Rosie & Joe's was founded by Rosemary Miller. She began using natural, non-toxic products many years ago and it was life changing. This prompted her interest in organics & essential oils, blending her own skincare & household cleaning products. In 2016 she decided to abandon her 9 to 5 and get serious about re-educating herself. She has studied aromatherapy & formulation and continues her studies to ensure she remains up to date with the most current findings within the industry.
"I love botanical ingredients. Nature provides us with all we need for our physical, mental & spiritual wellbeing. I believe it is our obligation to nurture our environment with gratitude & respect.
Each formula is 100% natural with zero toxins & synthetics. I am absolutely against the use of animals for product testing and I ensure these principles right through our supply chain, from the raw ingredients to the finished product. I package in reusable & recyclable glass, compostable pouches & containers. I deliver using Australia's only carbon neutral courier company Sendle. You have to keep reminding yourself, whatever you are not changing you are choosing. In November 2020 I proudly received 1st Place, 2nd Place and Editor's Choice in the Australian Non-Toxic Awards for two products. It was so wonderful to be recognised for my effort."
Which skin type am I?
First, it's beneficial to know your skin type & understand how your skin behaves. Our integumentary system is a complex matrix of connective layers constantly manufacturing new cells. There are 3 main skin types influenced by many skin conditions. The pH of adult skin is normally around 5.3, slightly acidic. This helps the skin to fight free radicals & microbes that cause inflammation like acne & dermatitis.
Let's take a look at the basics......
After cleansing, is your skin tight? Do you experience rough, flaky patches? These are typical signs of dry skin that under produce the natural oils needed to condition the skin. This can lead to fine, sensitive skin which wrinkles prematurely.
We recommend Argan Oil or Forever Face Oil.
Both are rich in nourishing vitamins and fatty acids which boost collagen metabolism. Forever Face Oil has the added benefits of Frankincense which works at a cellular level to minimise the lines & wrinkles caused by dehydration and, it's properties boost the immune system to keep us healthy & energised.
After cleansing, does your skin feel greasy? Do you have shiny, thickened patches, with enlarged pores. Are you prone to pimples? These are typical indicators of oily skin. You might be shocked to know that botanical oils can reduce excessive oil production & control bacteria that causes blemishes
First, cleanse with Australian Green Clay
This absorbs excess oils & draws impurities to the skins surface to be washed away without stimulating the cells to produce more sebum. Then apply Precious Oils Night Serum. This beautiful blend contains oil regulating Jojoba & Marula Oil with Argan & Rose Hip Seed Oils which are rich in vitamin E and scar repairing properties. Then we add the queen of all oils, Rose absolute which has a toning effect on capillaries & is a mild astringent.
Combination skin is of course dry in areas but oily in other places. So what products suit?
Ghassoul Clay cleanses & detoxes the skin but unlike other clays, it is hydrating. After washing the clay mask away, spritz the skin with our calming Facial Toning Spray to control oil production & tone the skin. Then apply Pomegranate Seed Oil Blend which is light on application but very moisturising with the balancing properties of Geranium Oil to support perfect tone & texture. It will also help optimise your skins pH.
You can revitalise your skin with botanical ingredients, soothe irritation, diminish scarring and fade pigmentation. Learn to balance your skin's pH and natural oil production by choosing the most suitable products for you and we promise, you will see visible change & improvement in the tone & texture of your skin.
