Earth's Best Body Care by Jason will be available in the United States in May and the United Kingdom in June.
Taking a leaf from Celestial Seasonings(R), Jason takes the power of red tea or rooibos known for its high levels of antioxidants and introduces a new skin care line, Red Elements, which also contains essential elements including copper, magnesium and zinc and peptide technology to fight the signs of aging and improve the appearance of skin texture. Red Elements features nine products-Gentle Gel Cleanser, Hydrating Lotion Cleanser, Exfoliating Scrub, Red Clay Masque, Calming Toner, Daily Moisturizing Lotion with SPF 15, Daily Moisturizing Creme with SPF 15, Hydrating Night Creme, and Eye Creme-to cleanse, tone, hydrate and protect all skin types.

While temptations come in all forms, Jason Lip Temptations moisturizing lip tints have just been introduced in three fun and spirited shades-Jewel, deep bronze shimmer, Icing, barely-there white shimmer, and Passion, rich raspberry shimmer. Lip Temptations sooth, condition and protect lips with shiny, sheer color and a hint of mint flavor. These all-natural moisturizing lip tints contain green tea and Vitamin E to hydrate lips and derive their color from natural minerals. Lip Temptations are available in stores now.
To increase protection from the sun's harmful rays, Jason extends Sunbrellas(R) family of year-round, all-natural sun protection and creates two new formulas-Facial Block SPF 20, a lightweight, daytime moisturizer that is perfect for year-round protection of delicate facial skin, and Chemical Free Sun Block SPF 30+ with natural botanicals, micronized titanium dixoxide and zinc oxide, natural minerals that deflect the sun's damaging rays. Sunbrellas new products will be available in April.
