Have you heard of Jojoba Oil?
It's one of skincare’s little secrets, and definitely an ingredient you'll want to have in your skincare routine. Once you experience the benefits of using a product containing Jojoba Oil, you’ll never go back. Check out why this naturally occurring oil is so well loved.
What is Jojoba Oil?
This oil is technically a liquid wax and is almost identical to the sebum that your skin produces from its sebaceous glands. It has hardly any odour and is a clear yellowish liquid. Jojoba has a natural affinity for the skin and is a great additive to any product. It is easily absorbable by the skin and can even penetrate the hair shaft to moisturise each strand.
Why does my skin need Jojoba Oil?
As we get older, sebum production slows which leads to dry skin, sagging and fine lines, as well as wrinkles. Due to it being a totally natural oil, it contains a lot of healing vitamins. It is rich in vitamin A, as well as fatty acids omega 6 and 9, all of which contribute towards skin strength and cell renewal. It is also a powerful antioxidant, which helps towards anti-aging.
By using Jojoba Oil, it can mimic our skin's natural oils, doing the same thing as sebum and penetrating the skin at a deep level. This helps our skin's natural healing systems to work at its best, helping to hydrate dry skin, brighten dull skin, rejuvenate itself and keep wrinkles away.
What is it used in and is it suitable for my skin?
It is used in a lot of different products, but the most common is within skin creams. Jojoba Oil easily penetrates the top layers of our skin, heading towards the deep layers of our skin where our cells are healed and regenerated.
Due to its antiviral, anti-inflammatory and hypoallergenic properties, it is also used to ease a large range of skin conditions and can be found in products that help with conditions such as eczema, scars and stretch marks. It is a very naturally calm product as well as being non-irritating, which makes it ideal for all skin types.
