Just How Good Is Jojoba Oil for Skin?

Share this post

The hunt for beautiful skin can seem like a never-ending one with the plethora of beauty oils on the market. With so many different products on offer, finding the right beauty oil can be tricky. While the search can sound daunting, and expensive, at first glance, we may have just found your new best friend… Jojoba oil!

Jojoba is a popular ingredient in skincare products because it can help fight acne by mimicking sebum, the natural oils produced by your body. Jojoba oil helps to cleanse your skin’s pores and stop the build-up of grease and dead skin cells which can cause breakouts.

While it’s native to the semi-arid regions of southern Arizona, Southern California and northwestern Mexico, Jojoba is also cultivated in the Rajasthan area of India. It’s especially valued because the shrub is quick growing so it provides a sustainable, renewable source of high-quality oil.

We’re going to show you just why Jojoba oil is also known as ‘liquid gold’!

What is Jojoba oil? 

Jojoba oil is a natural cosmetic ingredient that comes from the seed of Chinensis plants. A drought-resistant shrub native to southern Arizona, California, and Mexico, it also grows in the dry regions of Rajasthan and Gujarat. 

Native Americans have used jojoba oil for centuries for its many healing properties. More recently, modern beauty products have come to appreciate the effects of Jojoba oil. 

Technically, Jojoba oil isn’t actually an oil at all! Rather, it’s a wax ester. This means that jojoba ‘oil’ has the same make up as natural sebum and can cleanse skin without clogging pores or exacerbating acne. It also helps balance your skin’s oil and doesn’t leave a greasy feeling, which some oils can. 

The Many Skin Benefits Of Jojoba Oil

Jojoba Oil Is Vitamin-Rich 

The Vitamin E, C and B in this product work to keep your skin hydrated. They do this by protecting the natural oils that are essential for maintaining healthy looking skin while also providing a radiant glow.

We use Jojoba Oil in our Naira Under Eye Cream to help erase dark circles under your eyes and leave you with radiant skin.  

Jojoba Oil Promotes Deep-Hydration 

This deeply hydrating oil quickly absorbs into the skin, leaving it feeling calm and nourished. It is lightweight and easily absorbed, perfect to reapply during the day or just before applying makeup!

With regular use of Jojoba Oil, your skin will begin to feel softer and you’ll notice a natural glow. Jojoba Oil is one of the star ingredients in our Aahana Rich Moisturising Cream. This luxurious and rich cream absorbs quickly and moisturises deep into the layers of your skin to help keep it youthful and vibrant. 

Jojoba Oil Offers Long-lasting Moisturisation

Jojoba Oil doesn’t evaporate like water-based moisturisers and studies have shown that this can provide significant additional moisture to the skin for hours at a time. This is perfect if you have dry skin, or for use in the harsher winter when your skin could use some extra love! 

Jojoba Oil Helps You To Age Gracefully 

We all want to maintain a healthy glow which is where Jojoba oil comes in. Jojoba Oil is a perfect moisturizer that can help slow down the appearance of ageing. It helps fade fine lines, wrinkles, and superficial facial lines. 

Dermatological tests have shown that Jojoba oil increases skin suppleness and helps your skin maintain a youthful appearance. Continued use of jojoba oil resulted in reducing superficially visible facial creases or folds over time!

If anti-ageing is important for you, try our Navya Anti-Ageing Cream containing Jojoba Oil. This luxurious, fast-absorbing night cream makes the skin look radiant and plump while smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles!

Jojoba Oil Is Perfect For Sensitive Skin 

Jojoba Oil is a natural, plant-based oil that does not clog pores and can provide relief to those suffering from psoriasis or eczema. Applied daily, Jojoba Oil provides nourishment for the skin without drying it out!

Jojoba Oil Is Soothing For Dry-Skin 

Jojoba oil is a great way to keep your skin calm and comfortable. It not only boasts anti-inflammatory properties that help tame chafing and chapping but also has Vitamin E and B complexes which can reduce the effects of eczema and rosacea also.

Jojoba Oil Is Non-Acnegenic

Jojoba oil is a godsend for those who struggle with oily skin and acne. It balances your skin’s oils, which in turn prevents breakouts or other problems that come from overproducing sebum on your face. Jojoba also naturally deters microbes so you don’t have to be afraid to touch things!

If you struggle with acne scars and other blemishes then our Ojas Anti-Blemish Cream might just be what you need. With Jojoba Oil included, this all-in-one night time miracle helps reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation, acne scars, spots and blemishes.

Jojoba Oil Is Sunburn-Friendly 

Jojoba Oil is a natural and gentle moisturiser. It soothes sunburns by helping to reduce the chances of peeling while providing hydration for dehydrated skin cells.

Can you use Jojoba oil on your hair? 

Yes! Jojoba oil is a popular hair care product because it is rich in vitamins and minerals that nourish the scalp, such as vitamin E, C, and B. When used as part of your regular hair regimen, Jojoba can help strengthen brittle strands while reducing dryness which promotes healthier-looking locks with less breakage or split ends. It also moisturises and may be helpful for dandruff sufferers.
