Balances the skin’s oil production, useful for both oily and dry skin. Similar to our own natural skin oil sebum, easily absorbed, without blocking pores.
Jojoba oil is super-hydrating, nutrient dense oil is used to:
• Hydrate dry skin • Prevent premature aging of the skin
• Smooth fine lines and wrinkles • Protect against sun damage
• Help skin complaints including acne vulgarias, acne rosacia, psoriasis, eczema
• As a carrier oil for other skincare ingredients. Jojoba wax, which is most commonly referred to as jojoba oil, has a molecular structure very similar to human sebum, which is why it is very hydrating for the skin.
It replenishes the sebum levels that naturally deplete with age and which results in skin become dry and wrinkled. So regular use of jojoba and other oils and butters can replace this depletion and be ‘anti-aging’. The hydrating nature of jojoba oil also helps protect the skin barrier, which protects the skin from environmental damage including UV light. As well as being very hydrating, jojoba is also suitable for congested skin, skin that is prone to blemishes and/or inflammation. This is because jojoba is non-comedogenic (doesn’t block pores). It actually helps to get rid of excess sebum that gathers round hair follicles and is associated with blemishes and acne. Due to the fatty-acid make up of jojoba oil, it penetrates deep into the layers of skin. And it can take other oils with it, so is great when used as a carrier oil for other ingredients, such as butters, flower waters and essential oils. It is also very stable so can help protect other less-stable ingredients, preventing premature-oxidation of a skincare product.
Suggestions for use: Massage on the skin to moisturise, nourish and protect. Can be used as a carrier oil for other ingredients.
Do not take internally. Patch test before use. Discontinue use if skin irritation occurs.
