Ingredient Highlight: Jojoba Oil

Jojoba oil is a popular ingredient in skincare products & for a good reason. This versatile oil has many benefits for the skin, from moisturising & soothing to protecting against environmental stressors. At Hark & Zander, we love Jojoba Oil & use it in our multi-award winning Face Oil, HempTonic!

What is Jojoba Oil?

Jojoba oil is a natural plant oil derived from the seeds of the jojoba plant, which is native to North America. The oil is a rich source of vitamins & minerals, including vitamin E, B-complex vitamins, zinc, copper, selenium & iodine. Jojoba oil is also rich in fatty acids, which help to moisturise & protect the skin.

Benefits of Jojoba Oil in Skincare:

Moisturising Properties

Jojoba oil is an excellent natural moisturiser for the skin. It is non-greasy & easily absorbed, making it an ideal ingredient for all skin types, including oily & acne-prone skin. Jojoba oil helps to balance the skin's natural oils, keeping it hydrated & healthy-looking.

Soothing Properties

Jojoba oil has anti-inflammatory properties, which make it an excellent ingredient for soothing irritated or inflamed skin. It can help to reduce redness & swelling, making it ideal for use on conditions such as eczema & rosacea.

Anti-Ageing Properties

Jojoba oil contains antioxidants that help to protect the skin against damage from free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that can damage skin cells & cause premature ageing. Regular use of jojoba oil can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles, & improve skin elasticity.

Non-Comedogenic Properties

Jojoba oil is non-comedogenic, which means it does not clog pores. This makes it an ideal ingredient for use in skincare products designed for oily & acne-prone skin. It can help to keep the skin hydrated & balanced without causing breakouts.
