I consider myself product-obsessed to be sure, so seeing a glistening silver tube by a brand I had never seen before on a recent trip, you can bet I tried it.
Goe Oil, by Jao Brand, is a semi-solid oil, made from 28 plant-derived oils and butters. It melts as you rub it in your hands, which I didn’t realize, and took too much and got it all over me. So, long story short, I left the boutique, but found myself enveloped with the most amazing scent all day long. I literally smelled like Hawaiian flowers and my skin felt amazing.
The creator of Jao Brand, Gale Mayron, developed her skin care line with her chemist father. “I formulated this with my father saying, ‘Dad I want a semi-solid oil I can travel with that will melt when I rub it together,’ she writes on her website, jaobrand.com. “My father always said this was one of the most difficult projects he’d ever worked on. Intricate formulation indeed. Nobody would be crazy enough to combine 28 different oils, waxes, and butters!”
I ordered it from Amazon when I got home and use it on the days when lotion just doesn’t cut it.
