The Jojoba Company from Australia skincare is Tucson bound with me!


Hi ya Gorgeous,
It's #ThrowbackThursday and I think it's so fun to find a photo from back in time and visit it again. So that is at the bottom of this blog post.

For now, I am already on the road and traveling for a weekend full of adventure. I'm taking with me The Jojoba Company from Australia skincare.

It's luxury in a tube or tub, and so healing  to the skin. This weekend is full of all day outdoor activity and then some! I have a feeling I am going to need some skin TLC!


My favorite product is the creme with a drop of the Jojoba oil in it-I use it all over and when I apply it I can feel the happy on my skin!
I put it on my Mancub too because the skin on the backs of his arms has keratosis pilaris and the Jojoba soothes and softens the bumps.




The Jojoba Company was founded in 2008 by Ian Turner, who planted his first crop of jojoba on the family estate in New­ South Wales, Australia over a decade ago. As a pioneer of jojoba farming in Australia, Ian believed that his crop could revolutionise the skin care industry due to its remarkable natural qualities for skin.
Vicki Engsall, daughter of Ian Turner, shared her father's passion for jojoba and began to expand her knowledge of the unique advantages of jojoba on skin. Together, they sought to create a unique skin care range promoting the skin health benefits of their own 100% natural Australian jojoba.
“Why subject your skin to chemical preservatives and synthetic ingredients when you could use a natural alternative that is good for your skin. We all avoid eating, drinking or inhaling chemical preservatives and synthetic foods, why would you risk ingesting them in to your skin. The Jojoba Company's skincare range is naturally good for your skin as well as the earth.” Vicki Engsall

Infused with hand selected natural and organic ingredients from around the globe, The Jojoba Company has created a natural range of skin and body care products with a strong focus on anti-aging and skin­­­ health.
Since its inception, The Jojoba Company has grown from a start-up venture to a mainstream player within the skin care sector, utilising the benefits of 100% natural Australian jojoba as the hero ingredient.


So I'm using this now and taking it with me on the weekend travel that started today in the wee hours of the morning!

100% Natural Australian Jojoba

$19.95 30mL
Nature's wrinkle fighter.  
Youthful skin produces wax esters that are responsible for the deep cleansing and moisturising of skin, hair and nails. Up to 30% of healthy young skin sebum is made up of wax esters. As we grow older, wax ester production begins to slow down. As a result, the functions of wax esters are lost, allowing moisture to escape from skin cells. This begins the aging process of skin.

Jojoba is the only plant known to produce wax esters instead of plant oil. Its molecular structure is similar to the wax esters in youthful skin sebum. Jojoba is naturally hypoallergenic and contains powerful antioxidants, Omega 6 & 9 fatty acids, and Vitamins A, D and E. As a result, when jojoba is applied to skin, it puts back what aging takes away, working immediately to begin restoring youthful looking skin, naturally.
Jojoba moisturises lips, face, hands, cuticles, body and hair, leaving skin smooth and hair silky. Apply jojoba to wet or dry skin, hair and nails.

Regular skin treatments are the key to glowing skin.

Exfoliators and face masks rejuvenate, restore, and encourage skin cell renewal.  
Regular exfoliation 1-3 times per week removes the dead skin cells that reside on the surface of your skin, leaving skin smooth, glowing and rejuvenated. Face mask treatments send active ingredients deep into skin, providing the restorative break your skin needs to glow with vitality.
