Could the secret to ultra-hydrated skin be found in nature’s more arid regions? The answer is, yes. Jojoba is a desert shrub and the extract from its nut is known for its rich moisturizing benefits.
Although it appears to be oil, jojoba is a liquid wax ester with a structure similar to the natural esters present in sebum, which is a natural protector produced by the body’s sebaceous glands. Sebum holds in skin’s moisturizing water, leading to healthier, more radiant skin and a more youthful appearance.
Antibacterial and Anti-inflammatory
Jojoba is naturally an antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-fungal substance and this makes it ideal for several skin conditions. It has also long been used as an anti-inflammatory for dry, itchy or sensitive skin. It moisturizes while providing the skin with a nutrient rich substance to soothe.
It contains natural Vitamin E, a well-known antioxidant. This means it helps to prevent damage to the skin caused by free radicals such as pollution, while also boosting skin complexion by discouraging the oxidization of things like oil, which helps to prevent clogged pores and blemishes.
Helps balance out sebum & doesn’t clog your pores

Hence helping to balance out sebum production and prevent clogged pores from excess oils on the skin. Jojoba for oily skin is a powerful ingredient that will work wonders.
