Joshua Tree Skin Care Offers Organic Products for those Leading an Active Outdoor Lifestyle

Joshua Tree Skin Care (JTree) offers a collection of organic lip balms, healing salves and face sticks designed for those who lead an active outdoor lifestyle.

Originally established in a small town outside of Joshua Tree National Park, JTree's healing salve immediately gained a loyal following among the rock climbing community. As the word spread to cyclists, runners, hikers, skiers and gymnasts, JTree added additional items to keep their customers outside, on the go and doing what they love.

From its new home in Southeast Michigan, JTree's team of on-the-go climbers, cyclists, runners and skiers continues to research and develop potent herbal products that heal skin after tough workouts and protect it from the effects of harsh natural elements.

 
THE JTREE PROCESS

JTree creates its skin care products by slow roasting a blend of premium organic herbs in sunflower oil at a low temperature. This process allows a full range of essential oils to be extracted, which are combined with other natural ingredients to create products that protect, heal and revitalize skin.
