Organic Natural Jojoba Oil

Add to Personalized Shopping List

Jojoba is a perennial evergreen shrub with a life span of up to 200 years. It grows 1-5 meters in height. Jojoba has broad, thick, waxy, glaucous gray leaves and yellow-green flowers. The hard seed consists of 45-55% liquid wax. This natural liquid wax is similar in properties to sebum and spermaceti oil. It was originally extracted by Native Americans, but actual cultivation of Jojoba for the wax began after the ban of sperm whale oil imports in 1971. Jojoba is highly prized in the cosmetic industry for being very similar to sebum and for its extremely stable life.

Our Organic Jojoba offers the traits and benefits of both an oil and a wax. It is highly emollient and penetrating. It closely resembles the natural sebum within our skin. It does not clog the pores and provides excellent non-occlusive, non-greasy moisture control. It is a good choice for inclusion within facial formulations intended for all skin types as it helps to remove excess oils and helps to balance the skin's natural oil production. Organic Jojoba is very stable and can help extend the shelf life of other lipids present within your formulation.

Organic Jojoba is a natural choice for inclusion within cream, lotion, hair conditioner, balm and massage oil formulations. In cold process soap making, Organic Jojoba acts as a useful superfatting agent since it resists rancidity.

Customer Testimonial

"Each time I use your Web site, I am thrilled with how complex and thorough the information is and yet how intuitive and simple the site is to use. I do the majority of my shopping online and work as part of a huge global company's knowledge distribution arm, so I review and use lots of sites. The FNWL site is the best I have encountered from a consumer prospective. It must take an incredible amount of resources to maintain and I just want to say thank you for going to that level of effort! I have learned so much from reading the detailed product information and loved the items I've purchased. Thank you!"
