Desert Whale Jojoba Turns 30

Desert Whale Jojoba Company is celebrating its 30th anniversary. The company was founded in 1978 at a time when sperm whales were being decimated, and a native desert plant was being rediscovered. As the versatile properties of the jojoba plant were revealed, a new vision was born—renewable raw materials for the personal care industry.

The founders spent their first years gathering wild jojoba seed by hand. When the opportunity arose, the company purchased land, became a certified organic producer and rapidly emerged as a leader in the R&D of jojoba applications.  The company continues to meet the demands of health-conscious consumers while advancing the highest standards of responsible, renewable agriculture. Now entering its fourth decade, Desert Whale remains committed to expanding the uses of the versatile, native jojoba plant. For more information, visit
