Where does AJ's Body Care source their ingredients?
Olive Oil - Cockatoo Grove
Our Soaps using 100% Australian Certified Organic Extra Virgin Olive oil.
Historic Cockatoo Grove is nestled on a tranquil bend of the upper Murray River, an Australian region synonymous with fine food and wine production. The Cockatoo Olive grove was established in 1996 with trees of Italian and Spanish origin chosen for their fine oil quality.
Cockatoo Grove uses state of the art processing facilities. Their Premium Organic Olives are pressed within 4 hours of harvesting to ensure freshness and minimum possible free fatty acid levels, it is then packed and stored in oxygen free, light free environment.
After a long search and testing of various Organic Olive oils, here at AJ Bodycare decided that Cockatoo Grove offered all the benchmarks we set to commence our new range of Organic Olive oil Soaps. We are pleased to offer what we feel will be the best soap we have offered to date. Our first Soap is a scent free blend of Cockatoo Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Organic Shea Butter.
Look out for our 3 new soaps that will shortly be added to our Organic Range, keep watching our site for the coming new changes.
Goats Milk - Nimbin Valley Dairy
We use Goats Milk sourced from Nimbin Valley Dairy situated in the lush countryside of Northern NSW.
Why Nimbin Valley Dairy Goats Milk? The Goats at Nimbin Valley spend their days grazing outdoors across 120 hectares of fertile green pastures. They have shelter from the rain and are happy to greet their milkers each morning at 5 am when it’s time for milking. Their well being is an absolute priority, they don’t feed them any genetically modified food or anything else their owners wouldn’t be happy to eat themselves.
The goats have their own nutritionist who keep them happy, healthy and in top condition. Their diet is balanced with the correct amounts of protein, energy, minerals and vitamins.
Their health is checked regularly on each member of the herd and the goat is always rested from milking unto fully recovered if undergoing treatment. This is just one way their milk is kept free from chemicals, hormones, antibiotics and genetically modified ingredients.
Nimbin Valley Goat’s Milk is now used in the complete range of Goats Milk Soap in AJ Bodycare soaps, we feel confident that we have created the best Goats milk soap yet!
