Hydration is key

Hydration is key

Here at The Jojoba Company, health and safety is our number one priority and as sanitiser becomes a handbag necessity, it’s more important than ever to take care of our skin.

The constant use of alcohol-based hand gels and soaps can strip our hands of protective natural oils leaving our skin irritated, itchy and feeling dry. And whilst it’s important to keep germs at bay, excessive hand washing can exacerbate skin conditions leading to frail nails and cracked hands which can become a breeding ground of infection.  

It is recommended you wash your hands before eating and after using the bathroom, with the average person scrubbing a minimum 11 times a day. However, with the popularity of hand sanitiser and in today’s current health crisis, the average person is now cleaning their hands 50 times a day! So it is becoming increasingly important to moisturise your hands after washing to keep your hands hydrated, preventing cracks and infection.  

 

Next time you wash your hands use a few drops of jojoba to restore your skin's moisture content. Jojoba is the closest botanical match to our skin's natural oil, so our skin recognises jojoba as its own allowing all its natural vitamins to penetrate deep beneath the skins surface. Naturally high in Vitamins A, D and E, jojoba is rich in antioxidants and nutrients allowing your skin to replenish from within whilst feeling silky smooth. Containing omegas 6 and 9, our Australian jojoba is all natural and free from any nasties. Proven to hold moisture for up to 8 hours, Australian jojoba isn’t an oil but a wax ester so it won’t leave any slimy residue on your hands, allowing you to move freely. With incredible antibacterial properties jojoba is the ultimate side-by-side duo with your hand sanitiser. As well as being hypoallergenic and dermatologist approved, our Australian Jojoba is the perfect product for those with sensitive skin. 

Our jojoba is cold pressed, extra virgin and filtered 14 times to produce the premium golden liquid you see on shelves. Australian owned and made, The Jojoba Company is cruelty free and vegan friendly, so put the trust in our hands.
