Jojoba is a rich source of oleic acid, eicosenoic acid, and erucic acid, as well as lower levels of stearic, palmitic, nervonic, and palmitoleic acids, all of which have antioxidant, antiseptic, and anti-inflammatory effects on the body.
Jojoba is rich in vitamins and minerals that nourish hair, including vitamin C, B vitamins, vitamin E, copper, and zinc.
Its composition is similar in consistency to sebum. Sebum is our body’s natural oils that seal moisture and protects our skin and hair from damage. We use jojoba in our aromatherpay products; however, due to its close resemblance to sebum, jojoba oil is an effective skin and hair healer all on its own! It is easily absorbed by skin and hair and excellent for promoting and supporting healthy skin and heatlhy hair.
Jojoba oil has a longer shelf life than many other natural oils.
