The JOJOBA POLISH is not any ordinary physical exfoliant...It has multiple talents to cleanse and moisturize, while it gently polishes and revitalizes skin...leaving skin silky, smooth, and vibrant. Tiny natural jojoba beads gently remove dead cells and aid in the unclogging of pores, diligently refining to promote the removal of dirt and oil from the skin's surface.
Pau d'Arco Bark lends a hand by calming, strengthening, and protecting the skin. Pau d'Arco Bark is an unusual botanical extract from the Taheebo Tree, native to South America, with an active molecular constituent that includes Lapachol, Quercetin and Flavonoids. Testing has shown these components have anti-inflammatory and immune-support properties, boost cellular oxygen, and are anti-microbial and anti-fungal. This makes Pau D'Arco Bark the perfect ingredient for healing inflamed, sensitive skin while protecting it from further damage.
Once the skin is clean and detoxified, the Rose Hip Oil jumps into action, moisturizing and soothing the skin back to stasis, leaving it feeling relieved and revitalized. Plenipotentiary Organic Rose Hip Fruit Oil, which comes from a rose that grows in the Andes Mountains, is unique in that contrary to most other plants, it contains retinol, a relative of Vitamin A which benefits acne prone skin. Rose Hip Fruit Oil also has high levels of Vitamin C and minerals, building your skin's immune system and tolerance to daily abuse. High essential fatty acid levels make Rose Hip Fruit Oil one of most exquisitely perfect oils for moisturizing and soothing dry skin. It's also an excellent combatant against various compromised skin challenges like dermatitis, eczema, and scarring.
These three key ingredients in our JOJOBA POLISH work flawlessly together creating the ultimate anti-age triple tag-team for sensitive skin!
Regular use of JOJOBA POLISH will repair, revitalize, and refine skin, while greatly reducing clogged pores and dead skin... keeping skin smooth, soothed, and properly moisturized.

The harmful effects of outdoor and indoor environments (air pollution, UVA/UVB, chemicals, etc.) are extensive. People that live in areas where there is more or less exposure to sun can affect their Circadian Rhythm of cell renewal. Effects on the skin include dryness, premature aging, skin rashes, eczema, poor/slow healing, and acne.
A certain percentage of people have reactions to various stimuli (such as natural/artificial compounds, animals, greenery, foods, cleaning agents). If they come into contact with these stimuli, they can experience a range of mild to harsh skin reactions, or "allergic sensitization". Conditions such as dermatitis and eczema can be the outcome of these reactions.
Those dealing with health challenges frequently have very sensitive skin, from both the condition itself and the medications to treat it. Whether Viral (ex: Shingles or Roseola); Gastric(ex: Celiac or Crohn’s); Motor Neuron(ex: Lou Gehrig’s or Parkinson’s); Metabolic(ex:Thyroid or Diabetes); Cancer; Auto-immune(ex: Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Scleroderma)--- all of these can cause the skin to experience one or more of the following conditions: dry, itchy, inflamed, irritated, neuropathy, hyper-pigmented, photosensitive, rashes, blisters and sores.
A skin condition that results from a sensitivity due to a likely a combination of factors, one being the over-application of topicals containing irritants, usually on a daily basis. Regular exfoliation using acids or manual means can disrupt or thin the skin barrier and allow for deeper penetration of these irritants, accelerating this process even more.
Starting last week I had a TERRIBLE eczema breakout-worst I've ever had, on my hands, arms, and groin and between my thighs. It woke me up itching several nights in a row and the plantae wash wasn't really helping. So two mornings ago I started using the jojoba polish (which is what I initially used on my face for my eczema and it was awesome). This is the 2nd time this little product has saved me from misery and I just feel like its a bit of an unsung hero. I am not an esthetician, but I've been experimenting with my skin and the results are unreal. Between it kicking my poison oak out several weeks ago, the initial face-save and now, I officially don't ever want to be without this product!
The Plantae Foaming Wash and Jojoba Polish are awesome. They leave the skin feeling fresh, moist and smooth.
I was given a small sample of Tecniche products. The Plantae Foaming Wash and Jojoba Polish are awesome. They leave the skin feeling fresh, moist and smooth. The next step was using the Tecniche Restore Serum and Embryol Moisture. I love the way it goes on the skin and it was very hydrating.
