Jojoba

Jojoba oil is extracted from the oil of the seed of the jojoba plant, a shrub which grows in Arizona, Southern California and north west Mexico. It’s a waxy substance, which has been used for medicinal purposes in folk medicine for generations.

Nowadays, it’s commonly used to help treat skin conditions such as acne and psoriasis. It’s also effective on sunburnt and dry, irritated skin, or just used as a simple, nourishing moisturiser, hair conditioner, make up remover or skin protector whilst shaving.

Jojoba is particularly useful on acne prone skin, as it doesn’t clog the pores and is high in iodine, which acts as a natural antiseptic, helping to prevent spots and breakouts. It’s also high in skin loving antioxidant vitamin E which supports healthy skin and hair.
