Derived from the jojoba plant (which stores its liquid wax in its seeds), jojoba oil is overflowing with antioxidants and omegas, as well as vitamins A, D and E.
Not necessarily known as a multitasker, it can be surprising to discover just how much this nourishing wonder oil is capable of. Not sure yourself? Read on to discover some sensational jojoba oil uses (and why it’s well worth getting yourself a bottle)...
#1 It nourishes your skin, hair and lips
Easily absorbed, jojoba oil is the perfect nourishing product for your whole body, from top to toe. Use it on your face, body, hair – or even your lips for a supremely silky result.
#2 It fades scars and stretch marks
Jojoba oil works tirelessly to fade the appearance of scars and stretch marks and nurture the growth of healthy new cells.
#3 It helps with acne
The antibacterial properties found in jojoba oil can help to deeply clean pores and prevent new breakouts from occurring.
