ECO-LUXE BEAUTY: This Biotechnologist Created Skincare that's Good to the Earth and Great for Your Skin

We love great science-backed skincare.  But Luxe Botanics goes beyond.  This luxurious eco-friendly collection is a true manifestation of the intersection between science and nature.  Not surprising once you meet the brand’s founder and creator, Jené Roestorf.  Jené is a scientist…a biotechnologist to be exact.   And yes, we looked it up.  According to, biotechnologists “develop products from living systems.”  Color us impressed!  Jené is one highly intelligent beauty enthusiast.

Raised in South Africa and surrounded by the earth’s most distinct and diverse ecosystems, Jené developed a deep appreciation for nature’s healing abilities. After a decade of working on international clinical trials, Jene decided to leverage her scientific prowess, love of nature, and passion for socially conscious innovation to create the definitive “mindful skincare ritual.”

During her journey to launch, Jené conducted meticulous research on the most potent, skin-transforming active botanicals.  Her efforts led her to three multitasking elixirs – Marula nut oil from Kenya, Camu camu berry extract from Brazil, and Kigelia africana fruit extract from Malawi.  These botanicals are the cornerstone of the Luxe Botanics line of cleansers, serums, and moisturizers.



  • Hydrating Marula nut oil from Kenya: Nature’s Age Defying Overachiever
  • Brightening Camu camu berry from Brazil: Nature’s Brightening Powerhouse
  • Clarifying Kigelia africana fruit extract from Malawi: Nature’s Clarifying Soother

Sustainable sourcing is a critical component of product development for Luxe Botanics.  As such, Jené focuses on sourcing only the highest grade, nutrient dense, organic and wild-harvested core botanicals.  This is done through fair-trade alliances to support local communities while safeguarding the environment.



When describing her company’s ethics, Jené asserts “People are becoming increasingly educated about ingredients in their skin care. They are concerned with their origins, questioning the impact on health and the environment. We wanted to conceive an honest, mindful skincare ritual that women would love. Where there doesn’t have to be a choice between, efficacy, a socially conscious ethos, and protecting our natural resources.”

With Luxe Botanics, Jené has created a beautiful range of proprietary formulas that are ideal for wellness-conscious women who want their skin to thrive naturally and without compromising on results.  Luxe Botanics products are free from parabens, phthalates, sulphates, DEA, petrochemicals, formaldehydes, triclosan, phenoxyethanol or cosmetic fragrances.
