In all of its community grower projects, the organisation is involved from the ground up – in the selection of planting material, the cultivation methods, harvesting and processing – having a long term and trusting relationship with everyone it works with.
We proudly manufacture from soil to oil. With our own manufacturing facilities in Kenya, we use cold pressing techniques to extract pure oil to the highest customer specification.
Our expert team on the ground understand how to utilise the ideal processes and technologies to produce ethically processed oils to the highest possible standard.
We supply our oils to customers all over the world. We produce both orange and conventional grades of oil and have also recently become a carbon neutral organisation. By working in partnership with our customers, our expert team work tirelessly to ensure needs are met and meaningful solutions are delivered.
The Coconut Craze
Coconut has been one of the hottest ingredients this year and its popularity shows no signs of slowing. It grows prolifically across tropical and sub-tropical parts of the world and its oil has been used as an ingredient in personal care, both as a skin moisturiser and hair conditioner for hundreds of years.
As it continues to gather pace in new product launches, we look at where it’s sourced from.
Earthoil supports a virgin coconut oil project in Samoa, run by a not-for-profit women’s foundation. This unique venture is aimed at rebuilding the economic independence of individual villages across the region. The foundation currently works with many family groups, with several virgin coconut oil (VCO) sites already up and running. This means any profit generated from the sale of this material returns to the village and the people within the community.
This week the Javits Convention Center in New York City hosted the New York Society of Cosmetic Chemists (NYSCC) Supplier’s Day trade show event. Supplier’s Day has become one of the must-attend events for anyone in the cosmetic chemistry industry and is a great place for seeking business development, innovation and education.
Earthoil is committed to helping improve the lives of those who are involved with our projects - the 600 + farmers and their families, who work together to decide how fair trade premiums are used.
We are excited to have helped deliver 40 new 3000ltr water tanks to its Tea Tree Farmers in Kenya. The farmers are members of the Kenya Organic Oil Farmers Association (KOOFA) and are the first to benefit from the three year project that will see water tanks issued to all of the 615 farmers they are hoping to support. Over 2000 family members will eventually utilise the new water tanks, hoping to put extra time that is usually used to fetch water into other activities.
Earthoil, the personal care and cosmetics ingredients division of Treatt, offers a range of pure, organic, fair trade and natural essential oils.

With consumers increasingly seeking safer and ethically sound personal care products, allergen levels create fresh opportunities for manufacturers worldwide to differentiate cosmetics and fragrances.

Earthoil Showcase African Oils at In-Cosmetics, Paris, 2016
Far from being one homogenous continent, Africa comprises over 50 countries each with a heritage of using indigenous nuts and seeds to make oils for a variety of applications from food to cosmetics.
Earthoil has responded to increased global demand for sustainably-sourced ingredients with the launch of an organic, fair trade (Fair For Life), sugar cane-derived alternative to petro-ethanol.

Using technology designed to maintain the ecological and social harmony of the surrounding environment, the ethanol is grown, harvested and processed according to a tightly controlled, holistic system.
