DIY Hand Sanitizer with Jojoba

From what we have heard from the CDC, regular handwashing with soap and water is really your best bet during our management of Covid-19. We greatly encourage everyone to keep it up! And remember, to prevent or repair your hands from drying and chapping from all the soap, keep a bottle of HobaCare Jojoba by your sink. Just a couple of drops on the backs of your hands after washing really helps to combat the effects of our current, necessary routines.

Gentle Ear Cleaning with Jojoba

We’ve all heard that we should never stick anything smaller than our fingers in our ears, and yet many of us persist in using cotton swabs to clean our ears. For many of us this doesn’t cause any issues, but for some it does. There are a wide variety of ways to clear the wax and buildup out of our ears: peroxide, warm oil, etc. It’s probably not a big surprise that jojoba works very well for this as well.

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.

Jojoba, the Perfect Makeup Remover

If you’re looking to minimize toxic ingredients in your skincare and streamline the products you use, consider using jojoba as your makeup remover. In fact, jojoba is such an effective makeup remover that the Blue Man Group uses it. One our customers tells us that her eyelashes are longer and fuller now that she is using jojoba as her eye makeup remover. Pure jojoba has many fantastic benefits for the skin, which make it the ultimate makeup remover.

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.

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

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...

Laurie

I want you to know I appreciate your wonderful customer service. There is never a delay in the shipment of my order and I very much appreciate it.

Shirley

I don't know what I did before I started using your product.
It is by far the finest skin care product I have ever used.

Nanci L. Maloney

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?

Annie/Arianna Mitchell, LMP

I love your stuff. I've been using it for years and refuse to use anything else. I've tried them all. Your jojoba, is by far, the best available.

Bella Donna

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.

Dee

After more than 20 years of practice I have used numerous products. The Jojoba Oil is superior to any and all.

Elizabeth Berks

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!
