JOJOBA OIL as a ingredient for skincare products

There are as many ingredients in products as there are products in the world today. What I thought would be important over the next few posts would be to talk about the ingredients we use and why.  Many people  to this day forget to turn the jar around and read what the ingredient list is, and if you do, Its alomost imposible to understand what the words are. I’d like to break it down, make it a little more simple to understand. We never hide our ingredients, and we never will.

One of our super ingredients is JOJOBA OIL..pronounced hohoba. First off, we only use 100% pure pesticide-free golden jojoba oil. It is processed in accordance with organic standards. It is pesticide, fungicide, and herbicide-free. So, dang good stuff. So what is jojoba oil and why use it in skincare products? Great question.

Simply, jojoba is actually a liquid wax derived from a jojoba seed. (Simmondsia chinensis) The molecular structure of jojoba oil is the closest to our own skin’s sebum, which allows it to be easily absorbed and to restore the skins natural oil balance without clogging pores. jojoba oil is non-allergenic and can be used on the most sensitive skin. Because jojoba oil will penatrate the skin, it is able to helps  the skin retain moisture, keeping it supple and beautiful. Jojoba oil contains alpha, delta, and gamma tocopherols, all natural forms of the anti-oxidant, Vitamin E. Jojoba oil has other benifits that help skin, including antibacterial. anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-aging, anti-viral and free-radical fighting properties. Some have claimed that Jojoba oil is the best all around moisturizer and skin helper outer there is. We love it and use it in our Moisturizing body oil, our professional grade massage oil, our Facial moisturizer,  and our Hair finishing serum. You will always find that we use only the best ingredients, and make the finest skin, body, and haircare products available.
