Makeup Gourmet Chris Scott’s series of how-to video tutorials based on his #1 international best seller
Face with a Heart Mastering Authentic Beauty Makeup
When developing my products, the last significant piece was foundation. Being a veteran in the makeup field, my criteria was set extremely high. Until I found a formula that met all my expectations, I was not going to offer a second-rate substitute. Foundation is that important.
Then I (re)discovered jojoba oil. After understanding its properties, I chose it as the ‘slip’ for my foundations.
Here is what makes jojoba oil great.
What makes it so unique compared to other seed oils is that jojoba oil is structurally and chemically very similar to the human sebum. This is because sebum is also largely comprised of wax mono esters, the primary constituent of jojoba oil. In most cases, it can act as a substitute while giving similar or added benefits compared to sebum.
This is what makes jojoba oil ideal for foundation. Our natural skin sebum (oil) and jojoba oil are so identical that they bond almost completely. This is how Jojoba Liquid Foundation makes skin look like skin.
2. Extremely safe to use
Jojoba oil is non-toxic, non-comedogenic and non-allergenic. This means that it will not clog pores and will not cause any allergic reactions. It is also not an irritant, so it can safely be used around the eyes and on the skin. In addition to that, it does not cause a greasy feeling when used on the skin like other oils do.
3. It has a high content of beneficial minerals and Vitamin E
It contains many different varieties of tocopherols which make up Vitamin E and many other natural minerals. Vitamin E is well known for promoting healthy and clear skin.
4. It prevents damage from free radicals
Jojoba oil is an antioxidant and protects you from the damaging effects of free radicals, which is believed to contribute or cause various chronic diseases and cancer.
5. It is antibacterial
Most bacteria including Staphylococcus aureus and the fungus Candida albicans cannot reproduce and die when they come into contact with jojoba oil. In fact, it is so antibacterial that it can be used as a fungicide to control mildew.
I know, a lot of info. It matters how significant any ingredient is if you are going to put it all over your face. That is why I love jojoba oil.
