It is speculated that applying jojoba to the skin can “trick” the skin into believing it is delivering enough oil, therefore balancing face oil production.  Jojoba oil is non-comedogenic, which means that it is specially formulated so as not to cause blocked pores.

  • Because it’s concentrated, it won’t evaporate.
  • It is speculated, however not yet demonstrated, that in light of the fact that jojoba oil is so like human skin oil, it can “trap” the skin into supposing it has delivered enough oil and in this manner parity oil generation.
  • Extremely steady – Jojoba has a very long shelf life and resists rancidity.
  • It’s very light and easily absorbed into the skin.
  • The natural assortment is free of pesticides, GMOs, and is reasonably cultivated.
