Jojoba oil is a drought resistant, perennial plant that is used topically for skin conditions such as skin infections, skin ageing, and wound healing due to its anti-inflammatory effect. Jojoba oil also has a high content of wax esters making it a good repair option for dermatoses with altered skin barriers, such as seborrheic dermatitis, eczematous dermatitis and acne [1].
