Our JOJOBA OIL is extracted from the beans of Simmondsia Chinensis. From its bean, a golden, odourless, nonallergic wax is produced that is known as Jojoba oil. Jojoba oil is very similar in composition to the human natural skin oils, therefore it is an excellent moisturizer and it is ideal for all skin types. Jojoba oil helps to heal irritated skin conditions such as psoriasis or any form of dermatisis and helps control acne and oily scalps. It contains myristic acid which has anti-inflammatory actions. Since it is very similar to the skin’s own oils, it is quickly absorbed, which makes it ideal for elegant cosmetic formulations.
