SUSTAINABLE SOLUTIONS FOR INNOVATIVE BEAUTY PRODUCTS
Desert Whale Jojoba Oil + Derivatives are made with environmentally friendly oil that is extracted from jojoba seeds, or with jojoba seed material that remains after oil extraction (seed meal). Jojoba oil has a very unique chemical composition -- liquid wax esters similar to those found naturally in skin’s sebum – and therefore is actually not an oil.
Among the many identified plant species in the world, jojoba is the only source of liquid wax esters. These special esters have superior properties compared to all other natural oils, which are composed of triglycerides. As a result, Desert Whale Jojoba Oil + Derivatives are highly versatile, providing a broader range of benefits and functionality than many other natural ingredients, including:
Multitasking ingredients with many anhydrous options available, Desert Whale Jojoba Oil + Derivatives are ideal solutions for creating innovative + sustainable beauty products with a favorable environmental profile. They allow for more simple or waterless formulas containing fewer ingredients to be designed, if desired. In addition, most ingredients in the Desert Whale line are certified organic by USDA/NOP, Ecocert or COSMOS.
The Desert’s Sustainable GEM
Jojoba is a shrub native to the Sonoran Desert of the US and Mexico, now cultivated in arid lands around the world including the Patagonian Desert in Argentina. It has many special characteristics which make it an inherently sustainable, renewable source of raw materials for beauty products:

Natural Alternatives to Polyethylene Beads
A wide collection of natural jojoba exfoliants -- biodegradable alternatives to Polyethylene (PE) beads -- are among the sustainable solutions offered by Vantage. The latest addition to this collection, PFJ?-S Beads, was created in response to the demand for natural exfoliants that provide similar efficacy and skin feel to that of PE beads while being cost-effective.
PE beads have been widely used in personal care products, providing gentle yet effective exfoliation. However, concerns about their damaging impact on the environment are growing. They are able to pass through the filters of a wastewater treatment plant eventually flowing into our rivers, lakes and oceans. PE beads are not biodegradable, remaining in the environment as pollutants; they are consumed by marine animals and then passed along in the food chain.
In response to the pollution problem caused by PE beads, campaigns against their use in personal care have been launched by various environmental groups. In addition, legislation has recently been passed, such as the US’s Microbead-Free Waters Act of 2015, which will ban the sale of products containing PE beads in the future.
Green to Our Very Roots…From Saving the Whales to Saving Natural Resources
For nearly 40 years Vantage has built expertise in the development, production and supply of environmentally friendly beauty ingredients through green, sustainable practices.?It began in the 1970s when the Desert Whale Jojoba Company promoted jojoba oil as an extraordinary replacement for whale oil – playing a key role in the introduction and growth of the jojoba industry, and assisting in the “Save the Whales” environmental movement. Sperm whales had been hunted extensively for many years to the brink of extinction. Their highly valued oil was widely used in beauty products thanks to its unique, multifunctional benefits which, as discovered through extensive research, match those provided by jojoba oil.
Today Vantage’s Desert Whale brand continues to build upon its proud heritage in helping save the whales:
