Of all of the ingredients that we use at OBC, jojoba oil is by far one of the favorites. We use it in everything from our body butter and Nourish Night Balm to our hand soap and body wash. Jojoba oil is an all star ingredient that helps keep your skin moisturized and balanced.
So what is Jojoba Oil?
Contrary to its name, Jojoba oil is not the same as a traditional vegetable oil. It is actually a plant wax that comes from the Simmondsia chinensis plant. Because it is not a true oil, it is extremely stable and resistant to rancidity. The jojoba oil we use is organic and has a beautiful golden hue.
What are the benefits of Jojoba Oil for skin?
Jojoba oil is non-comedogenic meaning that it does not clog your pores. If you are prone to acne, jojoba oil is a great ingredient to use in your skincare routine.
Jojoba oil is balancing. Jojoba oil is similar in composition to our skin’s natural oil or sebum. This makes it a great oil to use to replace oil that might be stripped away from washing your skin. It helps to balance out your skin's sebum production and prevent your skin from overproducing oil.
Jojoba oil is incredibly moisturizing. And because Jojoba oil is non-comedogenic it makes an ideal moisturizer for all skin types. It will leave your skin feeling moisturized and it absorbs quickly
Jojoba oil may help with eczema, psoriasis and other dry skin conditions. It is a great addition to any dry skin routine. Jojoba can help to alleviate symptoms from eczema and psoriasis and may help to calm inflammation.
Jojoba oil is hypoallergenic. Because jojoba oil is a wax and not an oil, it is not a common allergen and is perfect for people who may have allergic reactions to other skincare ingredients.
