About Juice Beauty
Karen Behnke, a serial wellness entrepreneur who built one of the first corporate wellness companies in the country, became passionate about the safety and efficacy of personal care products upon becoming pregnant with her first child at the age of 40. Experiencing hormonal changes and the beginning of lines in her skin, Karen set out to find healthy skin care solutions that delivered visible results. She quickly discovered the majority of leading personal care products on the market contained many chemical ingredients that were potentially harmful to the body some of which had been banned from our food. Knowing that skin absorbs over 60 percent of what is placed on it, she wanted to create meaningful change through beauty solutions that worked better, and were better for you, than conventional products.
Karen assembled a team of scientists and industry leaders to pioneer organic technology within the beauty industry. A few years after the arrival of her second child, Juice Beauty was born, with the mission to bring clinically validated yet authentically organic beauty solutions to the world. Today, Juice Beauty, headquartered in a beautiful sustainable building in Northern California, offers antioxidant-rich and amazingly effective skin care, makeup, and hair care products that meet the most rigorous organic product regulations in the United States.
