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 authorizes as certifiers.

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

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 did a lot of research on what to use on my skin and then where to get it. I know I made the right choice.

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.

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 ordered one gallon of jojoba online yesterday afternoon and I received it this morning at 9:30!!!!!
Thank you so much for your prompt service.

Sarah Litchfield, LMT

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!

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!

My clients love Jojoba; it washes out of sheets and clothing easily, and it makes my work easier. The absence of fragrance is especially nice. I highly recommend it!

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.
