The Benefits of Jojoba Oil
You may have noticed that we use Jojoba Seed Oil as one of our ingredients in several products. Jojoba Seed Oil has many skin care benefits. Why is Jojoba good for the skin? Let's learn more about this amazing ingredient.
What is Jojoba Seed Oil
First of all, the name Jojoba Oil is a little bit misleading. Jojoba Oil is not really
an oil in the traditional sense. It is actually a wax ester. In science speak, a wax ester is an ester of a fatty acid and a fatty alcohol. There are many naturally occurring wax esters. Beeswax, for example, is comprised of around 75% wax esters. Jojoba Seed Oil is 97% wax esters.
What makes the wax esters of Jojoba Seed Oil unique?
What is really unique about the wax esters in Jojoba Seed Oil is that they are identical to your skin's own sebum. Science shows us that human sebum and the Jojoba wax esters have an identical double bond. This allows the Jojoba Seed Oil to deeply penetrate the pores to work their magic.
Jojoba Oil Skin Benefits
- For those with oily skin, the Jojoba Oil is able to draw out excess sebum. It almost "tricks" the skin, so it does not produce more. Jojoba Oil, in fact, is often used to help conquer skin breakouts because it has a balancing effect on sebum production.
- For those with dry skin, Jojoba Oil nourishes and helps soften the skin.
- For those with sensitive skin, Jojoba Oil has soothing benefits, helping to calm the side effects of everything from Eczema to chapped lips.
- For those with skin that is beginning to show the visible signs of aging, Jojoba Oil may offer skin regenerating properties because it is able to penetrate so deeply.
Jojoba Oil is underrated.
There are so many buzzwords and "it" ingredients trending in the beauty and skin care industry that trusty, proven ingredients are often overlooked. Jojoba is one of them. It really is such an important ingredient with a multitude of skin benefits.

Let's talk about another case of skin care confusion. Most people think that dry skin and dehydrated skin are the same thing. In fact, when shopping for skin care products, people with dehydrated skin often buy products designed for dry skin and vice versa. The problem? Dry skin and dehydrated skin often need to be treated in very different ways.
Just how is dry skin different from dehydrated skin? Read on and find out!
On the surface, dry skin and dehydrated skin tend to feel the same. They both feel -- well -- dry. Dry skin is a skin type, much like oily or combination skin. Dehydrated skin, however, is a skin condition.
Dry and dehydrated skin are both lacking something.
This is where the main difference comes in to play. Dry skin is lacking oil. Dehydrated skin is lacking water. Understanding which is missing is key to selecting the right skin care products.
Let's call it Face Washing 101. It may seem like a no-brainer, but are you washing your face properly? Maybe not.
Today, we're sharing how to wash your face the correct way.
1. Before you even think of touching your face, wash your hands.
So many of us overlook this step, but it is crucial. If you just wet your hands and apply cleanser, you will be rubbing bacteria and dirt onto your skin. By doing so, your pores may become clogged and breakouts may occur. Wash your hands thoroughly and then apply your facial care.

We've all heard about the "Freshman 15." I gained about 7 pounds freshman year.

I drank soda pop instead of water. I made Pop Tarts in my dorm room and ordered pizza regularly. Eat as many fresh, whole foods as you can and drink lots of water. Your skin will benefit from this. I recommend eating lots of
