My Jojoba Arrived Cloudy or Solid, Is There Something Wrong?

Jojoba will solidify or go cloudy at lower temperatures

We have been getting a few calls from worried customers about cloudy or solidified jojoba. This is perfectly normal and there is no reason for concern. As the temperature drops jojoba will become cloudy or become solid. Hardening at lower temperatures is a normal process that occurs with most waxes and fats. Typically, jojoba will start to get cloudy or solidify at around 50 degrees fahrenheit. During winter more customers will experience this natural process. If you look at the image on the left, you will notice that one of the bottles of jojoba is clear and the other is cloudy. The bottle on the left was exposed to cold temperatures. After an hour or so at room temperature it looked just like the bottle on the right.

If your jojoba arrives cloudy or solid, allow it to reliquify at room temperature. The time required for this to happen will depend on the ambient room temperature and how cold the jojoba is. Please do not attempt to reliquify jojoba in boiling water or by placing it in the microwave.

Solidification does not affect jojoba's quality, however it may effect a separation of the phospholipids, a white wispy substance that can settle to the bottom of the container. Phospholipids are good for the skin. Shake the container well to reintegrate them.

Thank you for a fabulous product and great customer care!!

There are some Maine products that serve us well through the sweltering days of August to the frigid days of January and every day in between. Jojoba is one of them!

I started out trying the jojoba on an older leather day planner that I have. It is in very good condition, so I didn't think I would see much of a difference. Boy, was I wrong! I didn't realize how dull it was until I used the jojoba on it.

I just wanted to email to say that I'm so in love with Jojoba.

I don't know what I did before I started using your product.
It is by far the finest skin care product I have ever used.
