Ingredient Spotlight -  Demystifying Jojoba oil

We call it the multi-tasker! Jojoba oil – an ingredient that has a relentless presence in natural skincare and make up product labels, and has become a household name over the last decade. Since there is plenty of evidence supporting the use of pure jojoba oil as a remedy for acne, dry skin, and countless other skin conditions, we wouldn’t leave this super ingredient out of the mix for our skincare line. But before that, we deep dive on the source and the benefits of jojoba oil.


What is Jojoba Oil?
Jojoba oil is extracted from the seeds of the Simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) plant. In reality, it is an oil-like wax but since is appears as an oil, it is assumed to be one. This is a really stable natural ingredient that has a long shelf life and is resistant to high temperatures. It was in 1970s that manufacturers started adding jojoba oil to food and cosmetics tapping on its versatility.

Top Five Benefits of Jojoba Oil
The multifaceted jojoba oil has a number of benefits that supports skincare

  1. Antioxidant - Jojoba oil is rich in the natural form of Vitamin E. This means that products that are made from jojoba oil can help your skin fight oxidative stress caused by exposure to pollutants and toxins.
  2. Hypoallergenic – In simple terms, jojoba oil does not cause irritation to the skin and has extremely low chances of causing allergy. This is primarily because it is a wax and not an oil, ensuring that skin does not absorb colossal quantities of it.
  3. Promotes Collagen – Jojoba oil is a catalyst in the production of collagen in the human body, which in turn is an essential protein that gives structure to the skin. An optimum amount of collagen in the body reduces formation of wrinkles.
  4. Healing – The oil promotes natural healing of the skin. This means decrease in dryness, flaking, itching, and related symptoms. It also soothes burns and acne.
  5. Moisturizing – Jojoba oil seals the seal the top layer of the skin with a protective barrier to keep it from losing moisture. This also helps in protection against bacterial infections, acne, and dandruff.
