Many of Anato's products are jojoba oil based. Why?
Whether your skin is too oily, too dry, or too sensitive - jojoba is here to balance your skin out and plays a key role in our skincare routine.
The chemical makeup of jojoba oil mimics the sebum our skin naturally produces, helping to:
⟡ Balance & regulate our bodies’ oil production: no more excess oil production
⟡ Absorb easily, leaving a non greasy film
⟡ Prevent water loss - the cause of aging skin
⟡ Noncomedogenic = means that it will not clog pores
⟡ Treat & prevent acne causing bacteria
Find out why you shouldn't wash your face with soap and why opting for a facial oil is so important.
a resilient perennial plant in the face of climate change
Plus, beyond its skin benefits, jojoba has environmental benefits. In the midst of a warming climate, jojoba is a drought tolerant shrub that thrives in stark conditions that most plants would wither away in. Anato prides itself in its conscientious sourcing of ingredients - and our jojoba oil is an excellent example of how we operate as a social enterprise by choosing crops from regenerative agriculture farms.
As a social enterprise, we source jojoba from a regenerative agriculture farm
Our organic jojoba grows in its natural habitat ⤅ The Pacific South West Desert.
The jojoba shrub thrives in the desert. It produces this prized oil to protect itself against water loss in its arid environment — it does the same for our skin.
We call the farmers ⤅ to freshly press the seeds for us on demand.
Jojoba is not the only perennial plant that we use, check out our other ingredients that are good for your skin & the planet.
