The Benefits of Jojoba Oil

glossary_jojoba1
Jojoba (Simmodsia chinensis (Link) Schneider) is a perennial woody shrub native to the semiarid regions of southern Arizona, southern California and northwestern Mexico. Jojoba (pronounced ho-HO-ba) is being cultivated to provide a renewable source of a unique high-quality oil.

What’s interesting about it is that it isn’t actually an oil, but rather what they call a wax ester. Why do we care? Because out of all of the compounds in nature, this wax ester is the most similar to human skin oil (sebum).

The structure of Jojoba oil closely resembles that of your own skin oil (sebum). Jojoba is readily absorbed into the skin, is non-pore clogging and helps balance production of your natural sebum. Jojoba is moisturizing and helps prevent dehydration. It contains linoleic acid, which account for its anti-inflammatory, acne reduction and moisture retention properties.

It also contains myristic acid which is anti-inflammatory. Anti-inflammatory agents help prevent loss of tone and elasticity which can lead to fine line, wrinkles and general signs of aging. Jojoba is great for all skin problems including psoriasis!

Jojoba is also great for hair! It adds moisture and gives your hair extra protection, shine and body. It also cleanses and is revitalizing to hair and scalp!

Our Normal to Dry, Mature, Acne Face Serums, Cleanser, Hair Serum and all Moisturizing Aromatherapy Body Oils contain jojoba oil.
