What is Jojoba?
Jojoba has been used for centuries and became popular in the cosmetic industry when it was discovered as a natural alternative to whale oil. Jojoba oil is sustainable, cruelty-free and vegan. Jojoba is native to SouthWestern North America, and is part of the botanical heritage of the USA.
Jojoba oil is commonly found in skincare, haircare, and cosmetic products.
Jojoba Oil and Benefits
Jojoba oil is not an oil! It's a liquid wax, making it exceptional for providing skin with long term moisture and protection, perfect for the summer season. It's most known for its superior stability, versatility and skin compatibility.
Jojoba oil's chemical composition is similar to that found naturally in our skin's sebum so is a perfect candidate for maintaining healthy, moisturized skin.
Jojoba oil's composition also includes a lot of anti-oxidants that contribute to helping protect skin.
