Natural, Sustainable, Ethical
Citriodiol is derived from the oil of the Eucalyptus Citriodora tree by steam distillation and enhanced through a simple conversion process.
Citriodiol is produced by mimicking and accelerating nature’s own ageing in the Eucalyptus Citriodora leaf, resulting in a highly effective active ingredient that is supported by robust data and approved by leading international authorities.
Essential Oil production is an inherently green business as the health and vitality of the soil and trees themselves play a vital role in the quality of the oil produced. Steam distillation is used to extract the oil which is an age old process using only the leaves and twigs without harvesting the entire tree.
Extensively tested low-toxicity profile and low-transdermal absorption properties support safe use by children and pregnant or nursing women.
Safe for the Environment
In addition to many toxicological studies of Citriodiol to ensure product safety for consumers, rigorous environmental testing has been conducted to ensure that our product is not harmful to the environment.
These tests have proven that Citriodiol is rapidly degradable, so will not build up to potentially harmful levels in our soils or waterways unlike many synthetic alternatives such as DEET. Citriodiol is sourced from natural GMO-free plant oil, is organic and is not toxic to birds, honey bees and other insects beneficial to the environment.
Citriodiol has been approved by ECOCERT as a raw material that meets the COSMOS standards for organic and natural ingredients. As a COSMOS approved ingredient, Citriodiol can be used in end-use products which are to be certified as COSMOS natural or COSMOS organic.
