The Ultimate Guide to Harnessing Jojoba Oil's Beauty Benefits

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Jojoba oil, pronounced as “huh-HO-ba” is a popular carrier oil for both skin and hair care. The oil is cold-pressed from the seed of the Simmondsia chinensis plant, a small evergreen shrub that is native to parts of the southwestern U.S. and northwestern Mexico. The entire jojoba plant, including the seeds and seed oil, has been used by Indigenous peoples in these regions for generations as a source of food and topical treatment for a variety of disorders. The word ‘jojoba’ comes from the word Hohowi, the name given to the seeds/beans by the O'odham people. Jojoba is actually a liquid wax ester, rather than a true lipid-based oil, and more closely resembles the sebum (combination of oil & wax) produced by our own skin than most other carrier oils. This unique structure makes jojoba ideal for all skin types, including oily, acne-prone or combination skin. Because jojoba isn’t a lipid-based product it has a much longer shelf-life than most other carrier oils (upwards of 3 years rather than the standard 1-2 years), and using it in products like massage oils, skin serums, salves and creams actually extends the shelf-life of those products as well. Incredibly rich in vitamins and minerals, jojoba oil is known for its hydrating, antioxidant and soothing properties. It is often found in commercial skin care products, particularly those oriented towards mature skin, because of its ability to protect the skin from damage and encourage elasticity. Learn more about all the benefits of using jojoba oil for skin health, as well as learn easy tips for incorporating the carrier oil into your skin care routine. Benefits of Jojoba Oil

Jojoba oil benefits for the skin

  • It’s low-comedogenic: Jojoba has a comedogenic rating of 2, meaning it is unlikely to clog pores. The sebum-like structure of the carrier oil makes jojoba a great choice for all skin types, including acne prone and combination skin. Because it so closely resembles the sebum produced by our skin jojoba oil actually has a balancing effect on our skin’s oil production.
  • It’s hypoallergenic: Jojoba oil is a top choice for anyone who has extremely sensitive or easily irritated skin.
  • It’s incredibly moisturizing: Jojoba oil is considered to be a humectant substance, meaning it actually attracts water to the top layer of the skin to help it stay hydrated.  Applying jojoba to slightly damp skin (like after a shower) helps to lock in that extra moisture, leaving skin feeling soft and plump all day long.
  • It’s soothing and protecting: Jojoba oil is rich in vitamin E, an antioxidant vitamin that helps protect skin from damage due exposure, including wind, sun and other irritatnts
  • It’s toning: The combination of jojoba oil’s moisturizing properties and high vitamin E content supports skin elasticity and integrity, leaving the skin looking smooth and vibrant.

Jojoba oil benefits for hair

  • It’s wonderfully moisturizing: Just like the humectant properties attract moisture to keep our skin feeling soft, jojoba oil is hydrating to the hair and scalp as well. Massage a few drops into damp, clean hair like a leave-in conditioner to keep hair feeling silky soft and tame excess frizz.
  • It’s rich in vitamins and minerals: In addition to being rich in Vitamin E, jojoba is an excellent source of copper and zinc, two nutrients that are important for hair growth
  • Protects from heat damage: Jojoba oil creates a protective layer around hair that minimizes damage from heating/styling tools. Massage a few drops into clean, damp hair before drying/styling.

How to use jojoba oil

  • As a facial serum: Use by itself, or blend with a bit of rosehip or argan oil for a moisturizing and toning facial serum. For very sensitive, oily or acne-prone skin, try blending with a lighter oil like grapeseed or apricot kernel. Massage a few drops into clean, damp skin morning and evening. Add your favorite essential oils for facial care, including geranium, rose or neroli.
  • As a body oil: Use as-is for sensitive skin, or combine with a heavier oil like sesame or coconut for full-body application.
  • As a makeup remover: Apply a few drops to a cotton ball and use to wipe away makeup before washing your face.
  • As a leave-in conditioner: Massage a few drops into clean, damp hair before drying or styling to nourish hair and tame frizz.
  • As an ingredient in DIY salves and creams: Add shelf-life to your homemade skin care products by using jojoba as the oil base for skin creams and salves.
  • As a cuticle oil: Apply 1-2 drops per nail and massage into cuticles.
