Jojoba (pronounced ho-ho-ba) oil has long been prized for its amazing moisturising qualities. Its molecular structure is very similar sebum produced by our skin, which means it absorbs easily and nourishes deeply. You’ll find it in loads of skin care and hair care products, and it’s one of PureNature’s most popular oils.
Recently, our director headed over to Argentina for a first-hand glimpse of how our Jojoba oil is harvested, filtered and pressed. There, in La Rioja province, he got to see how our supplier Eco Oils works to create sustainable resources as well as providing employment for seasonal workers in a very poor part of Argentina.
The Harvest: Workers gather the jojoba seeds from beneath the jojoba trees by hand.
Sow Seeds: After the debris is sifted out, the Jojoba seeds are ready for for the factory.
Crates Away: These crates hold some 500kg of seeds each. The oil yield of Jojoba is about 50% – quite high. That means about 250kg of oil per bin!
