What is oily skin?
Oily skin is a skin type characterized by an excess production of sebum, the oily substance that helps lubricate and protect the skin.
Sebum is produced by the sebaceous glands, which are located all over the body, but are particularly concentrated on the face, chest, and back.
What causes oily skin?
Oily skin can be caused by a variety of factors, including genetics, hormonal changes, and environmental factors like humidity and heat.
People with oily skin often have larger pores, which can become clogged with sebum, dead skin cells, and bacteria, leading to acne breakouts and other skin issues.
Why Our Australian Jojoba is Amazing for Oily Skin
Jojoba is actually a wax ester & not an oil
Jojoba is the only plant in the world to hold an identical molecular structure to the oils produced in our skin. This means the skin is more receptive to its nutrients and antioxidants
Jojoba provides long-lasting moisturisation
Our Jojoba is clinically proven to provide up to 8 hours of moisturisation*. Your skin will stay hydrated for longer and will benefit from vitamins A, D & E, as well as omegas 6 & 9
Jojoba is quick absorbing
Our Jojoba absorbs into the skin super quickly, so you'll never have to worry about dealing with that greasy feeling
Jojoba rebalances oil production
Many times, oily skin is dehydrated which is why the skin overcompensates by producing excess sebum. Applying a wax ester like Jojoba will help tell the skin that it's hydrated enough, rebalancing the natural oil levels. (This also works great if you have oily hair too!)
Jojoba is non-comedogenic
Jojoba won't clog the pores, so you can apply it to the skin without worrying about causing breakouts
