It’s the multitasking miracle oil that tackles everything from dry hair to acne.
So it’s no surprise to find jojoba oil in a vast array of beauty goodies, from shampoos to anti-aging products.
Contrary to its name, jojoba oil is actually a liquid wax distilled from the seeds of the jojoba plant.
Because jojoba oil is so similar in its molecular structure to the natural oils that our bodies produce on a regular basis, it’s particularly effective as a moisturiser.
And it’s thanks to this unique composition that jojoba is equally effective at tackling acne.
The theory is that the oil mimics the skin’s own sebum and applying it to the face tricks the skin into halting excess sebum production, which can cause spots.
Fancy benefiting from this hardworking natural wonder stuff?
Here are some jojoba-packed goodies to check out:
For dry and damaged hair:
Dr Hauschka Jojoba And Marshmallow Conditioner is enriched with jojoba and macadamia helps to detangle hair, leaving it smooth and shiny. Meanwhile, marshmallow, oak and nettle moisturise and strengthen the scalp.
