What do you know about Jojoba Oil?
Jojoba Golden Oil is one of the ingredients used by Frank Wrap to make the food wrap. This blog article is entirely dedicated to jojoba oil and to our very special Fair For Life certified supplier. You might have seen other brands of food wrap using coconut oil. At Frank Wrap we opted to use only Jojoba Golden Oil in its formulation and we have plenty of good reasons to justify our choice. The price is definitely not one of them.
Jojoba Golden Oil is a pure natural golden liquid wax, composed of esters extracted from jojoba (Simmondsia Chinensis) seeds. A rich clear golden liquid with extraordinarily beneficial properties.
Jojoba Oil is rich in Omega-9 and free of additives and preservatives, making our products healthier, more environmentally-friendly and an efficient alternative to chemical ingredients. Jojoba Oil is produced from organic certified seeds grown in organic certified farms and are naturally hypoallergenic.
