Jojoba oil to cleanse and moisturize the face
Jojoba oil - or Jojoba wax - counteracts dehydration of the skin. Just a few drops of jojoba oil are enough to enjoy the benefits; thanks to its emollient properties, it prevents wrinkles and minimizes the existing ones by relaxing the skin.
The emollient and moisturizing properties make jojoba oil also suitable for dry, dehydrated and chapped skin as it protects against dehydration and reduces the water loss of skin cells.
Since it is a non-greasy oil, which does not clog the pores and which is quickly absorbed, jojoba oil is also an excellent ally for oily and impure skin, regulating the function of the sebaceous glands.
Its composition makes jojoba oil suitable for even the most sensitive skin and can also be applied to the skin of babies and children, for example to prevent and alleviate redness and irritation caused by the diaper.
Jojoba oil can be used not only as a moisturizer, but also for gently cleansing and removing make-up from the face and eyes, by pouring a small amount onto a cotton pad.
