The Benefits of Jojoba Oil for skin

The Benefits of Jojoba Oil for skin

by Diana Zuban

At Natio, we LOVE Jojoba Oil. A key ingredient in many of our formulations from our kids range through to our mature-skin focused formulas, SPF through to cosmetics and bodycare, Jojoba Oil is both super nourishing and extremely versatile. Beautiful golden drops of goodness, Jojoba Oil offers natural nourishment, nutrition, cellular support and protection for all skin types.  

Yep, she is a real beauty - and we think she deserves both a proper introduction and some solo attention.

Introducing Jojoba Oil

Pronounced ho-HO-ba, Jojoba Oil is derived from from the seeds of the Simmondsia Chinensi plant, native to America and Mexico. And despite the name, the “oil” is actually more like a wax, very similar in structure to our own natural sebum (a key reason our skins love it so much). 

Cherished for centuries for its skin-serving properties, Jojoba Oil is not a new ingredient, but it is one that has stood the test of time and 100% deserves a role in modern skincare formulas and regimens today.  

Here’s why: 

Gentle Cleanser: With a structure similar to the skin's natural sebum, Jojoba Oil gently cleanses without disrupting the skin's natural barrier. Used neat, Jojoba Oil can work as an effective cleanser. Ideal for all skin types – particularly unsettled or sensitive skin – Jojoba Oil gently dissolves makeup and impurities, leaving skin calm, clean and nourished. Simply apply to dry skin, massage in and wipe away residue with a warm, damp flannel. 

Beautifully Balancing Moisturiser: One of the unique qualities of Jojoba Oil is its ability to balance skin moisture. Almost sebum-identical, Jojoba Oil leaves skin feeling nurtured, nourished, non-greasy and beautifully balanced. Whether skin is too dry or excessively oily, naturally emollient Jojoba Oil adapts to its needs, hydrating dry patches while regulating oil production in areas prone to excess sebum. Non-comedogenic, it helps keeps pores clear and functioning smoothly. Pure Jojoba Oil can be used neat as a face oil or a few drops added to your regular moisturiser for an extra-nourishing boost.  

Soothing Superhero: Jojoba Oil offers salvation to skin needing TLC. Hypoallergenic in nature and brimming with natural anti-inflammatory properties, Jojoba Oil is a soothing remedy for irritated or sensitive skin conditions, providing relief and helping restore skin's natural balance. Less is more when it comes to unsettled, sensitive or reactive skin and this versatile single-ingredient formula – pure Jojoba Oil –is especially kind to skin.  

Multivitamin Protector: Rich in antioxidants such as vitamins B, A, E and other essential nutrients such as Omega 3 & 6, Jojoba Oil battles the free radicals that contribute to premature signs of ageing, helping to repair damage to cells and support cellular regeneration. It is also full of amino acids which are the building blocks of collagen. Used regularly, Jojoba Oil – used neat as a face oil, added to your moisturiser, or already present in your regular face oil and moisturiser formulas - can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and leave skin soft and glowing. 


As you can see, Jojoba Oil is a wonderful and exceptionally versatile skincare hero.  From its superb moisturising capabilities to its soothing and smoothing properties, this golden elixir is truly a gift from nature. At Natio, we believe that nature nurtures best and Jojoba Oil is simply golden, glowing proof.
