Ingredient: Organic Certified (Golden Jojoba) Simmondsia chinensis Oil.
Jojoba oil is actually a mixture
of long chain monounsaturated liquid wax esters. They are structurally
different from triglycerides, which are what most of the other seed oils
are made of. Technically speaking, it isn’t really an oil after all.
Jojoba oil is extracted from seeds of the jojoba plant, scientifically known as Simmondsia chinensis, which
are indigenous to southern United States and northern Mexico. Pure
jojoba oil has a bright, golden color whereas processed jojoba oil is
clear and transparent. It has a high shelf life and can be stored for
long periods as it is a relatively stable liquid. It does not oxidize
easily and will not turn rancid compared to other oils because it does not contain triglycerides, unlike most other vegetable oils such as grape seed oil and coconut oil.
Jojoba oil is rarely sold in its pure form . The total area planted with jojoba plants in the United States is about 45,000 acres and it takes three years for the seed to grow into a plant. Ninety-five percent of them end up in personal care or health products, blended with other ingredients. The main bulk of jojoba oil is farmed in Israel and Argentina and exported.
In the 1960s, the sperm whale was becoming an endangered species because they were being hunted for their oil, which is comprised of ninety percent wax esters. Back then, they were widely used in thousands of health and cosmetic products. When importing whale oils into the United States was outlawed in 1971, jojoba oil was discovered. It was found that jojoba oil is far superior to whale oils, also known as squalene, in many ways and is more beneficial to human health. Today, it is prominent in a wide variety of products.
So why jojoba oil?
What makes it so unique compared to other seed oils is that jojoba oil is structurally and chemically very similar to the human sebum produced by the sebaceous glands in our skin because sebum is also largely comprised of wax mono esters. In most cases, it can act as a substitute while giving similar or added benefits compared to sebum. Jojoba oil is non-toxic, non-comedogenic and non-allergenic. This means that it will not clog pores and will not cause any allergic reactions. It is also not an irritant, so it can safely be used around the eyes and on the skin. In addition to that, it does not cause a greasy feeling when used on the skin like other oils do.
