Spotlight: Jojoba Oil

Buckle up for a long post: jojoba oil has so many beneficial properties, it might become your new favorite ingredient in our products!

Even though it is called an oil, jojoba is actually a liquid wax – but don’t let the word “wax” scare you. It is packed full of vitamins like B vitamins, vitamin C, vitamin E, copper, and zinc. Jojoba oil is incredibly similar to the molecular structure of our skin, which is good news for customers with skin sensitivities. A very common ingredient in many cosmetic and skincare products, you often see jojoba oil in lipsticks, shampoos, lotions, and more.

In haircare, jojoba oil is beneficial because it maintains the balance of oils that your skin produces. It helps moisturize and soothe an itchy or flaky scalp. Try our Hair Serum to help boost and revitalize both curly and straight hair; jojoba oil penetrates deep into the shaft to moisturize from the inside out. If you have heat or styling damage, this serum can help repair your hair and restore your shine. For coarse hair or for beards, try our Beard Balm; it also contains jojoba oil!

If you love using our soaps as your shampoo and conditioner, you will be excited to know that our Avocado From Scratch Soap also contains jojoba oil, which means that our popular Charvocado From Scratch Soap does as well. Grab one of these soaps if you have dry or damaged hair!

Jojoba oil is also known to be calming and works well in the practice of aromatherapy, which is why you should try our Essential Oil Roller Balls! These rollers are a convenient way to apply our blends of essential oils, olive oil, and jojoba oil. This means you’ll reap the benefits of our therapeutic grade essential oils in addition to those of the carrier oils.

Jojoba is also amazing for your skin. It can help repair damaged, dry, flaky, cracked, or irritated skin. As an added bonus, it deep cleans to fight certain skin conditions. Those who struggle with breakouts or skin sensitivities will appreciate how similar jojoba is to skin’s natural oils. Consider trying our Hair Serum; it is for so much more than hair! Rub it into your face, heels, elbows, or rough patches of skin. 

Some people suggest that jojoba offers a small amount of sun protection due to its zinc content. If you get a little too much sun, jojoba oil is soothing to apply after a burn. Other great products that can restore, soothe, moisturize, and calm your skin with the power of Jojoba are our CBD Balm or our Beard Balm (it’s not just for beards!).

Last but not least, jojoba oil has been shown to reduce the appearance of aging by minimizing the appearance of lines and wrinkles, in addition to increasing your collagen production. Check out our Eye Serum or our luxurious Harmony Facial Cream if you are interested in age-fighting products with many powerhouse ingredients, including jojoba oil.
