What is HobaCare Jojoba for? We are so glad you asked…Our pure, unrefined First-Press quality jojoba extract is a wonderful product for so many applications. *Blue text is linked to blog posts or article with more in depth information on topic listed.*
First and foremost we recommend using for your skin! HobaCare makes a wonderful addition to or replacement as a moisturizer for your face and whole body. Try just a couple of drops on dry skin or after splashing face with water, massage into your skin and allow to absorb. Our mantra is always a little goes a long way. Jojoba is uniquely compatible with the skin, so it will absorb into instead of laying on top of the skin if you experiment with small amounts.
If you are concerned if HobaCare is right for your skin type – the answer is yes! Pure jojoba extract is non-allergenic, non-comedogenic (won’t clog your pores) and is the closest plant ingredient to the sebum we all produce in our sebaceous glands. If you have dry skin, jojoba will help to replenish moisture levels and if you have oily skin, jojoba will help balance oil production in your pores. As for sensitive skin, well, jojoba is probably going to be your best friend.
Since HobaCare Jojoba helps keep dry skin at bay – use head to toe, like you would a body lotion! While you’re at it, if you have a couple extra seconds, give your muscles a little massage along the way. And speaking of, if you go to a massage therapist, consider taking them our brochure! We are well loved as a massage product in spas, salons and private practices – LMTs greatly appreciate that our jojoba does not go rancid, will not stain natural fiber sheets and most importantly is safe for each client’s skin. And clients love that they don’t feel greasy or sticky after their massage – simply pampered! We are even sought out by medical massage clinics and oncology estheticians as a safe product for health challenged skin.
If you care for a baby or child – reach for your jojoba! HobaCare is perfect for the most sensitive of skin and helps to soothe cradle cap, diaper rash, etc. It makes a lovely choice to give that little one a gentle, soothing infant massage, free of any irritating synthetic fragrance or mystery chemical ingredients.
That said, some of us want a scent experience with our skincare products! In that case, jojoba is your best choice as an aromatherapy carrier for essential oils or base to make an herbal infusion with. Not only that, you can use jojoba in a myriad of DIY skincare projects, like salves, soaps, lip balms, salt scrubs, beard oils and more!
But you don’t need to add anything fancy to jojoba in order to use as a beard oil. HobaCare works as an effective beard conditioner on its own – just massage into your beard to tame and add healthy shine and conditioning. The same goes for using for your hair. HobaCare works particularly well for thicker, dry, color treated, curly and/or afro textured hair as a conditioner. If you have very fine hair, jojoba may be too heavy feeling. Some use as a leave in conditioner to add shine and definition to curls, others put a couple of drops in their palm of shampoo and rinse out. For a rejuvenating scalp treatment, massage into your scalp, wrap your head up in a towel and give it some time to absorb before washing out. If you are shaving or waxing, jojoba can be used before and/or after to prevent and soothe razor burn and irritation.
Need something safe around the eyes? HobaCare is gentle and effective for make-up removal , including for mascara. Put a few drops of jojoba onto a cotton pad or face cloth and gently hold on your eyelids/lashes for a few seconds to soak in/warm up and wipe away that day’s pretty paint. You can cleanse as usual and return to your jojoba as your moisturizer. Or if you prefer the method of oil cleansing, use jojoba! It may not be an oil, but acts as well as, if not better than using oils for such a purpose.
That’s quite a lot of uses for one’s skin and hair. Did you know jojoba is also used as a wood conditioner? Yes, it makes for a non-toxic conditioner for wooden cutting boards, childrens wooden toys, furniture and garden tools. With your tools, jojoba can be applied to metal as well for rust prevention. Have some leather boots, garden gloves or a handbag that needs new life? HobaCare can help you there, too. In any of these applications, start on a small corner to see how it may darken the shade of the material you’re using it on.
How about our furry friends? Maybe your dog has a hot spot or your cat has irritated skin – jojoba is non-toxic to pets (and humans) and can be applied to skin in need. We even have businesses purchase our jojoba as an ingredient in their coat conditioners for show livestock.
