We’ve taken pure Australian jojoba oil and made it better!
First, we start with jojoba oil …
Many skincare products today contain extract of jojoba and jojoba oil. This all comes from a perennial plant native to North America. It’s now grown in Australia as well and here at Flowerdale Valley, we only use Australian jojoba oil.
Unlike most plants, the resilient jojoba plant can thrive in arid, desert climates. It also produces a nut that has proven to have many powerful healing properties.
These properties are what makes it perfect for use as part of our facial skincare routines. It has numerous benefits, which we’ll get into below, and it works well on all skin types, whether oily, dry, or prone to acne.
5 Benefits of Using Jojoba Oil for Your Facial Skincare Routine
It’s Gentle: Jojoba oil is gentle and so can be used on even sensitive skin. While you should always do a patch test when using new ingredients if you have reactive skin, jojoba oil is typically hypoallergenic.
It Has a Similar Composition to Sebum: Sebum is the natural oil our faces produce throughout the day. This makes it perfect for use with dry skin and acne-prone skin
It’s a Moisturiser: Jojoba oil acts as a humectant, which means it’s an effective way of retaining moisture and preventing problems caused by dry skin, such as dandruff and psoriasis.
It Has Antioxidant Properties: Jojoba oil naturally contains vitamin E, which works as an effective antioxidant. This may be particularly attractive to those living in cities, where the skin is regularly exposed to toxins and pollutants which can cause inorganic free radicals in our skin cells. These free radicals cause damage which often appears in signs of early aging.
It Has Healing Properties: Not only can jojoba oil help to improve skin clearness and control sebum production, but it has also been recognised as a promising ingredient in wound healing in a clinical setting. Its naturally occurring vitamin E helps to bind the skin cells together after a cut or scratch. This means that it can also work to heal skin after breakouts and work to reduce acne scarring.
What skincare ingredients should I pair with jojoba oil?
Jojoba oil is clearly beneficial alone, but we take Australian jojoba oil and add calendula petals, kakadu plums and quandongs. These ingredients are all high in natural vitamin C. These infuse the jojoba oil with their properties, before we filter these out and we are left with pure jojoba oil with extra benefits.
What are these ingredients?
Kakadu Plum – Kadadu plum is a small fruit (also called the billy goat plum or gubinge) found in the Eucalypt woodlands in Northern Australia. It’s an intense source of vitamin C, which helps to brighten the skin and reduce hyperpigmentation that is so common from sun damage and scarring. It also contains antioxidants to defend against further damage.
Calendula petals – these are the subshine yellow petals of marigolds, they are used to treat a myriad of skin conditions. Calendula been proven to speed up wound healing, which makes it an effective treatment for dry skin, acne, eczema, psoriasis, and even irritated skin on babies – so you know it’s good for your face!
Quandong Extract – This small, red plant is part of the sandalwood family, and is also a native plant here in Australia. Quandongs contain the second highest number of antioxidants in any fruit. When used on your skin, they fight free radicals which makes them a powerful combination with Kakadu plum and jojoba oil to protect against sun damage, pollution, and the natural free radicals the body produces.
Vitamin C is essential for healthy collagen and elastin and can help skin to be brighter, more youthful and radiant as well
