"matching a good skin care regimen with a healthy lifestyle is the best way to slow the signs of ageing."
Jojoba oil is a natural moisturiser and emollient that is similar to human sebum. It is quickly absorbed by the pores and hair follicles and keeps oil levels balanced and reduces trans epidermal water loss, leaving skin soft and supple.
Young-looking, firm and smooth skin is simply not possible without collagen. The older your skin gets, the less collagen it produces. Jojoba Oil has a high concentration of antioxidants that are naturally anti-ageing, including vitamins E (improves skin elasticity and stimulates collagen production) and B (combats free radicals and increases cell turnover to delays signs of ageing, such as dark spots and wrinkles).
This powerful combination of vitamins and antioxidants can penetrate deep into the dermis of the skin, where it stimulates collagen production and healthy tissue growth. Early studies strongly suggest that Jojoba Oil can communicate with skin cells and prevent toxins, which penetrate them from doing harm. It mimics the cells’ natural communication systems that tell cells what to do.
Jojoba oil tells skin cells to boost collagen production naturally. This makes it a super-effective anti-ageing treatment, whereas other manufactured products that contain animal tissue derived collagen may be too thick to properly penetrate the skin.
Jojoba Oil works from the inside out to increase collagen production, which in turn can slow drastically premature ageing and wrinkles.
