The minute you get back from the beach, reality hits. Your skin starts to burn, flake, and peel. And all you want is relief. Nourishing after-sun products can immediately soothe the skin from the stinging of sunburn.
Anti-Inflammatory Effects of Jojoba Oil in Sun Care Products
Jojoba oil aligns with customer demand for clean beauty; it can repair and moisturize irritated and sun-damaged skin. In a study published by R. Habashy in the Pharmacological Research journal, it was found that Jojoba oil applied on irritated skin exerts anti-inflammatory activity similar to an anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) used to relieve pain and swelling—which can be especially useful in after-sun products.
After-Sun Healing Effects of Jojoba Oil
Jojoba oil is safe to use on all skin types, even on sun-injured skin, assisting the skin in its rejuvenating process. In a study published by E. Ranzato in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology, it was found that Jojoba oil accelerates wound healing by stimulating collagen synthesis in in vivo tissues. As shown in the image below, the addition of just 1% Jojoba oil accelerated the wound healing in comparison to the control solution.
Boosting Stability in Sun Care
Stability is a huge benefit for sun care products, as consumers in many parts of the world utilize sun care products on an irregular or seasonal basis, and need the product to maintain efficacy longer in the bottle.
A recent study showed just how beneficial adding JD Jojoba oil to a formulation was for a product’s stability. The oxidative stability of different vegetable oils was tested by the commonly used Rancimat method, and in this experiment, JD Jojoba oil showed the highest oxidation stability among tested oils. Its exceptional stability is attributed to the unique chemical structure – straight chain esters, compared to other vegetable oils with a branched triglyceride structure that tends to oxidative degradation.
