Earthoil began growing essential oils in 1997 in Zimbabwe and a year later moved to Kenya shortly followed by Earthoil India. We are proud to provide oils with a story, owing to our ethical and sustainable approach.

Our local or regionally sourced seeds are carefully processed at Athi River, Kenya and are complemented by oils produced in other African countries by dedicated co-operatives.  These are conventional, organic or Fairtrade.

Sustainable and Ethical Sourcing

Sustainable and ethical sourcing is at the heart of our business. We adhere to strict standards from the soil to the oil. Our long-term partnerships, heavy involvement and close working relationships with our growers, ensures full traceability of all our products and ensures the highest standards of products are maintained.

Organic Certified

Earthoil has a unique involvement with the organic process at every level of the supply chain. We guarantee organic standard where it is served and with our own rigorous, analytical testing and screening weensure consistent product quality and service excellence in order to preserve the organic integrity of our organic products. Additionally, to fulfil international customers’ demands, Earthoil is also certified to NOP organic standards by IMO.

 

Committed to Fairtrade

Earthoil is committed to Fairtrade through Fair for Life certification with the Institute for Marketecology (IMO). With advanced purchasing plans, long-term supply terms and investment in community grower projects we can help improve the livelihoods for our producers. The Fairtrade premium which is also paid on top of the farm gate price is channelled into a separate fund for social, community and environmental projects, providing opportunities for the wider community in rural populations across the globe. The money could help provide desks for schools, scholarships and food for orphanages.

You can rely on Earthoil’s products because of our unique position, being fully involved in the production. Earthoil is certified by the Soil Association for organic Health and Beauty care products, Soil Association EU organic certification, SDA National Organic Program, COSMOS organic standard and COSMOS Approved Treatttaromes.
