I had never heard of jojoba before being contacted by The Jojoba Company to try out a few products. It’s actually quite fascinating! The plant produces a small seed, or nut, that was used by Native American tribes to heal and condition their skin, as well as food to stave off hunger or help with childbirth. Nowadays it is used for everything from bio-diesel fuel to cooking oil! However, it remains one of the greatest gifts for beauty because it is naturally hypoallergenic and contains powerful antioxidants, Omega 6 & 9 fatty acids, and Vitamins A, D and E.
The reason why it works so wonderfully for skin is because our skin health is maintained by an oily (waxy) solution called sebum; which 25-30% of the skin’s sebum is made up of wax esters. These wax esters moisturize and firm our skin, but as we grow older it decreases; which causes the aging process. Jojoba is the only plant known to produce wax esters like our skin and because of that, our skin naturally takes to it. I love to look at it as summer’s gold.
Unlike many other skincare products, there is absolutely no scent to Jojoba. It’s smooth as silk and leaves your skin with a soft moisturized glow. The 100% Natural Jojoba is purely that and nothing else. It balances, protects and heals the skin; which makes it great for all skincare needs and for all ages. If you have a specific skincare issue, you can check out the Skin Type/Concern section to find which products will also pair and benefit you personally.

Even though it looks and feels like an oil, it is actually a wax. I not only use it on my skin, but on my son’s hands which constantly callous and crack due to excessive clapping. Jojoba allows for deeper absorption so it protects longer where it matters.
They also create many other beauty products using jojoba’s properties with other skincare needs. One of these is their Intense Overnight Renewal Cream which has become a part of my nightly routine. It uses jojoba with marine collagen and CoQ10 to encourage overnight skin renewal. Marine collagen plumps the skin as CoQ10 is an antioxidant to protect skin from drying out. This allows it to hydrate and plump the skin overnight while you are sleeping! Because it has no detergents, chemicals, paraben, artificial fragrances, colors, PEGs, mineral oil or sodium lauryl sulphate, it is also suitable for all skin types.
The cream is so, so soft that it feels like a luxury to put on. It has a very, very light clean scent and absorbs quickly. You don’t have to worry about putting it on and having a greasy feeling all night. Your skin will just breath it in and you can wake up from moisturized beauty sleep! After a few weeks you will absolutely see a difference in your skin and how it feels.
The Jojoba Company also offers eye creams, masks, defoliators, make-up removers, cleansers, toning mists and many age defying products. Everything a woman that loves her skin would dream of. You can find all of these at The Jojoba Company.
