Down Under Enterprises is a vertically integrated grower, producer and global wholesale supplier of pure Australian Essential Oils and native botanical ingredients.
Products are sourced from their New South Wales farm Buhlambar, which lives in the heart of the traditional home of the Aboriginal Bundjalung people (in Bundjalung language, Buhlambar means ‘Home of Tea Tree’). Other small growers also contribute to the Down Under business.
Wholesale essential oils and botanicals on offer include Tea Tree, Lemon Myrtle, Sandalwood, Eucalyptus and more. Founded by a 6th generation Australian farmer, the business has kept sustainability as a core value since it was founded in 2001. Down Under Enterprises became certified organic as a processor in 2017, allowing then to handle final stages of product creation at their facilities for various organic customers across Australia.
Down Under’s sustainability ethos goes beyond just regenerative farming practices; they are also dedicated to worker rights, supply chain ethics and good corporate governance. This is demonstrated by their attainment of Certified B Corp status, having significantly surpassed the metrics required for certification. This accolade is a first for Australian cosmetic raw material suppliers. Down Under has also been awarded EcoVadis Platinum status for 2021, 2022 and 2023, a mark of their commitment to sustainability.

The business considers the global certified organic system as very important for integrity and consumer trust. As consumers pay a premium for certified organic, end-to-end traceability is integral and companies must be held to account regarding their organic practices. There is a substantial consumer demand for organic essential oil and botanical products, with the business exporting to markets including the United States and Europe.
