Take advantage of this Special Offer!.. To date, Jersey Shore Cosmetics has sold more than 1.4 million units of its Mongongo Organic line. Quattro says, “It’s an aroma with essential oil. … I sat in a room, and I came up with a formula, back and forth – maybe 14 times before I got it where I really wanted it – with my children. You are not going to find that scent [elsewhere]. People have attempted to replicate it, and they haven’t even come close.” Her niche product line is notable not only for its quality, but for its safety in a world in which no cosmetics manufacturers are required to submit their ingredients to the FDA.

That’s what we do at Jersey Shore Cosmetics.” Read more about our company here..

Are Hand Sanitizers Poisoning Our Kids?
Hand sanitizer often has a form of alcohol, such as ethyl alcohol, as an active ingredient and works as an antiseptic. Other ingredients could include water, fragrance, and glycerin. Other non-alcohol based hand sanitizers contain an antibiotic compound called triclosan or triclocarban. This ingredient can also be found in soaps and even toothpaste. These products are often labeled antibacterial, antimicrobial, or antiseptic soaps. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration says triclosan could carry unnecessary risks, given that their benefits have yet to be proved. Recent studies have raised questions about whether triclosan might be hazardous to human health, as studies on the compound are ongoing.

Remember, that the sun's rays can be strong and penetrating on cool and overcast days.

Jersey Shore Cosmetics is a proud sponsor of The Environmental Working Group's Sun Safety Campaign. We are striving to keep you and your loved ones healthy and safe from toxins.
QVC To Acquire Billion Dollar Online Shopping Site Zulily
Less than two years after going public, Internet retailer Zulily Inc. is selling itself for a fraction of its post-IPO high as the flash-sale strategy it helped pioneer has lost its allure among consumers.
The Seattle-based company agreed to be acquired by Liberty Interactive Corp., the parent of home shopping network QVC, in a cash-and-stock deal that values Zulily at around $2.4 billion.
Zulily shares surged 49% on Monday to $18.74, but Liberty is buying the company at a discount to its initial public offering price.
The reason for the decline has been a reversal in Zulily’s fortunes. Founded in 2010 as a retailer of toys and children’s clothes, Zulily grew to top $1 billion in annual sales last year as it expanded into adult apparel and home goods.

WOWEE! It’s a Great Summer at Jersey Shore Cosmetics!
You Like Us! You Really Like Us! We already have more than 22,000 positive reviews for our Mongongo lip conditioners! We are thrilled that you like Mongongo as much as we do…but we kind of thought you would. How can you not love the way your lips feel so silky-smooth, luscious and hydrated from the second you put it on?! Jersey Shore Cosmetics sources the best, most useful ingredients for its products, and our products are made in the USA!Mongongo oil is particularly fascinating! It is derived from a fruit (well…some consider it a nut) that has the most amazing hydrating, regenerating and restructuring properties and offers a unique protection from UV and environmental pollutants in skin applications. And, as with Jersey Shore's other sun protection products, the Environmental Working Group (EWG.org) who rates brands, with regard to health risks related to toxins and harmful ingredients in products, has rated this product as a top pick in safe skincare products, beating out many of the "famous brands."Mongongo is responsibly sourced from the Kalahari Desert, which is a harsh, arid and semi-arid environment in southern Africa covering parts of South Africa, Nambia and Botswana.“Kalahari” takes its name from a local Tswana word meaning "the great thirst" so they need some strong skin conditioners to combat that environment, and mother-nature provides it. In fact, Mongongo oil is used as a body rub by the !Kung bushmen to cleanse and moisturize their skin, and protect it against the harsh desert environment. They also eat Mongongo as their primary food. And are one of the few peoples of the world whose blood pressure does not increase with age. Although this is unlikely to be entirely due to Mongongo, the predominance of this fruit in their diets suggests a link. So now you know where we get Mongongo… let’s get you some too!

Rare Cacay Nut is all the Rage in a Jungle Known for Cocaine
For decades, if not centuries, the Amazon dwellers of southern Colombia didn’t make too much of the cacay nut. They fed it to their livestock, used it to treat wounds and chopped down its trees for firewood.
But then, a few years ago, the global jet-setting crowd found out what the yellow-ish oil from the protein-rich nut could do for their skin. And suddenly, the cacay (pronounced kahk-ai) has become a red-hot commodity, providing the key ingredient to anti-aging facial creams that can fetch $200 an ounce in beauty shops in Los Angeles and London.
While most of the nuts come from wild trees in remote areas, new plantations are popping up in impoverished parts of Colombia that were better known for cocaine and anti-government rebel groups. Vitaliano Ordonez, a farmer who used to give the nuts to his cows, sold eight of the animals to buy 120 saplings. Because only a few are mature enough to produce this year, he’s scavenging every kernel from two old trees on his small dairy farm in Puerto Rico, Colombia, 300 kilometers (190 miles) southeast of Bogota.
“I won’t let even one nut go to waste,” said Ordonez, 70. Each apple-sized nut pod contains three seeds, each bigger than an almond. He expects to collect about 60 kilograms (133 pounds) of cacay kernels this year. That may generate as much as 300,000 pesos ($198), or the equivalent of almost half the country’s minimum monthly wage.
The boom is in part the work of Alberto Jaramillo. While scientists have highlighted the nut’s virtues for more than a decade, it was Jaramillo, the head of Bogota-based Kahai SAS, who found a market for the oil after attending trade shows and hiring a trial study of the oil’s use in skincare. Kahai, which buys nuts from growers and scavengers, including Ordonez, expects to double sales this year.
Jaramillo’s Kahai sends workers through the countryside on motorcycles and trucks, sometimes driving more than 250 kilometers to hunt for trees and pick up nuts. During the harvest season from February to April, one mature tree can yield 400 kilos of nuts. Kahai pays 1,000 pesos a kilo for whole nuts, so about 400,000 pesos per tree. He’s also encouraging farmers like Ordonez to plant more trees.
Native to parts of Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Venezuela, the cacay nut was long used by indigenous people to treat wounds and light lamps. As those uses faded, trees that reached 40 meters (130 feet) high became appealing targets for loggers. That’s begun to change with the renewed appeal of natural oils as beauty treatments.
Sales of face oils are rising, sparking new products from cosmetics-maker L’Oreal SA and Procter & Gamble Co.’s Olay brand made of everything from grape and apricot seeds to lavender and marjoram. Beauty-oil sales at retailer Sephora SA tripled in three years.
In the U.S., where high-end facial skincare sales have largely been flat over the past year, face-oil sales surged 24 percent to $42 million, data from NPD Group show. They’ve more than doubled over the past two years.
The small but growing appeal of cacay in the $465 billion personal-care market has been fueled by the increased popularity of Morocco’s argan oil, which got picked up by hair-care makers such as L’Oréal and Unilever NV, and is now included in 14 percent of new hair treatments, according to market research from Mintel. Cacay contains key ingredients in anti-aging products, including antioxidants and retinoids, according to Kahai.
“It’s going to be the new little wave,” said Jamie Sherrill, who uses cacay in some of the Nurse Jamie skincare products she sells at her Santa Monica spa. “I was always a fan of retinol and argan oil, and we were initially searching for ways to improve on these two ingredients.”
Sherrill, who appeared with socialite Paris Hilton on the reality show “The Simple Life,” offers 1-ounce “facial elixir” with cacay for $198 and a men’s shaving oil version. A three-item set of anti-aging products with cacay retails for 1,060 pounds ($1,555) at Harrods department store in London.
The venture isn’t without risk for Kahai and small growers. While plant oils are hot now, cosmetics fads often change, and there is lots of competition from other plant oils.
“It’s more expensive than a lot of your regular oils,” said Judi Beerling, a research manager at the London-based consulting firm Organic Monitor. “As more becomes available, obviously the prices will become less of an issue.’
Jaramillo said some companies are holding off on using cacay because there isn’t enough stable supply. It could take another three years, he said.
Jersey Shore Cosmetics may be formulating new, Cacay Face Oil and Cacay Body Oil products, using pure Cacay nut oil, in the future. Jersey Shore Cosmetics, Cacay face and body oil products are expected to launch in the Fall of 2016. When formulated, Jersey Shore Cosmetics Cacay nut formulations will be 100% natural, cruelty-free and vegan.
