The most important reason to use jojoba, as opposed to other massage mediums is that it’s a 100% non-toxic product. In fact, it’s recommended for oncology massage because cancer patients are so sensitive (see Geralyn O’Brien’s article for the Integrative Cancer Review). In addition to being non-toxic, the second best reason to use jojoba is because clients LOVE it.

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.
Our customers tell us that they can tell a difference between our jojoba and other brands of jojoba. What makes ours better? For the past 20 years, our focus has always been on quality. We continually work with our growers and processors to make sure our jojoba meets our exacting standards. When you try our jojoba you will notice a difference, it goes on smoothly, has only a slightly nutty smell, and it absorbs quickly into the skin leaving no tacky residue.
Jojoba’s non staining quality is very important to our clients. We receive many comments on how important this quality is. Massage therapists love that it doesn’t stain the sheets and doesn’t cause a rancid smell after a year. Others love that it doesn’t stain their clothing if they accidentally spill it or put too much on.
When used properly, our jojoba will stay in the skin. If it is coming out on linens and clothing, you are very likely using too much. Try reducing the amount of jojoba being used to reduce skin of jojoba transferring to fabric.
Our jojoba launders out of natural fabrics with the use of hot water and a good detergent. For synthetic and dyed fabrics we sometimes use a pre-wash. If you have combined oils, lotions, creams or essential oils with our jojoba, they could the cause stains. Also, and especially for massage therapists, if you applied lotion or cream to the skin prior to the massage, those substances could cause staining.
We have been getting a few calls from worried customers about cloudy or solidified jojoba. This is perfectly normal and there is no reason for concern. As the temperature drops jojoba will become cloudy or become solid.
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.
I just wanted to email to say that I'm so in love with Jojoba.
I like doing business with companies that care, and I feel that you do.
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.
The Jojoba esters is an excellent bodywork tool (multiple treatment modalities) as well as at home for my skin. I've even used it to mix with essential oils and given it as a gift.
The very best thing about jojoba is that is does not become rancid and aids in the integrity of essential oils.
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.
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!
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 have been using your product for years and I love it! It is the only product I use for the face and body!
