About the Oil: This is the highest grade certified organic, cold‑pressed, unrefined Jojoba oil. It is golden sunlit color and practically odorless. It is considered a premium carrier oil due to its high stability and lightweight texture and is also ideal as a carrier for natural perfumes. Jojoba oil is a universal skin moisturizer, ideal for all skin types with great healing and penetrating properties. Due to its fatty acid profile it closely resembles our skin's own sebum. It also makes a great cleanser for skin, hair, and scalp because it helps remove excess oils. Use this non‑greasy, non‑comedogenic wax for full body moisturizing, facial cleansing and makeup removal, a moisturizing facial oil, scalp and hair repair, massage oil, cuticle and nail treatment, or as a shaving cream.
ABOUT THE PLANT
Jojoba (pronounced Ho-ho-ba) oil is technically a liquid wax ester extracted from the seeds of Simondsia chinensis, a desert shrub that can survive hundreds of years at temperatures as high as 122 degrees and grows in the dry, arid regions of southwestern United States.
ABOUT THE OIL
Because Jojoba is actually a liquid plant wax and not a typical vegetable oil, it has molecular qualities and is not likely to deteriorate. This gives Jojoba oil superior shelf stability to any other carrier oils. A small amount (10%) added to blends can extend their shelf life.
As with all carrier oils, keep your bottle out of direct sunlight and heat.
Jojoba oil was used for centuries by the Apache Indians and Indians of Mexico as a scalp tonic.
