Jojoba is the most favored of our carrier oils due to its molecular stability. It does not go rancid, giving it an extensive shelf life. This makes jojoba excellent for extending the shelf life of your blends.
Our certified organic jojoba oil is pressed from the beans of the shrub-like Simmondsia chinensis plant found in the arid climes of the southern United States. Although referred to as an oil, jojoba is actually a liquid wax. Interestingly, jojoba closely resembles our skin’s own sebum—the oily secretions our skin produces to protect itself—making it a natural alternative to moisturizing creams. Jojoba is highly penetrating and contains powerful antioxidants, which means it moisturizes and heals deeply. It also makes a fabulous conditioner for hair and has a great texture for massage oils!
