Hoba [ho-buh] - 100% EURO Organic Jojoba Plant Wax (aka jojoba oil)
Hoba or jojoba oil has been a steady beauty staple in Europe for a long time. Why? It is simple, it is hypoallergenic, it does not clog pores (is non comedogenic) and it works on ANY skin, body and hair type.
Using Hoba, which is a carrier oil as your natural makeup cleanser is a perfect way to keep your skin healthy and smooth. And for acne-prone skin, Hoba is an incredible natural oil cleanser to help normalize skin oil production.
When I say Katari Hoba | the purest jojoba oil has no comparison, your only way to believe it is to try it.
Hoba is incredibly stable naturally. Why? Because it is not an actual oil. It is closer in chemical composition to a wax (a plant wax) and it stays perfectly good for many years. Temperature, light and other factors that typically affect an oil, do not do anything to virtually indestructible Hoba. We suggest though using Hoba within 2-3 years, so that you always have the freshest beauty miracle in your repertoire.
Katari Hoba is not an ordinary oil. We source it to each seed and work with the artisans in the Mediterranean who mastered the ancient and modern oil cold-pressing techniques and pride themselves on the most incredible quality. Our Hoba is 100% single-ingredient, pure and unrefined.
Daily Regimen with Katari Jojoba is very simple and feels clean and light -
Ingredients: 100% Pure Vapor Distilled Tunisian Rose Water (rose petals + water)
Skin lift in one spray - that is Roseau. I am personally obsessed with it and don't leave for any trips long or short without a little bottle of this incredible toner. It is light, naturally fragrant, it has just the essence of rose petals distilled to most decadent perfection in its ingredient list.
It is perfect to set makeup, to shrink pores, to lift and tone skin and make you feel like a million bucks. The ladies who make Katari Roseau have done it for countless generations using the same ancient tedious process of vapor distillation. This is means there is no alcohol, no oil and only pure, naturally fragrant rose water drawn from the petals of freshly collected roses produced just one week in a year. It does not compare to anything else in how light and good it feels.
We recommend using your rose water within two years but it is really stable for a very very long time and it does not get affected by time, just like fine perfume.
What is Argil?
When it comes to natural ways to clear skin and get rid of breakouts, adult or teenage acne, this green clay will surprise you. If you are tired of expensive and complex, there are easy ways to get rid of breakouts and easy diy acne treatments with Argil. This is why Argil is a superior choice for home made acne treatment:
1. Acne proliferates in environment that is not pH neutral. Cleansing skin with a pH-neutral, (7.24) Argil tonic or masque will stop bacteria growth
2. Trying to dry out acne with alcohol-based recipes or recipes that strip natural oils will lead to more oil production; and therefore, to more breakouts. Argil does not strip natural oils, yet it draws out excess oils, which is exactly what you need with acne-prone, oily skin.
3. To get rid of acne naturally without harsh chemicals that might affect your hormones or other systems, choose a product that is harmless and not systemic. Argil does not absorb into blood stream (which makes it not systemic). It only adsorbs (pulls) toxins, excess oils and impurities to the surface.
Argil green clay works well on all skin types. Read more on our Argil page. Nothing needs to be added except for warm water and the easiest is to use it for 5-7 minutes under steam while in the shower, rinsing it off last and following up with a moisturizer (Hoba is perfect for it).
Argil can be used as often as needed. If redness occurs, it is a normal (though rare) reaction and means that Argil is doing its job by improving blood circulation and pulling blood to the surface. It is NOT an allergic reaction.
It is indestructible.
Storing dry unmixed Argil (green clay) is very easy. It is not affected by light or temperature. It just loves sitting in an air-tight container, preferably glass (just the way you get it from us).
Argil will absorb smells and moisture out of the air if left uncapped.
Please discard used and unused mixed clay mixture. If it is used, it already absorbed all kinds of impurities and toxins. And if it is not used, it is rather hard storing mixed batches, as Argil will dry out too quickly. It is much faster and easier to mix 1 tiny spoon of Argil powder fresh for each masque or spot application when needed.
Ingredients: 100% Rare Atlas Mountains Green Clay
Argil is naturally pH-neutral - 7.24, hypoallergenic, and non-comedogenic
It took us over a decade to trace a clay with this chemical composition. It is not a typical clay. Naturally pH-neutral and not reactive even for most sensitive skin, Katari Argil has extreme pulling power for drawing out impurities, black heads and clearing skin of excess oils and acne. Its mineral composition is packed with minerals that work on a cellular level to help regenerate skin and balance it out whether it is dry or oily.
Argil contains Iron, a mineral instrumental for blood supply to skin cells, which means that using metal accessories to mix Argil masques is not advisable, as metals will react to each other and will change chemistry of the masque. Please use Katari non-metal sustainable utensils or other non-metal utensils to avoid oxidation.
Ingredients: 100% Pure Vapor Distilled Geranium Water (geranium plant + water)
All hydrosols (flower waters) are made different. Katari Geran is a single-ingredient moisturizing flower water made out of Geranium stems and leaves. It is not a mixture of geranium oil, water and alcohol, but a small batch vapor distilled artisanal flower water.
The process of distillation is taking the essence of geranium plants under high temperature steam and distills it drop by drop into a decadent naturally fragrant water without adding any other fragrance or oils. Is one of a kind moisturizer and anti-inflammatory, redness reducing hydrosol.
It is easy and effective to use on all skin types and is best to spray directly on the skin area that needs some care (after waxing, after peels, sunburn, any procedures that make skin angry and irritated, reducing inflammation related to hormonal imbalances and just simply to keep it moisturized. You cannot misuse or overuse it. Spray Geran directly onto skin for better penetration.
We use the purest water and the purest geranium plants grown in the Tunisian North and create the most concentrated flower hydrolat out there. Geranium water is naturally stable and can be used for many years, just as any fine perfume (produced in the same way Geran is).
