First things first, let’s clear this up — jojoba is pronounced ho-ho-buh, in case you were wondering.

Jojoba is a shrub that’s native to desert regions in North America, and its oil, which is sometimes referred to as wax, is extracted from the plant’s seeds. Before it made its way to personal care products, jojoba oil was used by Native Americans to treat sores and wounds.

Fun fact: it was used as an additive to motor oils back in the 40s! It was only in the 70s that jojoba oil became known as a beauty ingredient. 

Although its cosmetic use is a fairly recent development, jojoba oil has rightfully earned its place as one of the top picks of beauty enthusiasts everywhere for its many benefits! Read on and find out why: 

It’s a great source of Vitamin E

While it also supports the immune system and promotes cell function, Vitamin E (scientifically called dl-alpha tocopherol) is best known as the skin nutrient! Aside from making and keeping skin look great by warding off fine lines and wrinkles, this fat-soluble vitamin can even treat skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis, rosacea, and eczema.

It packs a lot of Vitamin B

There are eight types of B vitamins, and jojoba oil has them all! These nutrients are good for our overall health as they help promote detoxifying and regenerating functions in our cells. Two in particular are hailed for their specific skincare benefits: B3, for its antibacterial properties and for helping curb pigmentation, and B5, for hydration and moisturization.

It’s a powerful antioxidant

Aside from Vitamins E and B, the other trace minerals in jojoba oil’s composition makes it a really powerful antioxidant! Antioxidants protect the skin cells from damage caused by free radicals.

It has anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties

Acne is essentially an inflammation caused by the bacteria build-up on your skin, and jojoba oil has two natural “antis” to fix that: anti-microbial (to fight bacteria) and anti-inflammatory (to soothe the skin).

It deeply moisturizes the skin

Jojoba oil is one of nature’s ultimate moisturizers, and for good reason — it creates a protective barrier on your skin to seal in its moisture and protect from dryness. This not only keeps skin healthy, it also makes it firm and supple.
