Ingredient Feature: Healing Jojoba | 4 Benefits of Jojoba Oil
by Mumu Bath
If you’re a skincare enthusiast, you’ve probably heard of jojoba oil. Sounds healthy, but what is it exactly? Scientifically speaking, jojoba oil comes from a North American desert shrub called Simmondsia chinenesis (Science Direct). The seeds of this plant are then turned into the jojoba oil found in a variety skincare products.
This oil is highly beneficial because it provides hydration, helps prevent acne, acts as an antioxidant, and helps heal wounds. Centuries ago, Native Americans used jojoba seed oil to treat sores and wounds (Purdue Horticulture).
At Mumu Bath, we like to take advantage of the healthiest and safest oils found in nature to give you and your family naturally hydrated, glowing skin.
4 Benefits of Jojoba Oil
1. Provides Long-Lasting Hydration
Jojoba oil is widely known for hydrating dry, irritated skin. Instead of stripping your skin of its natural oils, jojoba locks in moisture to protect and restore your skin barrier.
We don’t realize how damaged your skin can get just through daily contacts such as common air pollutants, blue light from phones and computer screens, and sun exposure. Just like sunscreen protects against UV rays, jojoba oil helps protect your skin from toxins.
Don’t forget your lips! Keep your lips hydrated daily with our All Natural Vegan Lip Balm, which contains moisturizing jojoba oil.
2. Fights Against Acne
As a non-comedogenic natural substance, jojoba oil will not clog your pores. In fact, it actually has antimicrobial properties, meaning that it kills the bad bacteria on your skin so that less breakouts are able to form (Healthline).
It also acts as an anti-inflammatory which will reduce redness and swelling on acne spots that are either irritated or in the process of healing.
3. Protects with Antioxidants
Another one of jojoba oil’s amazing benefits is that it contains antioxidants. Powerful antioxidants help protect your skin and slow down the aging process. When we expose ourselves to daily toxins and pollutants, our skin is affected as well.
With the daily use of jojoba oil, we can slow down the formation of wrinkles, dark spots, and dull skin. Add this multi-faceted oil to your daily routine with our All-In-One Body and Shampoo Bar.
4. Promotes Healing
Is your skin susceptible to damage? Or maybe you have a little one who is extra accident prone. Jojoba oil is widely known for its ability to speed up the healing process on small wounds.
Research shows that this oil has healing properties which encourage your skin cells stick to each other after being damaged or torn (such as through a cut or scrape) (Healthline). This healing ability also explains why jojoba helps heal acne as well. We highly recommend adding this versatile oil to your first aid kit!
