Jojoba Oil (Simmondsia Chinensis Seed Oil)

Jojoba Oil is derived from the seeds of the Simmondsia Chinensis plant. This golden liquid is prized for its extensive skin and hair conditioning properties. It is chemically similar to the sebum produced by the human skin, making it highly compatible with a variety of skin types.

Side Effects

Jojoba Oil is typically safe for most people when applied to the skin. However, some people may have an allergic reaction, which could include symptoms like rash or itching.
