Jojoba is a small tree like shrub native to the Sonora desert of Arizona, northern Mexco, southern and Baja California. Jojoba plants are either male or female. The female of the species bears one crop of seed (sometimes called nuts) per year from buds that develop predominantly on alternating leaf nodes of new plant growth. Jojoba is now cultivate commercially in Argentina, Australia, Chile, Egypt, India, Israel, Mexico, Peru, South Africa and the USA.
Golden Quality Jojoba has been typically expeller pressed and has not been processed further to remove any color or odor naturally present in the oil. Golden quality Jojoba oil is also used in pigmented and/or fragranced cosmetic formulations in which the natural color and odor of jojoba are not objectionable.

Properties and Cosmetic Applications
Jojoba Oil is an array of natural golden liquid wax esters found in the seed of the jojoba plant.
Jojoba oil is composed principally of 40 and 42 carbon chain lengh esters, which are in turn composed of monounsaturated fatty acids and fatty alcohols of 16 to 24 carbon chain lenght.
Jojoba oil is an unusually pure material made up of essentially all-wax esters with less than 1% triglyceride content. Since it contains Vitamin E (natural tocopherols) and has no polyunsatured components, it is highly resistant to oxidation. It also contains small amounts of phospholipids that are themselves beneficial to the hair and skin.
The principal use of jojoba oil is for its excellent cosmetic properties such as skin softening, skin penetration and emolliency.
