Jojoba

A shrub grown in desert climates. The oil of the jojoba plant has a nutty aroma and has long-lasting lubricant qualities. Sex lubricant manufacturers often refine the substance to remove the aroma.

It is also a fungicide, and it is sometimes added in small amounts to personal lubricants to prevent fungal growth. Pure jojoba oil should not be used with latex condoms. Like other vegetable oils, jojoba oil can break down latex and silicone.
