Jojoba oil has long been known for its exceptional stability levels. Now, it has been proven that JD Jojoba Oil not only features high levels of oxidative stability but, by adding JD Jojoba Oil to other oils, it can increase their stability levels as well.
"These studies show that JD Jojoba Oil can be used as an excellent medium for unstable compounds,” said Dr. Anna Aharoni, R&D manager, Jojoba Desert. “By the addition of JD Jojoba Oil, the stability of a whole formulation could be improved in the case of oil-based formulations, and less preservatives could be needed in the case of aqua-based formulations. Moreover, including JD Jojoba Oil could extend the shelf life of unstable materials and will streamline product formulation – instead of two starting materials, you can just add one.”
Due to its unique chemical structure and antioxidants content, jojoba oil has incomparable oxidative stability, resulting in a long shelf life and resistance toward free radicals. This exclusive property of jojoba as a carrier oil can be capitalized upon by brands and result in helping the stabilization of formulations with oxidatively-sensitive vitamins, essential oils and other natural active materials.
It is well known that jojoba oil is one of the most stable natural oils on the market and jojoba’s stability could prove critical in bringing formulations with long shelf-life to the market. Recently, the oxidative stability of different vegetable oils has been tested by the commonly used Rancimat method. In this experiment, jojoba oil showed the highest oxidation stability among tested oils. Its exceptional stability is attributed to the unique chemical structure—straight chain esters in comparison to other vegetable oil that have a branched triglyceride structure that tends toward oxidative degradation.
Not only is JD Jojoba Oil is one of the most stable natural oils on the market, but adding itl to other carrier oils can improve their stability to much higher levels (see charts in slider). In the case of avocado oil, it was improved by 400%.
As hemp oil and CBD are the hottest ingredients in personal care, and their use is constantly increasing, it made sense to examine how JD Jojoba Oil effects the stability of hemp oil. The results of these tests aligned with the previous ones as they have indicated that as predicted – adding JD Jojoba Oil in 20:80 ratio significantly improved the stability of hemp oil and resulted in a lower peroxide value.
