Description
Jojoba Oil

100% Pure

Jojoba Oil is an all-natural vegetable oil derived from the jojoba bean. Actually a liquid wax, Jojoba is the carrier of choice for the perfumery industry because it does not oxidize or become rancid. An excellent moisturizer suitable for daily use, Jojoba Oil nourishes and revitalizes skin, relieves sunburn and can be used on hands, nails and hair. Jojoba Oil is remarkably similar to the natural sebum secreted by our own skin. 100% pure.

GUARANTEED 100% NATURAL

Health Notes

Krill Oil

Krill Oil
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

Krill is a shrimp-like crustacean that grows abundantly in the ocean.1 Krill from colder ocean regions is high in EPA and DHA, the same omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil.Krill oil also contains phospholipids and antioxidants such as the carotenoid astaxanthin.2, 3 Animal research has found that a diet high in krill oil can significantly increase antioxidant activity and decrease potentially damaging free radicals in the liver.4

      Comments about NNF Now® Jojoba Oil:

      I use this product in my Shea Butter cream and Hair & Body oil mixtures. It's one of the many ingredients that I used. It is the closest thing to the sebum that is produce by hair follicles in are scalp and the skin on our bodies. I recommend using it by itself or adding to your lotion if you are Mix tress like me.

          Comments about NNF Now® Jojoba Oil:

          Jojoba Oil mixes well with other carrier and essential oils. Jojoba oil should not be used alone if you are using the oil for hair growth. Mix the jojoba oil with rosemary oil, peppermint oil, tea tree oil and lavendar oil for your own herbal hair growth formula. I've suffered hair loss from stress related alopecia and have great growth in the areas effected by alopecia. This does not work over night but if used regulary you'll see great results.

            It smelled unusual, normally jojoba oil has a more pleasant, neutral scent but this smells like it's burnt or rancid.

              Comments about NNF Now® Jojoba Oil:

              I massage jojoba oil into my scalp an hour or two before washing my hair. I brush it through my hair and it helps keep my scalp clean and my hair soft. I use it every night to remove my eye makeup and face makeup. Sometimes I mix a few drops into my cold cream and it makes my skin softer. I then use it by mixing it with water and slather it all over my face. I wake up to the softest skin and I notice that my pores have gotten smaller. It is so gentle and I trust it very much. I've been using it for more than a year now. I love it!
