Battle of the All-natural Oils: Jojoba vs. Coconut
Shopping for the best organic and natural products can be confusing. In a battle between jojoba and coconut oil (Or as we like to say, good versus evil. Wink, wink.), jojoba wins out every time.
It’s bio-similar to the skin’s natural moisture.
Jojoba oil is one of only two substances on the planet that are bio-similar to our skin’s natural wax (or sebum, technically speaking) – the other being whale oil.
Needless to say, farming jojoba seeds is a better skin care solution than the eradication of the whale population. Besides being renewable, jojoba has a better molecular profile than whale oil, and matches the chemical structure of the skin. So it absorbs immediately, instead of sitting on the skin like some of your plant-based alternatives.
Check your expiration date.
On top of that, jojoba oil never expires so requires no preservatives. In contrast, coconut oil can go rancid after a period of time. Most plant-based oils, such as coconut and almond oil, are triglycerides that will degrade and become rancid over time. Pure Jojoba is a natural alternative that’s safe, organic and not susceptible to degradation or going rancid. Plus it’s closest to the natural makeup of our skin!
Not a fan of coconut? No problem!
Because of its similarity to the skin’s natural moisture, jojoba is considered one of the primary carrier oils for things like high-quality cosmetics and essential oils. That allows us to infuse Pure Jojoba with a variety of essential oils to add a light, natural scent without any chemical additives. So you can get Pure Jojoba with lavender, sweet orange, rose geranium or eucalyptus essential oil.
