Goe Oil


If the hippy pungent scent of a freshly rolled doobie lights your fire, then you will be tickled by Goe Oil by Jao ($30) that laces true hemp oil amidst its 28 plant fruit and flower oils and butters. We can’t say it smells like the real thing because it HAS the real thing. Rosehip and Meadowfoam oils lighten the body oil while the denser kukuinut oil unabashedly sashays into the heart of the treatment. Eco-chic lovelies will covet this rare oil-in-a-tube formulation as the treatment contains no parabens, sulphates, PEG's propylene glycol, TEA, DEA, phthalates, mineral oil, silicones or synthetic fragrance, unlike some of its popular chemically-laden counterparts.

Clever in composition, hemp oil stands out for its ability to prevent moisture loss, as it penetrates our cells and lubricates the surface between them. The essential omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids are what comprise the abundant hemp oil, which we know are effective in preventing premature skin aging, while maintaining a healthy moisture balance. In addition to moisturizing the skin, hemp oil also relieves skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis and eczema. Hemp is also the only plant oil that is rich in vitamin D, which is essential for calcium absorption to help achieve soft, smooth and hydrated skin. The body oil liquefies at room temperature, so keep in your fridge for a thicker lotion-like texture. Goe Oil was our experiment with a new ingredient - one that we'd like to see further research on.

Smile knowing it’s the legal way to get your skin high on shine.
