Would you like to make your own natural facial cleanser?  Have you heard of using oil to cleanse your face?  Today I'm going to share something that really surprised me — a Jojoba Oil Cleanser.

If you are:

  • Wondering what to use for skin care that does not put harmful chemicals into your skin?
  • Dealing with inflamed skin from rosacea or other conditions?
  • Looking for a low cost alternative to pricey organic skin care options?
  • Hoping to simplify your skin care routine?

then I have a simple and wholesome answer for you: Jojoba Oil Face Cleanser.

I found a regimen like this when I was dealing with a resurgence of rosacea. I had it so bad that I was ashamed to go out of the house. I tried numerous creams and facial products, but some of them were just purely awful (one had a green tint to it to hide the redness of the rosacea – Yuk!) and others simply did not work.

Finally, I read that rosacea can be caused by low stomach acid so I tried some Betaine Hydrochloric Acid (HCl) in supplement form and found that my rosacea disappeared almost immediately! Clearly my digestive system was involved in this problem. Later, however, I found that long term use of HCl is not necessarily a good idea and that working on the root issues with one's digestion is a much better way to go.

That work continues to this day. Once, however, I had a slight flare up of rosacea that led me to a cleansing protocol similar to this one.  I found it on the website of an amazing skincare line, MV Skincare. The people there are amazing and their products are fabulous. Expensive, but fabulous. You may wish to check them out if your budget so affords.

The basis of this routine is jojoba oil for cleansing. It seems counter-intuitive, but there are two reasons why jojoba oil is great for cleansing:

Why Use Jojoba for Cleansing

1.  Oil attracts other oils so cleansing your face with oil really does make sense. You will be amazed at what shows up on your cotton ball at the end of the day.

2.  Jojoba oil is more similar to sebum (the oil in human skin) than is other vegetable oils.  Therefore, it is a natural for using in facial and body are routines.

Here is my version of a very simple and soothing Jojoba and Rose Water Cleansing Routine:

    I discovered your site recently when I was researching therapeutic grade essential oils. I’ve found it very interesting and am placing an order from RMO. I have lots of YL oils and thought they were the best, until now. I’m curious why you recommend another Jojoba oil in your natural facial cleanser. Is it mostly because of the price? I like your honesty and unbiased evaluations. Thanks so much.

    • Hi there and thanks for commenting and reading. Jojoba is supposed to be close to the natural oils in the skin but there are different oils that work differently for everyone. I actually ended up finding that this dried my skin out over time so I am using different cleansers now. I will be writing more about oils including other companies in the future so please stay tuned!
