As hand sanitizers become the latest accessory on every office desk, every home and in every handbag, it's more important than ever to look after our skin. Whilst alcohol-based gels, soaps and sanitizers are an excellent way to keep germs at bay, they can strip our hands of protective natural oils leaving our skin irritated, itchy and feeling dry. 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 sanitizer and in today’s current health crisis, the average person is now cleaning their hands 50 times a day! So, it’s becoming increasingly important to moisturize 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 recognizes 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 sanitizer. 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.
