What it is
Jojoba oil is a golden-colored liquid wax. It’s in oil form because it’s melting point is very low. This oil comes from the pressed seed of the jojoba plant. It’s main claim to fame is that its oil closely resembles our own oil that is secreted by our own sebum.
What it does
Since it so closely resembles our own natural oil, jojoba oil is great for conditioning. In fact, it is one of the best oils for conditioning hair and skin. It contains anti-fungal properties and is very high in vitamins (vitamins E and B, zinc, copper, selenium, chromium and iodine), and antioxidants. Jojoba oil absorbs quickly into skin and hair and is more easily regulated by our bodies as it has a good pH level.
