Jojoba Oil

 Jojoba oil comes from the beans of a shrub like plant. It is bright and golden in color. Non-greasy natural antioxidant, wonderful for our skin because it has absorption properties like our skin’s own sebum which means it not only moisturizes, but absorbs faster than other oils. And, it's suitable for all skin types! Jojoba is full of powerful nutrients such as Vitamin E and B, as well as antioxidants and minerals like chromium, copper, and zinc, which all nourish and protect skin.

 

 Jojoba is the only plant to store liquid wax in its seeds. Sharing the same molecular structure as the natural oils found in our own skin, making it more receptive to receive and absorbe vital nutrients and antioxidants, thus restoring balance, and helping your skin behave as it was always designed to do.

Because Jojoba oil is very similar to human skin oils, its use can trick the skin into thinking it has produced enough oil and thus balance oil production, without promoting acne or other skin problems. Jojoba also naturally deters microbes, helping to prevent the growth of bacteria on skin.
As we age the wax ester content in our skin begins to diminish resulting in dry skin and eventually fine lines. Jojoba is the only known plant source of wax esters that is able to replenish these lost esters, as our skin recognises jojoba as its own and allows this golden liquid to penetrate deeper into the skin, where it is able to nourish and regenerate skin cells.
This is one of my favorite oil!
