Emollient, non-fragrant oil similar to other non-fragrant plant oils. Jojoba oil has been shown to enhance skin's barrier repair properties and ability to heal from damage (Sources: Skin Research and Technology, August 2012, pages 364–369; Journal of Ethnopharmacology, March 2011, pages 443–449). As a plant oil that's a rich source of fatty acids skin recognizes and can use, jojoba oil also seems to stimulate collagen production and help skin better defend itself against UV light damage (Source: Der Hautarzt, July 2008, pages 557-562). Jojoba oil can also provide topical anti-inflammatory benefits (Source: Journal of Italian Dermatology and Venereology, December 2013, pages 687–691).
