    Karen Behnke, a wellness entrepreneur, created Juice Beauty with the philosophical approach of developing beauty products from a wellness point of view. She believed that skincare should start first with an antioxidant and vitamin-rich organic botanical juice, rather than the unsafe PEGS/petroleum derivatives or the water that most skincare brands use as their base. Multiple clinical tests and clinical validation showed that Juice Beauty products are effective and safe.
    Malic acid from organic green apples are rich in vitamins, potent malic alpha-hydroxy acids, phytonutrients, flavonoids, phenols; and provide powerful antioxidant activity to help give you beautiful skin. Malic acid and the glycolic acid (from organic cane sugar) are alpha hydroxy acids which exfoliate skin leaving it cleaner. [3] These acids help even skin tone and refine skin. [1,2] The sage, lemon and dandelion botanicals help purify your skin. Coconut cleansers help emulsify and remove impurities.

    The green apples in Juice Beauty's products come from organic farms in Washington state. The juice from the green apples has malic acid, and the organic raw cane sugar has glycolic acid - both are alpha-hydroxy acids which help exfoliate and refine skin.[1,2] Alpa hydroxy acids work by disrupting cellular adhesions through removing ions which allows exfoliation.[3] (Note that glycolic acid is also used in stronger concentrations to adminster chemical peels at dermatology offices.) Sage leaf has potent antioxidant properties and also cleanses the skin.
