Jojoba is a shrub native to the Sonoran desert, in northern Mexico. It is a very resistant and long-lived plant, finding plants of more than 100 years. The Incas attributed magical properties to it, using it as food and medicine. Also known as “Desert Gold”, Jojoba oil is extracted by cold pressing its seeds.
Our Jojoba oil is grown in La Rioja, in a small town called Bañado de los Pantanos, where different climatic and soil conditions come together, which make it optimal for growing this plant. The oil production process is also carried out there, from the cold extraction of its seeds.
Jojoba oil is a natural wax, very similar in its chemical composition to the sebum that our glands secrete. Its content in ceramides, vitamin E and linoleic acid stands out. Due to the richness and particularity of its active principles, this liquid gold that we value so much, could not be missing in our preparations.
