The Magic Behind Jojoba Oil
November 28, 2021
Our skincare products are enriched with numerous nourishing ingredients. One of those magic ingredients is the therapeutic and powerful jojoba oil. Countless remedies use that unique organic substance for its healing abilities, anti-bacterial properties and so much more. That is why scientists and other skincare professionals favor jojoba oil as a key ingredient. But what other benefits does that special oil have? And what makes it so powerful? Take a look at the smoothest player in town!
Jojoba Oil and Its Origin
For generations, jojoba oil has been used as a natural, organically produced remedy. The O’odham Native American tribe used it as an ointment for treating wounds. So, its benefits for the skin have been around for quite some time. It is produced from the seed of the Simmondsia Chinensis plant, a shrub native to the Southwestern United States and northwestern Mexico.
Its unique composition gives it an extremely long and stable shelf-life and remarkable ability to resist high temperatures. The jojoba plant is a tough, slow-growing plant that thrives in harsh desert environments, producing a seed that is 50% oil. Though the plant is difficult to cultivate, the fields of cosmetics and medicine use the oil for all its amazing qualities. It’s used in shampoos, creams, moisturizers, or directly to the skin.
Jojoba Oil and Your Skin
Jojoba oil has antibacterial properties and can be applied directly to treat chapped skin, acne, psoriasis, sunburn, inflammations, dryness, etc. It helps reinvigorate hair growth and may be applied topically. It’s extremely vitamin-rich and helps soothe the skin. But that’s not all, it nourishes and unclogs hair follicles, promoting hair growth, thickness, and strength (for a thicker beard).
What sets it apart and elevates it into a league of its own is that jojoba oil is not technically an oil. It’s actually a type of wax or a wax ester. It’s a non-comedogenic botanical substance. That is, its composition is very close to the sebum our skin produces naturally. Therefore, the oil complements your natural sebum and balances the body’s natural sebum cover. It’s much less likely to clog the skin, hydrating more effectively than other oils.
Other Oils and Your Skin
True, jojoba oil is the reigning player, but there are other oils that your skin could benefit from. There are also coconut oil, safflower oil, almond oil, rosehip oil, to name only a few. Particle, for instance, combines Squalane Oil in its face cream for men. The oil has powerful anti-aging properties. Other oils that benefit from jojoba oil’s waxiness are castor oil, argan oil, and essentially all-natural substances. These combinations create extremely powerful and beneficial formulas. These mixtures help restore sebum balance, ensure the skin remains hydrated, happy, and protected.
Jojoba Oil to the Rescue
There is a wide selection of organic oils out there. Particle products, for instance, use argan oil, avocado, apricot, hemp, and castor, and many others. They all have a variety of unique features, soothing and smoothing the skin, softening and strengthening hair, and adding sheen and shine to both. Jojoba oil stands out among these for its unique composition which allows it to naturally mimic skin sebum.
