Cornelius offers a range of vegetable oils in partnership with Olvea and Cornelius Own Brand essential oils.
Olvea Vegetable Oils has established sustainable long-term partnerships with cooperatives in regions such as Burkina Faso (for shea butter, sesame oil and, soon, moringa oil) and Morocco (for argan oil).
The Burkina Faso manufacturing site is a green facility and offers, fair, transparent and "guaranteed remuneration for the local women who are members of the cooperatives," according to an official announcement.
In Morocco, Olvea Vegetable Oils has partnered with Marocavie, an organization that works to improve education for children, provide socioeconomic opportunities for women and their families, prevent the spread of the desert, and slow down the region's rural exodus. Working with Marocavie, Olvea Morocco gives a percentage of its turnover for every kilo of oil sold.
