In a family all by itself, Simmondsia chinensis is a unique plant that produces the amazing Jojoba nut. The oil contained in this seed has numerous benefits that can help skin look and feel its best. In today’s post, discover why Jojoba Oil is a premium ingredient included in PURELY™ health products.
Native to the Southwestern United States and deserts of Mexico, the seeds of the Jojoba (pronounced ho-HO-ba) plant have been used for centuries by Native American tribes. By crushing the seeds, the natural oils are squeezed out and can be collected. Cold pressing the seeds without heat produces less oil but creates a higher quality, more pure product.
Jojoba is unique among seed oils because of its high concentration of monounsaturated omega-9 fatty acids. Its high content of Eicosenoic, Erucic, and Oleic acids make this oil more similar to the natural sebum the human body produces than other vegetable oils. These organic chemicals are highly moisturizing with powerful penetration properties to absorb into and nourish the skin. For these reasons, Jojoba oil is a key ingredient in our Immerse carrier oil. Our unique blend of natural seed oils lets you dilute essential oils for topical application so you get the most enjoyable and beneficial experience possible.
Jojoba oil’s moisturizing properties also extend to hair care. It can help rehydrate hair strands that have been stripped of water by shampoos or heat. It also nourishes the follicles and skin underneath to promote stronger hair and help soothe dry, itchy conditions that could lead to dandruff. That’s why Jojoba oil is the number one ingredient in our Beard + Tattoo Oils. With two amazing scents to choose from, these men’s care products inspired by the man dressed in black will keep guys groomed to perfection and smelling great.
