Properties of Jojoba oil
The oil extracted from Jojoba seeds, is commonly used in cosmetics and personal care products. Jojoba is rich in Vitamin E and is a natural antioxidant. One of the reasons why Jojoba oil is so popular is the fact that it's chemical makeup is so unique it closely mimics the natural oils secreted by the skin (sebum).
Further more it is hypoallergenic and has the ability to penetrate the skin without blocking, and works well to break down excess sebum and product residues and pollutants that cling to the skin and hair.
It is very beneficial for moisturising extra dry and flaky skin, and assisting in the natural removal of dead skin cells. As it is so close in consistency to the skin's natural oil, it help in preventing wrinkles and lines and keeps the skin more supple, smoother and softer.
