These Handmade Canadian Body Products Are So Natural You Can Eat Them (Win!)

December 22, 2020

Natural body products are all the rage these days, but we often wonder, how close to Mother Earth-approved do they really come?

Victoria-based Jusu Wellness Inc. is rising to that challenge, making pure, organic, plant-based products for consumption, body and personal care, including its JUSU Bar juice bar in Victoria, B.C., and an extensive product offering including cold-pressed juices, skin care and body products, aromatherapy, and home cleaning lines. Founder Bruce Mullen started the company following the death of his wife. She had passed away from breast cancer and, while their family was going through her treatment, they began clearing from their home any kind of chemical product. Bruce believes that we are making ourselves sick by ingesting and exposing our bodies to chemicals. He has since put all of his energy into Jusu, to help create all-natural, healthy products to help people protect their own families. And, get this: the body products are so completely natural, you can actually eat them!

Below, our top five Jusu Wellness product picks, and a chance for you to win! —Vita Daily

Created with Japanese peppermint, all-natural Vanilla Peppermint Body Lotion ($22) is formulated to soothe and refresh. Its vanilla is a natural antioxidant, aphrodisiac and relaxant that leaves you feeling passionately energized.

Harmonize, purify and brighten your complexion with this Saké Pearl Face Mask ($28) created especially for normal/sensitive skin types. Saké kasu, a fermented rice brimming with bioavailable vitamins, and ocean water pearl powder work to refine pores, reduce redness and balance skin tone.

Jusu’s Honey Shea Hair Treatment ($40) deeply penetrates the hair shaft, smoothes the cuticle and leaves hair shiny and soft. It uses whole-food nutrition to strengthen, nourish and restore healthy hair, without the damaging ingredients found in most conditioners.

For soon-to-be mamas, this Belly Butter with Sweet Orange and Vanilla ($30) is formulated especially for a growing belly while being incredibly restorative for the rest of the body, too. It encourages cell renewal and elasticity with organic shea butter, aloe vera and grapeseed oil while softening, nourishing and hydrating a growing tummy.

Use Jusu’s non-toxic All Purpose Cleaner ($9) for bathrooms, kitchen and household surfaces (except glass and polished wood). It’s blended with cinnamon essential oil and orange essential oil for powerful grease-cutting capabilities.

    I love using natural products and organics because I leaves me without the worry that I’m putting harsh chemicals in my home as well as in/on mine and my family’s bodies.

    Using truly natural products is so important to me because it is so important to be mindful of what you put on your skin and how it effects your body. Natural products are so much better and safer for you! Instagram handle is CurlyContestQueen

    We’re exposed to so many toxic compounds daily, the least we can do is not add to the problem! The Earth and our bodies are happier with natural products!

    I want to use more pure products. I feel it is much safer for all of us. Other things do use a lot of chemicals in them. It is not good for our bodies or for our waters

    Thank you

    As I commented, at great length on the VitaDaily IG site, I like products, (Natural, Organic or not,) with the least amount of ingredients, that I can actually recognize or even pronounce. As a society, we have been groomed to slather on lotions, potions, makeup, creams etc, without really knowing the long term effects on our bodies for decades. It is just common sense to question products that have more than 2 lines of listed ingredients. And as for pricing, spending more money for a product does not necessarily make a product less dangerous as far as I am concerned. @Diamondchick60

    Using truly natural products on my skin and in my home is important to me because there are enough toxins in the world that if I control these two aspects, it would be a great thing. Thank you. @soulseeker00

    I use natural products because skin is the body’s largest organ and absorbs the ingredients applied to it. Chemicals entering through the skin don’t get filtered out. Chemicals also enter the environment and can cause serious problems when they interact with other compounds.
