Jojoba Oil is technically a plant wax rather than an oil that has similar absorption properties that are close to our skin’s own sebum making it a wonderful oil to add to your skincare routine. Jojoba Oil is packed with vitamins, has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antibacterial properties and rapidly absorbs into skin which makes it a great oil to wear alone or under makeup.
Jojoba Oil comes from the fruit of the Simmondsia Chinensis plant. It is native to Southwestern North America. Native Americans extracted the oil from the Simmondsia Chinensis plant and we are still using this amazing plant wax today for many of our skincare needs.
Jojoba Oil is a very neutral oil and doesn’t have much of an aroma making it ideal for people who have sensitivities to aromas. It’s also a great choice for many DIY skincare recipes since it absorbs quickly, doesn’t have an odor, and seems to work quite well for so many different people. I love using Jojoba Oil in my face oils especially for morning use and use under makeup since it soaks in so fast.
