Meet our BEAUTIFUL model, Annya!
Annya is the daughter of Founder Nancy Bogart. She is part of a dedicated home office team comprised of individuals with special needs, who play an essential role in creating our products and filling orders. Chances are if you order a Joyful Jordan Box, Annya, with her ray of sunshine personality, joyfully packaged it just for you.
Annya was born in Russia and adopted at age 4.5 when many children had early education and experiences. When Annya entered school, it was quickly discovered she was different than her brother Ben who is 2 weeks younger than she is. Annya had a learning disability and ADHA that would follow her through her school career and working career.
Annya’s environment, genetics, and lack of nutrition and resources did not slow her down. She has always wanted to be like other kids and worked hard. She was the chatty kid in school and was the hit of the special education classrooms, where she was surrounded by kids with mental and physical disabilities. She treated everyone like they were her best friend and never shied away from helping them be the best they could be.
When Annya was little she was visiting with a little boy with Downs Syndrome and his mother shared she loved how Annya treated him like he was any other kid. Annya promptly replied, what is Downs Syndrom? She said how do you know?
In high school, Annya decided she wanted to be a para-professional and help children. She as the classroom helper, and bus helper slowly realized the unofficial dream to help others with disabilities by reading, laughing, and helping “teens be teens” as she likes to say.
Annya went to Camp Barnabus a camp for teens to adults with special needs as a camper one year and quickly decided she was not the camper but a camp counselor role called a missionary partner designed to help a camper one-on-one even with feeding tubes and blind campers. Annya has served 7 years now as a partner.
Annya was accepted to a special program at Missouri State University Bear Power program for young adults with disabilities to get her certification in special education and actually live on campus and go to classes with other college students. Much to her parent’s hesitation and true Annya style, she said she was ready. Annya graduated with flying colors in May 2022.
Annya works at Jordan Essentials with the 25% adult special abilities workforce as a team member and inspiration. She volunteers on the weekend with her boyfriend at their church kids program.
Annya is an example of how special education helps people of all abilities bloom into amazing parts of our society and is the inspiration for Jordan Essentials hiring people with different abilities creating an adaptive workplace environment and working with agencies to place people with special needs.
Annya is truly a joyful light to all who meet her and a spark of inspiration that all who have a dream can reach.
Boooo…the facts about breast cancer are not fun. The topic hits close to home for many of us. When we stop for a moment and look around, we see our loved ones—our best friends, sisters, mothers, grandmothers, aunts, daughters, and even our daughters’ friends. The statistics are sobering, with one in eight women in the United States projected to develop breast cancer in her lifetime. Breast cancer is personal, and it’s time to get personal about it.
During October, a month dedicated to breast cancer awareness, we encourage you to get to know your “Boo Bees.” Knowing the Booo not-so-fun facts about Breast Cancer can help us Bee active in taking preventative steps
One of the first steps towards breast cancer prevention is being informed about what you put both into and onto your body. While we all understand the importance of maintaining a healthy diet for overall well-being, it’s equally crucial to scrutinize the products we apply to our skin daily. One simple switch you can make this month is to eliminate harmful ingredients from your daily deodorant routine.
Numerous studies have revealed that certain ingredients like aluminum, parabens, and sulfates may pose risks in the deodorants and antiperspirants we use.
Aluminum, commonly found in many popular deodorants and antiperspirants, works by clogging pores to block sweat, along with the associated odor. However, this unnatural process interrupts the body’s natural ability to sweat and detoxify.
Parabens, included as preservatives, are effective at preventing fungal and bacterial growth in products. Unfortunately, they’ve also been known to mimic estrogen in the body’s cells.
Sulfates, salts used to remove oil and dirt while reducing moisture, can cause skin irritation and allergic reactions due to their drying properties.
The concerning aspect of these ingredients is that they can be absorbed through the skin, potentially increasing health risks, including kidney and liver issues, Alzheimer’s disease, and breast cancer in both men and women.
Jordan Essentials’ deodorants offer a solution by freeing you from these toxins and allowing your body to function as it should—without the unpleasant odor. Our deodorants utilize plant-based science to effectively control odor, minimize wetness, leave your skin smelling clean and fresh, and apply smoothly.
When transitioning to a natural deodorant, you may need to detoxify your underarms for the best results:
Breast cancer awareness starts with knowing your “Boo Bees” and taking proactive steps to reduce your risk. By choosing natural, toxin-free products like Jordan Essentials’ deodorants, you’re not only protecting yourself but also supporting your body’s natural functions. Empower yourself and your loved ones with knowledge and action this October and beyond.
During the month of October, Jordan Essentials is committed to doing our part. A portion of the proceeds from every purchase of our Black Raspberry Vanilla Deodorant will be used to gift pampering products to women in our Jordan Community who are battling all types of cancer now or who underwent treatment in 2023.
Help us make in a difference this October.
Unveiling the Beauty Benefits of Activated Charcoal in Skincare: A Closer Look at Jordan Essentials’ Clean Offerings
In the ever-evolving world of skincare, new ingredients and innovations emerge regularly, but some age-old remedies continue to stand the test of time. One such ingredient that has taken the beauty industry by storm is activated charcoal. Known for its exceptional detoxifying properties, activated charcoal has become a star player in skincare products. In this blog post, we’ll delve into the remarkable benefits of using activated charcoal in skincare, focusing on two standout offerings from Jordan Essentials: the

Activated Charcoal Glycerin Soap with Tea Tree Essential Oil
Gentle Cleansing and Exfoliation
Jordan Essentials’ Clean Sweep Activated Charcoal Glycerin Soap combines the purifying prowess of activated charcoal with the soothing qualities of Tea Tree Essential Oil. Activated charcoal’s fine particles bind to impurities, toxins, and excess oils, gently lifting them away from the skin’s surface. This deep-cleansing action helps to prevent clogged pores and breakouts, making it an ideal choice for those with oily or acne-prone skin.
Tea Tree Essential Oil, known for its natural antiseptic properties, complements charcoal’s cleansing action by promoting clear and healthy skin. This combination creates a powerhouse cleanser that detoxifies without stripping the skin of its essential moisture.
Balancing Oil Production
One of the most remarkable benefits of activated charcoal is its ability to balance oil production. It works in harmony with the skin’s natural processes to absorb excess oil without causing dryness. This makes the Clean Sweep Activated Charcoal Glycerin Soap a versatile option for all skin types, providing a balanced, fresh, and revitalized complexion.
Activated Charcoal Detoxifying Face Mask
Deep Purification and Exfoliation
Jordan Essentials’ Pore Party Activated Charcoal Detoxifying Face Mask takes skincare to the next level with its potent blend of activated charcoal and other skin-loving ingredients. This mask provides a more intensive treatment, drawing out deep-seated impurities and environmental pollutants from the skin’s pores.
In addition to activated charcoal, this mask contains moisturizing ingredients like Aloe, Sunflower Seed Oil, Green Tea Extract, and Seaweed. These ingredients work in synergy to slough away dead skin cells, leaving behind a smoother, brighter, and more refined complexion.
Revitalizing and Refreshing
A unique feature of the Pore Party Activated Charcoal Detoxifying Face Mask is its ability to invigorate and refresh tired skin. The mask’s detoxifying action not only purifies the skin but also rejuvenates it, resulting in a radiant and revitalized appearance. This makes it an excellent addition to your self-care routine, especially when you need a quick pick-me-up.
