Jojoba is extremely soothing and moisturizing for the skin. It can treat acne, psoriasis, chapped skin and sunburns. Jojoba is also very beneficial for controlling dry or oily skin. This is due to its similarity to our sebum, which is the oil or waxy matter secreted from our sebaceous gland in the skin. The texture and use of sebum is very similar to jojoba oil, so as we age our sebaceous glands produce less sebum, which is why we get dry skin and hair. Jojoba can add this natural moisture to your skin when your body stops doing it for you. This is why jojoba is strongly encouraged for those with acne and even eczema. Rich in iodine, this wonderful oil can also fight against breakout causing bacteria.
