The seeds of jojoba are one of the world’s only known sustainable, eco-friendly and vegan source of liquid wax esters. The extracted oil from these seeds, is primarily made up of these liquid wax esters, is compatible with human sebum and promotes retention of skin moisture. It’s stable at high temperatures and does not easily go rancid. Today, 90 percent of jojoba seed oil is used in cosmetics because of its nourishing properties and compatibility with human skin. Note that when jojoba oil is listed on an ingredient label as one of the first ingredients, the product is an excellent source of the oil. Be wary of companies that say “made with jojoba oil” but also add cheaper oils and waxes. It’s always best to choose products made with organic jojoba oil because skin reactions typically stem from additives in conventional jojoba oil.
