Jojoba Seed Oil (Simmondsia Chinensis)

Jojoba oil is actually a wax with a low enough melting point it stays in liquid form. It comes from the seeds of the Simmondsia Chinensis, a shrub that grows wild in the Southwestern part of the U.S. Jojoba most closely mimics the skin’s own protective barrier in terms of feel, and is well tolerated by most. Due to its purported antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, jojoba is often used to treat and prevent acne. Because it will not oxidize like coconut oil. Oils like jojoba are sometimes infused with hydrogen in order to delay oxidation, which extends the life of our products. The process also thickens the oil, which helps ensure a consistent, firm texture in our natural mineral sunscreen sticks.
