Jojoba Oil

Jojoba, a nut from the dry Southwest produces an oil that is technically a wax. Its long chains of fatty acids lack the glyceride molecules that would make it an oil but, it is a superior skin care lipid no matter its category. Plants often produce waxes to protect against environmental extremes and jojoba oil can protect your skin just as it does the jojoba trees in the desert.

Originally this native tree was planted as a harvestable crop to replace Sperm whale oil that had been popular for centuries. It is the star of the Save the Whales movement of the 1960's and 70's.
