Jojoba Skin Care Recipes

These jojoba skin care recipes will keep your dermis hydrated and nourished. 

Completely natural and long lasting, jojoba oil is an excellent choice for nourishing your face, body, hair and nails as it mimics the naturally occurring oils in our skin. 

Pronounced ho-ho-ba, jojoba oil can be used in so many ways for everyone’s skincare routine. It’s a natural, gentle and effective way to take care of all skin types – including sensitive, dry, oily, blemished or mature skin. 

Jojoba has a unique botanical chemistry that makes it very versatile and well-suited for human skin on its own. As well as being an effective all-over moisturiser for everyone including babies, jojoba oil can be used as makeup remover, a hair and beard treatment, nail oil or to help reduce scars and stretch marks. 

Jojoba Skin Care Recipes

Jojoba’s unique properties reduce the need for artificial preservatives and can extend the life of natural skincare preparations that contain other botanicals. 

This makes it an excellent base ingredient if you’re making jojoba skin care recipes like homemade face or body lotions, deodorants, face masks, body scrubs, soaps, lip balms or wound salve. It makes both a high-quality massage oil and a base or carrier oil for more concentrated plant extracts such as essential oils and herbal infusions.
