What is Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil?

Simmondsia Chinensis Seed Oil, which is more widely known as Jojoba seed oil is an oil derived from the seeds of the jojoba plant, which offers a whole range of benefits for your skin.

What are the benefits of Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil for your skin?

  1. Protection from sun damage: Jojoba seed oil acts as a natural barrier against solar-induced damage caused by UV radiation. It helps to shield your skin from the harmful effects of sun exposure, reducing the risk of sunburn, premature ageing, and other types of sun damage.
  1. Smoothing of Skin Texture: Jojoba seed oil has emollient properties that help smoothen skin roughness, leaving the skin feeling softer and younger. Regular use can contribute to an improvement in your skin’s overall texture and tone.
  1. Reduction of Solar-induced Wrinkles and UV Spots: By providing a protective layer and supporting the skin's natural regeneration processes, Jojoba Seed Oil helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and UV spots which have been caused by prolonged sun exposure.
  1. Reduction of Advanced Glycation End-products (AGEs): AGEs are compounds which form when sugars react with proteins in the skin, leading to ageing-related changes. Jojoba seed oil helps to reduce the formation of these AGEs.  Jojoba seed oil also interferes with the signalling pathways involved in AGE formation, further preventing age-related damage to the skin.
  1. Enhancement of Cellular Antioxidant: Jojoba seed oil also boosts the skin's natural antioxidant defences, helping to neutralise harmful free radicals and detoxify AGEs, which both contribute to skin ageing.
