Our Philosophy

 
 

We at Jays Precious Cargo strive to embody the epitome of 'precious ' when it comes to our products. We believe that the body is a precious commodity and design our products to nurture and nourish such a jewel.  Our mission is to create skincare products that promote, cultivate, and encourage healthy glowing skin by pampering it with skin loving, natural ingredients. 

 

Jays' Story:

My name is Jay and I am the founder and C.E.O. of JPC.  Jays Precious Cargo was inspired in 2006, ignited by a constant let down of products. I am a bonafide, body product enthusiast. “I love sensual, sweet scented products, and especially those that make me feel soft and beautiful similar to leaving a high end spa.  I was disappointed in the products available to me via the market.  My experience was that there were lots of products at my disposal, but they either smelled horrible or were pretty and prim with nothing to offer. That’s when I set out to make my own body products. I began by researching the type products I loved the most and comparing the ingredients. In the midst of my research I realized that most of the products on the market contained a lot of gunk that did absolutely nothing for the skin and if I were to make my own products they might as well contribute to the health of my skin in addition to feel good on my skin. By the time I started perfecting my recipes, I noticed that I had enough product leftover and decided to attend some of the local craft fairs in my area to get rid of it. That is when the light went off in my head and I came to the realization that I can actually make a living by selling my products to others because there was surely a demand for them.

 

My Inspiration:

I have played around with mixing lotions and scents since I was a little girl. Of course at the time I had no idea what I was doing but I knew that I wanted to achieve a soft feel and a delicious smell, and that is what my products are based off of today, feeling soft, and smelling good, along with the most important aspect of nurturing the skin, all without using harsh chemicals. I love creating products that will love on the skin.  Most of my products have a base of Shea Butter and Mango Butter. I love working with these because they serve as an all around all purpose cream. I whip most of my products because I love the texture of it. I love the way my skin drinks it up, and how it makes me feel totally sexy! Every woman should be made to feel like this. So, what started when I was a little girl flourished into what I call Jays Precious Cargo today. 

 

My goal is to distribute my products worldwide because I feel as though a woman hasn't truly felt like a woman until she has used a JPC product. After all, the body is a precious commodity; nourish it, love it!
