WHAT IS IT?
Jojoba oil (simmondsia chinensis) comes from the nut produced by the jojoba plant. It's a highly moisturising ingredient that attracts water to the top layer of the skin. It can help protect from bacterial infections, acne and the formation of dandruff.
Jojoba oil contains antimicrobial and antifungal properties, as well as containing natural forms of vitamin E, helping to fight of oxidants and protect from pollutants. In addition to acting as a protectant, these antioxidants may also help the skin produce collagen.
Jojoba oil is similar to sebum, the oil skin naturally produces, making it less likely to build up and clog pores. Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, jojoba oil can also help to reduce acne and soothe the skin.
