In 2011 Dr. Janik suffered acute acne that put her on the quest of trial and error through conventional medicine and cosmetics. Once she realized that there was no help for her there, she started to intensively study chemistry and ingredients of all products she has been using till then. With horror she realized that her everyday essentials, in spite of being high priced products, were full of harmful chemicals such as parabens, petroleum products, mineral oils, SLS etc.
She immediately switched to natural cosmetics and that is when the healing process started.Within one year time, her skin became healed, with much more youthful and illuminating look she never had before. Her life turned dramatically around from that moment on. She studied naturopathy in Swiss Institute and promised to help other people through natural cosmetics and everyday essentials to heal their skin and bodies, to prevent diseases and live higher quality of life that we all deserve.
For health to show inside out, it needs to start from outside in - this became her life motto. Thus J. K Luxury European Products with slogan Healthy Luxury was born.
