Jojoba Oil

Jojoba oil is actually a liquid wax (which means it won't go rancid)! Known as the "skin's twin" in skin-care circles (it is very similar in structure to our skin's natural sebum), Jojoba is excellent for all skin types, but most especially for eczema and psoriasis.

Jojoba oil is easily absorbed by the skin and has a non-oily, softening effect. Jojoba oil can help to soften and unclog pores when used as a facial massage medium. It contains protein, minerals, plant wax and myristic acid (which also has anti-inflammatory actions). Jojoba is not a nut-based oil. May be used as a base or a 10% dilution.
