Proud to be Finalist: Clean & Conscious Awards
From Vicki Engsall
The moment I discovered the incredible powers of Jojoba, I instantly wanted to share it with you. I remember seeing my skin change and think ‘everybody needs Jojoba!’. So, our story began and as we began formulating an entire skincare line of clinically proven products, I stuck true to my core beliefs which in turn became The Jojoba Company’s ethos too. Cruelty free, vegan friendly, sustainable and ethical. When I received an email from The Clean and Conscious Awards saying that we were a 2021 finalist, I felt like this what I had set out to achieve in this journey was being fulfilled. Thank you for sticking by our clean & green beauty.
Skincare for the now & the future, the breakdown.
With our Zero-Waste duo (Australian Jojoba + Jojoba Bean Natural Exfoliant) taking centre stage for this award, I am incredibly proud of what we have achieved. Clean, sustainable, and effective skincare is possible. Crafting our signature Australian Wadi-Wadi Jojoba for decades, our farm uses strict standards to ensure our beans are free from harmful chemicals. Once matured the beans are gently scooped up from the ground then washed, extra-virgin cold pressed and filtered 14 times for absolute purity at a neighbouring Aussie facility. This ensures that every drop of Wadi-Wadi Jojoba you get is of the highest quality.
After this process, what remains is the shell of our Wadi-Wadi Jojoba bean. Still bursting with nutrients, we knew this casing had a purpose. For years, and with Farmer Dan's help, I had been secretly using the bean shell as an exfoliant for my face and body. Over the years we tested different milling techniques helping me to not only get the best scrub possible but leaving behind…well nothing! With 50% of the bean pressed into our liquid gold the remaining 50% was my DIY scrub.
Finally, I perfected the density of the exfoliant and found that once mixed with the pure Jojoba, my skin was left soft, smooth and glowing! So, this became almost like a Beresford Farm x Vicki secret.
People would ask me how I keep my skin so amazing and I would reply ‘I only use our Jojoba products. What I didn’t realise is…everyone needs this too!
Eventually I mentioned an unknowingly kept secret and everyone wanted a piece. Remaining true to our values, we decided to source a 100% compostable pouch to zip our finely milled beans in. Meaning, that once you use every grain of Jojoba Bean Natural Exfoliant up you can pop this in your compost leaving behind…nothing. Paired with our Australian Wadi-Wadi Jojoba, this duo is our first zero-waste pair. Incredible for our skin and the planet.
