Our Priorities

Since our founding in 1994, our goal has been to provide the highest quality jojoba in the most sustainable way possible. Our jojoba is our pure, first-press, unrefined, golden jojoba. We continually strive to provide the best quality jojoba on the market with the least environmental impact. Over the years we have continued to improve our practices.

non-toxic jojoba

Our most important job is produce the highest quality jojoba we can, our jojoba is First Press quality. The pressing is a light pressing, thus resulting in less quantity, but a higher quality product. This is the main reason you can see, feel, and smell the difference between our jojoba and others. A light pressing yields only about 38% jojoba from the seed, where some forms of pressing will yield up to around 50%. Some producers also use solvents to extract more jojoba from the seed. This results in more jojoba, but a much lower quality jojoba. The result is a beautifully golden product that retains its natural beneficial properties and benefits for the skin. Some processors deodorize their jojoba to remove smell and strip it of its natural color. We never do this, which you can see from the naturally golden color of our product. Our jojoba is pure. The only thing we do is filter the jojoba through a one micron filter. This removes any residual solids from the pressing process. (for more information about what makes our jojoba different from the other products on the market, read this blog post )

Solar Powered jojoba

Our facility is classified as a net-zero facility. We have an 18Kw solar array installed on our roof, it provides all the electricity for our facility here in Maine. We take great pride knowing that we are using the sun's power to fill bottles, heat our building, and power our computers.

When choosing packaging and suppliers, we're always looking for the best when it comes to recycling. Our packaging is 100% recyclable. We encourage our customers to reuse the boxes for shipping, storing, or even as mulch in the garden. Our packing peanuts are sourced from a company that makes them from cornstarch, they can be composted (though we encourage you to reuse them whenever possible). Very little waste is produced at our facility, we take great pride in reducing, reusing, and recycling!

If you have questions about our practices, feel free to give us a call.

I've ordered jojoba before and your jojoba is leaps and bounds above any other. I could immediately feel the difference in the way it looks, smells & feels on my skin. The first thought in my head was that this is truly an elegant product. I'm glad I purchased it.

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.

I like doing business with companies that care, and I feel that you do.

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

The very best thing about jojoba is that is does not become rancid and aids in the integrity of essential oils.

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.

I want you to know I appreciate your wonderful customer service. There is never a delay in the shipment of my order and I very much appreciate it.

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.

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!
