Just the Goods

Vendor Biography

Since 2009, Just the Goods has acted on the belief that every day indulgences shouldn’t cost the earth or our health. Granted Champion status by the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, Just the Goods demonstrates that it is both possible and affordable to look and feel great without unnecessary exposure to petrochemicals, parabens, sulfates, phthalates, and artificial fragrances, dyes, and flavours.  All products are handcrafted and feature vegan plant and mineral based ingredients… “just the goods” and nothing else.

petal, leaf, root. by Just the Goods embodies the mostly highly requested features received during Just the Goods’ first 9 years of operation.

All petal, leaf, root. by Just the Goods products are:

    • made with 100% certified organic plant and mineral-based ingredients
    • vegan and certified cruelty-free by the Leaping Bunny Program
    • free from artificial preservatives, colours, and/or fragrances
    • free from gluten, GMOs, nuts, palm, petrochemicals, and soy
    • offered in glass bottles/jars* and packed in boxes printed on post-consumerpaper with plant-based inks using a waterless process

Additionally, products in this line are made with low or no essential oils. In the case of products for normal/sensitive skin, special care has been taken to select botanical ingredients that are generally considered safe for use during most pregnancies and nursing. Most products for dry skin, and some products for oily skin may also be suitable. In any case, it is best to check with your individual health care providers in case of any personal circumstances which may deem otherwise.

Beyond an emphasis on certified organic ingredients, a key distinction between petal, leaf, root. by Just the Goods and other Just the Goods products is that these items have been designed with the interests of retail distribution in mind. That is, by embracing a traditional wholesale/retail distribution method, petal, leaf, root. by Just the Goods may become more widely available at brick and mortar shops in other cities worldwide. So, for those of you asking if handmade products by Just the Goods can be found at a store near you, these are items you are invited to request from your local vendor.

petal, leaf, root. by Just the Goods products will be sold at retail prices via justthegoods.net, and this conventional markup structure will make it possible to offer a few other widely requested features such as “free shipping” with minimum purchase incentives and occassional coupon codes.

Just the Goods acknowledges with full clarity that such incentives are available specifically because petal, leaf, root. products will be sold in a traditional retail manner, whereas the primary line will remain committed to reduced profit margins so applicable shipping rates will continue to be calculated at true market price promoting transparency and accessibility in products available direct from the handmaker… that is, me at justthegoods.net.

The range for normal/sensitive skin launched Oct 2018 features facial cleansing grains, toner, facial steam, face mask, and serum. The range for oily skin launched August 2019 and features facial cleansing grains, toner, face mask, and serum. A facial steam has not been included since Just the Goods already offers one for oily/combination skin which is largely organic available here. The range for dry skin launched January 2020 with the addition of a cleansing gel for dry skin, which is also suitable for those with normal/sensitive skin. Relatedly, the facial steam for normal/sensitive skin is very well suited for those with dry skin.

Thank you for your support during Just the Goods’ early years – I’m very excited about this parallel project and look forward to making it available for retail distribution as soon as I have time to look into it 😉
