Aceite de jojoba
Long before you could visit a store to purchase beauty products, oils extracted from plants were used to promote healthy skin and hair. Today, many people are returning to the tradition of using natural plant oils for beauty purposes. CVS can help you take a natural approach to beauty with a diverse assortment of jojoba oil products that you can browse and buy online.
What Is Jojoba Oil?
Jojoba oil is a thick liquid extracted from the seeds of a shrub called Simmondsia chinesis, also known as jojoba. The plant is native to dry, arid regions of Arizona, California and Mexico. To create the oil, the seeds of the jojoba shrub are pressed either by hand or a machine. Native Americans in these areas have long used jojoba oil for medicinal and beauty purposes.
Benefits Of Jojoba Oil
For beauty purposes, jojoba oil has a number of uses. The consistency of jojoba oil is very similar to the natural oil called sebum that is produced by your sebaceous glands to moisturize your skin. As a result, jojoba oil is often used to hydrate face and body skin. You may choose to use it daily as a part of your skin care routine or as needed to address dryness. In addition, jojoba oil is sometimes used to moisturize the hair and scalp. Some people also use jojoba oil to address acne, dandruff and other hair and skin care concerns.
How To Use Jojoba Oil?
Pure essential oils are popular natural remedies for many conditions. Because they are highly concentrated, essential oils should not be applied directly to the skin. Instead, experts usually recommend that a few drops of essential oils be mixed with a carrier oil before application. Jojoba oil is commonly used as a carrier oil due to its similarity to sebum. If you're looking for a product to use as a carrier oil, focus on options that are 100 percent pure jojoba oil. You can also find essential oils that are already mixed with jojoba carrier oil.
Jojoba Oil Uses
Beauty brands add jojoba oil to a wide range of products, typically using the ingredient as a moisturizer. You can find jojoba oil-enriched cleansers, moisturizers, hand lotions, body lotions, shampoo, conditioner, styling aids, cosmetics and more. To quickly find a specific type of product made with jojoba oil, you can filter the products by category, brand or form.
