The study followed up on almost 30,000 women over a 20-year period.
Joshua Tree Skin Care (JTree) offers a collection of organic lip balms, healing salves and face sticks designed for those who lead an active outdoor lifestyle. Originally established in a small town outside of Joshua Tree National Park, JTree's healing salve immediately gained a loyal following among the rock climbing community. As the word spread to cyclists, runners, hikers, skiers and gymnasts, JTree added additional items to keep their customers outside, on the go and doing what they love.
From its new home in Southeast Michigan, JTree's team of on-the-go climbers, cyclists, runners and skiers continues to research and develop potent herbal products that heal skin after tough workouts and protect it from the effects of harsh natural elements.
Joshua Tree Skin Care products are my go-to for on and off-water skin care. Whether I’m needing sun protection, pain relief, blister love, or a shower, I put some JTree on it, and I’m good to go!
This spring brought about new adventures as I patiently waited for my shoulder to heal. My adventures started in February with my first day on skis, pole-less. March came, and I was able to check a few places off my backcountry hit list: Mt. St. Helens, Mt. Washington and Broken Top.

New to me this year is pedal bike racing. More specifically racing of fun, squishy, super-rad mountain bikes in the Oregon Enduro Series. My first race took place on home-turf in Hood River, Oregon, followed by races in Bend, Oregon and Cold Creek, Washington. Turns out it’s pretty fun and generally awesome. So is the JTree that keeps me from getting ridiculously sunburnt at said races.
I’m off to Ashland this weekend for race #4 of the 5 race OES series… wish me luck!
