Jojoba | AgriFutures Australia Skip to main content


Jojoba, is a small, hardy shrub. Jojoba is the only plant to store wax, not oil, in its seeds, and it is the wax from the plant that is used by humans for many purposes. The liquid wax is usually referred to as jojoba oil. Most Australian growers market the product as ‘golden jojoba’, not oil, to differentiate it from the product of oil seed crops, such as sweet almond oil.
