Discovery Science Channel’s How It’s Made Visits Desert Whale to Film How It’s Made: Jojoba Oil.

As the largest grower of conventional and organic jojoba in the United States, Desert Whale was approached by the creative director of the Discovery Science Channel’s hit documentary television series How It’s Made with interest in filming How It’s Made: Jojoba Oil.

A four man crew visited Desert Whale last week to get a behind the scenes look at the transformation of the jojoba seed into jojoba oil.  The filming included a trip to Desert Whale‘s expelling plant as well as a visit to Desert Whale‘s farms to watch the harvest and seed cleaning.

Desert Whale was pleased to be chosen to represent the industry.  An air date has not been set, but stay tuned as we will share the date as soon as it becomes available.
