Botanical Name: Simmondsia Chinensis
Jojoba oil has been long known for its healing benefits. Native Americans once extracted the oil from seeds of the jojoba shrub to treat and heal skin lesions. It is very compatible with the skin as it easily absorbs into it much like our own sebum. Jojoba oil is referred to as an oil, but it is actually a liquid plant wax. Due to its waxy qualities, it helps to form a protective layer on the skin, holding in moisture and providing it with added softness.
