We all know it; we all love it. But just why is it sooo good??
Derived from the seeds of a plant shrub native to Mexico 🇲🇽, jojoba oil is made up of almost all PURE waxes and vitamins, including vitamin E. Commonly used in face and hair products, it is naturally healing and helps to prevent damage from those harmful free radicals.
So what else does it do? How does it work so well for us and our skin? Let's take a look...
Well interestingly, it's probably the one ingredient that is very similar to the actual oils produced by our skin and this is what makes it suitable for all skin types, including sensitive and acne prone skin. It also helps to balance the oil production in dry and oily skin, which then reduces excess sebum and prevents dryness. Genius, right?👌
As a deep moisturiser, jojoba oil is an excellent emollient, meaning it helps to seal in moisture and prevent water loss from the skin. It creates a protective barrier that keeps the skin hydrated, soft, and supple. Here's a few more reasons why our favourite oil is such a skincare essential:
○ Non-Comedogenic:✨Jojoba oil has a low comedogenic rating, meaning it's less likely to clog pores and cause acne or breakouts. This makes it a great choice for those with acne-prone or sensitive skin.
○ Antioxidant Properties: ✨It contains natural antioxidants, such as vitamins E and B-complex, which can help protect the skin from damage caused by UV radiation and environmental pollutants.
○ Anti-Inflammatory: ✨Jojoba oil has anti-inflammatory properties that can help soothe irritated skin, reduce redness, and alleviate symptoms of skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis.
○ Gentle Exfoliator: ✨contains natural enzymes that can help break down dead skin cells, promoting a smoother and more even complexion.
Other reasons include jojoba oils versatile usage in a range of skincare applications, including moisturiser, make-up remover and as an ingredient in other products. With a long shelf life it's a practical choice (up to 2 years when fresh)!
Choosing products that contain high quality jojoba that is pure, unrefined and cold-pressed will help to retain all of these amazing benefits. Here are some of the #cheorganics products that contain jojoba:
