We chose jojoba as one of the staples of our beauty regimen because of its long history and versatility. Jojoba is naturally antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and non-comedogenic and indigenous people in the American Southwest have been using jojoba for hundreds of years to treat skin conditions, wounds, sun and windburn, and as a hair and scalp treatment. One of two oils that are the most structurally similar to the skin's natural oil – the other being whale oil – the use of the more humane and renewable jojoba became more prevalent after the government banned the use of sperm whale oil in 1974.
Each edition of this blend is limited and is scented with a complex lavender that grows at high elevations in the French Alps. The plants are harvested and distilled by a female owned floral farm in Nice whose workers and apprentices are partially hired from a local school for troubled youth, sent to the farm for emotional healing.
