Looking for a cruelty free, 100% natural face wash for your young person’s skin? While this is marketed exclusively for ages 12 to 24(ish), not only did my children test this face wash, but I also did too (and I’m not 24ish!)
JooMo was recently launched (in June 2012) in the UK. After reading about it, I knew that this was something that I wanted my children to try.
JooMo’s mission: “… to clear up the confusion so that consumers can make an informed judgement, start a new movement for natural cosmetics that will revolutionize and transform the marketplace.”
“The JooMo Brand will be trusted as safe, effective, ethical, environmental and healthy.”
JooMo believes that “most of the big name skin care brands that claim to be natural are in fact far from it, and there is an multi-billion dollar industry cover-up going on.” They don’t want you to be fooled anymore!
JooMo was created after one of the co-founders, Linda Russell, developed a skin allergy in 2008. After trying everything on the market, and being prescribed various topical and oral medications, she finally found relief in a home remedy. She and her partner, Co-Founder, Nick Wallen, delved into investigating skin conditions and “natural” skincare. They were shocked that there really nothing that existed that didn’t have synthetic ingredients—and especially so for those products that were aimed at young skin!
How did the product get its name?
Nick came up with ‘JooMo’ because Nick and Linda’s children are twins, and the French word for ‘twins’ is ‘jumeaux’. He also thought the word had a nice fruity sound relating to the strong scent.
JooMo 2 in 1 face wash and moisturiser for boys and girls:
What’s the difference between the boy and girl face washes? Nothing but the packaging; but it did, though, make my son and daughter happier to see that they had different tubes.
JooMo is for all skin types!

Our review: Growing up in this household, my children know that if they’re using a product, it’s cruelty free. So, they both said that they were glad to test JooMo, and happy that they liked it! My daughter felt her skin was smoother and did feel “silkier.” My son said he’s not going to feel his face. I did though, and his face was smooth! 🙂 We all liked that it was kept fresh in a tube, and felt the smell was good for both boys and girls! None of us have anything negative to write about the product! Very highly recommend!
