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.

I did a lot of research on what to use on my skin and then where to get it. I know I made the right choice.

There are some Maine products that serve us well through the sweltering days of August to the frigid days of January and every day in between. Jojoba is one of them!

Jann Minzy

I have been using your product for years and I love it! It is the only product I use for the face and body!

Debra Peters

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

After few days of using it, I must admit that the product has proved itself beyond my expectations! My 4 year old son was suffering from a red bottom due to frequent wetting. Since I've used the Jojoba, his skin is bright, clean, and with no signs of red. I'm very grateful to you.

Orit Vainer

I’ve used other jojoba extracts and this one is by far superior.

Jacob

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 bought your product... and my husband thought it was just another product I had to have - now he uses it all the time and reminded me when we're running low. So we both think it's great. Thanks.

Lois Akner Fields

I love how it absorbs into the skin and leaves it silky smooth, what a fantastic carrier it is for essential oils, that it doesn't go rancid, so my sheets remain sweet-smelling and that the (jojoba) is so stable with an incredible shelf-life. What's not to love?
