Description: Jojoba Golden is one of the most popular carrier oils in the market. Our Jojoba golden carrier oil is GMO free. In actuality, it is a liquid wax. It closely resembles the sebum of the skin, and is rich in vitamin E. This promotes a glowing complexion. The Golden variety of Jojoba may alter color and odors in cosmetics. It is also important to note that Jojoba may go cloudy in cool temperatures. It will return to its clear state with warming. Purchases of entire drums can also expect some clouding near the end of the drum. This is natural as Phospholipids (natural components of most vegetable oils) hydrate and precipitate out of suspension. The sediment is actually extremely high in beneficial vitamin E and will only create problems if the oil is heated to extreme temperatures where they will darken and precipitate out of suspension. Any sediment can be decanted out wherever practical.
Color: Golden to brownish yellow liquid wax.
Aromatic Description: Jojoba Golden Carrier Oil has a pleasant, soft odor.
Common Uses: Jojoba Golden Carrier Oil can be added to other carrier oils in order to extend shelf lives, and has become a common oil in the aromatherapy industries because of its excellent skin-care properties. The golden variety of Jojoba is less desired in cosmetic manufacturing; nonetheless, in applications that aren't sensitive to discoloration or odor, Golden Jojoba is still commonly used. Massage therapists may use small amounts in their carrier oil blends.
Consistency: Typical and Characteristic of Carrier Oils.
Absorption: Jojoba Golden creates a barrier but will leave a satiny finish.
Shelf Life: Users can expect a shelf life of up to 2 years with proper storage conditions (cool, out of direct sunlight). Refrigeration after opening is recommended. It may go cloudy in cool conditions but will return to its natural state once warmed. Please refer to the Certificate of Analysis for current Best Before Date.
Cautions: None Known.
Storage: It is recommended that cold-pressed carrier oils be kept in a cool dark place to maintain freshness and achieve maximum shelf life. If refrigerated, bring to room temperature before using.

Rating: I have shopped with NDA since I began making my own products in 2012, and NDA has been fantastic with their quality products and prices!
This oil is no exception. I purchased this oil about a year ago and have been reluctant to write a review for it, but here it is:
This Jojoba oil, is a great price for the product (I order the 33.3oz). This oil leaves my body and hair soft and moisturize. Golden Jojoba oil is the one for me. A little goes a long way in mixtures for the body and hair.
Keep Up The Good Work, NDA!

Rating: Some other good & interesting facts I found on an external website about pure Jojoba Oil. I will Share them here for some extra info. Enjoy!!
It is theorized that applying jojoba to the skin can "trick" the skin into thinking it is producing enough oil, thus balancing oil production. Jojoba Oil is miraculous by two reasons: first of all, it gets perfectly absorbed by skin and leaves no traces or an oily feel. Besides, it does not cause allergic reactions even on the most sensitive skin and can be used even for baby skin.

Rating: My skin loves Jojoba! I use it in an after bath oil blend and my skin is always moisturized without being greasy.
By:Adriana, New Orleans, Louisiana Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 19-May-2011
Rating: One of my favourite carrier oils, I'm impressed with the quality from NDA. I use it for everything. Until I order my borage and tamanu oils this is a hydrating skin-saver during my oil cleanse that leaves my face feeling baby soft and there is no need for moisturizing afterwards.

Rating: Wow did the price of this oil go up? Its $48 now?.... wow... is this a misprint?
New Directions Aromatics Response:
Most of the Jojoba sold in North America is from Argentina. Last year's crop in Argentina was drastically reduced due to unusually heavy rains and storms; resulting in the worst harvest in their history. This resulted in massive shortages all over North America.
Producers in Argentina have harvested their crop early this year to ease the shortage in market but the product will not reach us before May. The early harvest in itself also pushes up costs since the seeds are not fully mature by then which results in a lower yield. So prices this year are expected to be much higher as a result.
Customers should expect the price and availability to remain very volatile in the foreseeable future.
Rating: I Love Jojoba Oil, Makes me kinda sad that you are out of stock. Not only do I love the product but I LOVE the price. Can't wait till you have back in stock
By:Stephenie, Whitehorse, Yukon Territory Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Can't wait till this oil is back in stock! It's the best jojoba oil I've tried. I use it in my facial soaps, lip balms and in massage oils. A pur delight!
By:Ariane, Havre-Aubert, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: This is my all time favorite carrier oil, and I have tried several. I love the way it soaks so quickly into the skin and leaves it so soft and non-greasy. I love to mix it with other carrier oils to make them all soak in better and leave a drier, cleaner feel.
By:Lauretta, San Diego, California Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 19-Jun-2010
Rating: Jojoba Golden is one of my favorites carrier oils. Exemplary as a moisturizer as it penetrates skin very rapidly. Jojoba is a excellent source for nourishing all skin types and will soften skin without leaving an oily "after feel". I use Jojoba in all my skin conditioning formulas. Excellent choice for all skin head to toe. I recommend dilutions (8-10%). An essential oil for those with mature, dry, sensitive skin and those suffering from chronic skin disorders. This is the one oil you should never be without.
By:James, Seattle, Washington Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 22-Jun-2009
Rating: This is my go to, absolutely must have at all times, never want to be out oil. I use it for everything from conditioning my hair to mixing essential oils. Almost every product I produce for my line has this Jojoba oil in it. The golden color is wonderful, and the very very light aroma gives it an earthy quality. I have not found this level of quality at such a decent price anywhere but here. Great job ND!
By:Michael, Chicago, Illinois Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 05-Dec-2010
Rating: This is a very nice oil. High quality! I love using this in my higher end lotions and creams.
By:Heather, Colorado Springs, Colorado Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 26-Aug-2009
Rating: I love this oil. I tried this as a moisturizer for my face and my skin is loving it. It in no way makes my face oily, in fact it works better than any store bought moisturizer I have ever used. My make up just goes on perfectly and looks so smooth. I also use this with salt as a scrub and it leaves skin amazingly smooth. I couldn't keep my hands off of my skin.

Rating: This oil is outstanding, I added to my Almond oil (which I use everyday as a body moisturizer)because I was running low, and now I'm totally hooked on the Jojoba Golden as well as the Almond oil. So I can't live without either of them, and I'm looking forward to trying other carrier oils, I wonder if each one is going leave me addicted !?!

Rating: My family and I just absolutley LOVE this Jojoba Golden oil. I mix it in my lotions and use it in my facial creams and our skin has never been softer. This is amazing stuff. My mom has had dry skin for what seems to be eternity and nothing has helped with her flakes until I made her some lotion and mixed it with this Jojoba. My skin is no longer dry and flakey either. I can now where shorts and skirts and not be embarrased with dry flakey skin. Thank You ND for all your quality you provide in your products. I am for sure to be a long time customer.
