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.
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!
I have been using your product for years and I love it! It is the only product I use for the face and body!
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.
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.
I’ve used other jojoba extracts and this one is by far superior.
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.
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.
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?
