Desert King International was founded in 1978 as a pioneer in jojoba oil production. It rapidly became the largest and most reputable jojoba oil producer setting the standards for quality jojoba oil products. Since then, Desert King International has added Yucca Schidigera and Quillaja saponaria products to its high quality natural products line, becoming not only the largest manufacturer of Yucca and Quillaja, but the only company basic in both products with manufacturing facilities in Baja California, Mexico (Yucca schidigera products) and in Chile (Quillaja saponaria products)
“ Our commitment is to continue to grow and to continue to be the leaders that we always have been in the Quillaja industry.”
Quillay (Quillaja) is a tree that grows only in Chile, whose biomass (wood, bark, leaves and roots) has a high content of triterpenic saponins. Saponins are natural emulsifiers and multipurpose foaming agents.
Yucca schidigera is a plant native to the deserts of Baja California and Sonora Mexico, it is rich in naturally occurring saponins which are responsible for its uses as foaming, wetting and dispersing agents. As the leading supplier, Desert King is able to meet the growing need for the highest quality Yucca schidigera products.
