Simmondsia Chinensis Oil

The jojoba plant, Simmondsia Chinensis Schneider, is a monotypic species of the family Simmondsiaceae in the order Caryophyllales (Crawley and Hilu, 2012). Unlike vegetable oils and animal fats, jojoba (Simmondsia chinensis) oil is not a triglyceride but a mixture of long chain esters (97–98%) of fatty acids and fatty alcohols, and therefore is more properly referred to as a wax; however, jojoba oil-wax is the term in general use.
