Jojoba for Oncology Skincare

The Original Jojoba Company’s interview with Geralyn O’Brien

Today we have the honor of introducing one of our many valued customers, Geralyn O’Brien. Beyond being a customer, she is a comrade in the effort to educate the world about using safe ingredients on our skin.

While the terms “natural” and “organic” are much more widely used and sought after these days, many people are still in the dark about what really goes into their skincare products. It takes time to learn what to look for and what to look out for when reading labels.

Jojoba and the Oncology Patient

We hear from clients often about the wonderful benefits of jojoba, one area that we hear more and more about is its benefits for oncology patients. Our jojoba is 100%, we do not use chemicals to extract more jojoba from the seed or to remove anything from the jojoba. Our jojoba is a first press quality, we also do a light pressing, which produces less jojoba, but a higher quality jojoba. The result is a very pure form of jojoba, most of our customers can tell a difference between our jojoba and other jojoba.

Every one of your claims are true - the lack of staining and smell, the affinity with the skin, and my clients love that they don't get up from the table feeling like greased pigs (my words). Of course, as a massage therapist, none of that would matter if the grip and glide weren't perfect... and they are.

Sara Garvin, LMT

Thank you! I just wanted to say that I am just getting into making my own cosmetics and had been searching high and low for the most responsibly produced jojoba. This is very good quality at a fair price...

I've ordered jojoba before and your jojoba is leaps and bounds above any other. I could immediately feel the difference in the way it looks, smells & feels on my skin. The first thought in my head was that this is truly an elegant product. I'm glad I purchased it.

Robyne Lopez

Your product is amazing and I couldn't be happier with it. It is high quality which is what I strive for in my own practice.

Julie Paus

I continue to be impressed with your company and the high standards that it promotes. Your responsiveness to questions, shipping and customer service is top notch. Thank you for everything.

Heather Piper

After 35 radiation treatments I recommended your product to my friend for his burns. Like magic it is soothing and healing the area. Wonderful jojoba. Thank you.

Jayne Johnson

I just want to let you know how much I love your Jojoba. I have been using it for about 10 years now, after seeing it at a massage convention. One year I decided to go cheaper and found my sheets smelling rancid and after throwing them out decided I'd never do that again.

Katie Dickinson

The results were instant! My hair not only had sheen, but totally eliminated the friz!
I threw away all of the other goopey hair gels.

Terri Swain

We have been using Hobacare for nearly two years now and have found our family's skin is amazing looking - which is truly a feat considering the eczema and dry skin that so plagues us!

Heather B.

I started out trying the jojoba on an older leather day planner that I have. It is in very good condition, so I didn't think I would see much of a difference. Boy, was I wrong! I didn't realize how dull it was until I used the jojoba on it.
