Huile de Jojoba -
100 ml - Organic Virgin Oil extracted from first cold pressing
Jojoba is a thick and dense bush originating from the semi-desert regions of North Mexico and the United States. It was therefore used by the native Indians. They used the seeds, which are very protein rich (35%), for food and the oil was used as a remedy for healing wounds and for protecting skin and hair against the drying effects of the desert. The oil was also used for soothing skin and for strengthening hair. It was during the 1960s that American scientists Foster and Greene highlighted the properties of Jojoba Oil, which they considered a replacement for spermaceti (from whales) whose use would be banned several years later.
Properties: Jojoba Oil is an oil that is extremely rich in waxy esters. Its composition is therefore quite similar to that of human sebum and, as such, creates a non-greasy moisturising layer on the skin’s surface upon application. This high level of waxy esters makes it an excellent oil for sensitive or dry skins or for those prone to acne. It will hydrate the skin while restructuring and soothing it. It is also an extremely effective treatment for combating wrinkles. In addition, it can be used to nourish and soften hair; it is particularly suitable for those with greasy hair as it eliminates an excess of sebum. Finally, its high level of unsaponifiables gives it healing properties and allows it to absorb UVB rays.
