What is Jojoba?
Jojoba oil, derived from the beans of a shrub-like plant known as Simmondsia chinensis, predominantly found in Mexico and the Southern regions of the United States, is a unique liquid plant wax often referred to as an oil due to its common usage.
Jojoba Actions and Benefits
Jojoba oil boasts exceptional cleansing properties and serves as an outstanding moisturizer, making it a valuable addition for rejuvenating and replenishing dry skin. Its fatty acids work to revitalize and hydrate your dog's dry skin, while its anti-inflammatory properties aid in reducing swelling and redness associated with various skin conditions. Furthermore, Jojoba oil exhibits natural antibacterial characteristics.
How does Jojoba work?
Jojoba oil is highly stable, serving as an excellent scalp cleanser and moisturizer. Because it is a wax, it imparts a non-greasy feel to your dog's skin and coat.
Additionally, it is rich in essential fatty acids and nutrients, such as Vitamin E, which contributes to effective skin moisturizing and toning, making it great for dogs with skin allergies.
How do we use Jojoba?
The application of Jojoba oil leaves the skin feeling soft, firm, and supple. It creates a robust barrier against moisture loss, allergens, and environmental pollutants. The presence of linoleic acid and antioxidants in Jojoba oil aids in skin cell regeneration. We incorporate Jojoba oil into the organic oil base of our Castile dog shampoo for optimal benefits.
Is Jojoba safe for dogs?
Absolutely. Jojoba oil is safe, non-toxic, and non-irritating when used on dogs and cats.
About Our Jojoba Oil:
We utilize the highest-grade, organic Jojoba oil, cultivated without the use of pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, sewage sludge, genetically modified organisms, or ionizing radiation. Given that Jojoba is a wax, its shelf life and stability exceed that of most oils, and the risk of rancidity is exceptionally low.
Your product got cloudy when it got cold?
In colder temperatures, it's entirely normal for Jojoba oil to become cloudy and solidify due to the hardening of fats and waxes. However, once it returns to room temperature, it will regain its stable appearance.
Sodium jojobate and Potassium jojobate are the saponified names of Jojoba oil components, indicating their use in soapmaking.
