Baja Desert of California and Sonora desert of Mexico.

It is non-GMO, non-animal tested and very safe & mild and is suitable for shampoos, body washes, cleansers, etc. Manufacturer recommends a usage rate of 0.5% to a maximum of 3.0%
Yucca extract, Baja YE, has impressive sustainability credentials. Adhering to the strict regulations set by the Mexican Forestry Department, they ensure that the Yucca harvesting rate is not more than the plant’s natural recovery rate.
Once a colony of Yucca plants is identified for harvesting, Manufacturer harvests no more than 50% of the harvestable specimens. This process entails counting, measuring, and GPS tagging all individuals within a 1000 sq. metre area to develop an Environmental Impact Report.
All current raw material is obtained from wild harvest, however, Manufacturer has developed experimental Yucca plantations to assure a continued renewable supply for years to come.
