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.

Have you noticed your jojoba becoming cloudy or solid at low temperatures?

I bought your product... and my husband thought it was just another product I had to have - now he uses it all the time and reminded me when we're running low. So we both think it's great. Thanks.

Thank you so much for your prompt service.

After more than 20 years of practice I have used numerous products. The Jojoba Oil is superior to any and all.

We have been using Hobacare for nearly two years now and have found our family's skin is amazing looking - which is truly a feat considering the eczema and dry skin that so plagues us!

Every one of your claims are true - the lack of staining and smell, the affinity with the skin, and my clients love that they don't get up from the table feeling like greased pigs (my words). Of course, as a massage therapist, none of that would matter if the grip and glide weren't perfect... and they are.

I've been a masseuse for eleven years and your jojoba extract is the best stuff I've ever used! It's economical, clean, and every one of my clients like it.

I love this product. My esthetician had been using it on my skin for years. Trusting her knowledge of skincare and product-lines for the last 20+years, I decided to wean myself from traditional body moisturizers in 2018, and transition to jojoba oil for my basic skin care moisturization.

Your product is amazing and I couldn't be happier with it. It is high quality which is what I strive for in my own practice.

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.
