Simmondsia Chinensis Seed Oil (Jojoba)

Jojoba oil is the liquid that is produced from the seeds of the Simmondsia chinensis. This oil is fantastic for the skin on your face, hair and body. It's a lighter-feeling oil but deeply hydrating, and full of nutrients, vitamins, and minerals that are integral to the health of your skin.
It’s moisturizing and this means that seals your skin with a protective barrier to keep it from losing moisture. It’s antibacterial and anti acne since Jojoba oil contains antimicrobial and antifungal properties. It does kill certain bacteria and fungi that can cause salmonella, an E. coli infection, and candida. Reduces acne by controlling oil production and preventing bacteria growth. Jojoba oil contains natural forms of vitamin E which works as an antioxidant. It’s noncomedogenic because its makeup is so similar to the oil (sebum) your body naturally produces that your skin can’t tell the difference. Jojoba is hypoallergenic - on a molecular level, jojoba oil is a wax. Although it can be absorbed into your skin, its waxy nature allows it to create a soothing seal on the surface. Jojoba oil regulates sebum production. Promotes collagen synthesis - collagen is a protein that’s in your skin and joints as well as the parts of your body made of cartilage. Jojoba oil has anti-inflammatory and healing properties. The combination of vitamin E and iodine helps heal inflamed or compromised skin. Minimizes the appearance of scars and it fades fine lines and wrinkles.
