100% pure liquid wax esters make up to 50% of the mass of jojoba beans. Wax esters make up to 30% of the sebum produced in young, healthy skin. They kill germs, smother viruses, keep sebum liquid and flowing, naturally condition hair and create the barrier in skin that stops moisture from escaping from deeper living skin cells.
This natural moisture barrier keeps skin smooth, supple and glowing. Around the age of twenty, wax ester production in skin begins to reduce causing accelerated skin aging.
Jojoba is the only sustainable alternative source of wax esters. If your skin is not making enough, jojoba can put back what age takes away.

Powerful antioxidant properties in jojoba come from skin welcoming jojoba in, all the way down to skin cell and skin matrix level. Wax esters fill the gaps between skin cells, soothe them and slow their metabolism. They protect skin against accelerated skin aging which starts naturally at maturity but can be made worse at any time of life by illness, medication, pollution and unnatural environmental conditions.
