About our Owner: Rena'e Thomas-James / Just a Jamaican girl weathering the Canadian -40Wife to the one and only Marlon James. Mother of two, Entrepreneur, Blogger.
There are three things that I am most passionate about in this world: God, family and all things beauty.
Having experimented with many different products and ingredients for as long as I have known myself, I am enthused about this platform to share my very own line of natural hair and skin products.
I am originally from the beautiful island of Jamaica however my family and I moved to Canada for greater opportunities.
Needless to say, I was extremely concerned. I would seek help from local friends who would look at me and say “It’s Canada, yes it gets very dry here. Just keep applying lotion”. This never worked and I would still get dry to the point where my skin would break (I was not happy with this).
The products that I purchase from the stores did nothing to help the situation. Then it clicked, “Renae go back to your roots".
Yes, I went way back to when we (my blood line) would make medicine, hair & skin oils and treatments etc; from plants, seeds, trees etc. So, I went back to my ancestors' blueprint.
Upon experimenting with a few ingredients that I put together, I realized that my hair and skin responded nicely to this combination of natural ingredients that I formulated.
I therefore started creating my own products and after several months of using my very own products, there was a positive change in the health of my hair and skin. My hair flourished and my skin was glowing again (yes this made me happy!).
I therefore saw it fit to expand my studies in this area and started to manufacture and distribute the products to family and friends.
I got positive feedback which inspired me to formally incorporate these products in my company.
Our motto is: Relax, Nourish, Rejuvenate…
Because you deserve it…
We aim to provide “you” our customers with products of the highest quality to suit your daily personal NEEDS...
Pamper yourself and give your body a special treatment. These are natural ways to relieve stress and feel relaxed. As Audre Lorde said,“Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.”
Your age, job, and stage don’t matter, everyone deserves self-care. During your me-time, you can do some meditation, have a massage, warm baths, deep condition your hair and skin.
