In the early 1970s, a chemist named Jim Brown was working for a personal care ingredient manufacturing company. In the course of his research, he became aware of the Jojoba plant and discovered its many benefits. Hydrolyzed Jojoba Esters are derived from jojoba oil and frequently used in many cosmetics formulations. This essential form of Jojoba is comprised of an array of long chain fatty alcohols and potassium salts with chain lengths of C-16 to C26 and has been found to be an exceptionally effective natural ingredient of a cold sore treatment product.
After realizing the great advantages of Jojoba oils, Jim decided to approach the skin care industry and share what he’d learned. He and his wife would spend their evenings putting together little containers of jojoba product samples and send them to skin care manufacturers. It wasn’t too long before people began to realize how amazing the jojoba oils and esters were for skin and hair. Jim went on to not only provide jojoba products to some of the top brand names in the skincare industry including L’Oreal and Chanel but he is also credited with introducing Macadamia Nut oil, Sunflower Seed oil and many more natural ingredients to the world of skincare.
In addition to creating products with these wonderful raw materials for leading brand names, Jim spent his spare time creating patented plant-based formulas and ingredients for lotions, lip balms, shampoos and more – the K-100 formula being one of his creations with the most powerful impact. Jim shared hundreds of product samples with family, friends, and anyone who was interested in trying a natural remedy versus the chemicals being pushed by pharmaceutical giants.
Not too long after sending out a batch of samples, a friend who suffered from severe cold sores replied saying the Jojoba sample zapped her cold sore making it disappear faster than anything else she’d ever tried! Not only did it work, but it worked quickly. Jim knew he was on to something and sent it to many more friends and family…it was working. Every. Single. Time. Armed with the formulation, Jim has set out to prove his formula can stand up to any competitor in the market and pass with flying colors.
Why 100% Natural Products Are Better
Jojoba is a native shrub found growing wild among the hillsides of the Sonora Desert of Arizona, Southern California and Mexico. Scientists in the JojobaDerm Laboratories have isolated a fraction found in the seed of the jojoba plant and have determined that this fraction is more effective in treating the HSV-1 virus (Herpes Simplex) which causes Cold Sores and Fever Blisters, than the synthetic docosanol used in Abreva®*. This active fraction isolated from the jojoba seed consists of more than a dozen naturally occurring long chain fatty alcohols and fatty acids with carbon chain lengths of C-16 through C-26. According to in-vitro independent laboratory studies, this jojoba based active fraction has been determined to be 50 times stronger in fighting the virus cells than the synthetic active ingredient in Abreva®*.
