Organic vs. Pesticide Free

Jojoba Product images - Organic vs. Pesticide FreeThe Jojoba Company provides first-press, unrefined, golden, pesticide-free, HobaCare Jojoba and Jojoba Baby and first-press, unrefined, golden, certified 100% organic HobaCare Jojoba and Jojoba Baby. Both products are first-press quality and both have been processed in accordance with organic standards. One cannot tell the difference between the two after applying them to the skin. (Some customers swear they can discern a difference. We do not argue with them!)

We cannot certify the pesticide-free HobaCare Jojoba and Jojoba Baby as organic for one of two reasons:

  1. The seeds harvested for the jojoba are from fields that are in transition from pesticide-free to organic, or
  2. The seeds are from fields that were farmed conventionally, and the growers used commercial fertilizers -- NOT certified organic fertilizers -- on the plants that produce the jojoba seeds pressed for our pesticide-free jojoba. The use of conventional fertilizers makes organic certification impossible.

Our Certified 100% Organic HobaCare Jojoba and Jojoba Baby have been grown and processed in accordance with the United States Department of Agriculture's National Organic Program (USDA NOP). Our certifier is the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association (MOFGA), whom the USDA NOP authorize as certifiers.

I also feel good that by using your product I'm doing everything I can to protect the new mother and delicate new life in my care - no chemicals, preservatives, or pesticides here, thank you very much.

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.

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.

Jayne Johnson

Thank you! I just wanted to say that I am just getting into making my own cosmetics and had been searching high and low for the most responsibly produced jojoba. This is very good quality at a fair price...

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!

Jann Minzy

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

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.

Robyne Lopez

I love your stuff. I've been using it for years and refuse to use anything else. I've tried them all. Your jojoba, is by far, the best available.

Bella Donna

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?

Annie/Arianna Mitchell, LMP

Thank you so much for providing a wonderful product. I have been using your golden jojoba in my skincare products for many years and all my customers (and me) love it.
