PORTRAIT

With a molecular structure that closely resembles our skin’s natural sebum, Jojoba penetrates the skin well as a moisturizer and offers a pleasant texture for massage. Jojoba wax contains myristic acid, an anti-inflammatory agent, making it an excellent carrier for all muscle, tendon and ligament injury blends. Jojoba’s resistance to oxidation means it does not go rancid and has no expiration date; it lasts indefinitely. Cold-pressed from the seeds, jojoba has very little aroma.

PROPERTIES

Jojoba oil contains beneficial ingredients, including vitamin E, vitamin B complex, silicon, chromium, copper and zinc. It has a very high percentage of iodine at 82 percent, which gives jojoba oil its power to heal. It contains three fatty acids: erucic(13.6 percent), gadoleic (71.3 percent) and oleic (11.2 percent).

HOW TO USE

You can rub a few drops of Jojoba oil between your palms and apply it on the face and other exposed parts whenever you venture out and after washing your face every time. For a deeper moisturizing effect, warm up a spoonful of Jojoba oil and massage it in after washing the face at bedtime and leave it on overnight. Pure Jojoba oil is fully absorbed into the skin, leaving it feeling soft and smooth. Jojoba can be used for dry hair; apply a small amount to the ends of your hair.
