Best Jojoba Oil

Jojoba oil is considered something of a carrier oil powerhouse. It’s derived from jojoba seeds, usually by cold-pressing to extract the oil without compromising the oil’s benefits. Because it’s naturally gentle, jojoba doesn’t need dilution, even when applied to sensitive skin. It works as an emollient to soothe dry skin, to unclog hair follicles, and to treat acne, psoriasis, and sunburn. You can use the oil on your scalp and massage into hair to improve greasiness and reduce split ends. Because it’s a carrier oil that mimics the properties of the skin's own moisturizing oils, it’s used to dilute essential oils before application. When shopping for jojoba oil, make sure it’s cold-pressed and undiluted, consider the production methods (cruelty-free, organic, etc.), application, and shelf life. Here are our top picks.
