Jojoba Esters 15
Jojoba Esters 15 are made from 100% pure natural Jojoba through an interesterification process. Through this process, the fatty acid and fatty alcohols rearrange themselves to form a new "oil-free" product that is virtually identical to the original jojoba oil. Jojoba Esters 15 are biodegradable and made from renewable resources.
Jojoba Esters 15 is a transparent, oil-free liquid. It can be used to provide non-greasy emolliency and a smooth, non-oily feel to the skin.
Tocopherol, a natural anti-oxidant, is added to Jojoba Esters 15 to enhance its shelf stability.
