Golden Jojoba Oil: One of Nature's Perfect Carrier Oils

Article Summary: Organic first-press, golden jojoba oil is in each and every Good & Simple Face & Body Balm. We think this oil is THAT good. With a robust list of attributes and benefits for your skin, this powerhouse oil is one to include in your daily skincare routine. Combine jojoba oil with other key ingredients such as grass-fed tallow, emu oil and essential oils, and you have a powerful blend of natural ingredients that hydrate, soothe, and enhance our body's natural state-of-being and our skin's texture.



Jojoba oil (pronounced ho-HO-ba) is a soft liquid wax (not technically an "oil") pressed from the seed of the jojoba plant.  

Jojoba oil is a lightweight, non-greasy, and fast-absorbing oil. Jojoba oil mimics our skin's sebum and may be used safely around the eyes.

Jojoba oil is an excellent all-over moisturizer. The oil may be used head to toe for all skin types and all ages. It is also an excellent carrier oil that can be used alone or in combination with other oils and butters for an enhanced effect.

Jojoba oil is non-comedogenic (will not clog pores), non-allergenic, non-toxic, and highly shelf stable with an iodine level at 82% - supporting jojoba oils powerhouse property to heal skin and support cell regeneration.

Quick history note: When whale oil was banned (1971), jojoba oil stepped in and was found to be a superior replacement.

Jojoba is native to the Sonoran Desert of southern AZ/CA and NW Mexico. However, it is now cultivated across the world in places with desert-like climates.



Organic first-press, light-press, golden jojoba oil is the highest quality and purest form of jojoba oil available. While jojoba oil of this premium quality yields less oil from the jojoba seed than when a more conventional pressing method is used, the first-press oil is of higher quality with a pleasant, natural scent and has a higher concentration than oil pressed multiple times from the same seed.
