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'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.

Genie Robinson, RMT

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.

Sara Garvin, LMT

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.

Julie Paus

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...

Laurie

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

Jacob

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.

Jonna Climie

I just want to let you know how much I love your Jojoba. I have been using it for about 10 years now, after seeing it at a massage convention. One year I decided to go cheaper and found my sheets smelling rancid and after throwing them out decided I'd never do that again.

Katie Dickinson

I have been using your product for years and I love it! It is the only product I use for the face and body!

Debra Peters

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

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

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.
