Jojoba (Simmondsia Chinensis) Oil: Found in the southwest desert and used by Native American cultures for centuries, jojoba oil is amazingly similar to the oils (sebum) naturally produced by our own skin and our skin loves it for it. Technically not an oil but a wax, it just like our own skin contains a high level of wax mono-esters. The naturally pressed oils of the jojoba bean are incredibly stable and restorative with the added benefit of being non-toxic, non-comedogenic, and hypoallergenic; safe to use in any skin or hair treatment. It is also an excellent antibacterial and antifungal agent, having the ability to kill both the bacteria, Staphylococcus aureus and the fungus, Candida albicans. The healing properties of Jojoba are found in all our Lip Balms, Calendula Super Salve and Hair Styling wax.
