Best Homemade Facial Cleansers that Contain Jojoba Oil
There are many benefits to using homemade facial cleansers that contain Jojoba Oil. As an acne sufferer for many years, I became extremely frustrated trying different cleansers that seemed to always strip and dry out my skin, nevertheless not working on my mild cystic acne.
The Jojoba plant grows in extremely dry climates in Israel and Egypt. The oil extracted from this plant is really a wax but it feels like an oil.
Jojoba oil soothes the skin while it unclogs hair follicles. It is noncomedogenic so you don’t have to worry about the Jojoba Oil cleanser clogging your pores.
With Jojoba Oil being very similar to our own skin’s stratum corneum (the outermost layer of the epidermis), the Jojoba Oil will keep the skin hydrated by preventing water evaporation.
From my experience, applying Jojoba oil directly to the skin without mixing it was too powerful and drying because the Jojoba Oil is mildly astringent.
The cleanser that I finally came up with smells great, is creamy in texture and softens your skin while cleansing. It also contains olive oil, and geranium oil. All my products only have a natural preservative and are not made in big heated machines that destroy the integrity of the ingredients.
