Jojoba – natural, sustainable, and traceable

As the world leading supplier of sustainable solutions for the jojoba market, our partner Vantage is committed to providing highest quality and 100% traceability from farm to formulation. Running its own sustainably managed jojoba farms on the northern and southern hemispheres, Vantage guarantees very high security of supply all year round.


We are proud to present three raw materials from the broad range of high-quality jojoba ingredients from Vantage: 

  • Liponate™ Jojoba 20 – natural, multifunctional and oil-free emollient
  • Jojoba Oil – an adaptogen with unique properties
  • Jojoba Esters 70 – vegan alternatives to beeswax and candelilla wax

     

Liponate™ Jojoba 20 – natural, multifunctional and oil-free emollient

With LiponateTM Jojoba 20, Vantage presents a mixture of jojoba esters and tocopherol.

The COSMOS compliant Liponate™ Jojoba 20 is 100% traceable: the jojoba seeds are sustainably grown and harvested on Vantage farms in Argentina and the USA. An enzymatic inter-esterification process, which fulfils green chemistry criteria, produces an oil-free ingredient with unique sensorial advantages.

Worked into formulations, Liponate™ Jojoba 20 provides greater softness and improves the spread of the formulation, resulting in a pleasant melting feeling when applied. In addition, Liponate™ Jojoba 20 allows an “oil-free” claim.

Clinical studies show that the multifunctional emollient has a long-lasting moisturizing effect, and significantly increases the functions of the skin barrier compared to placebo.

Furthermore, it has been proven that Liponate™ Jojoba 20 visibly reduces reddening of sensitive skin.

Liponate™ Jojoba 20 is easy to process and compatible with most esters, oils, waxes, and thickeners, and lends formulations a pleasant texture.


Jojoba Esters 70 – vegan alternatives to beeswax and candelilla wax

Jojoba Esters 70 is a plant-derived, oil-free wax ester from the seeds of the Jojoba plant, whose properties make it an excellently suitable vegan alternative to beeswax and candelilla wax. 

The COSMOS compliant Jojoba Esters 70 is easily formulable, allows “oil-free” claims, and is compatible with most esters, oils, and waxes. 

Jojoba Esters-70 lends slippage, firmness, and flexibility to the structure of stick formulations without becoming brittle, and allows a higher load of pigments and softeners. When worked into mascara formulations, the sustainably obtained Jojoba Esters 70 produces a flexible film.

Jojoba Esters 70 is suitable for all kinds of stick applications, such as deodorant sticks, as well as for sun creams, applications in the colour cosmetics segment, or hair pomades and wax applications.
