Need some moisture in that skin? Most of us do.
Rich with a giant list of fatty acids and Vitamins A and E, Jojoba may be the answer you’ve been looking for. Straight out-the-seed of the Jojoba plant comes a goldish clear liquid that is solely responsible for about 50% of the weight of the seed. Jojoba can also be ingested although it is relatively untouched by the mammal body which makes for a fantastic laxative.
The real benefit lies in the chemical makeup of the oil. Jojoba oil is so closely related to our own human sebum – compliments of our sebaceous glands buried beneath the skin. This simple fact (along with other benefits) has almost driven all animal fats out of moisturizing products on the market. Additionally, Jojoba has a super low melting point which means it’s always liquid and easy to utilize on pretty much any part of the body, especially the hair, and even tattoos! Jojoba oil naturally carries antimicrobial qualities meaning that it can keep your fresh ink (mostly the wound part) safe while moisturizing at the same time. Jojoba oil won’t clog pores either!
Still need some more convincing? Hate keeping moisturizer on your hands because you’re a dude and it makes every task that much harder to complete? Like opening doors and jars? Jojoba oil is absorbed very quickly – if you can maintain two minutes of patience twice a day, your hands won’t crack so easily and you’ll keep your fingernails pretty soft!
