JoyDion Body Polish: behind-the-scenes

Behind-the-scenes formulating

The team at JoyDion wanted to create a body polish that not only gently exfoliates the skin but also moisturise and brighten the skin leaving the skin impossibly smooth and soft after each shower!

With that in mind, the team went off and discussed with the chemist on what to include in the body polish and after a few trials and much research being done our team of chemists went on to combined a cocktail of high quality ingredients that were clinically proven to reduce strawberry leg bumps and provide a high hydration for the skin by including our key ingredients Peach Extract, Natural Oils from seeds and flowers and Vitamin C & E in JoyDion body polish! What a combo!

Prunus Persica Fruit & Flower Extract (A.K.A Peach Extract)

As you've already know, JoyDion body polish contains peach extract that helps deliver the skin with whitening and anti-aging properties by tighten, plump and lift the skin and reducing dark spot

As its name suggests, peach extract is a concentrated form of peach or prunus persica, a soft and juicy stone fruit native to the region of Northwest China. This extract boasts a long list of skin-benefitting nutrients and antioxidants, which makes it an indispensable ingredient in natural skincare!

Peach extract is an excellent source of B complex vitamins, vitamin A and C, and lycopene that makes it beneficial to the skin. 

Here are some of the benefits of peach extract for your skin.

  • Peach is a rich source of moisture, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
  • It moisturises dry skin and gets you rid of dry, rough or flaky skin patches.
  • This fruit is a perfect choice for dehydrated skin – it hydrates it and makes it plump and supple again.
  • You can also use peach skincare products if you have oily skin, since peach deep-hydrates the skin without making it oily.
  • Peach helps repair and regenerate skin tissue and protects the skin against external influences.
  • It is often a part of anti-aging cosmetics because of its ability to tighten the skin and reduce wrinkles and fine lines.
  • Also, peach benefits your skin by fading dark spots, acne marks, blemishes and other skin imperfections.
  • It can help you recover and replenish your skin after sun exposure.
  • Peach extract makes your skin vibrant and glowing. They can help you improve your complexion and get that clear, youthful, dewy looking skin.
  • Peach is suitable for all skin types, even for sensitive and irritated skin.

Natural Oils 

JoyDion body polish also includes natural oils from seeds and flowers to give your skin the best natural glow by deeply moisturise and nourish your skin and to ensure you will have a smooth and soft skin after each exfoliate.


Simmondsia Chinensis Seed Oil (Jojoba Oil)

Many common hair and skin care products contain jojoba oil, but even on its own, jojoba oil is a powerhouse for your clean beauty routine. It's rich in beauty-boosting ingredients like vitamin E, vitamin B complex, copper, and zinc. Many oils are comedogenic, meaning they clog your pores and may not be good for those with acne-prone skin. But, because of the chemical structure, jojoba oil is different and does not clog pores. There are countless benefits of jojoba oil, here are some of the key benefits:

  • Natural hydrator for both hair and skin.
  • Anti-inflammatory. 
  • Soothe sunburns
  • Naturally improves fine lines. 
  • Fade stretch marks & scars


Butyrospermum Parkii Fruit Fat (Shea Butter)

As an emollient and moisturiser, shea butter helps repair the skin and is an effective remedy for dark spots, wrinkles, stretch marks and sunburn. Its healing properties help treat minor burns, small wounds and insect bites. 

Shea butter contains arachidic acid, linoleic acid, linolenic acid, oleic acid, palmitic acid and stearic acid of which stearic and oleic acids are the highest. Oleic oil has moisturizing properties and is used as an ingredient in many skin care products (especially in butter cream products).

Shea Butter penetrates deep into skin to help restore elasticity. It absorbs quickly without leaving greasy residue like petroleum, beeswax or mineral oil based products.


Liminanthes Alba Seed Oil (Meadowfoam Seed Oil)

Meadowfoam seed oil comes from a beautiful, tiny white flowering plant that flourishes in the wet, grassy regions.

Meadowfoam seed oil doesn't just sit on the outside of the skin, the way some heavier moisturizers do. Some of the fatty acids in the oil can be absorbed into the lipids of the skin's outer layer, repairing that barrier so that moisture doesn't evaporate as quickly. The oil is also similar in texture to sebum, making it good protection from the elements. The result is softer, plumper skin.

Meadowfoam seed oil also contains vitamin E, a natural antioxidant, which helps protect the skin against damage from the sun and pollution. Researchers are beginning to study the way other compounds in the oil might protect skin cells from the sun's harmful UVB rays. 


Helianthus Annus Seed Oil (Sunflower Seed Oil)

Helianthus annuus seed oil comes from compressing the seeds of a plant most commonly known as a sunflower.  In skincare, it is mainly used as an emollient agent in cosmetic products.  This is made possible by its high concentrations of oils (i.e. oleic acid, linoleic acid) and Vitamin E.  Skin benefits of sunflower oil include: improving skin hydration and providing antioxidant protection.

The linoleic acid present in sunflower oil works to reinforce the skin barrier. This helps to reduce moisture loss from the skin surface, thus improving overall hydration. Additionally, the Vitamin E in sunflower seed oil also provides antioxidant advantages that allow it to neutralize free-radicals that are present in the environment.
