Desert Essence – Jojoba Oil

Discover the Benefits of Jojoba Oil

Known as a miracle oil in the skin and hair care world, jojoba oil is an ingredient that is used extensively in the cosmetics industry, and for very good reasons. Jojoba oil (pronounced ho-ho-ha) is not actually an oil, but a liquid wax distilled from the seeds of the jojoba plant. It is rich in natural fats and closely resembles human sebum, making it an invaluable beauty ingredient.

Jojoba oil can be applied anywhere on the body and has a multitude of uses. It is a natural emollient that is quickly absorbed, leaving your skin supple and hydrated. It will also get rid of any flaky, dry areas.

The idea of putting oil onto your face may sound terrifying, but natural oils can work wonders on your skin. Jojoba oil has a very similar molecular structure to the sebum produced by your skin,and applying it to your face will actually help regulate oil production. Jojoba oil will also clear out any clogged pores and effectively help fight breakouts.

Due to its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, jojoba oil can help treat skin conditions like psoriasis, sunburned or chapped skin, and even eczema. Its healing and protective properties also make it effective at minimizing scars and stretchmarks.

You can even use jojoba oil on your hair and scalp. It will keep your scalp hydrated and supple, aiding with hair growth. Jojoba oil’s light texture makes it perfect for adding shine and hydration to hair, without weighing it down.
