How it works
Developed for dry complexions with lustrous oils of Plum (10%), Meadowfoam and Rosehip. Soothe skin after exposure to the elements. Unisex, Ph balanced and dermatologist tested. Formulated for night. Perfect anytime.
Our Face Crème night supports the acid mantle of the skin. It has been evaluated by an independent lab and has been shown to lower the pH value of the skin after 3 weeks usage. Translation: Our Face Crème Night raises the acid level. With increasing age, the skin’s pH becomes less acidic, and thus more susceptible to bacterial growth. This reduced acidity kills fewer bacteria than before, leaving the skin susceptible to bacterial growth and infections. The skin weakens as a result and begins developing problems with increasing age. Face Crème Night has a pH rating of 4.94-5.05. It has been shown to increase the skin hydration level within 1 to 3 hours after application and was found to increase the skin elasticity level within 3 weeks after application.
Jao Face Crème repairs skin with Hydrolyzed Oat Protein to stimulate the skin’s barrier protein synthesis, thereby reducing skin roughness and appearance of wrinkle depth. Tamarind Seed Gum forms a hydrocolloid film on the skin which protects it against water loss, making the skin’s surface supple and improving elasticity. Hexapeptide -48 HCL normalizes the skin’s barrier to restructure mature skin’s surface for a smoother look.
Jao Face Crème contains Plum Oil, an oleic oil with high moisturizing properties. Additional ingredients include Olive Oil Squalane, Shea Butter and Panthenol (Vitamin B5), as well as oils of Meadowfoam, Rosehip, Chamomile and Calendula. Meadowfoam contains naturally occurring tocopherols. Rosehip is high in Vitamins E and A. Chamomile and Calendula oils restore balance to the skin.

Do the ingredients in Jao Face Crème have a beneficial effect?
"Officially, the American Academy of Dermatology does not endorse products and prohibits dispensing or promoting products that have no beneficial effect. In fact, the AAD states unequivocally that the two most effective anti-aging products consumers can purchase are moisturizers and broad-spectrum sunscreens, and that the secret ingredient in most anti-aging creams is actually a well-formulated moisturizer, sometimes enriched with sun-blocking agents." - Zen Liu, Pacific Standard
Jao Face Crème has oat protein. Do oats contain gluten?
We take our advice from the experts at the University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center: “A large body of scientific evidence accumulated over more than 15 years has proven that oats are completely safe for the vast majority of celiac patients. Oats are not related to gluten-containing grains such as wheat, barley and rye. They don’t contain gluten, but rather proteins called avenins that are non-toxic and tolerated by most celiacs (perhaps less than 1% of celiac patients show a reaction to a large amount of oats in their diets). Oats can be in a celiac’s diet provided they are selected from sources that guarantee a lack of contamination by wheat, rye or barley.” http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/
In addition, the article below indicates that gluten in a body care products probably won’t cause a reaction. Obviously, you know your body best and can choose whether to use body care products containing trace amounts of oat protein: the amount of oat protein in Jao Brand Face Crème is less then 2%.
“This is a personal decision that each of us can make, but science indicates that gluten in shampoo and cosmetics is not a threat to those with celiac disease– except for those that may be easily ingested, like lipstick or potentially hand lotion. Researchers have found that unless you have a deep and open wound, gluten cannot be absorbed through the skin making topical items acceptable for use. (A quick reminder: don’t forget to wash your hands after applying a gluten-containing hair or cosmetic product to avoid any unintentional ingestion.) If you have a reaction to a cosmetic or toiletry, consider an alternate culprit like an allergic reaction.”http://www.celiaccentral.org/myths/
Why is there some oil at the top when I opened the tube?
In crafting a Face Crème for Night, with 21% of oils, including Plum, Meadowfoam, and Rosehips, we can not guarantee that some of the oil might migrate out of the formula, and accumulate around the opening at the top. Because we chose not to use synthetic emulsifying waxes, which have a higher melting point, and instead used natural ones made from olives, the melting point is lowered. In shipping in the summer months, or depending where it is kept, you might find some oil at the top of your product when you first use it. This should not adversely effect the product in any way. You can spread the oil with clean fingertips on your face. Pat dry, and then apply the creme.
Why are there glycols in the Face Créme Night?
We have done everything we can to make our product as natural as possible, while also being able to be safe, and effective. We chose to use 3 active ingredients that are proven to have anti aging effects on the skin. Two of these ingredients, Unitamuron (from the Tamarind Seed) and Uniprosyn PS-18 (from Hydrolyzed Oat Protein) are formulated with glycols as part of these compounds, as the glycol molecules allow the active ingredients to penetrate the substrate of the skin, and also act as a preservative. The percentage of glycol in our formula is 1%. All Glycols are not created equal. We are not using Polyethylene Glycol which has had more negatives associated with it. The consumer advocacy group Environmental Working Group (EWG), with no affiliation to any industry, companies, or organization rates Butylene Glycol as 0 on its health concern scale (0=10 Scale). This means zero effect on the skin.
