History and origin

Jojoba is a shrub native to South American desert (Arizona, Mexico), it lives at least 100 years and jojoba fruit contains the seeds used to produce the oil.
Jojoba oil is particularly close to sebum naturally secreted by our glands. Its ability to penetrate the skin is extraordinary. It is a perfect vector in aromatherapy. It is a stable oil, that does not get rancid at all (it has a good oxidation and heat resistance). Native-Americans, who considered it had magical properties, used jojoba as a remedy to heal the wounds, a restorer and a conditioner for hairs, food, a medicine and as a protector for the skin against high solar radiations of the desert.
