Jojoba Oil, Golden

Available Options

Jojoba Oil (Simmondsia chinensis) is considered non-comedogenic and non-allergenic and it provides a wonderful silky afterfeel to your lotions, creams, balms and other creations at a low percentage.  In reality is not an oil, it is actually a liquid wax.  The tannins in Jojoba oil offer anti-oxidant and astringent properties and the fatty alcohols can soothe extremely dry skin.  It is considered a great addition to hair care products as it penetrates the skin through the hair follicles and forms a non-occlusive layer on our scalp and hair.  Jojoba oil may cloud if it gets cold, but bringing it back to room temp will remedy this.
