    Post Jojoba Oil

    I bought some jojoba oil the other day, after reading that member Sedulous used it, and found out some amazing stuff! I've always looked for a moisturizer that didn't have a ton of chemicals in it and oils. Here is some copy and pasted info from websites, with the url's afterwards...

    "Jojoba oil not block pores, cause blackheads or promote acne.
    It is suspected that jojoba oil "tricks" the skin into stopping the production of sebum through somehow mimicking sebum. This also means that jojoba oil will assist in breaking down sebum in plugged-up pores. Sebum and jojoba oil will mix readily without sealing off the skin pores.

    Dermatologists have also reported jojoba oil's non-irritating use for acne. Other materials such as mineral oil can cause anaerobic microbial growth and inflammation redness and swelling in and around pores. Jojoba oil will not cause blackheads that contribute to acne.

    Thorough studies have also shown that jojoba oil is non-irritating to the eyes and skin. The skin rapidly absorbs the jojoba oil, thus pores and hair follicles remain open and can function freely. Another remarkable property is that jojoba oil is non-greasy and leaves no oily after-feel.

    Anti-bacterial properties of Jojoba Oil
    Professor Zille of Port Elizabeth University carried out further studies on the anti-bacterial effects of jojoba oil and the results were presented at a Coshem Congress held at Mintek. Tests at Michigan University showed that five of the most common skin bacteria plus certain skin fungi couldn't survive in jojoba oil.

    Studies on jojoba oil at the University of Michigan supports the conclusion that 5 of the most common bacteria, including staphylococcus aureus and pseudomonas aeruginosus as well as the fungus candida albicans were not capable of growing in jojoba oil.

    The medicinal working of jojoba oil was studied at the Pharmaceutical Department at the University of Port Elizabeth and found that jojoba oil destroys the bacteria staphylococcus and pseudomonas within 1 hour and 15 minutes. Studies on jojoba oil at the Ben Gurion University in Israel have shown that jojoba oil relieves the symptoms of psoriases.

    Some of the results of jojoba oil might sound like pure hype to you - but try jojoba oil yourself and see the results, or have a look at our products that include jojoba oil as an ingredient." [url=""][/url]

    "Jojoba is not an oil but a liquid wax; excellent choice for many aromatherapy uses. Most often used as the carrier oil of choice to use with essential oils. A must in all your cream and lotion recipes. It is very stable, having extremely good keeping qualities. Useful oil in cases of acne. Jojoba contains myristic acid, which has anti-inflammatory properties."

    And I won't post a bunch more, just read this website, another really good bunch of facts/info: [url=""][/url]

    I have been using jojoba oil for the past month to moisturize my skin before I go to bed. I absolutely love it! This is probably the first thing I've found that doesn't irritate my overly sensitive skin.
