HobaCare vs. HobaCare Organic

Jojoba Product images - Organic vs. Pesticide FreeThe Original Jojoba Company provides first-press, unrefined, golden, pesticide-free jojoba (sometimes refered to as jojoba oil, although is chemically different than an oil). All of our jojoba has been processed in accordance with organic standards. One cannot tell the difference between the non-organic jojoba and the organic jojoba even after applying them to the skin.

We cannot certify the non-organic HobaCare Jojoba and HobaCare Baby as organic for one of two reasons:

  1. The seeds harvested for the jojoba are from fields that are in transition from pesticide-free to organic, or
  2. The seeds are from fields that were farmed conventionally, and the growers used commercial fertilizers -- NOT certified organic fertilizers -- on the plants that produce the jojoba seeds pressed for our pesticide-free jojoba. The use of conventional fertilizers makes organic certification impossible.

Our Certified 100% HobaCare Organic Jojoba and HobaCare Baby Organic have been grown and processed in accordance with the United States Department of Agriculture's National Organic Program (USDA NOP). Our certifier is the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association (MOFGA), whom the USDA NOP authorizes as certifiers.

The glide is perfect and I have yet to find another product that can rival its positive effects on the skin. And as a therapist who does mostly medical work, it is a wonderful thing to have found a product that none of my clients are allergic to.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I have had the pleasure of working with your excellent Jojoba for 11 years as a massage therapist and also for personal use. I have occasionally tried other highly regarded massage oils and lotions over the years but always come back to your product. It is simply the best!

Janet Walker

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.

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.

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

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

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 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

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 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.
