Khaty's is a Swiss company that produces organic essential oils in collaboration with small family businesses and cooperatives.
They also work with non-organic-certified companies, as seals of approval are often a high cost, especially for small businesses.
They include these products in their range after their experts have checked them and at the same time grant the producer an interest-free loan so that he can have his product officially certified if he so desires. They also agree on annual purchase quantities with the producers so that they have the financial resources to renew their organic certificates each year independently.

Khaty's examines the producers' cultivation areas every year: Among other things, the condition of the soil, the origin of the irrigation, the neighboring fields and the biodiversity are checked.

All of their oils are vegan and not tested on animals.
