Once the beauty industry's most in-demand ingredient, whale sperm oil was derived from "whaling," the inhumane practice of hunting and capturing whales for their meat and oil. By the 1930s, the rapidly increasing demand for whale oil led to extensive hunting, pushing the species to the brink of extinction.
Not only was it crucial to end commercial whaling, there was also a need to find a sustainable alternative. Thankfully, environmentalists discovered the unique liquid wax structure of Jojoba Oil to be remarkably similar to the structure of whale sperm oil, deeming it an efficient substitute.
