Jennifer Lopez, 51, says the main product used in her skin line is something that can be found in a kitchen cabinet: ‘It’s nature’s secret ingredient’
Jennifer Lopez has launched a new skin care line for her personal beauty brand JLo Beauty.
And on Wednesday the 51-year-old age-defying Hustlers star told People what exactly is inside the jars.
Turns out, the World Of Dance host relied heavily on a product that can be found in most kitchen cabinets: olive oil.
Getting innovative: Jennifer Lopez’s new beauty line uses olive oil, as announced in an interview with People on Wednesday
The singer-turned-businesswoman stated that the inclusion of the ingredient in her JLo Beauty line was inspired by her upbringing, as her family members would frequently use olive oil as a natural skin supplement.
‘They would use it on their skin and on their body, their face and their hair to get like a glow and to highly hydrate and moisturize,’ said the mother to twins Max and Emme.
The songwriter first considered the idea of launching a beauty line after decades of fielding questions about how she takes care of her youthful skin.
After putting her mind to it, Lopez underwent a painstaking process of back-and-forth with the chemists working on the products, and after more than 100 rounds of testing, the development team settled on a final product.
Taking notes: The singer stated that she learned about the oil’s applicability through her relatives, stating ‘they would use it on their skin and on their body’

In speaking about the perfectionism that went into the development of the line, the singer stated: ‘I think I drove everybody a little bit crazy because I didn’t want to put my name on anything that didn’t work or wasn’t exactly what I wanted it to be.’
The products set to launch include a gel cream cleanser, facial mask, and various creams for certain parts of the body, among others.
Lopez also noted that the resources in her beauty products are intended to combat the combined effects of aging and weathering on skin, and that an additional dietary supplement will be included with the line.
‘One of the things I learned is that inflammation and dehydration cause aging…The ingredients [of the supplement] help fight oxidative stress. I want it to be a big part of people’s skincare routines.’

She also made clear that the products are intended for people from all age groups to utilize, regardless of skin condition; this sentiment is especially clear in the brand’s mantra, ‘beauty has no expiration date.’
Lopez happily noted that the products are being well-received by both her daughter Emme, 12, and her mother Guadalupe, 74, the latter of whom has taken a liking to the line’s skin cream.
‘My mom steals my cream. She comes to my house and steals it. I’m like, “Just ask me for it. I’ll give it to you!”‘
The brand is set to launch on January 1, and will be distributed through Amazon, Sephora, and the brand’s own website.
