ABOUT JOWAÉ BRAND & PRODUCTS
HOW LONG IS THE EXPIRATION PERIOD FOR THE PRODUCTS?
If the minimum durability of our cosmetic products is less than 30 months, a best before date is indicated on the packaging.
If the minimum durability is greater than 30 months, the maximum duration of use after opening (Period After Opening – PAO) is shown on the product. The PAO is denoted by a clear symbol representing an open jar of cream, accompanied by a number that tells you for how many months the product is safe to use once open.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I HAVE AN ALLERGIC REACTION TO ONE OF YOUR PRODUCTS?
We systematically monitor the safety of our products as part of our "Cosmétovigilance" approach. To help us understand why this reaction occurred, you can contact us, giving your name, phone number/e-mail and the name of the product concerned, at the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org

HOW CAN I OBTAIN THE LIST OF INGREDIENTS IN A PRODUCT?

WHY AREN'T JOWAÉ PRODUCTS CLAIMED AS ORGANIC?
As naturalness is at the heart of all JOWAÉ formulas, we guarantee an average percentage of 95% natural ingredients in all of our formulas.
JOWAÉ does not seek organic certification. We do not use GMOs and we give priority to formulas that offer an excellent balance between skin tolerance, sensory qualities and effectiveness.
WHAT PRESERVATIVES ARE USED IN THE JOWAÉ RANGE?
JOWAÉ formulas do not contain parabens or phenoxyethanol.
The preservatives we use are tested and comply with cosmetic regulations and are also incorporated in the amounts required.
WHAT DO YOU USE IN PLACE OF MINERAL OILS?
We have focused on using plant oils and naturally derived emollients.
DO THE PRODUCTS CONTAIN PALM OIL?
All JOWAÉ formulas are palm oil FREE.
HOW ARE THE PLANT EXTRACTS OBTAINED?
We have selected botanical active ingredients that are obtained using natural extraction methods and do not have a denaturing effect.
ARE JOWAÉ PRODUCTS VEGAN?
The JOWAÉ Laboratory develops products that contain no animal-derived ingredients, with the exception of beehive products.
(Three JOWAÉ products contain beeswax: the NOURISHING LIP BALM, the SOOTHING NOURISHING BALM, and the HAND & NAIL NOURISHING CREAM.)
WHERE ARE JOWAÉ PRODUCTS MADE?
All JOWAÉ products are made in France.
HOW ARE THE BOTANICAL EXTRACTS SELECTED?
JOWAÉ incorporates antioxidant Lumiphenols into all its formulas. These are combined with the core active ingredient, taken from the Asian pharmacopeia.
To select these core active ingredients, we work closely with Professor Ki Hyun Kim – a researcher in plant chemistry, specialized in Korean medicinal and traditional plants.
CAN JOWAÉ PRODUCTS BE USED ON SENSITIVE SKIN?
All JOWAÉ products are suitable for sensitive skin. Skin tolerance tests, conducted under dermatological supervision, have been carried out on a panel of subjects, over 50% of whom had sensitive skin.
ARE JOWAÉ PRODUCTS NON-COMEDOGENIC?
All our formulas are FREE of substances known for being comedogenic.
JOWAÉ skincare products for all skin types, as well as those for combination to oily skin, have undergone thorough testing and are non-comedogenic.
WHAT EXACTLY ARE LUMIPHENOLS?
The JOWAÉ Laboratory selected PATENTED* Lumiphenols and integrated them into all its formulas. This exclusive active ingredient, derived from the succulent plant Sempervivum tectorum, helps the skin to recover its balance and protect itself against daily aggressions (pollution, changes in climate, stress, fatigue, etc.). This is because Lumiphenols contain antioxidants, including polyphenols, tannins, proanthocyanidins and flavonoids.

WHY DO WE FOCUS ON “CLEAN & NATURAL”? At JOWAÉ, we believe that beauty must be natural and respectful of the environment.
In light of this, nature is at the heart of our formulas and we select each of our ingredients with utmost care: their origin, benefits, and impact on your skin.
We continuously improve our products’ natural qualities, while focusing on their effectiveness.
We prefer to work with active ingredient suppliers who are committed to sustainable development and select natural ingredients derived from extraction processes that preserve their properties and composition.
In addition, we list the percentage of synthetic ingredients and their function on each product with a view to remaining transparent.
