Jojoba Oil

by Kathryn Holdforth May 09, 2015

Jojoba Oil is a botanical extract of the seed of the jojoba tree (Simmondsia chinenis). It isn’t actually an oil, but rather a wax ester. This wax ester is the most similar to human skin oil (sebum).  It contains such microelements and nutrients as zinc, copper, silicon, iodine, chromium, Vitamins E and B group, acids and other natural ingredients. When used externally, this natural product allows us enjoy its antibacterial, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, moisturizing and soothing properties. Jojoba oil is easily absorbed by skin and does not leave any unpleasant oily feeling or oily residue.

JK Naturals uses jojoba oil in all our lip balms (except chocolate), and in all our body lotions.
