The structure of Jojoba oil closely resembles that of your own skin sebum, and because of this it has a natural affinity to the skin and easily absorbs, leaving soft, smooth and supple skin. It does not make skin feel greasy or sticky and it does not clog pores. It helps to balance the production of sebum - your skin's own lubricating medium, so it helps with both oily skin types and dry skin types.
It contains myristic acid which also has an anti-inflammatory action.
Jojoba oil has the ability to minimize fine lines and wrinkles, promoting skin suppleness while assisting with the rejuvenation of the skin and forms a non-greasy, non-tacky layer with exceptional trans-epidermal water control.
Jojoba oil is well tolerated by people with skin problems and does not aggravate acne, and also helps to break down sebum in plugged-up pores.
Dermatological tests on Jojoba oil
In dermatological tests by Christensen and Packman, Jojoba Oil was shown to increases the skin's suppleness by 45% and after 8 hours the effect was still present. It was also found that Jojoba oil softens and smoothes the skin with fine line reduction. In one test 20 women's skin suppleness increased 37% after 30 minutes and remained for a hour. Continued use of Jojoba oil results in reducing superficial facial lines. Reduction of lines was up to 26% in conducted tests. Tests at Michigan University showed that five of the most common skin bacteria plus certain skin fungi couldn't survive in Jojoba oil. Studies on Jojoba oil at the Ben Gurion University in Israel have shown that Jojoba oil relieves the symptoms of psoriasis.

Jojoba oil works for all skin types by increasing the moisture content of the skin without leaving an oily feeling behind. It will soften even the driest skin anywhere on the body and helps smooth stretch marks. It easily penetrates skin and dissolves clogged pores and blackheads. Psoriasis and Rosacea sufferers will benefit immensely from both the moisturizing and anti-inflammatory properties of Jojoba oil.
Jojoba is also an ideal treatment for post peel skin as it keeps skin supple and moisturized while reducing inflammation and irritation that cause delays in healing. This helps boost the results from all of our skin treatments.
And always, a good sunscreen is critical to protecting your skin!
