Vitamins and minerals for a fresh, firm complexion
Jojoba oil comes from the seed of the jojoba bush (sommondsia chinensis), which can reach up to 200 years of age. The jojoba bush is a sclerophyllous evergreen and thrives especially well in the dry regions of Mexico, the USA, Australia, Peru, Argentina and Israel. The fruits of the jojoba bush are harvested and the seeds are then pressed. The result is a type of wax that is described as jojoba oil. Native, unrefined jojoba oil is easily recognised by its golden yellow colour and subtle fragrance.

Vitamins for youthful freshness
Jojoba oil contains a real cocktail of vitamins, comprising provitamin A, as well as vitamins E and B. While provitamin A, better known as beta carotene, promotes cell growth and has positive effects on the entire immune system, vitamin E fights free radicals and is an effective antioxidant. As vitamin E supports collagen formation, jojoba oil makes skin look firmer, fresher and younger. Scars can also be reduced with the help of many vitamins.

Fatty acids for elasticity and silkiness
Jojoba oil is almost composed of valuable fatty acids such as gadoleic acid, erucic acid or palmitic acids which contribute to maintaining the skin’s natural moisture content. They also ensure that oil can be particularly well spread over skin, quickly absorbed, and form a type of protective film at the same time. This means that jojoba oil not only provides moisture, but also protects your hands from drying out. It also supports the skin’s elasticity and gives it a pleasantly soft, silky feel.
Minerals for smooth-looking skin
Jojoba oil contains important minerals which have antibacterial and purifying effects, helping to alleviate spots and acne. The minerals also help fight free radicals and prevent inflammation thanks to their disinfecting effects. For this reason, jojoba oil is particularly good for brittle, chapped skin. But it also has positive effects on your hair, giving it a healthy sheen and preventing split-ends. It also cares for the scalp ans protects against dandruff and itching.
