Barbara Jacques leads her business down right path


— Leaders are defined as those who know how to take control, manage tasks, and provide effective guidance and direction. Barbara Jacques, founder and creative director of Jacq’s Organics, is the epitome of an outstanding leader. In fact, she was recently selected by Legacy Magazine as one of “South Florida’s 40 Under 40 Leaders of Today & Tomorrow for 2013.” Barbara Jacques is one South Florida entrepreneur who is leading her business down the right path!

“I am honored and thrilled to be selected among an elite group of young professionals as a leader of today and tomorrow,” Jacques shared. “As a young professional, I am proud of my accomplishments, but I will not rest on my laurels. I have my sights on continuing to lead my company to new heights.”

And successfully leading her company is exactly what she has been doing. She founded Jacq’s Organics out of a need for products that were safe, luxurious and skin oisturizing. A self-proclaimed herbal and beauty guru, she learned early that many, beauty, body and baby products contain harmful ingredients such as parabens, sulfates, silicones and phthalates to ensure shelf life. So, she set out to create products that are luxe, which multitask and are safe enough for the entire family to use.

Jacques defines Jacq’s Organics as a collection of skin nourishing products that harness the moisturizing, restorative and healing properties of 100-percent natural and organic ingredients— free of preservatives and synthetics. She shares that each product is formulated with skin loving Aloe Juice, moisturizing Shea Butter and soothing Essential Oils to nourish, heal and protect your skin from head to toe.

The company’s mission is to create products that promote healthy and preservative free alternatives that everyone in your family can love and enjoy. Jacq’s Organics products consist of an all-natural skin care line that feature handcrafted face, bath and body products. From cleansing products (soap bars) and toning products (face toners) to moisturizers (Botanical Shea creams) and gift sets offering the best of all worlds, Jacq’s Organics offers something for everyone. The company’s tagline is fittingly: Live. Love. Bathe.

“Our philosophy is to focus on simplistic and premium products that are moisturizing, healing, restoring, vitamin and antioxidant enriched to deliver a luxurious experience,” Jacques explains. “That’s why each and every product is artisanally crafted with aloe and exotic butters to provide direct benefit using pure high grade ethically sourced raw ingredients. We believe life is about enjoying the simple things and spending time with the ones you love.”

A native of Miami, Florida, Jacques attended the University of South Florida where she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications. With an uncanny drive to help and aide those in need, she has worked in development at a wellknown national not-for-profit and community-based organization. She resides in Fort Lauderdale, Florida with her husband and daughter, James and Arianna.
