Jojoba "oil" is actually a wax ester. This is importrant because its much lighter and less greasier which makes it better for your skin. The waxy nature also makes i it more stable and while other oils can quickly go rancid jojoba oil doesnt.
Not sure what a wax ester is? The main component of the oil your skin naturally produces is made up of wax ester which makes jojoba oil the closest thing out there to your skin's own oil.
Good for acne prone skin
Because Jojoba oil is very similar to human skin oils, its use can trick the skin into thinking it has produced enough oil and thus balance oil production, without promoting acne or other skin problems. Jojoba also naturally deters microbes, helping to prevent the growth of bacteria on skin.
Not only is it a good pick for acne-prone skin, but it's also a top choice for anyone whose skin is easily irritated, too. Not only do you get those anti-inflammatory benefits, but, "jojoba oil is considered hypoallergenic, which means we don't really see many people who react poorly to it," points out Dr. Haley. "Most reactions stem from some kind of additives in the oil, so if you purchase 100 percent organic jojoba oil, chances are you won't have a problem."
Because it is the perfect moisturizer, Jojoba can help slow down the appearance of aging, and help to fade fine lines and wrinkles. In dermatological tests, it was shown that jojoba oil increases the skin's suppleness and the effect was still present as time passed. Tests also showed continued use of Jojoba oil resulted in reducing superficial facial lines.
Jojoba oil is recommended for people with sensitive skin (including psoriasis and eczema) because of its gentle nature. Applying Jojoba oil to compromised skin can help reduce flare-ups.
