Let's get down to business

EDEN BodyWorks was driven from Jasmine’s own need for a natural hair care solution. Devastated by the harsh chemical products, 11 year-old Jasmine sought to develop unique products that were all natural and really worked. Unlike most products that are cosmetic in nature, her mission was to develop hair care products that actually deliver their promises. At the age of 13, after attending a NFTE BizCamp, Jasmine officially launched EDEN BodyWorks.

Under the leadership of this dynamic and driven young person, EDEN BodyWorks has experienced tremendous growth with a rapidly expanding product and customer base. Her company, a certified women owned business, manufactures and distributes all natural hair and body care products around the world. After 13 years, Jasmine continues to work on expanding her all natural hair and skin care products lines to meet the needs of her diverse, multicultural customer base. Her products are available at TargetWal-Mart, CVS, Walgreens, , Kroger, HEB, and Sally Beauty Supply Store just to name a few.
