PorterSpa Jojoba oil is certified Organic. It is a botanical extract of the seed of the jojoba tree. What’s interesting about it is that it isn’t actually oil, but rather what they call a wax ester. Why do we care? Out of all of the compounds in nature, this wax ester is the most similar to human skin oil (sebum). It is theorized that applying jojoba to the skin can “trick” the skin into thinking it is producing enough oil, thus balancing oil production. In south Florida the climate is hot and sticky. Heavy moisturizers clog pores. This is light on the skin, however it doesn't evaporate like water based moisturizers can. Very stable – jojoba oil does not become rancid or lose antioxidants even after long periods of storage. Spreads well and absorbs well. Works great to help remove eye makeup.
