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 (jojoba is a liquid wax ester). 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 cause 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.

The Jojoba esters is an excellent bodywork tool (multiple treatment modalities) as well as at home for my skin. I've even used it to mix with essential oils and given it as a gift.

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

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!

I’ve used other jojoba extracts and this one is by far superior.

The results were instant! My hair not only had sheen, but totally eliminated the friz!
I threw away all of the other goopey hair gels.

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.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I have had the pleasure of working with your excellent Jojoba for 11 years as a massage therapist and also for personal use. I have occasionally tried other highly regarded massage oils and lotions over the years but always come back to your product. It is simply the best!

I love how it absorbs into the skin and leaves it silky smooth, what a fantastic carrier it is for essential oils, that it doesn't go rancid, so my sheets remain sweet-smelling and that the (jojoba) is so stable with an incredible shelf-life. What's not to love?

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.

After 35 radiation treatments I recommended your product to my friend for his burns. Like magic it is soothing and healing the area. Wonderful jojoba. Thank you.
