Jojoba oil is one of our most favoured ingredients, extracted from the seed of the Indigenous American Jojoba plant that was discovered by the Native Americans of the Sonoran Desert. They have included it in their sacred skin routines for hundreds, if not thousands of years.
One of the wonderful qualities of Jojoba is its versatility. It is recommended for sensitive, dry, oily or acne prone skin but how on earth can that be possible you might wonder? Well, the answer lies within the make-up of the natural oils already produced within our own skin.
Below the surface of our skin you will find the sebaceous gland, this gland produces the sebum which is the oil that coats the surface of our skin. This oil is produced naturally by our skin to excrete bacteria, protect the skin from outside elements and to lock in the moisture. However, more often than not the balance in the production of sebum can be thrown out of balance causing all kinds of skin issues like greasy skin, breakouts, dryness and fine lines. The challenge is finding and keeping the perfect balance throughout our lives to keep a healthy looking complexion.
Jojoba Oil plays a vital role in natural skincare, having a genetic makeup so closely composed to that of our natural sebum oil (non-comedogenic), it mimics the roles of our natural oils, allowing it the ability to penetrate deep into the skin protecting and replenishing all the whilst helping to balance sebum production. The best thing about it is the fact that almost everyone can benefit from including Jojoba in their routine.
Jojoba for Normal Skin Types
To help balance the oil flow and replenish the skin Jojoba oil is a key ingredient Jojoba oil helps to mimic our natural oils, tricking our skin into a regulated oil production. Jojoba also contains iodine, which helps fight harmful bacteria growth that causes pimples, blackheads, and breakouts. In the long term a balanced oil production will minimize grease and shine and lead to clearer skin whilst remaining well hydrated and protected from elements. Packed with Jojoba oil, our Byron Bay Skincare Cream Cleanser gently emulsifies the oil off the skin, leaving it feeling soft and supple.
Jojoba for Dry Skin Types
Those that suffer from dry or sensitive skin, whether it being caused by environmental, hormonal or ageing it doesn’t matter the same solution actually surprisingly still applies. The dry skin feeling is caused this time by your skin simply not producing enough oils, leaving the skin unprotected from the outside elements it can become irritated, sensitive and can lead to ageing skin. Including products that feature Jojoba oil in your routine will compensate for lack of sebum production and bring it back to a healthier balance.

Jojoba for the Body
One area we tend to mistreat and neglect is our body. As we age we lose our moisture balance in our body, so areas such as our legs and hands become dry and scaly. Jojoba oil is the perfect addition to body care products as it helps replace that lost sebum in the skin. Packed with vitamin E, Jojoba oil is known for its regenerating properties, with this key ingredient in our Body Souffle your skin will be nourished and be protected from free radicals that are responsible for signs of ageing on the skin.
