story begins

The Jojoba (pronounced ho-ho-ba) plant is native to Mexico and it has been used for centuries by Native Americans as a herbal remedy. Jojoba oil, obtained from pressing the seeds of the Jojoba plant, has been used by Native Americans on skin and hair to counteract the harsh and drying effects of living under the desert sun. It is also been used to treat other topical ailments such as cuts, sores and bruises.

Jojoba oil has been used extensively for over three decades in cosmetic products by major manufacturers around the world from Europe, the United States and Japan due to its efficacy.

Structurally, Jojoba oil is a straight-chain wax ester, and is more similar to the sebum produced naturally by human skin than as compared to other vegetable oils. This means it is hypoallergenic and 100% safe to use, while also being more readily absorbed by the human skin. Jojoba oil is also extremely stable and will neither decompose upon exposure to light or heat, nor oxidise or turn rancid easily.

Scientific studies have shown the anti-inflammatory, emollient, antibacterial and antifungal properties of Jojoba oil, and it is also non-comedogenic (does not clog pores), non-greasy, hypoallergenic and immediately absorbed by the skin upon application. Hence, it is no surprise that Jojoba oil is suitable for use on all skin types.

Be Jojoba Oil

Be Jojoba Oil contains a multitude of essential nutrients that are beneficial for the skin, including minerals, amino acids, antioxidants and Vitamins A, C and E. Be Jojoba Oil forms a natural protective film on the skin upon application, which protects it from damaging elements such as UV rays and free radicals while also locking in moisture to prevent skin from drying out too easily. It effectively penetrates deep into the epidermal layer while restoring the skin’s natural PH balance and its oil secretion, effectively making your skin smooth, supple and firm.

In addition to its emollient effects, scientific studies have also extensively documented the antibacterial, antifungal and anti-inflammatory properties of Jojoba Oil. As such, Be Jojoba Oil is also ideal for treating acne without drying out or damaging the skin like many traditionally prescribed medications. It is also effective for people with sensitive skin and conditions such as dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis and fungal infections. Be Jojoba Oil is also excellent for hair care and is effective against dry hair and split ends.

In a scientific study conducted by the A.O.C.S. (American Oil Chemists’ Society), Jojoba Oil was shown to increase skin suppleness by 45% in vivo, with effects still evident after 8 hours. The emollient effects of Be Jojoba Oil can also be seen below*, reducing fine lines and wrinkles and making skin more smooth, supple and radiant. Tests conducted by Michigan University also demonstrated Jojoba Oil’s significant inhibitory effects in vitro, on 5 of the most common skin bacteria and various types of skin fungi, none of which were able to survive in a solution of Jojoba oil.
