BOIS DE ROSE OIL EX LEAVES


January 2019

CITES COMPLIANT

The tight regulatory controls and sustainability issues facing Bois de Rose Oil make it a fitting illustration of the difficulties of sourcing natural ingredients today.  The nearly eight-fold increase in prices of Bois de Rose since 1999 has put a significant strain on the costs of existing formulations and restricts its use in new natural products.  The true threat of this dwindling availability is that this well-loved ingredient for which a faithful natural reproduction is nearly impossible might fall out of use. In order to keep Bois de Rose Oil part of the perfumer’s palette, Berjé carries a Bois de Rose Oil distilled from the leaves and stems of the tree rather than the heartwood.  This adaptation spares the individual trees, limits the regulatory effort involved in production, and maintains a comparable Bois de Rose Oil for continued use by future generations of perfumers.

Berjé maintains a regular supply of Bois de Rose Oil, Linalool ex Bois de Rose, as well as Organic Bois de Rose Oil

Additionally factories are still trying to comply with China’s environmental policies. Demand has been relatively low, so pricing has been stable. However, any new demand could cause prices to rise.

While it is currently the production season, reports say demand is off. Since there has been urban development in Guangxi and Yunnan, labor costs have increased, as there is better pay working in the cities. This kept prices firm and collection down. Yield is expected to be small and prices are expected to continue to rise.
