Jojoba oil is in almost all Angelico Serums as it has myriad properties. I discovered it when I first had babies as it works miracles on nappy rash. I swiftly got rid of the thick gloopy cream that other young mothers were encapsulating their babies bottoms with, innocently sealing in moisture which resulted in sore bottoms. I used jojoba oil instead which let the delicate baby skin breath whilst keeping it clean and bacteria free. The results were remarkable.
