Healthy foods in ZenJenSkin Products

My first thought when developing the ZenJenSkin care line was I want it to be so natural that you can eat it.  I was completely sold out that eating well was healthy for you so I thought why not put those same healthy foods on your skin.  I chose foods like avocados, broccoli, acerola cherries, carrots, pomegranates, oranges, blue berries, lemons and so much more.  This is how the phrase SKINFOOD FROM MOTHER EARTH was coined.
