It’s packed with antioxidants:
Jojoba oil naturally contains antioxidants, including vitamin E. Antioxidants help counteract the daily damage of free radicals. You can get them through your diet by eating colorful fruits and vegetables and by applying antioxidant-rich products to your skin.

Remember how oil is non-comedogenic? Those same properties can help regulate your skin’s oil production. Your skin adjusts sebum production based on the moisture it perceives. If you use it, the skin reduces the overall amount of sebum it produces. Consequently, this fabulous oil can help regulate oil production, which is especially helpful if you have oily skin.
It can kill some bacteria and fungi:
