The Benefits of Jojoba Oil

Benefits of Jojoba Oil

The versatile jojoba is naturally hypoallergenic and contains powerful antioxidants, Omega 6 & 9 fatty acids, and Vitamins A, D and E. It is particularly effective for treating skin problems, mostly because it is the oil that most closely represents the sebum that occurs naturally in our own skin. I have successfully used it for a variety of reasons (softer hair, clearer skin, minimised stretch marks), and not once have I been disappointed or experienced any irritation. My only gripe is the smell, which is nutty with a hint of bushfire, but that is completely personal – and it doesn’t linger long enough to detract from everything else this miracle oil can achieve!

Here are the Top 10 benefits of Jojoba Oil:

1. Easily absorbed, jojoba oil moisturises by penetrating deep into the skin, softening and restoring your skin to a healthy condition

2. Providing a potent antioxidant source to the skin, it smooths and reduces the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles

3. Scars and stretch marks are minimised by improving the visible condition of skin and nurturing the growth of new and healthier cells

4. Skin irritations are soothed, and the visible effects of sunburn, heat rash and other skin irritations such as rosacea, psoriasis and eczema are reduced

5. The anti-bacterial properties of jojoba cleans pores and prevents acne breakouts

6. Ideal for removing makeup, simply add a few drops to a cotton ball and wipe gently over the eyes and skin

7. Great for at home massages and baths. Add a few drops to your bath to leave skin feeling moisturised and soft

8. Massage into damp hair, leave for 5-10 minutes, then rinse off for a deep clean – or add a few drops to your conditioner

9. Apply to finger and smooth onto lips to condition and restore. Also works great as an overnight treatment

10. Hands & cuticles are softened when used alone or added to your regular moisturiser
