Produced in the seed of the simmondsia chinensis plant. As a wax it is composed almost entirely (~97%) of mono-esters of long-chain fatty acids and alcohols, accompanied by only a tiny fraction of triglyceride esters. This composition accounts for its extreme shelf-life stability and extraordinary resistance to high temperatures. Replaced whale oil in the 70's in several industries and can be used a biodiesel. Jojoba oil is extracted from seeds of the desert shrub, Simmondsia chinensis, native to California, Arizona and Mexico. Emollient and conditioning. Jojoba closely mimics sebum, the natural oil that our skin produces- good for face, body, hair and beard. It is emollient, antifungal and anti-inflammatory.
