Skin Care
When used in products, it is excellent as a peeling agent to help remove dead skin cells. This will help stop deep set wrinkles from forming in the first place.
This is ideal in a night cream, for example, so the skin looks renewed and fresh.
Unblocks pores, so it can be added to cleansers and cleansing masks for congested skin as well as acne prone skin.
All skin types will benefit from this. Makes skin smoother, brighter and softer.
Assists the renewal of skin on its top layer so use in products for dull and lifeless skin.
Ideal when a sun tan has started to fade and is looking brassy.
Reduces visibility of skin discolouration and sun spots.
Use in exfoliating gels and scrubs. Improves the texture of dry, flaky skin
Can be used in pre moisturising gels or water based serums.
Use in everyday foot creams to help reduce hard skin.
Hair Care
Use in a hair pack when you want to clean up a congested scalp, perhaps after a weave has been in place for a long time.
Use at 3% to 6%.
It is safe to use at higher amounts but there is a possibility that the end product may feel a little sticky.
Water soluble, so cannot be used with oil only formulations.
Once opened do not leave the cap off the bottle whilst you are working and after use, squeeze some of the air out of the bottle to reduce potential oxidation and seal tightly.
Store in a cool, dry place. Protect from freezing and direct sunlight.


Add to exfoliating gels with Jojoba Peeling Grains to gently freshen up the appearance of the skin.
