Jojoba Oil is an essential ingredient in many beard care products due to its numerous benefits for the skin. While most beard care products aim to soften the beard hair, it is equally essential to look after the skin underneath the beard.
In this article, we will explore the many benefits of Jojoba Oil in beard care products and why it is a powerhouse ingredient.
We include Jojoba Oil in all our beard care products because it is an absolute powerhouse ingredient! Now, as you will see below, Jojoba has a lot of benefits for the skin, which makes it an excellent addition to any beard care product.
On the ingredients section of our beard care product, this ingredient is labelled: Simmondsia Chinensis Seed Oil, the INCI (International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients) name of this ingredient. One of the reasons you may not recognise some of the terms is that they are written in Latin. INCI labelling is required in the UK, under the UK Cosmetics Regulation (EC) No. 1223/2009 (UKCR).
What is Jojoba Oil?
The Jojoba plant, indigenous to southern Arizona, southern California, and north-western Mexico, produces a liquid called Jojoba Wax found in its seeds. The wax is processed to extract the oil, which is naturally golden.
The Jojoba Oil we use is produced in the middle east on land reclaimed from the desert by ecological irrigation powered by solar, which is re-greening the desert. We use this particular supplier, rather than the cheapest alternative, to support efforts to help the planet we live on.
Why is Jojoba Oil a Powerhouse Ingredient in Beard Care Products?
Jojoba Oil has numerous benefits for the skin, which makes it an excellent addition to any beard care product. Below are the seven most crucial benefits that most beard care manufacturers use Jojoba Oil.
Moisturises the skin: Jojoba oil is similar in structure to the natural oils produced by the skin, making it an excellent moisturiser. It absorbs quickly and deeply into the skin, leaving it soft and supple.
Soothes dry and irritated skin: Jojoba oil has anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce redness, inflammation, and irritation caused by eczema and rosacea.
Helps control oily skin: Excess sebum production can clog pores and lead to a breakout in spots. Jojoba oil helps to regulate the skin's oil production by dissolving excess sebum.
Fights acne: Jojoba oil has antibacterial properties that can help prevent acne-causing bacteria from thriving on the skin.
Helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles: Jojoba oil is rich in antioxidants and essential fatty acids that help promote collagen production, improving skin elasticity and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Natural protection from the sun: Jojoba uniquely produces pure liquid wax esters. These long molecules are layered on the outer surface of its leaves, providing a natural defence against the penetration of UVB rays. As a result, Jojoba Oil is recognised as a natural way to protect the skin from the harmful effects of the sun.
- Packed with goodness: Jojoba is rich in Vitamin A, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B6, and Vitamin E, making it a superfood for the beard.
Considering all the above, you can see why many skin care manufacturers include Jojoba Oil. All of our Beard Oil bases contain Jojoba Oil.
How to Use Jojoba Oil in Beard Care?
You may suffer from the dreaded "Beard Itch" when starting your beard journey. If you are looking for tips on coping with this stage, we covered this in a previous article: Looking After Your Beard and Soothing the Damn Itchiness!
You can apply Jojoba Oil directly to the beard and skin underneath it or use beard care products that contain this powerhouse ingredient. Using a single base oil on the skin can help ease the symptoms if you suffer severely from Seborrheic Dermatitis. However, it is essential to note that there is not enough evidence to confirm or deny the possibility that Jojoba Oil could resolve Seborrheic Dermatitis symptoms. What works for some may not work for others, and if your condition worsens, you should seek medical assistance. You may need a medicinal shampoo to treat the issue.
Jojoba Oil has become a highly sought-after ingredient in beard care products, and for a good reason. Its ability to moisturise and nourish the skin makes it essential to any beard care routine. The oil is easily absorbed by the skin, making it an effective moisturiser that leaves the skin soft and supple.
The oil's anti-inflammatory properties can reduce redness, inflammation, and irritation caused by eczema and rosacea, relieving those with sensitive skin.
Jojoba Oil also has antibacterial properties, so one would also presume this would help keep your beard clean and squash the argument that beards are dirty.
As we age, fine lines and wrinkles become more visible. Jojoba Oil is rich in antioxidants and essential fatty acids that help promote collagen production, improving skin elasticity and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
So, in conclusion, Jojoba Oil is an excellent addition to any beard care product due to its many benefits for the skin. It moisturises the skin, soothes dry and irritated skin, helps control oily skin, fights acne, helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, provides natural protection from the sun, and is packed with goodness. By using beard care products with Jojoba Oil or applying it directly to the skin, you can keep your beard looking healthy and your skin feeling soft and supple. So, make sure to incorporate Jojoba Oil into your beard care routine and enjoy its many benefits.
