Hoba – 100 % USDA Organic Cold Pressed Tunisian Jojoba Oil.
Hoba is derived from a seed of a jojoba plant. The oil itself is edible; however, it is not recommended for human consumption, as it does not provide any nutritional value (no calories are associated with the consumption). If you ingest jojoba oil, it is just going to go through your intestines and make its way out. So, even though it is not going to hurt you, don’t eat it.
Hoba is nearly identical to natural oils in our skin and hair. It gets quickly and easily absorbed by our skin. Hoba is wonderful at controlling excessive skin oil production and ‘fooling’ skin into believing it has produced enough oil, so breakouts are minimized when you use it. You can use your jojoba oil as skin moisturizer, hair conditioning treatment, make up remover, or massage oil.
Most common uses for Hoba include:
- Eye and face makeup remover
- Facial cleanser and moisturizer
- Body moisturizer
- Bath oil
- Massage oil or massage carrier oil
- Dry hands and feet treatment
- Dry, frizzy, unmanageable hair treatment
- Lip conditioner
- Cuticle repair
- Conditioner after or during shaving
Hoba does not contain triglycerides like vegetable oils, so is very stable and can be used for many years if stored properly. It does not become rancid from sun or light exposure or time.
We do recommend to keep your Hoba in a cool, dry spot away from water (that means do not store it in the shower). Fridge is ok, but room temperature is all it needs.
If you store Hoba in the fridge, it can solidify, similarly to other oils. Just thaw in room temperature if you prefer a liquid version when applying it to your skin.
