Oil Summary: Jojoba Golden Oil is extracted from the beans of the Jojoba plant, which grows in the deserts of South America. It is a light textured liquid wax that absorbs easily and penetrates deeply to nourish the skin with Vitamins E, A, B1, B2, and B6, as well as other minerals. Due to its SPF of 5, Jojoba can also be used as a natural sunscreen. Suitable for all skin types, Jojoba has excellent moisturizing and emollient properties that profoundly nurture both the skin and hair. It is also said to have natural anti-inflammatory agents and can be used to fade off wrinkles and delay signs of aging. Like Sweet Almond, Jojoba oil exhibits a long shelf life and is, therefore, suitable for bulk buying and prolonged usage. When the two oils are combined, the resulting blend has a chemical make-up that resembles the skin’s natural oil; Sebum and can help to re-balance dry and oily skin types.
