Jai Ven Skin is a husband and wife team passionate about living a non-toxic, organic lifestyle close to nature. Dr. Aguilar has over 20 years of experience in the organic skin care industry formulating products for his professional line DNA Skin. His background in biochemistry and homeopathy while practicing as an alternative medicine doctor is what inspired Jai Ven Skin’s clean and effective products, and his Native American ancestry inspired some of the product names. Being a mom to a two year old, Gillian wants to nourish her son and family with organic whole foods and limit any exposure to toxic products or chemicals. She believes that Jai Ven Skin’s products fulfill this need while also improving the health of the body’s largest contiguous organ, the skin. She’s especially passionate about the reef-safe sun protection products being a surfer, paddler, and ocean swimmer.
The company was born and forged from the melting pot of cultures of two iconic places in California, with the name “Jai Ven” being short for the fusion of OJAI and VENICE. Home to the creators of Jai Ven Skin, Ojai is known for its diverse spirituality and native influences of the Chumash Native Americans. The small town is a healing and teaching mecca with minimalist chic style, and the beauty of the land calls people to shed the urban grind, and nourish their inner space.
Venice, with its who’s-who ‘A’ listers, trend setting style, thriving urban scene, and legendary creatives have molded much of what has become 'hip'. The early days of Venice gave the world “Muscle Beach”, “Roller Boogie”, Charlie Chaplin, and the skate and surf culture of Southern California.
Jai Ven Skin and our slogan "Organic, Native, Urban" was created for the conscious consumer. The ingredients are plant-based, certified organic, and free of artificial chemicals and synthetic preservatives. The unique part about Jai Ven Skin is the addition of Homeopathy to the formulas.
Homeopathy is a 200-plus year old system of medicine originating in Germany. This modality has proven to be effective and gentle, safe for children, infants, and the environment. Homeopathy utilizes diluted substances originating from plants, minerals, and the ocean, with the preparations made by focusing on the energetic and subtle frequencies. This delivers a revolutionary and groundbreaking product that is safe and effective for our health, skin, and our delicate planet ecosystems.
Jai Ven Skin is also focused on giving back to the community, and donates $1 of every purchase to the Global Resource Alliance, a non-profit organization headquartered in Ojai. GRA promotes natural, cost-effective and sustainable solutions to the challenges of hunger, poverty, disease and environmental degradation in rural East Africa. Their programs include direct assistance to vulnerable populations like AIDS orphans and the elderly, educational grants, tree planting, permaculture and herbal medicine. They believe that empowering women and local communities to address pressing social, economic and environmental challenges according to their own vision and their own creative potential is the key to lasting solutions. The goal of all their work is greater hope, joy and abundance for the communities they serve – and most of all love. Learn more about the Global Resource Alliance HERE.
We also RECYCLE our packaging in order to create a sustainable shopping experience and move away from single-use packaging. Just reuse the box sent to your house, add the return label, and send it back to us! We are all earth’s natives, many of us living in urban communities. We all share an inner calling to become rooted and to create in a mindful way, but also to mix and be seen in a social display of style and individuality.
