What is Jojoba Oil?
Jojoba Oil – though termed an oil – is actually a wax ester produced from the seeds of Simmondsia Chinensis, a shrubby tree native to southern Arizona, California and northwest Mexico. Our source is organic, meaning the plant is sustainably grown in a nutrient-rich environment free of synthetic pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, fertilisers or genetic modification. Doing so assures us this active is the purest and kindest it can be.
