Using natural ingredients on your skin and not just INSIDE your body is important to maintaining a clean lifestyle. Jojoba (“ho-ho-ba”) is a liquid wax from the seed of the jojoba plant that is often referred to as an essential oil. It contains vitamins, minerals and antioxidants with many benefits for skin and hair. Gentle enough for newborns, jojoba softens and conditions the skin, soothes dry skin, and restores elasticity.
Non-toxic, non-comedogenic (specially formulated so as not to cause blocked pores) and non-allergenic (will not irritate sensitive skin). Jojoba is also a carrier oil and can be combined with other natural oils to meet more skincare needs. Commonly used as a deep moisturizer and hair conditioner, it also brings some lesser-known benefits to skincare routines.
Skin Repair and Damage Prevention
Rich in Vitamin E, B-complex, and the minerals silicon, chromium, copper, zinc, and iodine, jojoba reduces scars and stretch marks and helps speed the healing process. Jojoba also soothes skin irritations like sunburn and heat rash, while reducing flaking and peeling. Edye’s Naturals products contain organic jojoba to help maintain healthy skin and heal any damage.
Antibacterial and Anti-Inflammatory Qualities
A natural anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal extract, jojoba is commonly used to treat and soothe difficult skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, warts, acne, and more. Studies have shown that there was a significant reduction in skin lesions after using jojoba oil on damaged skin. This extract even increases skin elasticity and slows the signs of aging.
As a carrier oil, jojoba can work with other essential oils or extracts to create a perfect shave. Combine with aloe vera for the perfect combination of moisturizing and conditioning to achieve a smoother shave. Remember to use Edye’s Naturals Face & Body Butter as part of your shaving routine.
Edye’s Naturals products provides many products containing organic jojoba and other organic ingredients to unleash the power of organic healing for healthier skin.
