Jojoba esters (beads) - jojoba oil is extracted from the seeds of the evergreen jojoba shrub. It is actually not an oil but rather a liquid wax. The wax is processed into a solid wax, which is referred to as a jojoba bead or ester. Jojoba beads are used as a natural, biodegradable exfoliant in cosmetic products. Their smooth, spherical shape ensure that they gently exfoliate without creating microscopic tears on the surface of the skin. Microscopic tears created by harsh, abrasive exfoliants may contribute to skin inflammation, premature ageing, breakouts and infection
