Jojoba oil contains several therapeutic characteristics that may make it useful in treating skin issues such as acne and dryness. It moisturizes the skin, regulates natural oil production, provides antioxidant protection, has anti-inflammatory qualities, and can aid in acne reduction. Jojoba oil is an excellent emollient, which helps soften and smooth your skin. Jojoba oil is high in flavonoids and vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant that protects the skin from oxidative damage, which adds to the appearance of aging.
