Jojoba Oil

What does it do?

Jojoba Oil is rich in fatty acids and a 'skin similar' ingredient, meaning its composition is very similar to the oils naturally produced in the skin. This means it's easily absorbed; in fact, it is one of the best skin absorbers. Research has proven that it can even reach the corneal layer, not to mention it won't clog your pores!

Where does it originate from?

Jojoba Oil is extracted from the seeds of the Jojoba shrub Simmondsia Chinensis.

When should I use it?

This ingredient can be used day and night.

What skin type is it best suited to?

Jojoba Oil is best suited to dry and stressed skin types due to its restorative benefits.

What does it work well with?

This ingredient works well with Ceramides, another 'skin similar' ingredient found naturally within the skin.

What else do I need to know?

Jojoba was originally introduced to the market as a replacement for sperm whale oil. It was then discovered to have even better properties, also saving the lives of whales and providing a vegan-friendly alternative.
