JooMo claim that they have made the first ever truly 100% natural face wash. It’s not something I can verify, but I’m prepared to take it on face value! Formulated for young sensitive skins, they say their ingredients are chosen for their specific active, therapeutic effects on teenage problem skin. These include: calming, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, antiseptic, moisturising, softening, scar healing, skin cell regenerating and oil production balancing.
There is a lot of useful information on their website regarding skin care in general, and they rightly point out that many normal skin care products and soaps can make skin problems worse by changing the electrolyte balance, altering the pH, and stripping the skin of its natural oils and moisture.
A weakened skin ‘barrier’ ultimately leads to allergic reactions and infections, and most worryingly, it is young skin that is most vulnerable.
I’m not in my teens, but I did test the face wash, and sadly for me, I just couldn’t stand the smell of it. It’s labelled as Honey and Orange, but to me it smelled overpoweringly medicinal and I couldn’t wash it off quick enough. Which is a shame, and of course, highly subjective. You may love the smell. And if you suffer from troubled skin, I would say it’s definitely worth a try. Even if you don’t like the smell, it could be worth persevering with it to reap the skin care benefits. And at £4.75 for 100ml it’s very affordable for young wallets.
I’d be interested to hear your opinions if you try this out.
