Jojoba oil, this oil is a true skin hero. Once popular in the 1960's jojoba is going through somewhat of a revival, the comeback kid of natural skincare. Jojoba is also known as wild hazel,  goat nut, deer nut, pignut, quinine nut, coffeeberry, and grey box bush. Jojoba Oil, pronounced Ho-ho-bah! is referred to as an “oil” but it is, in fact, a liquid wax. This structure makes it an essential ingredient in natural skincare, it's cellular make up is the closest to the natural cell structure of our skin's oils. 
Pure cold pressed plant oils haven't had anything added to them from the time they leave their source to the moment you put them on your skin. 
Natural ingredients will give you the best results in your weekly skincare routine because your skin is a natural living breathing organ and recognises the compounds in natural skincare, taking them into the skin more symbiotically.

Jojoba Oil is native to southern Arizona and California. Native americans discovered the importance and versatility of jojoba using it for skincare and to aid skin healing.

A humble plant with star qualities !!... 


 1. Moisturising: It is lighter than other face oils and easily absorbed into skin. It deeply penetrates to soothe and soften while providing an moisturising effect and adding the perfect soft texture.

2.  Nutritious. Jojoba is full of nutrients like Vitamin E and B, as well as antioxidants and minerals like chromium, copper, and zinc, which all nourish and protect skin. Organic, cold-pressed, jojoba oil has the highest level of antioxidants and nutrients that are necessary for effective skin health.

3. Hydrating. Studies have shown that jojoba oil provides substantial skin hydration as it locks in moisture for longer.

4.  Anti–Microbial. Jojoba oil naturally deters microbes, helping to prevent the growth of bacteria on skin. This property makes it useful for those with acne, and also provides an added wound-healing benefit, that's what the native americans discovered. 

5.  Beats acne. Because Jojoba oil is very similar to human skin oils, it's use can trick the skin into thinking it has produced enough oil and balance oil production, without promoting acne or other skin problems. 
6. Light, Not Oily. Because Jojoba oil is very similar to our own skin oils, it immediately penetrates skin and smooths easily, helping to promote healthy, glowing skin without clogging pores or leaving a greasy residue.

7. Preserving. Because it is the perfect moisturiser, Jojoba can help slow down the appearance of ageing and help to fade fine lines and wrinkles. In dermatological tests, it was shown that jojoba oil increases the skin's suppleness and the effect was still present as time passes. Test also showed continued use of Jojoba oil resulted in reducing superficial facial lines. 

I use this oil as a cleanser alternating it with rose hip and sweet almond depending on my skin's needs, I love it and my teenage daughter is passionate about it for taking off make-up, all thanks to its mimicry of the skin's natural oils. My skin has never felt so healthy and soft. You'll keep hearing me say that ;-) I have never felt as confident about my skin.
