Our Story began in 2017.....
Rosie & Joe's was founded by Newcastle local, Rosemary Miller. Rosie began using natural, non-toxic products years ago, which 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 these studies to ensure every Rosie & Joe's product has purpose & effect.
"I love botanical ingredients. Nature provides us with all we need for our physical, mental & spiritual wellbeing. It is therefore 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 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 we 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 our 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.
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 produces the natural oils that condition the skin. This can lead to fine, sensitive skin which wrinkles prematurely.
We recommend trying Forever Face Oil.
It is rich in nourishing vitamins and fatty acids which boost collagen metabolism, then we add Frankincense which works at a cellular level to minimise the lines & wrinkles caused by dehydration plus, it supports the immune system.
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 it's hydrating, unlike other clays. After washing the clay away, spritz the skin with our Facial Toning Spray to control oil production & tone the skin. Then apply Pomegranate Seed Oil Blend which is light yet moisturising with the balancing properties of Geranium Oil to support perfect tone & texture.
Nature provides everything our bodies need to stay healthy. You can revitalise your skin with botanical oils, soothe irritation, diminish scarring and fade pigmentation. Learn to understand your skin, choose the most suitable products for you and we promise, you will love the skin you're in.
