Description: Organic Jojoba Clear is a favorite carrier oil. It is a clear, colorless to slightly yellow liquid. In actuality, it is a liquid wax. It is known to closely resembles the sebum of the skin, and is rich in vitamin E. This gives a healthy looking complexion to your skin. The Clear variety of Jojoba has been put through a charcoal filter to lighten the color of the oil. It is also important to note that Jojoba may go cloudy in cool temperatures. It will return to its clear state with warming. Purchases of entire drums can also expect some clouding near the end of the drum. This is natural as Phospholipids (natural components of most vegetable oils) hydrate and precipitate out of suspension. The sediment is actually extremely high in beneficial Vitamin E and will only create problems if the oil is heated to extreme temperatures where they will darken and precipitate out of suspension. Any sediment can be decanted out wherever practical.
