Can you cure acne with natural oils like jojoba oil?

Jojoba oil can be used as a moisturizer in acne prone skin but it is definitely not a "cure for acne". Although, there is some proof for its effect to wound healing there is no medical evidence to its direct effect on acne. As Jojoba oil is non-comedogenic it can be beneficial as an addition to effective anti-acne treatment (usually with benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid creams).
