Argan Oil vs Jojoba Oil

Two of the most popular oils in the private label skincare industry today are Jojoba and Argan. You can find them in everything from hair care products to body lotions and face oils. Both are touted as moisturizing oils that won t clog pores and help keep the skin smooth and hair frizz free. We ll admit, we like them both, and include both of them in our various private label skincare offerings. When sourced responsibly and used appropriately, each oil provides phenomenal benefits for both hair and skin.

First, some background: Jojoba oil typically comes to us from Arizona, California and parts of Mexico. It is technically not an oil but a plant wax with a beautiful golden color and chemical makeup incredibly similar to human sebum. Argan oil typically comes from Morocco and is especially popular as a hair oil, though you can also find it in facial serums and similar private label skincare products.

When used on your skin, both oils make great moisturizers. Depending on your lifestyle and skin condition, you might prefer one over the other. Here at RainShadow Labs, we tend to lean a little more toward Jojoba when it comes to moisturizing the face and body, but that s just our preference! Wonderful oil based private label skincare lines focusing on Argan do exist and their customers are very happy. If you re not sure which you prefer, just try them both and see!

Despite both oils being great moisturizers for the skin, Argan excels in the hair moisturizing department. Thus, if you re looking to buy or make your own hair care, you might want to include Argan. And that includes if you use or sell a beard oil! Both oils can help with frizz control, and Jojoba is said to be extra helpful for those with dandruff.

For facial cleansing, Jojoba oil s incredible similarity to your skin s natural sebum is a win, and it also has antibacterial and dirt dissolving properties making it extra effective for oil cleansing and removing makeup. It s one of the reasons why people like to use it if they have acne. With that said, Argan oil contains a polyphenol reported to help skin cells turnover, which is great for anti-aging. Both oils contain beneficial essential fatty acids, and Jojoba oil is particularly rich in vitamin E.
