EXOTIC COCONUT OILS
Coconut oil is indispensable in personal care products due its exceptional functionalities and values. Our exotic coconut oils have all the functionality of regular coconut oil but with added characteristics. These exotic coconut oils are products of innovative technology as in cold centrifuge series™ for virgin oil de coco crème®, or exotic process of enfleurage as in Monoi de Tahiti, or natural infusion as in vanilla de coco-crème™. These are simply exotic coconut oils with special attributes beyond high stability and lathering capabilities. Special attributes: 100% natural, excellent moisturizing capabilities, occlusivity and highly stable.
EXOTIC BUTTERS & DERIVATIVES
Naturally occurring butters range between soft waxy substances that form a solid or semisolid at ambient temperatures to hard and brittle like cocoa butter. These are a group of natural fats with a high content of symmetrical monounsaturated triglycerides. They contain 50-60% of saturated fatty acids, mainly stearic acid, and up to 47% of monounsaturated oleic acid. These are generally tropical jungle crops and production volume is dependent on nature’s cooperation. Important attributes: narrow melting point, high content of saturated fatty acids, high in oxidation stability, viscosity and emulsion stability, and contains many ingredients beneficial to hair and skin.
“Nutri-Butters” are natural compound of novelty oils and exotic butters. This natural process avoids and does not use hydrogenation at all. This way, it maintains the overall naturalness of the product.
NATURAL CARRIER OILS
Our selections of natural carrier oils are mostly exotic in nature with natural habitats specific to different parts of the world. In recent years, interest in these oils has grown dramatically as science has proven their beneficial characteristics and which have long been known and used in non-western cultures. These oils have therapeutic and functional properties. Some are rich in specific essential fatty acids, or high oxidative stability. Others have rejuvenating and healing properties, natural vitamins or very specific functions that make them unique. These natural carrier oils function beyond as carrier of nutrients; they can be nutrients and active ingredients in their own right.
BASE OILS & WAXES
These are solid plant oils (palm, palm kernel oil, coconut oil) and naturally occurring waxes that act as hardening agents, emollients, and viscosity modifiers. These bases are critical elements in soap and lotion-cream formulation. They have long shelf life and a high degree of stability which is critical to serve as a backbone in formulation. Along with these oils are other ingredients like Castor oil and glycerin which are equally important in personal care products formulations. In addition to long shelf life, they are also humidifier, emollient, lathering agents and moisturizers. These functions make them a “backbone” for personal care formulation.
These are often mislabeled as “carrier oil” although technically speaking, they are not. Novelty oils are pure oleaginous extracts that exhibit healing properties or contain nutrients, vitamins, and minerals that make them active ingredients and natural additives. Their functionality in formulation is mainly attributed to unique fatty acid arrangements. Most of these novelty oils are actually nutraceuticals which can be used as a healing substances or supplements, and in some bio-medical applications. If used directly on the body, these oils normally will still need a carrier oil to apply to due to their high concentration and substance density. To use as a carrier oil, it is ideal to mix them in a 5-15% dilution in order to carry other nutrients (as essential oil) and to have synergistic effect with their own nutrients and other active ingredients.

After careful evaluation, we are offering a selection of 100% pure essential oils most important for day to day needs. Essential oil is the essence of a plant and are used both as a therapeutic and esthetic agent in formulation. For full efficacy, it is critical to use a pure unadulterated essential oil.
