Botanic Name: Simmondsia chinensis
Product Name: Jojoba Golden Carrier Oil (ORGANIC)
Country of Origin: USA
Organic Jojoba Golden is a favorite carrier oil. In actuality, it is a liquid wax. It closely resembles the sebum of the skin, and is rich in vitamin E. This promotes a glowing complexion. The golden variety of Jojoba may alter odors and colors in cosmetics. Purchases of entire drums can also expect some clouding near the end of the drum. This is natural as Phospholipids (natural components of most vegetable oils) hydrate and precipitate out of suspension. The sediment is actually extremely high in beneficial vitamin E and will only create problems if the oil is heated to extreme temperatures where they will darken and precipitate out of suspension. Any sediment can be decanted out wherever practical. It is also important to note that Jojoba may go cloudy in cool temperatures. It will return to its clear state with warming.
