A common oil found in a lot of beard oils is Jojoba Oil. What is Jojoba? Jojoba Oil is derived from the Jojoba Shrub or Simmondsia chinensis. Commonly called Goat Nut, Deer Nut, Pignut, Wild Hazel, or Gray Box Bush. Jojoba oil is derived from the seed of this shrub and is used as a carrier oil and often part of a blend with other oils. The unique oil that comes from Jojoba is referred to as a liquid wax, a super long straight chain wax ester and not a triglyceride. This makes Jojoba oil more similar to whale oil than vegetable oils. Jojoba Oil has shelf stability, heat resistance, and once refined, it is odorless and colorless.
Jojoba Oil is great for promoting hair growth. Jojoba Oil is a moisturizing oil that helps to prevent hair breakage leaving your beard looking fuller and longer. Another benefit of Jojoba Oil is that it prevents the build up of sebum on your skin. Sebum is naturally occurring oil from the skin. When there is a build up of sebum on the skin, hair cannot grow as easily. Jojoba Oil is a humectant leaving a protective layer on the skin to keep moisture in. This helps to prevent dandruff, and bacterial infections such as acne. Jojoba Oil is noncomedogenic meaning it will not clog your pores, and allergic reaction to this oil is rare.
Jojoba Oil also has antibacterial and anti fungal properties. Jojoba Oil also is rich in Vitamin E and works as an antioxidant. The antioxidant properties of Jojoba Oil may help to promote collagen production in the skin keeping your skin looking youthful.
Jojoba Oil also has healing properties and is beneficial for preventing scarring, and promoting quick healing. It helps skin cells to bind back together after a scratch occurs. It is also anti inflammatory and soothing for skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema.
