goe oil from jao ltd

Besides for my hands and feet, I’m not much of a body lotion person.

Chalk it up to laziness or just a really big love for oils, but my preference for liquid body moisturizers is well-known within the natural beauty blogging community.

Well, when Jao Ltd. sent me a sample of its nearing cult-status Goe Oil, I was puzzled by the packaging of this natural moisturizer that contains 28 plant, fruit and flower oils and butters. Why is an oil in a squeeze tube?!

Easy answer: It’s in a squeeze tube because Goe Oil is a solid oil.

Is your head spinning yet?

Goe Oil is a solid oil/balm because of its high concentration of the beloved jojoba oil (which is is actually a wax ester), jojoba butter and cocoa butter combined with other natural oils that deliver much-needed moisture to dry, thirsty skin.

Here’s the entire ingredients list:

Jojoba Butter, Sunflower Oil, Jojoba Oil, Monoi Tiare, Rice Bran Oil, Avocado Butter, Grape Seed Butter, Grape Seed Oil, Cocoa Butter, Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Rose Hip Oil, Soy Lecithin, Pumpkin Seed Butter, Mango Butter, Cupuacu Butter, Avocado Oil, Shea Butter, Hemp Seed Oil, Kukuinut Oil, Chamomile Oil, Beeswax, Calendula Oil, Essential Oils, Tocopherol, Vitamin E, Acetate, Rosemary Extract

If I were a crazy oil-eater, I’d be drooling all over this pure ingredients list.

While none of them are certified organic (bummer), this is an amazing combination of effective moisturizers and smell-good stuff that is perfect year-round.

I’m loving Goe Oil as a pre-bedtime treat on my hands, knees, elbows and feet, but also as a controlled hair oil treatment (using it just on the ends with no risk of OD’ing on oil thanks to the balmy consistency!).

I’m also looking forward to using Goe Oil as a post-sun hair treatment this summer. Not only will it help temporarily seal your split ends, Goe Oil is also a lovely styling aid that can keep flyaways at bay as well as add a little extra texture to saltwater-laced hair.

Besides the mega moisturizing properties of Goe Oil, I’m also in love with the faint tropical scent. It’s scented with Tahitian Monoi oil, which is made with gardenias and coconut oil, but isn’t overpowering to the scent-sensitive (like me).

While Goe Oil seems pretty pricey, because of its rich moisture, you don’t have to use much. The amount I swirled onto the plate in the pictures above was more than enough for my hands, arms and elbows as well as my shins, knees and feet. I used the bit of excess on my hands to smooth the ends of my hair and the flyaways near my face. So, as I say with most oils, a little goes a long way!
