INCI: Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed OilProduct Category: Oil
Jojoba Oil is a natural, nourishing liquid wax (called an oil), derived from the seed of the jojoba shrub – Simmondsia chinensis, also known as coffeeberry or wild hazel. Used because it is rich in Omega-9 fatty acids and fatty alcohols, that provides great benefits for beautiful and healthy skin, hair and nails. Unlike the lipids found in traditional natural oils (triglycerides), jojoba’s wax esters have a molecular structure made of long-chain Omega-9 fatty acids and fatty alcohols. Biochemically similar to – and mimic – lipids found naturally in the skin and scalp (sebum and the skin barrier). The unique structure gives jojoba oil an incredibly smooth non-greasy texture – plus better performance; absorption, stability and slip properties; and versatility.
The multi-tasking benefits of Jojoba Oil:
- Natural & Sustainable
- Mimics Skin & Scalp Lipids
- Fast Absorbing & Non-greasy
- Deep Hydration
- Pore Cleansing & Rebalancing
- Conditioning & Emollience
It is known to help replenish lipids, seal in moisture, and restore skin’s hydrolipidic film. Desert Whale Jojoba Oil also helps prevent visible signs of aging. This oil also has healing and anti-inflammatory properties, promotes rejuvenation and may help flush out oil and debris in clogged pores, while discouraging overproduction of sebum and minimizing the appearance of pores.
Jojoba Oil influences genes involved in inflammation, wound healing, skin regeneration, skin cell renewal, and other natural skin processes.
