The International
Jojoba Export Council

The word jojoba (pronounced ho-ho-ba) is used to describe both the plant and the extract.

Jojoba oil is different than other plant seed oils known as triglyceride oils. Specifically, Jojoba oil is a true wax. It is the only known botanical wax which is liquid at room temperature.

The jojoba plant is a desert shrub grown in desert climates. It produces seeds that are crushed to extract a pure liquid that is very similar to the natural oils your body creates to coat your skin and keep it moist and soft. This natural oil is wonderful for all skin types. It is natural, odorless, non-greasy, hypo-allergenic, extremely stable and easily absorbed.

These properties make jojoba a natural choice for the manufacturing of skin and hair care products. The International Jojoba Export Council promotes the use of jojoba and consists of member growers, processors and marketers around the world.
