I love Jojoba Oil!!!


Introducing Jojoba Oil:
Jojoba (pronounced ho-HO-ba) is a botanical extract of the seed of the jojoba tree (Simmondsia chinenis). What’s interesting about it is that it isn’t actually an oil, but rather what they call a wax ester. Why do we care? Because out of all of the compounds in nature, this wax ester is the most similar to human skin oil (sebum). Jojoba oil is non-comedogenic so we can use it without fear.

The best thing about Jojoba oil is that you can use it in MANY different ways!

Moisturizer: You can add a few drops of Jojoba oil into your everyday moisturizer feeling your skin soft and smooth. It can also be applied to your skin by itself. This includes your face and body!

Make-up remover: Jojoba oil can easily remove makeup including foundation, eyeshadow, blush..etc! I actually do this at home. It works quite well! I put some Jojoba oil onto a cotton pad and gently remove it, the makeup pretty much just glides off. It wont irritate the skin and it feels nice because I know the oil is good for the skin other than other makeup removers with harsh chemicals.

Also good for hair conditioner, lip balm, shaving oil, massage oil, restoring the skin, stretch marks, acne scars, cuticle oil....
