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.

Green Tea is a powerhouse antioxidant which has been shown to significantly promote collagen synthesis. It may also help to slow down the skin glycation process.
Choosing body care products formulated with Green Tea can help minimize the signs of skin aging caused by dietary indiscretions such as excess sugar consumption, which causes skin glycation. What is glycation? Simply put, it is the process of sugar proteins damaging the collagen and elastin in the skin. Too much sugar ages your skin, according to scientific research.
Green Tea is protective.
The EGCG in Green Tea also helps protect against free radicals. Free radicals not only impact your health, but they negatively impact your skin. UV damage, smoke and other pollutants can wreak havoc on your skin, accelerating the aging process and damaging cells. This damage causes collagen and elastin to break down, making you look older, as we just mentioned with the glycation process.
