Your spa and massage clients won’t forget the name or the benefits of Jojoba
By Jean Shea on Sep 17, 2015
It’s not only because of its name that Jojoba is unique. Derived from a desert plant found in desert regions of northern Mexico and southwestern United Sates; Jojoba Oil actually is not an oil. It’s thick velvety wax that is extracted from the seeds of the plant.Jojoba Oil has enjoyed popularity since its market introduction some 30 years ago because it closely models the protection provided by sebum, the oil that our skin produces naturally. By resembling sebum, the skin knows exactly how to use Jojoba oil, absorbing it quickly and easily in order to create a powerful barrier against moisture-loss, as well as against allergens and irritants like dust and pollution, according to Gnet.
At BIOTONE, we use Jojoba Oil in many products for its moisturizing benefits and because of its abundance of minerals, including silicon, chromium, copper and zinc, and Vitamin E protects and repair skin. It’s hypo-allergenic, so it can be used on the majority of clients. Non-greasy and easily washable, it’s a time and water saver at your spa or massage practice.
