PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

An extremely versatile oil that can be used for all skin types. It penetrates the skin very quickly leaving it feeling soft and supple. Excellent in hair products as well.
 
Product Description 
A clear, yellow oil that is expressed from the organically grown seeds of the Jojoba plant.
 
It is an occlusive moisturiser which means it slows down Transepidermal Water Loss (TEWL) from the skin. Normally, we don’t recommend the use of synthetic occlusives like liquid paraffin as they seal the skin for many days which we believe to be most undesirable. However, Jojoba Oil is a temporary occlusive and just reduces the moisture loss for about 12 hours of the day. It does not seal the skin completely and allows to skin to continue its normal eliminative functions.
  • Use 1% to 100%.
  • Oil soluble so cannot be used in water only products. It can be used in small amounts in water based gels that will hold it in suspension.
  • Heat stable so can be used in Stage 1 (fat stage) when making creams and lotions. The waxy esters in the oil make it very stable and resistant to oxidation.
Jojoba oil is actually a wax that is liquid at room temperature. If you store your bottle in a cold area, you will see that it goes cloudy and thicker at the bottom of the bottle. This is the fatty esters solidifying and nothing is settling out or separating - it is just that the bottle in a cold room is usually colder at the bottom than the top. This does not damage the oil and coming to room temperature will restore the usual clarity of the oil.
 
Blend Jojoba Oil with a little Geranium Essential Oil to make an oil balancing facial oil.
 
Combine it with low freezing point oils like Hazelnut and Squalane to make effective facial oils and products for combination skin types.
 
Typical Fatty Acid Profile
C16:0 Palmitic Acid max 3%
C18:1 Oleic Acid (Omega 9) 5% to 15%
C20:1 Eicosenoic Acid 65% to 80%

HOW TO USE IT

Skin Care
  • The high levels of Eicosenoic Acid means that it balances the oil levels in the skin, making it less oily. As it is a non greasy, non comedogenic, it will not block the skin’s pores. It leaves the skin with a very elegant natural silicon like feel.
  • Wonderful to use in mature skin creams and serums.
  • It has a chemical make up very similar to sebum which is the natural oil lubricant that our skin secretes. When we get slow or sluggish pores or block our pores with poor quality cosmetics, the sebum can start to build up. This slightly stretches the pores giving the appearance of large pores and the surface of the sebum plug starts to go black as it oxidises with the air. This is then called a blackhead and when it is squeezed, the matter that comes out is oxidised or rancid sebum. When Jojoba Oil is used in the facial products, it can soften the acneic sebum plugs and allow the pores to expel the blackhead. For that reason, it is an excellent choice in acne prone skin products.
  • Dry skin benefits from Jojoba Oil as it locks moisture in the skin and soothes dry and chapped areas. It keeps the skin soft and hydrated. For the same reasons, it is perfect to use in lip balms.
  • An excellent skin emollient which helps reduce TEWL. This makes for excellent cold weather face creams as well as gardeners hand creams. It is very protective and acts like a barrier to the harsh external conditions. It replenishes rough and calloused skin to become soft and supple.
  • Suitable for all skin types, even a delicate baby’s skin.
  • It is an excellent oil to use in massage creams and lotions as the molecular bonds are particularly strong and allows very long, slow strokes on the body which is ideal for deep treatment massages. It leaves no sticky feeling on the skin.
  • In massage oils, it can penetrate too quickly on its own so the slip can be increased by blending with 10% Castor Oil as well as adding some Omega 3 oils like Rosehip Seed or Chia Seed.
  • Makes a very good hand or nail cream or use as a nail oil. The oil strengthens and hydrates the cuticles.
Hair Care
  • It is a great choice for hair products due to its protective properties and ability to retain moisture. It forms a transparent, protective film on the hair shaft which locks moisture into the hair shaft.
  • The Erucic Acid content leaves a very silky texture on the hair with a natural silicon like quality.
  • As it has a rich mixture of Omega 9 essential fatty acids, it is an excellent hair conditioner.
  • It is very heat stable and works exceptionally well in hot oil hair treatments.

I used this product to help emulsify some essential oils. All products that have been used gave great feedback. When I run out I plan to use this product again.
