Jojoba in Skin Care Products

Peter Thomas Roth Botanical Buffing Beads

Peter Thomas Roth Botanical Buffing Beads

Jojoba (pronounced ‘ho-ho-ba) is a native shrub in the Southwestern US deserts. Native Americans treated burns with an antioxidant medicinal ointment made from a paste of the jojoba nut/seed. The oil extracted from the seeds is not a triglyceride, making jojoba oil parallel to human sebum.

Jojoba as a skin care ingredient can be found here at Facelogic Spa in the Peter Thomas Roth Botanical Buffing Beads, Anti-Aging Buffing Beads, and Blemish Buffing Beads. These highly effective, gentle, non-abrasive scrubs work in two ways. First, they help exfoliate surface dead skin cells, allowing active treatment products and moisturizers to penetrate better. Then, the ultra-fine jojoba beads help open clogged pores and emulsify the sebum that contributes to blackheads and whiteheads. The Anti-Aging Buffing Beads also incorporate a Glycolic Acid Complex which clarifies, brightens, and produces youthful looking skin. The Blemish Buffing Beads integrate a Salicylic Acid Complex to clear up acne.  The Botanical Buffing Beads are for all skin types but are especially great as an exfoliant for sensitive skin types.

The Buffing Beads are our top-selling cleansers and I have been incredibly pleased with how long the bottle lasts, making it a great value! I use the Blemish Buffing Beads and my skin is finally clear! Ask your skin care therapist which is best for you.
