Where does that stuff come from?
- Jojoba grows as an evergreen, richly branched shrub, with a height of up to 4 meters
- Native to Mexico, California and the Sonora Desert
- In a natural environment, the shrubs can live up to 200 years.
- The seeds of the plant contain a liquid that is extracted by cold pressing.
- Jojoba oil is actually liquid wax
What can this stuff do?
- Jojoba oil is a must-have for beautiful hair and skin.
- It is extremely stable to oxidation and therefore the basis for almost all oil mixtures
- It is perfect for oily, sensitive skin and for combination skin – basically for all skin types
- The fatty acid composition of jojoba oil is very similar to the naturally formed oil in our skin sebum.
- This means that the oil penetrates the skin well, is easy to spread and does not leave a greasy film.
- Ideal moisturizer for skin and hands, care for hair and nails.
- packed with skin-loving vitamins, nutrients, fatty acids, erucic acid and eicosenoic acid as well as natural vitamin E and phytosterols
- balances the production of sebum and thus ensures balanced skin in a natural way
- dry “oil” – has a wonderful, light texture
- excellent moisturizer.
- deeply nourishing and yet feels light on the skin.
- forms a protective barrier on the skin, but still allows the skin to breathe.
- makes the skin super soft and supple
- has a balancing effect, does not clog the pores
- increases the elasticity of the skin
- provides long-lasting protection against moisture loss.
- slightly anti-inflammatory
- Helps against acne
- Strengthens the connective tissue and prevents wrinkles
- Jojoba oil is used in many hair products, such as Conditioners, shampoos and hair treatments.
- The deeply nourishing oil nourishes the hair and makes it super soft and shiny.
- Jojoba oil has a natural sun protection factor of three to four and is therefore used as a base oil for sun oils.
