Continuing to build on their mission to source change-making ingredients from around the world, Naturally Australian Products (NAP) has recently partnered with a visionary essential oil producer in the tiny country of Eswatini, Africa to source Certified Organic Eucalyptus radiata, Eucalyptus dives and Eucalyptus smithii Essential Oils.
Eswatini grapples with the highest HIV rate in the entire world, and more than 54% of children under 15 years old are classified as orphaned or vulnerable children. NAP’s newest essential oil supplier is embedded in the local community, driven to create sustainable enterprises within Eswatini. These enterprises employ local residents and generate profits that fund family-based orphan care and family reunification programs, paving the way for brighter futures.
Now, brands looking to make meaningful ingredient choices are reaching for these organic oils to amplify their products’ environmental and social impacts. This range of transformative Eucalyptus oils also offer numerous direct benefits: including antioxidant, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and analgesic properties that we see translated into a range of personal care formulations targeting pain relief, respiratory issues, skin and hair health, and even uplifting functional formulations to energize and enhance focus.
The supplier’s co-founder shares their belief that "Every transaction has the power to evoke humanity and promote positive change. Through our work, we aim to amplify the voices and stories of Eswatini's essential oil producers while supporting the welfare of orphaned and vulnerable children."
NAP chooses to work with suppliers who are moved equally by purpose and profit. NAP’s CEO, Robyn Ingersole, shares how their new partners can achieve true change by extending value and visibility to local producers, “By opening new market avenues for Eswatini's essential oil botanical growers, these producers are enhancing economic opportunities while nurturing a sense of pride and empowerment within the community.”
NAP supports the core of their mission - the belief that essential oils embody stories of transformation. With every drop, they celebrate not only the natural essence, but also the journey of change and growth behind it. These producers are creating a circle of positivity that uplifts lives and restores hope, redefining commerce as a force for good, proving that business success and social responsibility can coexist harmoniously. By nurturing the well-being of Eswatini's essential oil growers and orphaned children, NAP’s brands can now be a part of this vision of unity, growth and shared prosperity.
