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!

Our farms are in the process of renewing their organic certification through Quality Assurance International.

Do you have any idea how many chemicals are going into your body?

13 May

On May 6th, the president’s cancer panel released a 200+ page report about risky chemicals in our environment.  Out of the 80,000 chemicals or so that are currently being sold in the U.S. market, only a few hundred have been proved safe.  From BPA in plastic to BHA in food  to the many cancer causing chemicals in cosmetics (Oxybenzone, Parabens, Formaldehyde), it is important that Americans start paying attention.  Consumers need to become more aware of what they are buying and manufactures need to be responsible and ensure they are offering  safe products to the market place.

The cosmetics industry was a main concern in the report.  It is estimated that a woman may host over 515 synthetic chemicals daily as a result of her beauty routine.  See the image below from dailymail.co.uk which summarizes these findings.

Research by Bionsen, a natural deodorant company, found that the average woman's daily grooming and make-up routine means she 'hosts' a staggering 515 different synthetic chemicals on her body every single day.
