Extraction Process – Croton Oil is sincerely a Green extraction material. After the Croton Nut is harvested, it then undergoes mechanical pressing to produce Croton Oil – a natural process done without the use of harmful extraction chemicals and requiring very small amounts of water. In addition, mechanical pressing ensures the oil retains its bioactives, remaining as potent and nutrient-rich as possible.

  • Over 150, 000 Croton trees planted
  • Over millions of Croton Megalocarpus trees conserved
  • Leaves our waterways clean from harsh extraction chemicals
