Jojoba is a desert shrub originally native to the Arizona, California. It has an array of skin benefits and can also be used to moisturise hair and condition nails. It is a skin normaliser so great for all skin types even the most sensitive or those suffering with acne. It helps heal scars and keep skin protected and repaired due to its easily absorbed molecular structure, a wax ester similar to those in our own sebum; helping to regulate sebum production.
