6 Reasons Why You Should be Using Jojoba Oil

Jojoba, or pronounced ‘ho-ho-ba’, is an oil that you’ve probably see before. It is technically an odourless wax that is extracted from the Jojoba plant, but has an oil-like texture. This wax absorbs easily because it mimics the natural sebum of our skin, and also regulates it.

As we age this sebum production begins to decrease, meaning fine lines, dry skin and sagging starts to take over. That’s where Jojoba’s skin nourishing properties come in to play – leaving it dewy and non-oily!

Still need convincing? Here are 6 reasons why you should incorporate Jojoba Oil in your routine:


1.Moisture, moisture and more

Jojoba oil is a humectant ingredient, this means that it works plenty hard to seal your skin with a protective barrier. For those suffering from dry skin, Jojoba oil can be an excellent way to up those moisture levels without looking oily!

The Jojoba Company Absolute Serum targets slackening skin with its anti-ageing, natural formula that works to minimise visible lines and wrinkles. Harnessing the powers of Pure Australian Jojoba, this lightweight, silky serum helps to restore a soft, supple and youthful-looking complexion.

2. Antibacterial and an Antioxidant 

Jojoba oil contains antimicrobial and antifungal properties. While it may not necessarily kill every type of bacteria, it destroys some varieties especially those that can cause candida, salmonella and similar.

Does your skin love Vitamin E? Jojoba oil contains natural forms of vitamin E that serve as an antioxidant. This means that jojoba oil can help your skin fight oxidative stress  that is caused by everyday exposure to pollutants as well as other toxic impurities.

3. Contains Vitamin B Complex

Jojoba Oil also contains Vitamin B that act as antioxidants too. Helping the body fight off free radicals and cell damage, Vitamin B also helps our body to maintain hormonal balance naturally. Vitamin B5 aids in treating skin reactions from radiation therapy and can speeded up wound healing. So how does this help your skin? The Vitamin B5 benefit that you can get from Jojoba Oil, keeps your skin free from infection and bacteria while helping it to heal.

4. Fab for the body!
Jojoba Oil works beyond just for your face. An ingredient often found in body oils, Jojoba Oil does not clog pores and is a great solution for those that are prone to back-ne or body acne. The natural properties of this oil make it highly absorbent and soothing – perfect for moisturising your entire body or as a massage oil. As Jojoba Oil is also known for its skin renewing properties, many have suggested that it can also help to reduce cellulite.

5. And for the hair
Your skin loves Jojoba Oil but wait till you try it on your hair! Often used as a soothing hair treatment, Jojoba Oil is also excellent to give your hair a bit of a shine. As simple as adding a few drops in your regular conditioner or applying to damp hair after a shower!

6. Sunburn healer
Spent a bit too much time in the sun? Jojoba Oil is often seen as an ingredient in some natural sunscreen products. Vitamin E when combined with other antioxidants can help protect the skin from sun damage – Jojoba Oil is a perfect mix of both!
