From Native American cure to modern cosmetic, jojoba oil comes from a shrubby tree in the southwest, modestly masking its glamorous capabilities. Because the tree is slow-growing, the oil is relatively rare. The properties of the oil from this amazing plant are so moisturizing that jojoba oil gained fame as a weapon lubricant during World War II.
With its anti-inflammatory qualities, jojoba is good for easing dryness that occurs from eczema and rosacea, calming the skin.

Gentle and refreshing
With its soothing and cleansing properties, jojoba oil is a gentle and refreshing make-up remover. From homemade bath bombs to moisturizing balms, adding jojoba oil to your body products gives richness. The jojoba nut is also called the goat nut or coffeeberry and grows on a desert shrub.

This pure jojoba nut oil gives all your skin the nourishment it craves. Just like in wine, the jojoba plant takes on the characteristics of the soil it’s grown in (this is called terroir). This Leven Rose jojoba, Simmondsia Chinensis, comes from its homeland in Arizona, so it keeps the original characteristics that brought jojoba oil its original popularity. It’s cold-pressed, meaning the oils are naturally extracted without heat, carefully preserving the natural qualities.
