Historical Background of Jojoba Oil
Jojoba oil is botanically known as "Simmondsia Chinensis." It is pressed from the Jojoba plant's seeds. Jojoba is typically a shrub which mainly originates in southern California, southern Arizona, and northwestern Mexico. Must keep in mind that Jojoba oil and Jojoba wax are two different things, even though they often use them interchangeably. Jojoba wax is used as a mobile oil, whereas Jojoba oil is a carrier and considered an edible oil.
After collecting the Jojoba plant's seeds, we use a cold-pressing method to yield Jojoba oil, which has a pleasant, refreshing, and soft odor and a Golden to brownish-yellow color.
Ancient Uses of Jojoba Oil
Centuries ago, Jojoba seeds and Jojoba oil were used in traditional medicines and cosmetics. The oil's versatility was revealed in the 20th century when O'odham, a native American tribe who used the oil for healing sores and wounds. Jojoba oil was also used to lubricate and maintain machine guns during World War II. Before that, in the eighteenth century, Native Americans grounded the seeds of Jojoba, mixed the powder in other ointments, and then used it on skin and hair as a natural moisturizer and hair conditioner.
Modern Uses of Jojoba Oil
Today, the use of Jojoba oil is mainly associated with multiple skin and hair conditions. Jojoba oil is a rich source of vitamins and minerals such as vitamin E, vitamin C, B vitamins, zinc, and copper. All these vitamins and minerals are considered hair-nourishing and hair-strengthening components, so the oil may help keep hair safe from breakage, hair loss, dandruff, and dryness.
Jojoba oil is believed to be a humectant ingredient, which means that the oil will never let your skin lose its moisture. Jojoba oil contains decent amounts of vitamin E, so it may help your skin fight oxidative stress and fasten new cells' growth if burns or wounds damage the body. Additionally, Jojoba oil may help your body produce Collagen, which makes you look younger. These are some of the significant reasons why Jojoba oil is so popular today.
