Jojoba - Carrier Oil

Simmondsia chinensis

Jojoba Oil is cold pressed from the seeds of the Simmondsia chinensis shrub, native to the Sonoran Desert of Arizona, Northern Mexico and arid California. Although referred to as an oil, Jojoba is actually a liquid plant wax with remarkably similar properties to our skin's own sebum - the oily secretions our skin produces to protect itself. With its bright golden color and a mild odor, Jojoba Oil has shelf life and molecular stability considerably higher than most other oils (20+ years).

Rich in beauty-boosting vitamins A, E and D, plus antioxidants and fatty acids, Jojoba Oil is able to penetrate deeply, reaching below the top layer of skin for maximum nourishment. As Jojoba Oil is so closely matched to the skin's natural oil, it is quickly absorbed, helps to hold moisture in the skin without leaving a greasy residue.

Extraction Method - Cold Pressed
Parts Used - Seeds

Other Names - Goat Nut, Deer Nut, Pignut, Wild Hazel, Quinine Nut, Coffeeberry

Therapeutic & Skincare

Jojoba Oil has wonderful nourishing, regenerative and moisturising properties, hence it is helps to soothe sensitive and inflamed skin and is a good treatment for dry and mature skin. Its natural antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties are perfect for healing acne-prone skin as well as other bacterial skin conditions.

Jojoba Oil is also high in Vitamin E which supports skin elasticity and helps to reduce the appearance of ageing. Jojoba Oil is one of the most popular carrier oil, commonly used in creams, lotions, ointments, butters and balms, as well as soaps, bath oils and massage oils. Being a light and easy oil to work with makes it very suitable as a base for body and facial oils.

Hair Care

Because Jojoba Oil absorbs deep into the skin, it works well as a scalp and hair moisturizer, hydrating hair follicles from the inside out. Its natural emollient properties help seal moisture into dry, split-ends and also works well for treating dry scalp and dandruff.
