100% Pure Golden Jojoba Oil
What is jojoba oil?
Jojoba (pronounced ho-HO-ba) oil is a botanical extract of the seed of the jojoba tree (Simmondsia chinenis). Technically it is not actually an oil, but rather what is called 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). It is theorized that applying jojoba to the skin can "trick" the skin into thinking it is producing enough oil, thus balancing oil production. The bottom line for acne-prone people is that jojoba oil is non-comedogenic so you can use it without fear.
Benefits of jojoba oil
Provides all day moisturisation – jojoba oil doesn't evaporate like water based moisturizers can.
It is theorized, but not yet proven, that because jojoba oil is so similar to human skin oil, it can "trick" the skin into thinking it has produced enough oil and thus balance oil production.
Very stable – jojoba oil does not become rancid or lose antioxidants even after long periods of storage.
Spreads well and absorbs well.
Drawbacks of jojoba oil
At high amounts (over 6 drops) it can lend a shine to the skin. It is best to be conservative with it during the day (5-6 drops at a time). Moderate usage should actually balance oil production and reduce shine. At night before bed, feel free to use as much as you like.
Uses of jojoba oil
Moisturiser : After dispensing any facial moisturizer onto your palm, try adding 5-6 drops of jojoba oil to make it into a super-moisturizer. Flakiness will subside and the moisturizer will have an improved feel on your skin.
Baby care: Jojoba oil is very gentle and can be used on both adult and baby.
Make-up remover : Since jojoba oil is not an eye irritant, nor allergenic, you can use it to remove eye makeup. It also easily removes foundation, blush, and lipstick.
Lip balm: Apply a few drops onto your finger and apply to your lips for an extra-light alternative to lip balm
Hair conditioner: You can mix a few drops of jojoba oil into your current conditioner or use jojoba oil on its own in the shower. You can also add it to damp hair before drying. Or, you can add it to dry hair to promote shine. Jojoba oil also moisturizes the scalp, helping prevent dandruff.
Massage oil – Jojoba oil is perhaps the best massage oil on earth. A little goes a long way and for people with body acne is a welcome non-comedogenic option. Note: The skin irritation which sometimes comes with massage may still promote breakouts.
* Do not store jojoba oil in the shower. It can develop mold if it is stored in a humid and warm place. Instead, be sure to store jojoba oil in a cool, dry place and it will last for many years.
