Who is Dr. Jen?

Everyone knows me as Dr. Jen, a moniker I picked up when I had a storefront in Seattle for several years. I am not an MD, I have a PhD in biophysics and biochemistry, hence the ‘Dr’ moniker (tbh, it makes me squirmy to be called Dr outside of a conference or a job interview, but it has caught on, and I can’t stop it now). I did my undergraduate work in pathogenic microbiology. Since 2007, I have been involved in creating skincare and cosmetics products that are safe, but also that work. My focus is on safety and efficacy, not on ‘natural,’ ‘organic,’ or whatever other marketing terms for woo bullshit they’re using today. My products have been created and developed by me, and are made by me in my Beauty Lab in weird-ass Rio Rancho, NM.

These helpful infographics have been printed and are headed my way! I will have them available to you on the site as soon as they arrive. You will be able to get one of your choice free with your order, or if you want all five, they will cost money, but not more than a few dollars.

Been saying this since 2007. There is no one to ensure your products are safe. Recalls are voluntary, the FDA cannot force a company to recall asbestos-tainted makeup, as we saw when they found asbestos in children’s cosmetics sold at Claire’s and the company refused to pull the products. No company is required to test their ingredients or their products for safety. That is why we’ve seen bacterial contamination in Jergen’s lotion and benzene contamination in spray products, and asbestos in makeup. The personal care market in the US is a regulation-free wasteland full of increasingly harmful products. ... See MoreSee Less

Move to Europe people, here everything that is sold has to be tested and forced recalls are a thing.. Not just makeup but also food, aplliances literally everything that is sold.. We even have governmental bodies that go out by stuff and test it. Oh and consumers can flag things also, guess what? IT GETS TESTED!!!!

It’s the new Venetian Ceruse.

This reminds me that I need to go through my makeup >_>

Mind boggling and very scary. The cosmetic industry doesn't give a shit... we keep spending our money, ask no questions and the government quietly enables companies to use poison for profit. Thank you for your care and concern of us. I have learned so much from you since being 'introduced' to you, your philosophy and your commitment to making safer products. Keep up the great work and never let the bastards get you down!

I just got word from a client that her bottles of Psoriasis Scalp Treatment co-wash/conditioner arrived half-full (see photo). As they were full when I shipped them, I was a bit confused. I believe the issue is due to the fact that I have to have the conditioners continually mixing while they cool, or lumps form in the product. Even mixing it at the lowest speed on the Kitchen Aid apparently whips too much air into the product. Then, en route to you, pressure and temperature changes caused the air to escape. I am so embarassed right now. 🤦🏻‍♀️

If you received your scalp treatment, and it looked like this, PLEASE let me know, and I will get new ones out to you ASAP. I have to make a new batch today with no mixing, but I will make sure I make plenty for replacements. I cannot apologize enough, folks. I’m so sorry.

Your integrity is so much more important than a product fill issue! I hope more of the industry changes because of people like you!

Mistakes happen. You’re making it right. Be kind to you. 🙂 We are all grateful for the products you make!

You are realizing the problem, owning up to it, making it right, AND making it well known so that you're not relying solely on people reaching out to tell you. Pretty telling of you as a person and I'm here for it. I'm not even one of the people who purchased but I'm really impressed and wanted to say thank you!

It's so hot here that even our cold water tap is warm enough to make tea.

This is why we love you. Immediate accountability and problem solving

Dr Jen’s Beauty Lab I live about ten minutes from your lab. My 10 year old has been having some skin issues that's not acne. Would you ever be willing to let us swing by and see if you can make some product suggestions for her?

Yall, this product is pure GOLD!!!! Nothing else works on my scalp. I didn't notice this with my last shipment, but I also just immediately transferred it to my large pump bottle. I'll be ordering 2 new bottles soon though!!

I need to add this to my next order!

I was just looking for scalp treatments. What is the active ingredient in these?

I had this same issue with what I received today. I'll email you

Dr Jen’s Beauty Lab would this help someone who has chronic shingles on their scalp? My friend has been battling this for almost a year.

I can’t wait to get mine in!!

We are happy to try this all out for ya!

Would something like this work for seborrheic dermatitis?

What a splendid meme, I offer this one in return.

From my days in customer service... i give you Fuck You - a song. youtu.be/RAkSkMRwPYs

My daughter has an ex-husband that doesn’t seem to understand the meaning of ‘fuck off’. This is perfect!

This reminds me of the mother in law’s speech in Grace and Frankie! I literally stood up and cheered when she said it.

I love this for your page.

I'm using this when I get texts from political candidates that are terrible humans

Still just relishing this over here!

Getting this on a tshirt!t-shirt!! Dream the impossible dream🤣🤣

💀🤣💀🤣

Hippity hoppity your meme is now my property

I am making all the body butters today! I’m restocking Island Kiss, Veronica, fragrance free Skin Zen body butter, and scented and fragrance free Time Rewind body butters. I took this photo of the Time Rewind’s oil phases before melting cause they look like ice cream to me. Shit, maybe it’s lunchtime…. 🤣🤦🏻‍♀️ ... See MoreSee Less

YES PLEASE--my skin is so DRY from the hot weather--and water I drank---but I need your body lotions to repair damage--and NO--I didn't do the "sun" thing. I don't do that any longer--stopped in my late 20's 'cause I didn't wanna look all pruny and dried up at 60.

That Island Kiss is my favorite!

I thought it was icecream

Ooooooooooohhh is this where my order is stuck? 🤣😂

Do you have anything thats good for tinea versicolor?

Well now I want ice cream

#forbiddenicecream

Love the glimpses behind the curtain you sometimes treat us to!

If your skin type is dry, normal, or sensitive, try to avoid foaming cleansers. Foam cleansers are fairly drying, and if you dry out your skin, it will be unable to form the protective moisture barrier it needs to hold moisture and protect from environmental irritants and infection. Even if you dgaf about whether your skin is healthy, drying out your skin also ages it rapidly. Leave the foaming cleansers for folks with combination skin and oily skin. ❤️Skincare Mom ...

I wish there was a test to tell me what skin type I have. Even with your wonderful discriptions on your website, I'm still confused. Someone needs to come up with a test and sell it on Amazon

Changing to gentle, non-foaming cleansers has been the single best thing I've done for my skin.

I was wondering if you could tell me the shelf life of your sunscreen. On a typical day I spend such a small amount of time in the sun I don't really need to use it, so a bottle lasts forever. I recently ordered an 8oz bottle, but I'm kinda worried that a the rate I use it, at some point it'll become less effective. Thanks!

“But I watch those infomercials late at night, and they tell me that foaming cleansers are the best”  i is si tist

*sets down my foaming cleanser and walks away* erm what about gel to milk cleansers? I’ve been using one by body shop and my skin feels nicer. Please tell me I’m not ruining my skin with swapping

Switched to a hydrating, non-foaming cleanser on your advice, and my eczema-prone skin says, Thanks, Skincare Mom! No more breakouts, less redness and irritation. Aaah.

My skin has improved so much since I started using your products and listening to Skincare Mom! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Oh man I need to send my sensitive dry skin apology flowers 💐 😬😂

Good advice appreciate it.

I didn't know this. Thank you, Dr. Jen!

THANK YOU!!!!!
