Botanical Name: Simmondsia chinensis
Description & Extraction:
In reality jojoba oil is not an oil but a liquid wax, and is pronounced "ho-ho-ba"
and became important in the 1970s when whaling was banned, since it has
almost the same properties as the oil obtained from the sperm whale. If a
good nourishing ingredient is needed for hair care, jojoba oil is also
sometimes added to commercial hair care products, but due to the cost of
jojoba oil, the quantities so included are low. Jojoba oil is obtained by
cold pressing of seeds.
Blends well with:
Jojoba Oil blend well with Palmarosa, Sandalwood, Rose, Patchouli and most
of the Essential oils.
Erucic- 16.3% Gadoleic- 69.3% Oleic- 10.1%
It is easy to understand why jojoba oil is an all-time favorite to use as a
carrier oil, as well as added to skincare preparations, since it penetrates
the skin easily and is suitable for all skin types. It is Golden to brownish
yellow liquid wax with characteristic neutral odor
Uses & Precautions:
- Jojoba Oil used as a massage medium, it acts as an emulsifier with
the skin's natural sebum and gently unclogs the pores and lifts grime
and imbedded impurities.
- It contains myristic acid which also has anti-inflammatory actions
and since it has a similar in composition to that of the skin's own
oils, it is quickly absorbed and is excellent for dry and mature skins
as well as inflamed conditions
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. 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.
