Some call jojoba oil the miracle ingredient. There’s good reason for that, though. This nectar of the gods is fantastic for every part of your body. Your beard is no exception. No matter what your beard concerns are, jojoba can help. At Kingsmen Beard Club, we love this ingredient so much that we put it in our beard oil, beard butter, beard balm, and mustache wax. But let us tell you why!
The jojoba plant is a tiny little bush. At first glance, it’s not very impressive. It’s when we take a closer look at this shrub that the miracles start happening. The scientific name for jojoba is simmondsia chinensis but it goes by many different nicknames. It’s been called the goat nut, the deer nut and the pignut. Some refer to it as wild hazel and others know it as the coffeeberry bush. Whatever you refer to it doesn’t really matter though, because this little shrub has some mighty powers.
Jojoba is native to the southwestern US and Mexico and the first to discover the many benefits of its oil were Native Americans. They would heat the seeds up and then grind them in a mortar and pestle to create a sort of balm. This balm had healing and moisturizing properties when applied to the skin. According to recent studies, jojoba has the ability to stimulate collagen production, which can help heal wounds and scars faster. While the Native Americans didn’t have this scientific data, they certainly understood the healing power of jojoba.
Naturally, the oil of the jojoba seed contains vitamin E, vitamin B complex, iodine, and fatty acids. The composition of jojoba oil makes it perfect for conditioning the skin and hair which was another way our Native ancestors used it. They even used the oil to preserve and condition animal hides.
One lesser known benefit of jojoba oil is that it can suppress your appetite. Native warriors would often chew on the seeds on long treks so they could prevent feeling hunger.
It was also believed that jojoba could assist in many aspects of childbirth, so, in native culture, mamas-to-be would consume the seeds.
Today, jojoba oil is produced commercially, mostly for the cosmetics industry and brings in a booming $140 million per year. That’s because the benefits of regular use of jojoba oil comes with seemingly endless benefits.

This is a key benefit for an ingredient in products that are used on the hair because many of us use heat to style and dry our locks. If you blowdry your beard or frequently use a heated beard brush, products with jojoba oil can reduce heat damage.
