A miracle ingredient for dry skin, Jojoba oil (often pronounced ho-ho-ba) is a wonderful addition to include in your skincare routine.
Let’s explore why we love it, and why you should love it too!
What exactly is Jojoba Oil?
Jojoba is technically classed a liquid wax, however, it’s commonly known as an oil in the skincare world. This unique difference is one of the reasons why jojoba is so beneficial to your skin. The wax is a gorgeous gold liquid at room temperature - and the reason why many will refer to it as an oil!
Jojoba wax is derived from the seeds of the jojoba plant, originating from North America. What's unique about the wax from the jojoba seed is that it is very similar to our skin's natural oil (aka sebum), and so your body will readily absorb this ingredient deep within, to hydrate and nourish from the inside-out.
What are the benefits?
Fantastic in many natural skin and haircare formulations, jojoba oil is suited to most skin types as it’s such an adaptable, gentle ingredient that will truly calm the skin from within.
It creates a protective barrier on the skin, providing defence from environmental stressors (such as pollution) and tackling dry skin conditions such as eczema. It’s very soothing on acne-prone complexions and also benefits from being antibacterial and non-comedogenic, meaning it’s not going to block your pores.
As jojoba oil is almost identical to your skin's natural sebum, it can help to harmonise your skin's natural oil production by balancing everything out. This is super beneficial if you suffer from regular breakouts, as this can often be due to an imbalance in your skin's natural oil.
Jojoba oil is jam-packed with nutrients, including vitamins A, D and E, so replenishing your skin with this liquid gold will promote a rejuvenated, refreshed complexion. With the addition of Omega- 3 and Omega-9, you’ll be on your way to that dewy, plump glow in no time!
