Externally: acts as a non-comedogenic, fast-absorbing yet long-lasting emollient that gently moisturizes, soothes, nourishes, and softens skin without leaving a greasy residue. It cleanses skin to prevent the growth of harmful bacteria and to promote the growth of new skin that is clear, cleansed, healthy, and supple. Due to a chemical composition that closely resembles the sebum found in human skin, jojoba oil is readily accepted and endured by the skin. jojoba oil can balance skin’s oil production to reduce the effects of acne by eliminating excess natural oils in the pores. By creating a moisturizing and protective barrier on the skin, it guards against the harsh effects of the natural elements. Used on nails, jojoba oil strengthens and hydrates the cuticles while preventing infections from forming on the nail beds.
Composition: Gadoleic Acid (Eicosenoic Acid), Erucic Acid, Oleic Acid, Palmitic Acid, Palmitoleic Acid, Stearic Acid, Behenic Acid, Vitamin E, and Vitamin B Complex.
Gadoleic Acid (Eicosenoic Acid) has emollient properties, non-comedogenic (does not block the skin’s pores), readily absorbed by the skin, balances the oil in the skin, making it less oily.Used in hair: jojoba oil can rejuvenate and promote its growth. It helps reduce oiliness on the scalp by regulating the production of sebum. Hair that is dry and frizzy can benefit from jojoba oil’s conditioning properties, as they make hair more manageable and free from knots. When applied to damp hair, jojoba oil coats the hair shaft in its liquid wax and prevents it from drying by sealing in the moisture. The anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties of jojoba oil eliminate dandruff and repair any damage such as breakage, leaving a cooling sensation on the scalp. This overall fortifying effect on hair encourages it to grow healthier faster, making it appear to be thicker and more lustrous.
