Jojoba is a DELIGHTFUL carrier oil that is most similar to our skins natural sebum. This is an excellent carrier for newborns and nursing mothers too! This source is a sustainable farm in India, personally known by Somah.
Jojoba's rich, golden oil actually seals moisture in; it's what helps the jojoba desert plant survive long summer droughts. It is a golden liquid plant wax that comes from the beans. It has a mild odor and is more stable than oils. Rancidity is rarely a concern since it is actually a wax.
It is great for the skin since it has properties similar to our skin's sebum. In fact, it's most used by massage therapists. Want to know the quality test? Your skin should be able to absorb a small drop, almost instantly! It also moisturizes skin without leaving any oily residue, effectively cleanses clogged pores, and helps prevent flakiness when massaged on scalp.
It can be used as a face wash: "Oil begets oil.." and this with some added Tea tree, as an anti-bacterial would be an outstanding choice!
