Jojoba oil is a high-quality vegetable oil extracted from the berry of the jojoba (Simmondsia chinensis). This oil is exceptionally rich in nutrients and beneficial active ingredients that can contribute to the health of the skin and hair. Jojoba oil has long been used in the beauty industry and aromatherapy, and is one of the most popular carrier oils in cosmetics and personal care products.
Features and benefits:
- Skin care: Jojoba oil is extremely moisturizing and helps retain moisture in the skin. Due to its light texture, it is easily absorbed and does not leave a greasy feeling. Ideal for a variety of skin types, including dry, oily, sensitive or acne-prone skin.
- Hair care: Jojoba oil can help moisturize and condition hair. It helps reduce hair breakage and dryness, and helps treat scalp dandruff.
- Aromatherapy: Jojoba oil can also be used as a carrier oil for essential oils. It is excellent for diluting essential oils and helps in their effective distribution on the skin.
- Antioxidants: Jojoba oil contains natural antioxidants that can protect against environmental damage and free radicals.
Use: Jojoba oil can be applied directly to the skin or hair, or added to other cosmetics and homemade products. It can also be used as an ideal carrier oil for diluting essential oils, which allows fragrances to be absorbed safely onto the skin.
Warnings and storage:
- Store jojoba oil in a cool, dark place away from direct sunlight.
- Avoid contact with eyes or mucous membranes and do not swallow.
- Always perform a skin test before first use with essential oils or other ingredients to rule out allergic reactions.
