Desert Whale Jojoba Company Celebrates 30 Year Anniversary

February 7, 2008

Desert Whale Jojoba Company of Tucson, AZ recently celebrated 30 years in the personal care industry.

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 personal care.

The founders of Desert Whale Jojoba spent their first years gathering wild jojoba seed by hand. According to the company, when the opportunity arose, it purchased land, became a certified organic producer, and rapidly emerged as a leader in the research and development of jojoba applications.

Now entering its fourth decade, Desert Whale remains committed to expanding the uses of the versatile, native jojoba plant. According to president Soraya Rohde, “We will continue to do our part in making the world a more beautiful place.”
