No one likes being cooped up all winter long, and the same goes for your clients’ feet. Jojoba Pedi Scrubs can help nail techs give clients the summer-ready feet they’ve been waiting for.
Jojoba (pronounced ho-HO-ba) is grown for the liquid wax (commonly called jojoba oil) in its seeds. There are about 1,700 seeds in a pound and 17 lbs. of jojoba seeds are required to produce one gallon of oil. The color and shape of jojoba seeds are reminiscent of coffee beans, however jojoba seeds are far larger, and their sizes and shapes are not uniform. Jojoba wax (called oil) makes up 50% of the seed’s dry weight. The chemical structure of jojoba oil is different from that of other vegetable oils. It is made of fatty acids as well as esters composed entirely of straight chain alcohols. The extracted oil is relatively pure, non-toxic, biodegradable, and resistant to rancidity.
Jojoba oil is a natural mimic of the oil secreted by human skin so it can be used to protect and lubricate skin and hair. It is soothing, combats many skin problems, and protects against premature aging caused by exposure to UV radiation.
Using scrubs like La Palm’s Jojoba Pedi Scrubs could be a great way to differentiate your pedicures from other salons while caring for clients’ feet. Jojoba is a natural solution to heal skin on the feet and make them feel summery soft. With eight scents to choose from, you can amplify your pedicure menu for the ultimate summer service. Each scrub cleanses, exfoliates, and conditions, removing unwanted dead skin and reducing callused skin.
