plants, fruits, and superfoods. These remarkable extracts have been strategically chosen for their clinical-grade efficacy, which comes from their spectrum of transformative bioactive
The Bioactive Youth Complex is an example of these precious, revitalizing extracts – found throughout the YJ product line.
Pure Medical Ingredients
YJ also offers products which combine bioactive botanicals with renowned medical ingredients for the skin. Yet these compounds are not utilized in their typical synthetic or chemical forms. Rather, YJ derives these clinical-grade substances solely from nature and in their simplest, purest forms.
These clinically potent, well researched compounds include: Stem Cells from the remarkable Swiss Apple, Marine Collagen Peptides from wild fish, and Hyaluronic Acid derived from fermented plants. Decades of clinical studies have revealed the power of these compounds to rebuild cells, smooth fine lines, restore firm suppleness, and bring hydrated elasticity.
Rather than only including fantastic extracts, YJ offers intensive amounts of them, in order to ensure optimal potency and efficacy. These extracts lead – and comprise virtually the entirety – of each product formulation, avoiding a foundation of needless fillers that decrease treatment potential. Therefore, YJ products bring clinically measurable results of true skin nourishment and rejuvenation; as well as clarification of problem skin.
Yet while YJ is concentrated, these same products are incredibly gentle. The powerful extracts unite efficacy with soothing, calming, and healing properties. Therefore, YJ products are not only safe for sensitive skin, they are also deeply beneficial.
Additionally, the foundation of high-performance, bioactive botanicals allows for longer lasting products due to smaller dosing per use.
Suitable for a wide audience, YJ products are 100% free of gluten, soy, dairy and synthetic fragrances or color. They are ideal for all skin types, including sensitive.
Unlike other lines, YJ avoids a large mixture of essential oils or powerful fragrances, which can later create irritation. Depending on the product, just a bare hint of one (or at most two) essential oils are used to create subtle aromas. Or in some cases, the organic ingredients alone provide the slightest touch of scent. The scents are lovely – very mild and delicate – being safe and comfortable for sensitivities and long term use.
YJ products are never, ever tested on animals.
Along with being unequivocally against animal testing, YJ is also passionate about helping animals as much as possible. That is why every year YJ donates a portion of profits to rescue groups working around the world to change the lives of animals in need.
YJ considers it a necessity to be wholly respectful of the environment. All the exceptional opal glass bottles are recyclable. All boxes are made from part recycled material and are fully recyclable after use. The inks are 40-60% vegetable based and solvent/petroleum free. Shipping boxes and packaging paper are fully recyclable as well.
Boxes are produced on presses that are 100% carbon neutral and boast zero water waste – extremely unusual for presses which all use extreme amounts of water. They are also 100% free of solvents and VOC’s (volatile organic compounds).
Additionally, 7,000 trees are planted every year to in some way, offset those used.
