Jojoba oil is the wax contained in the seed of Jojoba, also known as wild hazelnut, which grows in Latin America. One of the best known and most appreciated, this vegetable oil sublimates the skin and the hair.
It moisturizes, nourishes, protects, regulates sebum production, and preserves the skin from aging: jojoba oil can be used at all ages, on the skin as well as on the hair.
Rich, of course, jojoba oil also contains unsaponifiable fatty acids, protecting the skin and fighting against aging.
Jojoba oil repairs and protects the skin. Its healing properties strengthen the defenses of cells against free radicals. It is, therefore, perfect for minor skin repairs, stretch marks, or baby redness.
If you want to benefit from its healing benefits, use it carefully by applying a large layer on the area to be healed. Let it sit for a few hours or overnight.
It is anti-acne
Its component, very similar to human sebum, makes it possible to strengthen the skin’s hydrolipidic film. It eliminates bacteria and regulates the sebum of oily and acne-prone skin. To improve its action, you can mix it with a purifying essential oil, such as geranium or tea-tree oil.
Use it as an evening treatment on cleansed skin by pouring a few drops into the palms of your hands. Rub, then apply the vegetable oil in circular motions on your cheeks. Continue from the wings of the nose to the ears. Penetrate the oil in-depth with delicate gestures.
It is anti-aging
Thanks to its moisturizing properties, the oil is also recognized for its anti-aging action. Anti-inflammatory, it limits attacks on the elastin fibers of the skin and redensifies its dermal tissue. It results in reduced wrinkles.
For better use, you can then replace your moisturizer with organic jojoba vegetable oil. Very nourishing, apply only two or three drops on the tips of your fingers and pat on your face by performing light circular massages. This would have the effect of activating the blood microcirculation.
It hydrates and nourishes
Perfect for the skin, it is also ideal for the hair. Applied as a massage or mask before shampooing, jojoba oil is mainly used to moisturize the hair’s properties. It gives them shine and vigor without greasing them. On the contrary, it helps regulate the sebum of oily scalps.
For dry ends and brittle hair, use it as a mask before shampooing on dry hair. You can do an oil bath that you will leave on for two hours, ideally overnight. For people with an oily scalp, massage it before your shampoo with the equivalent of a tablespoon of jojoba oil. You can increase its effectiveness tenfold by using a few essential oils of lavender.
