Directions

This jojoba lotion is the answer to dry and dull-looking skin. Its effects are credited to the jojoba itself, whose oil provides long-lasting moisturizing effects, and aloe, which is known for soothing skin irritations. Additionally, it is infused with essential oils extracted from grapefruit, a tropical fruit with potent antioxidant properties, which are especially beneficial for the skin. Its beta carotene content has been found to brighten the skin's complexion and boost its natural collagen production, while keeping it clean and healthy thanks to its antibacterial abilities.
