DESCRIPTION

One of our most popular oils, Jojoba is actually a liquid wax made up of esters of saturated and mono-unsaturated, fatty acid and fatty alcohols. This fascinating chemistry gives Jojoba excellent stability and versatility.

Interestingly, the composition of Jojoba is similar in many ways to sebum produced by our own skin which is perhaps why it is no nourishing, protective and well-tolerated

It penetrates the skin easily and can help to reduce water loss through the skin by forming a protective film.

Jojoba oil is also an excellent emollient and moisturiser for young skin types as it helps to regulate sebum production and is non-comedogenic.

It is prized  for its excellent moisturizing and nourishing properties and recommended for use on all skin types and in all skincare, make-up, and hair care products.

DIY Beeswax Wraps and Face Serum

I used this oil in beeswax wraps and had so much of it left over I've been using it as a face serum with clary sage added to it. I've found for my skin (diffused redness, very sensitive, post-oily, still have acne 30 years later!) that layering it over my moisturiser seems to work better than applying it before moisturiser; I've tried not using moisturiser in the warmer months but the jojoba isn't rich enough for me to get away without. I wear mineral powder foundation which can look chalky if there isn't the oil in the skin to draw on. Now I'm using the serum my foundation looks so pretty and I don't need to spritz with a finishing spray.

Fantastic prompt service from Pure Nature!

I buy jojoba oil regularly from Pure Nature and it always arrives on my doorstep within a day or so of ordering. I love the product and look forward to ordering from them again in the near future.
