How It’s Made: Jojoba Oil

9 Nov

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

A DWJ harvester prepares to vacuum up jojoba seed.

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.

Let the harvest begin!

20 Sep

Desert Whale’s farms have begun the yearly harvest! The beginning of harvest is a good time to remind that we are not only a supplier but a producer as well.  For over 33 years, Desert Whale has consistently supplied the highest quality jojoba and organic jojoba to the personal care and cosmetic industries.  Our mill and Tucson warehouses just received their organic certification renewal through Quality Assurance International. We are happy to report that we are entering our 10th year of organic certification!


What else is new? Desert Whale is amidst a total revamping of our product literature, we’re excited to launch the new look at the upcoming CASCC Supplier’s Day in Long Beach at the end of October and at IFSCC & In-Cosmetics in Thailand the beginning of November! The revamping of our literature includes a move from print brochures to electronic brochures in an effort to reduce our paper usage- another step in our efforts to continuously become more environmentally friendly!
