When it comes to moisturising skin care ingredients, there’s nothing quite like jojoba oil.
Taken from the jojoba bean, this golden wax mimics our skin’s sebum to penetrate the deeper layers and stimulate collagen production. Used for centuries as a natural remedy for wounds and to improve skin elasticity and tone, this hydrating oil is ideal for use during pregnancy, which is why we include it in our very own Motherlover Body Oil.
What’s so special about jojoba oil?
What makes jojoba oil so unique, is its molecular structure that’s so similar to the natural oils produced by our own skin. This means jojoba oil can penetrate the skin beyond the epidermis layer which most oils can’t do. Protecting these layers is essential for effective cell regeneration, treating sensitive skin and helping to minimise and improve the appearance of stretch marks.
How does it help pre and postnatal skin?
While this oil is suitable for all skin types, jojoba is particularly beneficial for dry or sensitive skin, which is so common during pregnancy. Antioxidant rich and filled with essential fatty acids omega 6 and 9, studies have shown that jojoba oil can help to decrease inflammation and boost wound healing which is how it can help in the prevention and care of stretch marks and scarring.
How can you introduce Jojoba oil to your skin during pregnancy?
When it comes to skin hydration, this moisture retaining wonder has you covered from the neck down in our Motherlover Body Oil. Within an antioxidant rich blend of ingredients designed to promote collagen production, calm irritation and relieve stress, the organic jojoba oil included in our pregnancy and postpartum specific body oil make it the ideal daily ritual for mamas to maintain nourished skin.
How can it help with a fresh face?
For a fresh, rejuvenated face, utilising the benefits of jojoba oil, we’ve harnessed it within our recovery mask, The 4am Set. This hydrating mud mask is ideal for skin needing a little wake up after you’ve seen 4am one to many times. Filled with rejuvenating ingredients including Dead Sea Mud, Australian Green Clay and Jojoba Oil, this resurfacing mask will breathe life back into tired skin. We love using this product weekly to maintain glow.
