Jojoba oil is a liquid wax extracted from the nut of an indigenous American shrub (Buxus chinensis or Simmondsia chinensis (Link.) C. Schneider, family Buxaceae), provides a broad spectrum of fatty acids such as oleic, linoleic, linolenic and arachidonic, as well as triglycerides which have good compatibility with the natural sebum in the skin . Jojoba oil has effect on E. coli, pseudomonas species, klebsiella species and Staphylococcus aureus.
Below is the summary of Hanan M Sobhy's article titled:
Against Antibacterial and Antifungal Activity of Jojoba Wax Liquid (Simmondsia chinensis)
“Plants are a rich source of bioactive compounds. Herein we evaluate the value of crude jojoba oil (J.O) as an antimicrobial agent in vitro. J.O was tested for potential antimicrobial activity against Bacillus subtilis, Staphylococcus aureus, Proteus vulgaris, P. mirabilis, Salmonella typhimurium, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Candida albicans and Asperigillus flavus. Our results did not show any effect on fungi or yeast. However, a significant antibacterial activity was observed against B. subtilis, S. aureus, P. vulgaris, P. mirabilis. A high activity was observed for J.O at Minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) level of 12.5 mg/ml. Interestingly, S. typhimurium, E. coli and Ps. aeruginosa were found to be highly resistant. These results, suggest that J.O may have a medicinal potential as natural antibacterial agents.”
