Do You Support the Opposition to Whale Oil as a Base of Many Cosmetics?
Jojoba oil is one of the oils that have replaced animal fats in the production of skin lotions and creams. Jojoba wax has a low melting point, allowing it to remain liquid at all temperatures. It can also be used directly without dilution unlike a number of oils, making it richer in healing properties.
Since Jojoba is a wax, it does not have as much of a greasy feel as other oils, and it acts as the natural sebum produced by our skin glands. That feature makes it a great natural skin conditioner.
When we wash our face and hands, even with just water, we remove a protective layer of sebum along with dust and dirt. The cold and dry air in the winter, and air-conditioned interiors in summer, dries out our skin at a faster rate than our skin glands can recover their oil supply.
Even worse, soaps and most skin cleaning products strip the skin of the sebum that is naturally produced by our skin glands to lubricate and protect skin from drying out. The consequence is that dehydrated skin becomes vulnerable to irritants that cause dermatitis and more easily attracts bacteria.
It is important to keep your skin hydrated by locking in the moisture and protecting it from the drying effects of the environment. This is why jojoba oil is so great. Due to its similarity to the secretion of the sebaceous glands in our skin, it seals in moisture and creates an effective barrier to protect the skin.
Have a look to ALL OVER FACE + BODY LOTION in our skin collection. This lavender, rosemary, jojoba oil, and blood orange infused lotion is full with essential oils that will leave your face and body feeling hydrated and soft.

Most men have more symptoms of hair shedding and other issues between September and November because the hair follicles enter their resting (telogen) phase mid-summer. This causes more hair than normal to fall out. The follicles will stay in this phase for several months, but the hair will begin to regrow in winter when Mother Nature thinks you need it most.
