Ingredient Spotlight - Jojoba Oil
Jojoba Oil for Promoting Optimal Skin Health and Appearance
At Pure Energy Apothecary, we love formulating our skincare products with jojoba oil and are excited to share all of its powerhouse properties with you.
Simply put, jojoba oil (pronounced ho-ho-ba) comes from the seed of a drought-resistant shrub called Simmondsia Chinensis, and is native to Arizona, California, and Mexico. Jojoba oil is a naturally sustainable, desert plant that needs very little water compared to other high-water consuming crops.
By nature, jojoba oil holds many benefits for our face, skin, and hair. It mimics our skin’s natural oil, sebum, which strengthens, conditions and seals in moisture without clogging pores. The outcome of these features is a deeply hydrating but lightweight, non-greasy feel on the skin. We love that!
This powerful humectant naturally keeps the skin hydrated which in turn may help prevent acne breakouts, infections, and dandruff.
The top 6 reasons Pure Energy Apothecary uses jojoba oil!
- Nutritious for Skin - Powered with vitamins and essential nutrients such as vitamin A, D, E, and Zinc plus Omega 6 and 9 fatty acids. Nourished skin is happy skin!
- Antioxidant Protection - Packed with natural antioxidants such as linoleic acid and vitamin A that promote hydration, aid in regenerating skin cells for fast healing, and defends the skin from outside irritants.
- Non-Allergenic & Gentle - Ideal for use on sensitive skin as it is the most similar plant oil to our skin's natural oil, sebum.
- Deeply Hydrating - Absorbs into the skin quickly and efficiently. PLUS it's rich in ceramides creating a barrier to reduce moisture loss in the skin resulting in plump, supple skin.
- Anti-inflammatory properties - Vitamin E, Zinc, and Omega 6 and 9 fatty acids work to reduce inflammation, and protect and repair the epidermis layer of the skin.
- Noncomedogenic - Noncomedogenic ingredients do not clog the skin’s pores, allowing the skin to breathe and keep it free of breakouts.
Just like all of our handcrafted skincare products, jojoba oil is highly versatile. Our hands, body, and face all benefit from the natural properties of the oil.
To top off all that natural goodness, Pure Energy Apothecary’s ingredients are always thoughtfully, and carefully sourced keeping sustainability and our ecological footprint in mind. We take extreme pride in the sustainability of our ethically sourced jojoba oil.
