It’s not only because of its name that Jojoba is unique. Derived from a desert plant found in northern Mexico and the southwestern United States, 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 sebum's protection, the oil that our skin produces naturally. By resembling sebum, the skin knows exactly how to use Jojoba oil by resembling sebum, absorbing it quickly and easily to create a powerful barrier against moisture loss and allergens and irritants like dust and pollution.
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 repairs skin. It’s hypo-allergenic so that 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.
