Benjamins Introduces Luxury Hair Products

If there's one takeaway from this pandemic it's the importance of self-care. Luxury is the ability to open one's eyes to the dawn of a new day, to breathe and to get out of bed. Things we once took for granted we now realise to be life's imperative. We've all grown up with PA Benjamins from olive oil to castor oil but how appreciative have we been? Not enough, alas!

How many, for example, are aware that in the 1870s, Percival Austin Benjamins, a young Jamaican, parlayed his keen interest in commonly used Jamaican practices into the manufacturing of quality locally produced products that can compete with imported international products?

With a new year has come Benjamins' foray into the beauty industry. This is therefore an opportunity to proudly support authentic Jamaican products. Tuesday Style Dryer (TSD) spotlights the Benjamins Cosmetics Jamaican Black Castor Oil (JBCO) line, made with authentic JBCO and other natural oils for healthy hair.
