#IngredientSpotliht – Jojoba Oil

Serving as a remedy to acne, extreme dryness and numerous other skin conditions, what can we say? Jojoba Oil is nature’s best kept secret! Native to North America, Jojoba oil produced in the seed of the Simmondsia chinensis plant and boasts a litany of benefits for both skin and hair!

Read on to learn more about this miracle ingredient that is a key ingredient in our range of organic makeup, and how beneficial it is to include in our beauty routine!

1. Deep Hydration & Long-Lasting Moisturization

Thanks to its light texture, Jojoba oil is easily absorbed into skin and is able to penetrate deeper into the skin’s layers to soften and moisturize – creating a radiant glow from within. Jojoba oil, along with most facial oils, is able to provide a longer-lasting barrier against moisture loss as it does not evaporate off the skin and thus seals the moisture into the skin for a longer time.

2. Nourishing & Anti-Aging

Jojoba is chock full of Vitamin E and B, as well as antioxidants and minerals that nourish and protect the skin. Thanks to its moisturizing abilities, Jojoba can also help to reduce the appearance of aging, and smoothe out fine lines and wrinkles through encouraging healthy collagen production.

3. Non Greasy & Gentle on Acne-Prone Skin 

Because Jojoba Oil is very similar to our own skin oils in terms of texture, it penetrates our skin easily without clogging our pores or leaving a greasy residue. This similarity to our own skin oils also serves to trick our skin into thinking it has produced enough sebum and thus helps to regulate sebum production, without triggering acne or other skin problems. Jojoba also has natural anti-bacterial properties and can help to prevent the outbreak of acne.

4. Soothes Dryness & Inflammation

Jojoba Oil is an anti-inflammatory which helps to repair and soothe swelling in the skin and reduce redness caused by dryness, and conditions such as eczema and rosacea – keeping the skin feeling comfortable and calm.
