Quality & Traceability

At Agar, we take quality seriously: With Essenza by Agar™ the approach remained the same and Certificates of Analysis are available to certify the quality of the oils against minimum parameters.

Furthermore, most of our oils are certified organic or in the process to be, meaning thorough inspections have been carried out to ensure the traceability of the biomasses, the absence of any contamination and that processing is done in ways to ensure the oils are 100% natural.

Essenza by Agar™ is distributed amongst several retailers, spas and distributors in Kenya, Uganda and South Sudan and shall soon expand to more countries. At Agar Limited we are wholesalers and sell the oils in bulk: our minimum order quantity is of only 10 bottles to help the smaller distributors and spas, and we shall distribute in bottles also the bigger orders with accompanying info pages for each type of oil.
