Jojoba oil comes from the seed of the Jojoba plant and is a common ingredient in skin care products, and a main ingredient in many of our Mountain Body products. Jojoba oil is actually a liquefied form of the vegetable wax produced by the Jojoba seed. Jojoba is highly effective and has an array of vital uses.
What Makes Jojoba So Great For My Skin?
Jojoba has a close similarity to Sebum, our body’s natural secretion that protects the skin from dehydration and water penetration. When the body produces too much, or not enough Sebum, the skin can become oily. Because of this close similarity, Jojoba is used to help balance and regulate sebum production. It leaves the skin feeling balanced, healthy and rejuvenated without leaving one feeling oily or greasy.
Jojoba oil moisturizes skin without clogging pores and also kills some forms of bacteria (can you say acne treatment?)
How do I use Jojoba?
Jojoba can be used as to moisturize and balance just about any part of your body, even your face! Its close proximity to your natural skin oil makes it easily absorbed and rarely causes an allergic reaction.
Body: Jojoba oil is an excellent whole body after-shower oil. It will leave you feeling replenished and moisturized, but not greasy. You can also pour it into your bath as bath oil!
The anti-inflammatory properties of Jojoba oil make it a natural remedy for eczema and psoriasis. It can also be used to treat sunburns and dry chapped lips.
Face: Jojoba oil can be used as a facial moisturizer for all skin types because of its balancing properties. Whether you are dry and dehydrated like the desert or wiping oil from your face, Jojoba is sure to help. It has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties as well, making it useful to those struggling with acne. Use it alone, or mix a few drops in with your regular moisturizer.
Hair: Dull, frizzy, dehydrated hair? No problem use Jojoba as a deep conditioner, leave in over night for extra conditioning! It is also great for the scalp, helping to moisturize. It will even help clear dandruff.
