Jojoba oil is pronounced “ho-ho-ba”. It’s a natural liquid wax, derived by cold pressing jojoba beans, of the Simmondsia chinensis plant. This plant is native to southern regions of Arizona, California and northwestern Mexico. The liquid is about half of the weight of the bean.
An unrefined oil is clear to golden in color with a slight nutty flavor. A refined oil is colorless and odorless. During the refining process, its natural nutrients can be significantly reduce or eliminated.
This natural oil is more shelf stable safflower, canola and almond oils since it contains no triglycerides. It has an advanced molecular stability. It does not oxidize, lose antioxidants or become rancid after long storage time. It’s a popular carrier oil or additive in cosmetic, skin, hair and body products: lotions, creams, soaps, lip balms, perfumes, shaving preparations, massage oils, shampoos and conditioners. Jojoba oil is expensive, so it’s mostly used for leave on products: lotions, creams or lip balms. It can be used alone and applied directly to skin, hair or scalp.
