Jojoba oil closely resembles sebum, a waxy substance produced by our skin, and thus it works as a natural skin conditioner without giving any greasy feeling as with other oils.
Jojoba oil seals in the moisture by creating a barrier to external elements that cause excessive dryness. The skin tolerates this since the structure of Jojoba oil is close to that of the sebaceous glands in the skin.
If Jojoba oil works as a deep cleanser, it can dissolve sebum deposits. As a result, Jojoba oil cleans blockages in pores, making it indispensable for those with oily skin.
Its antibacterial properties help control bacterial growth in the hair follicle, whereas its anti-inflammatory properties soothe irritated skin. Thanks to vitamin A and E, Jojoba oil can also help to control acne. Its soothing effect is also used to treat sunburnt skin.
Jojoba oil is one of those rare oils that works for both oily skin and dry skin at the same time.
