Jojoba oil is a natural oil that comes from a desert shrub. The oil is used in a variety of health and beauty applications. In recent years, it has become a favoured ingredient in many shampoos, conditioners and skin care products. As the United Kingdom is not a desert nation, jojoba oil must be imported. It can be a little hard to find jojoba oil in the UK unless you know where to look.
Health and Natural Food Stores
Natural food stores sell jojoba oil in the health and beauty section. If you can't find it on the shelf, the store's staff may be able to special order it for you.
UK internet stores that stock jojoba oil include Boots.com, beautyexpress.co.uk, mezza.co.uk and yourhealthfoodstore.co.uk.
If you live in a rural area, try searching for jojoba oil on eBay. You may be able to get the same product available in other stores for a fraction of the price.
Spas and Beauty Salons
Jojoba oil is often used by masseuses as well as during facials at spas. Ask the workers in your local spa if they sell jojoba or jojoba-containing products.
Chemist shops, as well as stores like Boots or Marks & Spencer, can procure jojoba oil for you if they don't have it in stock.
