Would you love to try a facial oil, but have no idea where to start? Well, if your facial oil contains jojoba oil (pronounced ho-hoba) then you are starting in the right place!
Native to Arizona, Mexico and California, the Jojoba plant is an evergreen, woody shrub. The oil is extracted from the seeds/nuts, but did you know it’s not really an oil at all, but rather a type of melted wax? This is what makes all the difference, and makes jojoba one of your skin’s favourite oils.
This light coloured oil has no odour, and if stored correctly in a cool, dark place, it can last for years!

Moisturises with no Greasy Finish
Most of us like our skin to feel soft and hydrated, but how many of us really want a greasy finish left behind? Well, because jojoba is the only oil that most closely resembles your own skin’s own oils, this won’t happen!
Jojoba oil will simply melt into your skin, providing the perfect balance of moisture, with absolutely no greasy finish. This fast absorbing oil is naturally a favourite among acne sufferers for this reason, but it’s just as excellent for dry skin. Your skin will feel baby soft to the touch!
Fights Inflammation in the Skin
Jojoba oil contains an array of vitamins, minerals, nutrients and antioxidants to feed your skin with top skin-lovin’ ingredients.
It also has powerful anti-microbial properties, and contains iodine which fights and prevents bacteria in the skin. This makes jojoba an excellent oil for treating inflammatory skin conditions such as acne, and if used regularly, you should notice huge improvements in your skin.
Jojoba oil can reduce the appearance of superficial lines as well as increase suppleness thanks to antioxidants and vitamins including Vitamin B and skin repairing Vitamin E. It’s hydrating and free-radical fighting effects will help your skin to stay beautifully youthful.
Can Even Be Used on your Hair
Apart from jojoba oil’s excellent skin benefits, did you know it can even be used on your hair? Jojoba oil helps to hydrate the scalp and eradicate conditions such as dandruff, which causes not only an annoying itch, but embarrassing flakes too. It can be massaged directly into the roots as a hair treatment or applied on the ends to seal and prevent split ends.
