All the uses of jojoba oil for beauty

Jojoba oil to cleanse and moisturize the face

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.
