Ja Nene Natural Body Products

At Ja Nene Natural Body Products, visitors find over 70 unique, natural and organic skincare, bath and body, pet and household products - all made right here in our shop located at Three Rivers. We are the only Campaign For Safe Cosmetics member in the San Joaquin Valley and received Tulare County's 2010 Entrepreneur of the Year award. The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, sponsored by the Environmental Working Group (EWG), is our nation's only organization requiring members to provide safe, non-toxic personal care products. Members have agreed to provide complete labeling of ingredients, only use EU Cosmetic Directive approved ingredients, and provide timely reports to the EWG of all ingredients used. Ja Nene Natural Body Products was one of the first 400 companies globally to join the Campaign in 2004. This is significant, because there are still no nationwide standards for our personal products. The FDA only oversees food and drugs, not cosmetics.

My business grew out of a need for access to effective and affordable, natural skin care products. As a science graduate specializing in genetics, I was aware of the negative effect chemical ingredients have on the DNA of skin cells. When a thirteen year-old wound on my husband's amputation site healed in two weeks using my first product (a body oil blend), I knew I was on the right track. As our small community heard of this, I got requests for more products. I discovered there were many people who needed natural products. We now have two stores, ship worldwide, and sell wholesale and retail. We will always manufacture and sell locally in Three Rivers, however. It's great natural beauty that renews our souls was the original inspiration to create natural products.

The shop is located on our 10 acre home site on the North Fork of the Kaweah River 1/4 mile past the Lion's Club facility. Originally settled by Indians and, later in the 1800s by members of the original Kaweah Colony, it is home to our family and an interesting array of wildlife; red-tailed hawks, grey herons, black bear, deer, and hummingbirds.

Living in this wild environment encourages us to create products with natural and sustainable ingredients. We not only make and sell our own products, we also teach about product safety and conduct hands-on classes. We invite you to come join the fun.

Her products are amazing, I have roseacea and it helps. In her picture that is Breezy and Thistle the horses. They love to live there! One of the horses is a rescue horse who was starved, and Janene has let her live there to rehab. She is very kind.

I cannot say enough about the amazing products JaNene has created. They feel so good on your skin, and you know you are doing yourself a huge benefit and favor by using them. The essentials I need include water, air, food and her skin products.

I love all of Ja Nene's natural skin products, and Ja Nene is a wealth of good information about natural skin care. I especially like the clay mask - it does a fabulous job without drying out your skin, like other clay masks tend to do.

I Love all of her products, especially the new lip tints and glosses. Her lotions smell great and are great if you have sensitive skin. Her massage oils are also very healing. And then there is Janene herself. She is super knowledgeable about apothecary, who is willing to listen and help you find the perfect product. She has years and years of experience that she puts into all of her recipes. She is also great fun to be around. You can’t go wrong here!!
