Bringing Philippines natural extracts to the world.
We’re here to make a difference.
Iba Botanicals has reintroduced the production of ylang ylang (Cananga odorata) essential oil to the Philippines, its native land. Working in partnership with hundreds of displaced indigenous people, we have established vast plantations of this flowering tree in an area of the Philippines where it grows naturally along the road and in the forest. We harvest daily before sunrise, and only the highest quality flowers are sent for distillation.
Iba Botanicals has established large plantations of vetiver grass (Vetiveria zizanioides), for the extraction if oil from its roots. This presents an exciting new development for vetiver markets, with a quality on par with Haitian oil but some significant improvements in supply chain traceability and risk mitigation.
Elemi essential oil is produced from the resin of the pili tree (Canarium luzonicum), a tree that can only be found in the Philippines. Despite this, the vast majority of elemi oil production occurs outside the Philippines, following the export of raw resins. This is a sub-optimal supply chain, with limited traceability and transparency, and leaves the local Filipino communities that harvest these resins to enjoy little further value from this unique Filipino natural ingredient.
