Due to its chemical characteristics, Jojoba oil differs from all other vegetable oils.
It is not, in fact, a triglyceride but a liquid wax, essentially consisting of a mixture of long-chain fatty acid esters and fatty alcohols, without glycerol molecules and with a high content of antioxidant tocopherols. These characteristics are responsible for Jojoba oil's good stability and protect it from oxidization and rancidity.
In cosmetics, one of its most important characteristics is its ease of absorption, thanks to its remarkable affinity with sebum produced by the skin.
