S4OM Partners Program

Featured Partner


We are excited to have The Original Jojoba Company collaborate with S4OM as an affiliate partner in 2022.

Since 1994 The Original Jojoba Company has specialized in producing the highest quality pure jojoba on the market. Our HobaCare Jojoba comes from a seed, not a nut and is naturally non-allergenic, completely shelf stable and non-staining to natural fiber sheets.

Oncology patients and professionals turn to HobaCare Jojoba for a clean, safe and soothing moisturizer and massage medium. A single ingredient product, our jojoba is first-press, meaning we press our jojoba seeds to maximize quality as opposed to quantity. The liquid wax esters that comprise jojoba extract (often confused as an oil) are molecularly almost identical to the sebum in our skin which makes it uniquely compatible with all skin types – including, most especially, fragile, inflamed and health challenged skin.

Oncology trained LMTs, estheticians and their clients enjoy the simplicity and versatility HobaCare Jojoba offers – one product as a moisturizer for face and body, an effective massage medium, gentle makeup remover, hair and scalp conditioner and an ideal aromatherapy carrier.

Some of our LMTs most repeated praise is the ability to use so little product during their massage, their grip is not compromised for glide, no ruined cotton sheets, and no expiration date, although the number one compliment is their ability to use HobaCare safely on any client’s skin, since it’s non-allergenic.
