Jojoba oil is not an oil but a liquid wax, and is pronounced "ho-ho-ba". Over time the use of Jojoba oil significantly changes the appearance of pore size and moisturizes the skin. It also makes a great makeup base. Jojoba oil has some amazing properties since it is suitable for all skin types and penetrates the skin readily and for this reason is frequently used in skincare and cosmetic products.
Since Jojoba oil is composed of wax esters, it is an extremely stable substance and does not easily deteriorate.
