The Jojoba plant (Simmondsia chinenis) is native to Northern Mexico and America. Jojoba oil is extracted from the seeds of the plant which has a golden colour. The processed variety is clear in colour.
Jojoba oil is not so much oil but more of a wax ester, it is very similar to sebum which is the natural oil found in human skin. Sebum is produced by the sebaceous glands in your skin and provides a protective layer.
Jojoba oil provides so many benefits to your skin
It contains tocopherols which make up vitamin E. Vitamin E is essential in protecting your skin cells from ultra violet light, pollution and other elements that produce cell damaging free radicals. Vitamin E regulates vitamin A in your body, which is important for healthy and radiant skin.
It is also an antioxidant which can help protect your skin from free radicals; these can contribute to many chronic diseases including cancer.
Jojoba oil is completely safe to use as its non-toxic. Unlike other oils it won’t clog your pores and cause any sudden flare-ups associated with problem skin; in fact, it is the main ingredient that is found in Lavilin Body Serum - Skin Soother.

There are many changes to that happen to aging skin, which damage all skin layers and all its tissues. It is possible to distinguish between changes caused as a result of internal changes, hereditary and hormonal changes, and changes caused by the external factors: pollution, smoking, dryness, mental stress, cold, bathing/cleansing materials and mainly by sun radiation.
Internal, Hereditary and Hormonal Causes:
Entail deterioration of quantity of tissues, lessening of cells and deceleration in their activity. This will be reflected in slow-down of cell regeneration, decrease in thickness of external skin layer, and lessening of pigment cells. In addition, a deceleration will occur in the regeneration and restoring process of connective tissues, the collagen and elastin and deceleration in the activity of sebum and perspiration glands etc. It should be pointed out that the main cause under this group is the heredity factor.
External and Environmental Causes, including Sun Radiation:
At first stages, these causes entail thickening and increasing of all tissues, but this increase is mainly in quantity and does not involve improvement in quality. Sun rays cause, for instance, thickening of the epidermis layer. This thickening is liable to cause with time development of cancerous skin tumors (damaging the cell nucleus in the DNA).
