Absorption

Absorption describes how well a substance penetrates your skin. Here we measure absorption in terms of its rate of penetration into your skin. How fast did it absorb? Some products don't absorb well, and instead "sit" on top of skin forming a film, which can range from light to heavy. If you still have a layer of product sitting on top of your skin, the rate would be considered Very Slow.

Love this jojoba oil for my skin. Has really helped with my breakouts. I breakout less and notice less oil in my t-zone area. Never thought of an oil to help but this does work!

I have been using jojoba oil- just a touch, with a cotton swab- on problem areas and it has really seemed to help "melt" or absorb my excess oil. It's especially effective with the hardened sebaceous areas under my skin, in the nodule-forming stage. I've read that it's very similar to the skin's oils so can "level out" the sebum more effectively. I'm using it along with an evening prescription gel.
