Boosting stability for safe, reliable beauty
The global Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic has caused dramatic changes in customer’s behaviour, priorities and brand engagement. Now more than ever, customers seek effective, preventative, safe and reliable beauty and brands need to answer to this raising demand along with the challenge of creating long-lasting, shelf-stable products that can withstand transit across the miles and continue to remain efficacious. Jojoba Desert are offering their JD Jojoba Oil to provide solutions for various cosmetic and skin care products.
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.
Due to its unique chemical structure and antioxidants content, Jojoba oil has incomparable oxidative stability, resulting in a long shelf life and resistance towards free radicals. This exclusive property of Jojoba as a carrier oil can be capitalised upon by brands and result in helping the stabilisation 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 to oxidative degradation.
Not only is JD Jojoba Oil one of the most stable natural oils on the market, but adding JD Jojoba Oil to other carrier oils can improve their stability to much higher levels. In the case of Avocado oil, it was improved by 400%.
As Hemp oil and CBD are the hottest trend and their use is rising constantly, it was required 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.
“These studies show that JD Jojoba Oil can be used as an excellent medium for unstable compounds,” explains Dr. Anna Aharoni, R&D manager at 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.”
“JD Jojoba Oil’s stability is unsurpassed by any other similar ingredient and along with its unique benefits, it is the perfect choice for effective, preventative, safe and reliable beauty and skin care in our global economy,” said Lee Reuveni, CEO of Jojoba Desert. “It’s exciting to see the impact JD Jojoba Oil is already making in the beauty industry, and we believe it will continue to revolutionize skin care in the years to come.”
