At Graydon Skincare, our mission is to give you good skin days, every day. And we’re not just talking about the skin on your face! As the body’s largest organ, your skin should be nourished from head to toe. That’s why, in addition to our full line of facial products, we’ve carefully formulated a shampoo, conditioner and body lotion.
Our Matcha Mint Shampoo, Matcha Mint Hair Smoothie and All Over Face + Body Lotion are all formulated with the same deeply nourishing oil: jojoba. Let’s discuss the properties that make this ingredient beneficial to the scalp, hair and skin.
Benefits of jojoba oil
Emollient and occlusive: Emollients help to soften and hydrate while occlusives add a protective layer to help retain moisture. These two properties keep your skin soft and supple and your hair soft and shiny.
Anti-inflammatory: The anti-inflammatory properties in jojoba oil can help to calm redness and itching associated with some skin and scalp conditions that involve inflammation, including psoriasis, eczema and seborrheic dermatitis.
Antioxidant: Antioxidants help protect against free-radical damage that can lead to inflammation and premature signs of aging.
Antibacterial: The antibacterial properties in jojoba oil may help to fight bacteria that cause breakouts and dandruff.
One of the best things about jojoba oil is that it’s very similar to our natural sebum. That means it is easily absorbed and shouldn’t cause your skin or scalp to produce excessive sebum that can lead to clogged pores and greasy hair.
Other ingredients In addition to jojoba oil, Matcha Mint Shampoo and Matcha Mint Hair Smoothie are formulated with matcha green tea, which also boasts powerful antioxidant, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Plus, the vanilla peppermint aroma makes for a truly delightful experience.
And let’s not forget about All Over Face + Body Lotion. Along with jojoba oil, we included shea butter, which is rich in fatty acids that nourish the skin and leave it feeling soft and smooth. This light-weight lotion uplifts the senses with the aromas of lavender, rosemary and blood orange.
A nourishing routine
To bring out the best in your scalp and hair, try a double cleanse with Matcha Mint Shampoo. Focus the first cleanse on massaging the scalp with a small amount of shampoo. This helps to remove buildup and increase blood flow to the scalp. For the second cleanse, apply a small amount of Matcha Mint Shampoo to the length of the hair.
After shampooing, apply Matcha Mint Hair Smoothie to the bottom two thirds of the hair. Let sit for a few minutes before rinsing. For a deep conditioning treatment, apply Matcha Mint Hair Smoothie as an overnight hair mask.
Don’t stop there! Keep your skin soft and smooth by applying All Over Face + Body Lotion as soon as you get out of the shower or bath. You can also use this fast-absorbing lotion as a hand cream throughout the day.
Finding hair and body care products that work for you might take some time, but it’s worth the effort. Look for ingredients like jojoba oil that offer multiple benefits to help give you good skin days, every day!
