Ciao bella,

If any part of your skin care regimen includes Jojoba you are in luck! Jojoba Oil is a carrier of Vitamin E which is an antioxidant. Jojoba has been found to mimic the skin’s natural sebum, making it penetrate sufficiently with no greasy feel. Great for sensitive skin, Jojoba Oil is rich in omega 9, a natural source of a fatty acid which promotes regeneration of the skin’s lipid barrier aiding in healing inflammation. An advantage of Jojoba oil’s fatty acid makeup is that it’s less comedogenic (won’t clog your pores) than other fatty acid oils such as coconut.

Jojoba oil is known for its healing, anti-inflammatory and anti-aging elements. It’s odorless and is frequently used in beauty regimens as in cleansers, moisturizers, massage creams, scalp treatments and even baby products. Using topically, Jojoba Oil has been helpful in treating acne, psoriasis, stretch marks, scars, sunburn and hair loss by unclogging follicles. Also a great carrier for essential oils.

Facts on Jojoba: an Italian priest Francisco Clavijero used it in berry form aiding in childbirth and healing wounds. Used for centuries to heal skin conditions and promote hair growth. It wasn’t commercially produced until 1976. Today, Jojoba is used in personal care products around the world. All of 5,000 tons of it is manufactured for its use. It’s a perennial shrub found in the Sonoran desert, northwest Mexico, California and Arizona.

So my Glamazons go out and find your Jojoba!

Buona Giornata and God Bless the USA!
