Your beauty care regimen could be boosted by using jojoba oil and natural skincare products
The Jojoba Company Australia produces natural skincare products that are said to offer beauty care to soothe, heal and replenish the skin at its deepest, cellular level using pure jojoba oil.
Founded in 2008 and this company places much of its emphasis on total skin health, skin conditioning and anti-aging.
Established by Ian Turner and his daughter Vicki Engsall, it was Vicki who spent time researching the skin healing properties of jojoba oil after her father had planted his first crop of jojoba plants over a decade ago.
Today their brand’s core ingredient is jojoba oil which is derived from the jojoba bean. This oil is actually a wax ester which is said to nourish the skin. Jojoba plants also nurture the earth as they grow.
The jojoba plant (also known as Simmondsia chinensis) finds its origins in Arizona where Native Americans of the Sonoran Desert used jojoba oil to restore their skin and treat any skin conditions.
In its purest form jojoba oil is a bright, gold color and can be stored for long periods of time.
The oil or wax ester produced by the jojoba bean has been found to be one of the main components of healthy, young skin.
The Jojoba Company grow jojoba plants in New South Wales on a sustainable farm where they harvest and gently press and filter jojoba beans to the highest of standards for purity.
Their crops are also carbon negative which means that they remove carbon from the atmosphere when they grow. Each final skincare product produced is also completely natural, chemical free and hasn’t been tested on animals.
Since jojoba oil contains the same elements as the skin, when the oil (or wax ester) is applied it mimics human skin. When it’s used in higher doses it’s said to be able to penetrate the skin’s cells at much deeper levels than many other natural cosmetic products.
Jojoba oil may also help to defend against loss of moisture and retains the skins natural oils. It’s versatile, anti-bacterial, works with all skin types, is non-greasy and is rich in fatty acids and vitamins A, D and E.
The Jojoba Company’s wide range of cosmetic products suit any skin type and the brand also offers a useful and convenient travel kit.
The Jojoba Company Australia Travel Essentials Pack contains five of the brand’s best-selling and signature skincare products which means hassle-free natural skincare is available to women whenever they’re on the go.
The 100 % Natural Australian Jojoba can be used as a skincare base and is said to be a powerful moisturizer and wrinkle smoother. This product can help to soothe the skin and hands and can also be used to condition the hair, scalp and nail cuticles.
The Jojoba Bead Facial Cleanser is also included in the travel pack and contains jojoba beads. These beads gently exfoliate the skin and infuse it with nourishing esters.
The cleanser can be used up to three times a week and also as a face mask if it’s left on the skin for 10-15 minutes.
The Hydrating Day Cream contains olive leaf and green tea extracts, Siberian ginseng and beta gluten. This anti-aging moisturizer may increase elastin production by up to 97 %. The Siberian ginseng can help to firm the skin and works alongside nourishing vitamins B and E.
A luxurious night cream and soothing hand cream are also included in the travel pack. The Intense Overnight Renewal Cream can encourage deep skin renewal and rejuvenation throughout the night.
Each product in the travel pack comes in 20 ml sizes – apart from the 100 % Natural Australian Jojoba which comes in a 15 ml size.
Otherwise, jojoba oil devotees can follow particular skincare routines which are shown on the company website depending on whether their skin is sensitive, oily or combination.
There’s also a specific routine with cosmetics to help tone and improve uneven skin, as well as an age defying collection. This includes the 1- % Natural Absolute Serum, the Natural Ultimate Jojoba and a CoQ10 Antioxidant Serum .
To use jojoba oil:
- Apply 1-2 pumps on the skin for healing and soothing
- Massage 2-3 drops onto damp skin twice a day after cleansing for moisturizing
