A common misconception about Jojoba is that it can leave the skin feeling greasy or oily. The truth is that it actually mimics the skin’s natural sebum balance and thus rids the skin of oily ickiness.
If you are struggling from skin that is dry and itchy or greasy and uncomfortable, Jojoba can help your skin find the proper medium. It can also help fight back against dandruff, dry skin, acne and wrinkles. Overflowing with antioxidants, Jojoba can help brighten dark spots and minimize the appearance of pores.
Lastly, Jojoba is an exquisite addition to natural shaving oils, makeup removers or revitalizing lip balms.
