ETHICAL TRACEABILITY HelloRainforest oil is verifiable during all steps of production; including farming, harvesting, bottling and distribution. It is chemical and pesticide free. We use natural nutrients to fertilize and enrich the soil such as our organically grown yuka swales. To attain unsurpassed quality and consistency we are partnered directly with our supply chain and have a vested interest in all aspects of our product.
COMMUNITY RESPONSIBILITY We have a unique relationship with the local farmers and community to grow and harvest our fruit. Annual expansion helps improve the local standard of living and reduces poverty by providing employment opportunities to the struggling populace. Our community shared profit model creates additional incentives for workers to produce the finest oil as their income is increased from each quality harvest.
PRESERVING THE RAINFOREST The Amazon Rainforest can now be left untouched to safeguard the biodiversity of the ecosystem. Over the past two decades our partner-supplier has been returning prime deforested land to the original owners and re-purposing it for production. Our scalable farm model incorporates elements of agro-ecology and permaculture. Our carbon capturing footprint and bio-diverse cultivatable land is continuously expanding.
