jojoba oil

Everyone has actually heard it before, but what do you know about the golden oil that you see so often in advertisements? We have put together the facts about jojoba oil, its effect, application and benefits in this article for you.


Actually, the name jojoba oil is wrong! If you look at the structure of jojoba oil, you can see that, chemically speaking, it is actually a liquid wax that is extracted from the nut of the jojoba bush . No triglycerides like a traditional fatty oil. However, since the name jojoba wax would just be confusing, we will stick with the colloquial name jojoba oil.

Our PureBee jojoba oil is cold-pressed from Israeli jojoba nuts and bottled in our own factory in Baden-Württemberg. It is very light and well known for its moisturizing & nourishing properties. Our natural skin lipids have a very similar structure, which makes it very well tolerated by our skin. The wax structure makes it extremely stable and, in comparison to other oils, particularly durable, even without added preservatives. It's full of provitamin A, beta-carotene and valuable B and E vitamins. That is why it has a nice stabilizing effect on the protective barrier of our skin. In this way, the valuable ingredients get deep into the skin layers, but at the same time important transepidermal moisture is prevented from being lost. And because jojoba oil is also non-comedogenic (comedogenicity level 1) and regulates sebum production, impure, combination and very dry skin in particular benefit from this wax. Microorganisms cannot spread well, so germs have no place to settle.


1. Jojoba oil for more moisture
Here the jojoba oil follows the same principle as our oleogels. It helps form the hydrolipidic film on the skin that is responsible for moisture regulation. No water is supplied to the skin from the outside and the increase in skin moisture occurs from the inside, since transepidermal water loss is prevented. In contrast to our oleogels, which are more suitable for dry to normal skin, jojoba oil suits all skin types, including impure or oily skin, which brings us to our second point...

2. Jojoba for blemishes, acne and oily skin
Even if you have oily or impure skin and want to avoid all oils as skin care products, jojoba is an exception. With regular and prolonged use, oily, impure or even acne-affected skin can even be rebalanced. The functional principle is as follows: As we have already mentioned, jojoba oil is very similar to our skin's own lipids. In the case of oily or impure skin, these lipids are overactive. With constant use of jojoba oil, the skin is then fooled into thinking that it has already produced enough fat. The overproduction is then balanced and the overloaded pores can relax a little.

3. Versatile
Jojoba oil is incredibly versatile and suitable for all skin types. Whether as hair and scalp care, make-up remover, body, massage and bath oil, nail and lip care - it simply must not be missing in any routine.
4. Natural vitamin cocktail for the skin

Jojoba oil is full of provitamin A, beta-carotene and valuable B and E vitamins. Vitamin E is particularly well-known here as a cell protector. It catches the so-called "free radicals" that attack the cells and lead to premature aging of the skin. Provitamin A as a precursor of the essential vitamin A ensures the renewal of the skin and keeps the young cells fresh and healthy. B vitamins have an influence on the nerve cells, the protein metabolism and the oxygen supply in the blood. The vitamins B5 and B6 contained in jojoba oil regulate the body's sebum production and keep the skin young and clear.


Our PureBee jojoba oil can be used in many ways. Whether skin, hair, lips or nails - everything is possible!

It should be noted that your skin should be slightly damp before you apply the oil. This allows it to emulsify with the moisture and penetrate deeper into the skin layers. We don't want a greasy film on the skin! Speak to the face, after cleansing or the serum (water-based), but also to the body after a soothing shower, gently massage a few drops in circular movements. Another possibility would be to put a few drops of the oils in the bath water. In this way, your skin is additionally cared for. But be careful, it can get slippery!
Our hair also benefits from jojoba oil. Either as a leave-in product or as a hair and scalp treatment. Massage some oil into towel-dried hair after washing. A small amount does not weigh you down and makes your hair shine! We recommend a nourishing hair & scalp treatment about 1-2 times a week. Apply the oil generously to the scalp and hair in the evening and leave it on for at least 2 hours (or overnight). Then rinse thoroughly. Eyelashes, eyebrows and beard are also happy about oils. Simply apply to the desired areas in the evening and let it soak in overnight - for more fullness and a velvety soft feeling! But the same applies here: the proof of the pudding is in the eating!
