Jojoba is an emollient for skin and hair that is obtained from the nut of the jojoba shrub. Jojoba is a liquid wax that is highly penetrating and has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant qualities. A high iodine concentration (81.7%), gives jojoba oil a great power to heal. It can help heal acne, athlete’s foot, cuts, mouth sores, pimples, and warts. The oil also helps to remove buildup around hair follicles.
