Jojoba oil is extracted from seeds of the jojoba plant, scientifically known as Simmondsia chinensis, which is indigenous to southern United States and northern Mexico.
Jojoba oil is actually a mixture of long chain monounsaturated liquid wax esters. They are structurally different from triglycerides, which are what most of the other seed oils are made of. Technically speaking, it isn’t really an oil after all. The pure version of the jojoba oil has a bright, golden color whereas the processed version is clear and transparent.
Jojoba mimics the skin’s natural oils and can penetrate deep into the skin layers. Jojoba naturally contains a balance of vitamins A, D and E which are known as skin healing vitamins. The most notable benefits of jojoba oil include its ability to moisturize the hair, prevent hair loss, reduce inflammation, prevent acne, soothe sunburn, rejuvenate the skin.
