Jojoba oil is widely used by R&D professionals in a wide range of personal care formulations, from baby care to anti-aging applications.

Due to its unique properties, formulators chose to add Jojoba oil to their formulations in order to obtain a light feeling, natural Omega 9 and Vitamin E enjoying from clean beauty cosmetics.

In late research, it was found that Jojoba oil is not only beneficial in an aesthetic sense, however, due to its unique chemical structure, which is similar to 25% of the human sebum, Jojoba oil is safe to use on all skin types.
