Jojoba (Simmondsia chinensis) Seed Oil – This rich oil helps the jojoba desert plant retain water during the long summer drought. In cosmetics, it acts as a humectant and creates a protective film over the skin that helps keep moisture in. Jojoba oil is similar in structure to human sebum and is able to effectively penetrate the skin. It contributes to cellular renewal.

Juglans Regia (Walnut) Shell Powder is a powder of the ground shells of the walnut, used as a soft yet effective exfoliator to rid the skin of dullness and roughness.
