Jojoba Desert's JD Lusteris Confers Extra Sensory Perception to Formulas


Sustainably sourced naturals and natural derivatives to confer soft, soothing effects in personal care formulas are in demand. In response, Jojoba Desert launches JD Lusteris (INCI: Jojoba Esters (and) Jojoba Alcohol (and) Propanediol (and) Tocopherol)—a premium emollient designed to confer unique sensory properties to formulas.

Originated from jojoba oil and manufactured through a solvent-free process, JD Lusteris is said to offer an extraordinarily light, silky sensory profile. According to the company, its precise composition of short and long jojoba chains makes it a suitable alternative to nonvolatile low viscosity silicones. Proven product applications range from sebum control and deep soothing effects, to improvements in acne-prone skin as well as hair and scalp protection.

The product is biodegradable, responsibly sourced and eco-friendly. It is also China compliant, vegan compatible and NOI 1 according to ISO 16128.

“Utilizing the exceptional properties of jojoba oil, we developed a novel ingredient that can act as a suitable and sustainable replacement for silicones while providing functionality in the formulation for multiple applications,” says Anna Aharoni, Ph.D., R&D manager at Jojoba Desert (A.C.S.) Ltd. She adds that JD Lusteris acts as not only an emollient, but also a co-emulsifier and humectant.
