JSL Essentials was founded by Katie Warner; an experienced Sports and Holistic Therapist. Katie has an unconditional love for all things natural and began her holistic journey at a very young age. She grew up on an agricultural farm in the Kent countryside, which soon unveiled a passion for all living things. After watching the process of her parents’ planting seeds, watching them grow and then eventually consuming them herself, Katie realised the incredible health benefits of plants and decided she wanted to harness those benefits and share them with the world. This very soon led to a qualification in Cosmetic Legislation and Organic Skincare, where Katie began her journey in formulating and manufacturing her skin, hair and home care products.
Here’s a few words from our founder – “I knew I wanted to incorporate my farming roots within a business venture at some point, which is where the inspiration of creating plant based beauty products originated. Unfortunately I lost my Father to mental health 12 years ago, which is when I began formulating. Each product formula has taken many years to perfect. I undertook a Product Legislation course as well as an Organic Skincare Making course and eventually gained my Cosmetic Product Safety Reports for each formula – this was an incredibly gruelling process but the desire to dedicate something to my late father was my sole motivation. JSL were my Father’s initials, so the entire range is dedicated to him and all the wonderful plant based knowledge he passed on to me.
Mental Health is a condition that is very close to my heart, so a % of every sale goes towards Samaritans Charity. Being that the entire product line is predominantly plant based, you can imagine we are an eco friendly company. We use bottles that are 35% recycled, all of our packaging is recyclable and/or compostable and with every sale made, a tree is planted via a company called Ecologi.”
JSL Essentials was launched in 2021 and was born out of the belief that healthy living and eating is the best foundation for a wholesome happy and abundant life. The entire range was built upon recognising the potential in botanical ingredients to boost the skin and hair’s natural, protective qualities. Gentle anti-inflammatory and soothing plant-based ingredients are at the heart of JSL Essentials and our continuous mission is to provide the purest botanicals.
