Jojoba beads are tiny spherical granules made from the wax esters of the jojoba plant. These beads are commonly used in skincare products due to their gentle exfoliating properties and ability to improve skin texture and appearance.
Here are some of the skin care benefits of jojoba beads:
Gentle Exfoliation: Jojoba beads provide gentle exfoliation to the skin without causing irritation or damage. They effectively remove dead skin cells and unclog pores, leaving the skin smooth and radiant.
Non-Irritating: Unlike some other exfoliants, jojoba beads are non-irritating and safe for all skin types. They are particularly beneficial for sensitive and acne-prone skin, as they do not cause redness or inflammation.
Moisturizing: Jojoba beads contain natural oils that help to moisturize the skin while exfoliating. This helps to prevent dryness and flakiness, leaving the skin soft and supple.
Anti-Aging: Jojoba beads contain antioxidants that help to protect the skin against free radicals and environmental damage. This can help to reduce the signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles.
Sustainable: Jojoba beads are a sustainable alternative to plastic microbeads, which are harmful to the environment. Jojoba is a renewable resource and its beads are biodegradable, making them an eco-friendly choice for skincare products.
Overall, incorporating jojoba beads into your skincare routine can provide numerous benefits for your skin, including gentle exfoliation, moisturization, anti-aging properties, and sustainability.
BOTANICAL NAME: Simmondsia sinensis
DESCRIPTION: Jojoba is a perennial shrub or small tree that grows in the arid and semi-dry desert regions of southern California, southern Arizona and northern Mexico. Its unique make-up of pure monounsaturated liquid wax esters consisting of long chains of fatty acids and alcohols makes jojoba a golden liquid wax rather than an oil. Native Americans have used jojoba for its healing properties for centuries. The Pueblo tribe, native to Mexico and southwestern U.S.A used the wax from the crushed seeds for their hair and skin. Jojoba plants have been grown commercially since 1979. Jojoba wax in its fully hydrogenated form is referred to as Jojoba beads. Jojoba beads are perfectly spherical in shape and are odourless and colourless. They are perfect exfoliators as they are gentle on the skin and are effective without being abrasive. The beads are 100% biodegradable.
