We support sustainable farming projects, such as the Agarwood Project founded by The Rainforest Project. This Foundation has created a durable and commercially viable solution to the problem of over-harvested Aquilaria trees, which are cut down in order to extract Agarwood oil.
A hugely valuable essential oil, Agarwood was so over-harvested in the last century that it became almost extinct. Fifteen years ago The Rainforest Project began work to grow sustainable Aquilaria trees in Vietnam. They established contracts with local farmers to plant seedlings and now over 200,000 seedlings are matured to produce very high-quality, sustainably grown Agarwood oil.
Cochine is proud to use oil from certified Aquilaria Crassna trees from the Mekong Delta. We use botanical wax from RSPO certified sustainable suppliers, PET recyclable plastic bottles and our outer packaging is made from over 90% recycled card.
