Jojoba oil is extracted by cold pressing the seeds of Simmondisia chinensis, American plant by origin. Jojoba oil is actually...not an oil, but has the chemical composition of wax: it does not contain triglycerides and is rich in wax esters, tocopherols and tocotrienols, B vitamins and minerals. The high presence of tocopherols, natural antioxidants, means this product doesn’t turn rancid or oxidize easily.
The composition of jojoba oil is very similar to human sebum. Because of this it is able to maintain the correct hydration of the skin and protect it from dehydration, but also from external factors such as water, wind and smog. Also by virtue of this composition, jojoba oil is quickly absorbed and does not remain greasy on the skin. It is also perfect for haircare and beauty; it is applied over the length of the hair to flatten the cuticles making it appear smoother and brighter. In Ayurveda, jojoba oil is a rebalancing agent for Pitta skin types (characterised by sensitive, irritated and acne-prone skin) and Kapha skin types (thick, sebum-rich, greasy skin).
