Fair for Life is a certification program for fair trade in agriculture, manufacturing and trade.

The Company’s first Fair for Life certification is for its jojoba farm in Arizona, the first farm to receive this assurance in the United States. As a leading global supplier of jojoba and its derivatives to the beauty and personal care industry, the certification recognizes Vantage’s focus on sustainability and emphasizes its From Farms to Formulations® initiative which provides transparency and control in the jojoba oil supply chain.

Vantage offers a complete range of jojoba oil grades, from standard to organic, virgin, golden and colorless, as well as more than 70 jojoba derivatives.
