JOJOBA OIL as a ingredient for skincare products

There are as many ingredients in products as there are products in the world today. What I thought would be important over the next few posts would be to talk about the ingredients we use and why.  Many people  to this day forget to turn the jar around and read what the ingredient list is, and if you do, Its alomost imposible to understand what the words are. I’d like to break it down, make it a little more simple to understand. We never hide our ingredients, and we never will.

One of our super ingredients is JOJOBA OIL..pronounced hohoba. First off, we only use 100% pure pesticide-free golden jojoba oil. It is processed in accordance with organic standards. It is pesticide, fungicide, and herbicide-free. So, dang good stuff. So what is jojoba oil and why use it in skincare products? Great question.

Simply, jojoba is actually a liquid wax derived from a jojoba seed. (Simmondsia chinensis) The molecular structure of jojoba oil is the closest to our own skin’s sebum, which allows it to be easily absorbed and to restore the skins natural oil balance without clogging pores. jojoba oil is non-allergenic and can be used on the most sensitive skin. Because jojoba oil will penatrate the skin, it is able to helps  the skin retain moisture, keeping it supple and beautiful. Jojoba oil contains alpha, delta, and gamma tocopherols, all natural forms of the anti-oxidant, Vitamin E. Jojoba oil has other benifits that help skin, including antibacterial. anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-aging, anti-viral and free-radical fighting properties. Some have claimed that Jojoba oil is the best all around moisturizer and skin helper outer there is. We love it and use it in our Moisturizing body oil, our professional grade massage oil, our Facial moisturizer,  and our Hair finishing serum. You will always find that we use only the best ingredients, and make the finest skin, body, and haircare products available.

It’s Tough being a little guy

Why do we have a hard time believing in skincare products and companies today? Is it because many have lied to us over the years? Is it because the claims they make are shallow? What about all the man-made harmful chemicals? It would be easy to list many more problems and become part of the nay-sayers club. But you know what? Ojavan doesn’t want to be that way. We are a small company with one main goal, and that is to simply be honest, and forthright with what we sell and the products we carry.  There are a number of small honest companies out there with great products, but not a great deal of money to do the kind of advertising that they need to become profitable and to grow like they would like to. Ojavan is really in that same boat. Until people give us a chance, try the products, nothing happens. That’s why us “small” companies blog, Facebook, twitter, etc. Just hoping for that break to happen where we can be a great help to the people that want products that work, and are not harmful to the skin and body. This post is a big THUMBS UP to all the little guys and gals that are trying to make a difference out there. We salute you and are right there

A beautiful look of where our products come from

behind you. The world just celebrated the 7th billion  person being born. There are lots of people to talk to and share our stories with. Keep up the good work. Lets make this world a better and safer place to live, eat, raise a family, and just sit back and enjoy what the world gives us. Thanks, thanks to all who try just a little more.

Trace Minerals & Elements 2

As early as 480 BC Euripides in Iphigena in Tauris wrote, “The sea heals man’s illnesses”. Now flash forward a few thousand plus years. With all the research by scientists we now know that “sea” water or “inland sea” water contains the same trace minerals and elements that the human body has, only in a much more concentrated amount than that of the human body. Our bodies contain about 4% of these trace minerals and elements, But they activate such things as, building blocks of enzymes and hormones, equalizing pH, digestion, growth, and tissue regeneration, to name a few. They are indispensable for optimal functioning of a healthy body. With our body, and the visual part being the skin, researchers have found that when trace minerals and elements are absent, the epidermis loses its structure, or our skin begins to look wrinkled. and we say yech! Also, skin becomes fragile because of these deficiencies and offers an ideal terrain for the appearance of various disorders, like acne, psoriasis, eczema, dry skin and more. When trace minerals and elements are present, cohesion between cells is visible. Skin is strong and completely healthy, and many of the visual symptoms simply disappear. Tomorrow we discuss, how to re-infuse your skin with the trace minerals and elements we so need.
