Endemic to the Sonoran Desert of Mexico and the United States, Jojoba produces large edible seeds that contain around 50 percent oil. It was extensively utilised by the Native Americans who used Jojoba oil for its medicinal properties, such as wound healing and skin disorders. It was also used cosmetically to keep hair shiny and skin soft and smooth.
Jojoba oil is ideal for the skin because it is similar to the sebum that humans produce and it is rich in vitamin E and B-complex vitamins, which help repair skin damage and can ease the effects of dry skin conditions.
