What is jojoba oil?

The jojoba plant is a hearty, perennial plant that grows in North America. It can grow in harsh and unforgiving climates that most plants wouldn't survive in, making it a more sustainable ingredient!

The nut of the jojoba plant can be made into an oil. Jojoba is light enough to often used be as the 'carrier oil' to be used with other essential oils in skincare. There’s plenty of evidence supporting the use of pure jojoba oil as a remedy for acne, dry skin, and countless other skin conditions.

1. It’s noncomedogenic

Although jojoba oil is a botanical substance, its makeup is so similar to the oil (sebum) your body naturally produces that your skin can’t tell the difference and it is absorbed incredibly effectively. Because the skin welcomes jojoba so much, it reduces the break out of spots or acne

2. It’s moisturizing

Jojoba oil is a humectant ingredient. This means that it works to seal your skin with a protective barrier to keep it from losing moisture. This may help prevent bacterial infections, acne, and dandruff from forming.

3. It’s antibacterial

Jojoba oil contains antimicrobial and antifungal properties. Although jojoba oil doesn’t kill all bacterial or fungal species, it does kill certain bacteria and fungi that can cause salmonella, an E. coli infection, and candida.

4. It’s an antioxidant

Jojoba oil contains natural forms of vitamin E. This vitamin works with your skin as an antioxidant. so Jojoba helps to fight oxidative stress caused by pollutants and other toxins that are simply a part of our day to day life

5. It’s hypoallergenic

It's pretty rare to have a reaction to jojoba, as on a molecular level, jojoba oil is a wax. Although it can be absorbed into your skin, its waxy nature allows it to create a soothing seal on the surface.

6. It helps control sebum production

Jojoba oil regulates sebum production because it’s so similar to the sebum that your body produces naturally.

When you put jojoba oil on your skin, your skin is soothed and moisturised. This sends a signal to your hair and sweat follicles that your skin doesn’t need additional sebum for hydration.

This keeps skin from looking oily and helps prevent acne caused by clogged pores. So even though you are using the oil to cleanse, it re balances your natural oils
