Jojoba

(Simmondsia chinensis)

The Indians who inhabited the semi-deserts of Arizona, Baja California and Mexico have used it for centuries, and passed on knowledge about it from generation to generation. It has always helped them to protect their skin from the strong sun, to heal wounds and soothe pain in muscles and bones, but also to soften animal skin during tanning. The white man was not very interested in this strange fruit until the ban on whaling and whale fat trade was introduced in 1971. Then the search for something that has a similar composition and use began. And so the interest in it began – jojoba. Jojoba oil (or wax) is rich in vitamins and minerals, primarily vitamin E, which is known as a skin protector, and B-complex vitamins, as well as chromium, zinc and iodine. Therefore, it is ideal for treating dry skin, especially the irritation after sun exposure. The composition of this oil has a strong antibacterial effect, it helps with skin disorders, especially acne, because it stabilizes the secretion of sebum. Jojoba has a strong effect on disorders such as dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis, seborrhea, dandruff, rosacea and various inflammations.
