The Science Behind Jojoba Oil
Did you know that Jojoba oil is made up of a wax ester that is identical to the natural sebum that our skin produces? How interesting is that. What makes this oil in particular so special though, is the fact that the jojoba plant is the only plant on earth that is known to produce this oil, which just so happens to be the closest found product to our human anatomy. This plant practically produces liquid magic.
Jojoba also has the ability to penetrate deep into the skin, to the layers where regeneration and synthesisation occur, and can mimic the nature of our natural oil glands. Isn’t that amazing? I mean, what can’t this oil do?

Why take your daily dose of vitamins when you can apply them directly to the skin?
Jojoba is naturally high in vitamin A, D and E and also contains essential fatty acids such as Omega 6, 9, and Docosanol (a fatty alcohol that can block virus’, speed up healing and decrease symptoms by entering your healthy skin cells and growing in bumber).
