[INQ. NO. 1706C06] Tangerines from the unpolluted island of Jeju in Korea have a long history since prehistoric times. During the Goryeo Dynasty, Jeju tangerines were presented to royal families as precious tributes. The peels of Jeju tangerines are used as an ingredient for tea, thanks to its Oriental medicinal benefits. Essential oil and tangerine extracts made from fresh tangerines of Jeju are rich in vitamin helping keep the skin transparent, hydrated, and smooth. In recent years, the demand for citrus juice has increased. Its flesh is concentrated and sold, but citrus peels that remain inevitably are used only in part while most of them are dumped into the trash.
Since its founding in Dec. 2014, Eco-on, a Korean manufacturer of natural ingredient cosmetics, has come up with the idea of recycling discarded citrus peels, 50,000 tons of which are disposed by marine dumping each year causing environmental pollution. It started as nothing more than a sincere intention to reduce marine pollution, recycle resources, and produce good products using the safest natural materials for the human body.
J’farm Citrus produced by Eco-on specializes in cosmetics made with natural ingredients from the pristine nature of Jeju Island. Products consist of 500ml hair shampoo, hair conditioner, body lotion, body washes, each with a 50ml mini type model for travel. The company has also launched a new highly moisturizing multi-use balm stick made from 100% organic shea butter added with natural citrus oils that provide nutrients to the skin vulnerable to dry atmosphere.
