This refined and unique product is actually a liquid wax. Renowned for its absorption and moisturizing abilities, our jojoba oil is expeller pressed from the Jojoba Seed. Because of its fatty acid make up, jojoba oil is very resistant to oxidation (and rancidity) and has a very long shelf life. It takes 1200 Jojoba nuts to add up to a pound. This pound of nuts only has a 50% yield of oil, which is one of the reasons it is more expensive than other oils.
