Jojoba oil is extracted from the seeds of the evergreen jojoba shrub, whose fruit ripen for three to six months before being harvested and processed.
Strictly speaking, jojoba oil is a natural vegetable wax. Its melting point is at approximately 7 °C. This is an excellent property that makes the product especially durable and resistant to oxidation.
Jojoba oil – know what’s inside
Jojoba oil contains a large amount of gadoleic acid, monounsaturated fatty acid, and is rich in vitamin A, B, E and other minerals.
Cosmetics – a boon for skin and hair
The oil is a genuine blessing for the cosmetics sector: it heals as well as it nurtures. Jojoba oil lends a healthy sheen to hair; it nourishes the scalp, prevents split ends and soothes itchy and scaly skin. Its excellent fatty-acid profile leaves the skin smooth, supple and resilient. It provides optimal protection and hydration, making it a natural and effective anti-ageing product. Thanks to its natural sun protection factor of 3–4, jojoba oil is a popular base oil for sun creams and oils.
Industry – polish and lubricate
Jojoba oil is truly versatile. On top of its beneficial properties for human skin, it is also a popular industrial product used in furniture, car and leather polishes. Thanks to its excellent resistance to heat and oxidation and its non-adhesive qualities, it is also frequently used as a lubricant for high-quality precision instruments.
Organic jojoba oil is in very high demand at the moment and correspondingly scarce. The availability of the conventional grade remains stable, which has a positive effect on its prices.
