Okay, so...

I hope this is the right place to ask. Anyway, what I don't really get about Jojoba oil is... it supposedly regulates your skin's oil production (which is debatable), and is non-comedogenic but isn't it the oil in your face that stimulates bacterial growth in the first place? What makes jojoba oil any better to apply than the oil which is already produced in excess by your body?

As far as I'm aware, it is the combination of the certain type of bacteria which is on everyones skin plus a BLOCKED pore (natural sebum and skin cells) which creats zits. Jojoba oil lubricates the skin and loosens blackheads but does not actually block pores. Because the skin is lubricated your skin produced less sebum and you don't get so many blocked poes/zits. You may still have the bacteria but without a blockage they do no harm.
