Ingredient Spotlight: Jojoba Oil

Welcome to Ingredient Spotlight! At Mom of 11 Kids, we’re proud of the natural ingredients that we have hand-selected for our products. We searched for oils with antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and soothing properties. Every last ingredient is helping in some way to help heal and protect even the most sensitive skin. When we say no unnecessary ingredients, we mean it.

That being said, we’d like to share a little more insight into each one – from why we choose it to some of the reported benefits that we feel are important to note.

We’ll be shining the spotlight on one ingredient each month, and we’re excited to kick this series off with Jojoba Seed Oil!

What is it?

A moisturizer

Why did we choose it?

It’s an anti-inflammatory with soothing properties. It helps to form a long-lasting moisture seal which continues to soften and restore dry skin over time.

An Overview

Jojoba Oil is derived from the jojoba plant, which is a woody shrub that grows in desert regions around the world. Having unique properties, it’s been used over the years to support the healing of a wide range of common skin conditions.
