Jojoba Oil [Hoh-hoh-buh] is a cold pressed ester from the seeds of the desert shrub Simmondsia Chinensis. Jojoba Oil is actually not oil, but an array of wax esters. The structure of Jojoba Oil closely resembles that of your own skin’s sebum; therefore it has very good effects on the skin, acting as a moisturizer and emollient agent to improve skin elasticity and suppleness. May be used in toiletries, soaps, it is also a good choice for use on mature, aging skin and wrinkles. Jojoba has natural anti-oxidant properties and is said to help extend the shelf life of other oils.
