We LOVE it! Kasia Skin Proffesionals use jojoba in many ways for the skin and hair, as well as a carrier oil for our GM Certified Essential Oils!
Jojoba oil helps promote healing of the skin in many ways. It can actually discourage the growth of some bacterial and fungal microbes that attack the skin. The composition of jojoba closely resembles that of the skin’s natural sebum, so it is easily absorbed and rarely causes any reactions, even in the most sensitive individuals.
Jojoba oil is composed of liquid wax esters rather than oil, therefore leaving your skin less greasy than other carrier oils. The body’s natural sebum also contains wax esters, which act as a sort of natural moisturizer and environmental barrier for the skin. However, wax ester production steadily decreases with age, causing the skin to appear dull and emphasize wrinkles.
For this reason, Kasia Salon uses jojoba oil in our hair and skin services and retail options!
Jojoba oil can prevent the skin from becoming too oily. Because the structure of jojoba oil so closely resembles natural sebum, it can actually trick the skin into producing less natural sebum. Jojoba oil may help treat acne, both by reducing sebum production and by protecting the skin from harmful bacteria.
To control Acne
Many people are surprised by the fact that Jojoba Oil is used to treat acne because it is an oil. People automatically assume that oils will clog the pores and make acne worse, but because of the unique structure of Jojoba Oil, that does not occur when you use it. Studies have shown that Jojoba Oil can actually help to unblock the pores and also they can prevent further clogging later on. It only takes a couple of drops a day to help with your acne problem; however, it is mainly only suitable for mild acne.
As an eye makeup remover
Soak a cotton pad or ball, and swipe over your eye shadow, liner, and mascara. Not only will your eye makeup be gently and completely removed, you'll find your lashes lush and conditioned, too.
As a facial moisturizer
Because jojoba oil closely resembles human sebum, our skin accepts it very well without threat of breakouts or reactions. If you're oily or combination skinned and afraid of putting any oil on your face, rest easy. Jojoba oil actually helps to balance skin's sebum, so it moisturizes dry skins and eases the oil production in oily skin. Apply jojoba oil by mixing two drops of it in your moisturizer, or use it sparingly on its own.
As a lip conditioner
If you suffer from dry, chapped lips, a small amount of this can be used as an alternative to chapstick or more expensive lip balms.
As a cuticle oil
Say goodbye to dry, ragged cuticles. A small amount of jojoba oil, rubbed into the cuticles on a regular basis, helps keep them soft.
As a hair conditioner or serum
Mix a few drops into your conditioner and rinse out. You can also put a couple of drops on your palm and apply to the ends of damp hair before blow drying - a great trick for soft strands. Or if your hair is looking dull, or frizzy, a little jojoba oil on the ends will smooth out the cuticle, making it look shiny and healthy.
As a body oil
Perfect for skin, especially aging or menopausal skin as it replaces loss of aging skin's natural wax esters. Use it all over your body after a bath or shower. It sinks in quickly, but leaves your skin hydrated and moisturized -- not to mention luxurious when we add drops of our sweetest smelling essential oils.
