Scientific Name: {Simmondsia Chinesis}
Common Name: {Buxus Chinesis, jojoba, jojoba bean oil}

Jojoba oil is one of the most recognizable ingredients used in skincare today, derived from a primarily found shrub in the Southwest and Mexico. Native American tribes have historically used jojoba oil for some uses include wounds and keeping skin looking young and fresh.

The oil pressed from the seeds of this shrub has a very similar chemistry to the oils that our bodies create, making it very compatible with most skin types. However, until recently, jojoba oil was not commonly used in cosmetics.

Today, it is used as one of the best moisturizing ingredients for any skincare routine.

The Native American tribes used this oil primarily to treat cuts and scratches on the skin. Jojoba oil is a natural antiseptic and antibacterial agent, meaning that it can clean and sanitize the skin without causing undue irritation.

It also provides serious nutrients. So whether you have blemishes or acne, or photoaging deep underneath the skin, jojoba oil can provide a healthier environment, allowing your complexion itself to renew more efficiently.

jojoba oil for mature skin

The moisturizing benefits are significant, especially for those with dry skin. Properly moisturized skin is essential to the health process and keeps your complexion looking young.

Jojoba oil is chalked-full of nutrients and skin barrier protection for the mature skin type. Using jojoba helps the face and body to appear smoother, more even, and refreshed.

Because jojoba oil’s makeup is very similar to the composition of our body's moisture naturally creates, it is one of the ideal moisturizers on the market.

Because the skin is already used to the oil's chemistry, it absorbs the ingredient into the deep layers of skin, firming and plumping the skin and leaving it looking healthy and refreshed.

Because it is so similar to our natural moisturizer, this oil will not leave the face looking greasy and help combat excess oil throughout the day.

Some women with problematic skin benefit from adding jojoba oil into their routine. For example, it can be ideal for women with acne-prone skin. As it is also an anti-inflammatory, a topical application of jojoba oil can prevent bacteria from clogging your pores but can also help to decrease the redness that often accompanies a pimple.

It moisturizes the skin and cleanses it, so your skin is free from bacteria and excess oil, which are the two leading causes of acne. If you have redness in the face due to rosacea, jojoba oil may also be able to calm your complexion.
