This oil is nature’s only liquid wax which means it has the protective power of a wax but with the light emollient softness of oil. It is often used on dry, sensitive, oily or acne prone skins to alleviate minor skin irritations. It is also effective in the treatment of dry and sore skin, eczema, psoriasis and allergies. Jojoba is valued for the unique protective oil derived from its seeds that help to retain moisture. The natural sebum of the skin is similar to those in jojoba, and so penetration with jojoba is easier, leaving a silky feel to the skin.
