Ingredient Insight ... Jojoba Oil

Jojoba Oil (Simmondsia Chinensis Seed Oil), a fundamental ingredient in many beauty and skincare products, is not actually an oil but a liquid wax! Extracted from the seeds of the Jojoba bush (the only plant to store liquid wax) to create a golden oil-like product with a neutral scent and a mountain of skin benefits.

First discovered in Arizona and California in the 17th century as a herbal remedy for wound healing, it was not until the 1960's that Jojoba Oil was used in cosmetic products and later studied in depth for its healing properties. It is predominantly grown in the Americas, Australia and Israel and is now used widely used in skincare products to moisturise, sooth and repair our skin.

What makes Jojoba Oil so special?

Jojoba Oil works with your skin rather than against.

  • Jojoba shares the same molecular structure as the natural wax esters found in healthy human skin.  This similarity enables our skin to be more receptive in receiving the vital nutrients and anti-oxidants that Jojoba Oil possesses. It also helps with restoring balance and helping your skin behave as it is designed to do.
  • Suitable for All Skin Types - It is non-comedogenic with a rating of 2 on the comedogenic scale, means that it doesn't clog pores. It deeply nourishes and hydrates dry skin and for those with oily skin it helps regulate the skins sebum production.
