Our Story

​S.J.L Essentials is a multi-variety brand offering Organic and Sustainable , apparel, accessories, and skin care for kids. SJL Essentials was inspired by the founder’s love for her nephew and passion for wanting a clean and sustainable environment for a healthier world around us.

We are on a mission to help change the Fashion Industry and Ecosystem for upcoming generations. Fast fashion is not the way to go! Have you ever bought something, worn it once and never again? Do you ever buy things because at the time it may seem you can get a lot for your money because the garments are so cheap? Do you ever ask yourself what the person on the other side making the garment is getting paid, or the work conditions they are working in?  Most of the garments from fast fashion are filled with chemicals in the fabric that is being disposed leaving significant amount of harmful chemicals for the land to absorb.​ 

While only 3% of the world’s arable land is used by growing cotton, cotton farming is responsible for 24% of insecticides and 11% of pesticides making cotton the number one production consumer of pesticides. The dust from the pesticides can cause illness within us, can damage the air quality in other environments, and affects water quality.. and when we damage water quality we damage the ecosystem, plants, animals, and ourselves. 

We are on a journey investing in quality and long lasting healthier goods. We want garments to last you for years and to have the quality that can be passed down for generations continuously in good conditions. We bring to you the most natural cosmetics for kids that don't include any harmful chemicals, toxins, and have not been tested on animals.

 

We support garment workers & other employee rights for fair wages and racial equality. We support fashion, essential products, and all around sustainable living habits. An ecosystem where the least amount of chemicals and other pollutants exist within fabrics, soil, and other wildlife is a happy life! ​

All of our products are unisex. We want every race and gender to feel welcomed to our boutique. 

SJL Essentials is also committed to giving back to different charities that focus on different environmental need. See our Philanthropy page for more information.
