STAR INGREDIENT

Jojoba Oil

What is it?

Liquid produced in the seed of the jojoba shrub,  Simmondsia chinensis,  native to southern Arizona, southern California and northwestern Mexico.

Main Benefits:

Anti-aging, healing, good for all skin types.

More Information:

Native Americans used jojoba oil to treat sores and wounds. Jojoba oil is the closest to human skin’s natural oil, making it easy to absorb and one of the few oils that can penetrate deeper layers of skin. It absorbs easily and seals it from moisture loss, thus being considered one of the best moisture-boosters. Non-comedogenic, non-irritating, and good for all skin types. It is great for both hair and skin, edible but not digestible.
