Can jojoba oil kill the acne causing bacteria? I've read that it has antibacterial properties on websites such as livestrong, but I am hesitant to believe it. Does anybody have anymore information?

Sorry for digging up an old post, but I am also reading about this. Just Google 'jojoba oil antibacterial' and you will find tons of info. I just started using this stuff and it almost seems too good to be true. I just put like 2-4 drops with my CeraVe moisturizerand it works great.

Breaks me and others out, so I'd say no. It doesn't break out some people though.
Please only PM me if it's something that cannot be talked about on the thread or is highly personal. This way, everyone benefits.

It works like a charm for me. Is amazing to my skin, and definitely doesn't break me out - guess it all depends, eh.

Jojoba oil is an anti-fungal, and as far as we know, doesn't exhibit any anti-bacterial effects. (that is, no studies have been conducted analyzing its effects as an anti-bacterial agent).

For an antibacterial oil, the best is definitely Tea Tree Oil.

I've tried several times to use jojoba, but it breaks me out too. i asked my esthetician about it, and she said she didn't care for jojoba in face products, even though it has many other uses.
