Jojoba (pronounced "ho-ho-ba") is an evergreen shrub
found in the southwestern United States, Israel and Argentina. Plants
in the wild usually range in height from three to 15 feet and are
believed to have longevity of 150 to 200 years.
The jojoba oil is extracted from the seed of the
plant. Female jojoba plants produce a seed that contains 40-60% liquid
wax. Jojoba oil is composed of liquid wax esters which
make up 26-30% of our skin's surface layer called sebum. As we age our
rate of wax ester production steadily decreases, particularly in women.
Since it has
an affinity to the skin, and the normal skin lubrication found
in the skin (sebum), it is used with great effect in a variety
of skin care products, ranging from anti-acne to anti-aging
It has a great
effect on fighting wrinkles, as well as having an anti-bacterial
effect on the skin.

absorption studies at the University of Michigan demonstrated
that jojoba is quickly absorbed into the skin, which is
apparently via the transappendegeal mechanism and occurs through
the pores and hair follicles – but because it is so rapidly
absorbed, the pores and hair follicles remain open and thus
maintain their proper functioning ability.
It is an
excellent moisturizes and softens the skin by a dual action –
firstly by forming a non-greasy lipid layer, which is partially
occlusive (thereby preventing water-loss through the skin) and
by the diffusion of jojoba into the intercellular spaces of the
stratum corneum to soften this tissue.
