Jojoba Oil is produced from the seed of the Simmondsia chinensis (Jojoba) plant, a shrub, which is native to southern Arizona, southern California, and northwestern Mexico. The weight of the oil is approximately 50% of the jojoba seed. Jojoba Oil has a longer shelf life as compared to others and it has higher boiling points as compared with other vegetable oils.
Appearance & Properties of Jojoba Oil:
The Earth Element Jojoba Oil appears as a clear golden liquid at room temperature with a slightly nutty odor. The melting point of jojoba oil is approximately 10 °C. The fatty acid content of Jojoba oil can vary significantly depending on the soil and climate in which the plant is grown, as well as when it is harvested and how the oil is processed. In general it contains a high proportion of mono-unsaturated fatty acids, primarily 11-Eicosenoic acid (Gondoic acid).
Application of Jojoba Oil:
Jojoba Oil is commonly used to treat acne, psoriasis, sunburn and chapped skin. It’s also used by people who are balding because it encourages hair regrowth. Because jojoba is an emollient, it soothes the skin and unclogs hair follicles. Many people know Jojoba Oil to be a carrier oil for essential oil uses, such as making skin and hair products, but it’s actually an effective skin moisturizer and healer on its own.
