What is jojoba oil?
Did you know that jojoba oil isn’t really an oil at all, but rather a type of wax melted at room temperature? This silky smooth wax is extracted from the seeds/nuts of the jojoba plant; an evergreen, woody shrub that is native to Mexico, Arizona and California.
Jojoba is the one oil that most closely resembles the skin’s natural sebum, meaning your pores readily drink it up!
Jojoba has no odour, and is a light-coloured oil that can last for years when stored in a cool, dark place!
Let’s move on to the benefits!
Provides deep, yet non-greasy hydration
Because your skin immediately accepts jojoba, since it mimics your skin’s own natural oils, it provides instant deep hydration to parched pores.
Don’t let this fool you though! Jojoba provides the perfect balance of hydration. Your skin will feel nourished and moisturized but never greasy!
Wear it on its own or as a primer under your makeup for the most flawless finish!
Jojoba is popular with troubled, blemish-prone skin too because it has antimicrobial properties and it contains iodine which helps to fight and prevent bacteria in the skin.
When you add jojoba into your ritual, you’ll notice happier, calmer, clearer skin.
Say adios to dandruff
Jojoba is the oil you need if you’re dealing with dandruff and the frustrating associated itch. It will help to eradicate embarrassing flakes while deeply hydrating your scalp and locks for hair that shines and bounces!
You’ll find it in our beard products too, your beard will thank you for the extra love!
Keeps the skin youthful
An array of powerful vitamins and antioxidants, including Vitamin B and skin repairing Vitamin E, help to fight free radicals, smooth out superficial lines and increase suppleness and elasticity in the skin. The result is plumper, smoother, more youthful skin.
You’ll find jojoba oil throughout our products, just sneak a peek at the ingredient list to see if it’s in there!
