Jojoba Oil

Cruz Hemp Jojoba Oil

Jojoba oil offers a wide range of health benefits due to its anti-inflammatory and antifungal properties. It can be used to treat athlete’s foot, speed up wound healing, and act as a skin cleanser.

Origins

The hardy Jojoba plant has been growing wild right under our noses, but only recently have we discovered what a rich source of valuable oil this plant produces. The Jojoba plant was first discovered by Native Americans who utilized its liquid wax as oil in food and medicine, especially for treating wounds. Jojoba is extracted as a waxy substance and is then refined into a thin wax with an oil consistency. Although the history of Jojoba oil use dates back hundreds of years, it became popular about 40 years ago. Native to the United States and Mexico, Jojoba is growing vigorously in southern California, southern Arizona, and northern Mexico. 

The Jojoba plant is a hardy shrub that grows well on arid land. The slow-growing seeds are produced by the female plant. Cultivated for small-scale applications, Jojoba oil is mostly harvested for cosmetic and skincare products. Cruz Hemp Jojoba oil is extracted by cold pressing Jojoba seeds from the Jojoba tree. About 50 percent of the weight of each Jojoba seed is made up of its precious oil. Our Jojoba oil provides a moisturizing, protective, base for Cruz Hemp formulas. We infuse our Jojoba oil with superior CBD isolate and a blend of therapeutic grade essential oils for nourishing plant-based skincare solutions.

Properties

The use of Jojoba oil began to flourish in the 1980s as the use of spermaceti, a waxy substance found in whale heads and whale oil, commonly used in cosmetics, was banned due to the reduction in sperm whale populations. Where spermaceti was widely used in cosmetics, the ban forced cosmetic manufacturers to search for alternatives. By the mid-1980s, major cosmetic companies were using Jojoba oil in their skin and hair care products. An environmentally sustainable alternative, Jojoba oil’s many benefits were recognized and its uses in beauty products became widespread. Products containing Jojoba oil have begun to pop up in health food stores and beauty salons all over the country.

Jojoba oil offers a wide range of health benefits due to its anti-inflammatory and antifungal properties. You may use on your face and body to protect your skin barrier from harmful bacteria and balance your skin’s natural oil production. Jojoba oil is hypoallergenic, making it ideal for sensitive skin and gentle skincare formulas. It is exceptional for its ability to reduce blemishes while keeping skin hydrated. Its high vitamin E and B-complex rapidly repair skin damage. It aids in soothing sunburns and hydrates the stressed skin barrier reducing the chances of peeling.

Common Jojoba Oil Uses

Jojoba oil is a carrier oil, meaning it can be combined with other essential oils that should not be applied directly to the skin without dilution. Cruz Hemp Icy Relief Body Oil Roll-on combines Jojoba oil with superior CBD and therapeutic essential oils. Our Jojoba oil infusions are nutrient-rich, purifying, and formulated to work seamlessly in your beauty regimen. From shampoo and conditioner, to face masks, and tinctures, it continues to prove its effectiveness even on sensitive skin.
