Who we are

Founded in 2013, Asili Natural Oils is a social enterprise, producing natural cosmetic ingredients for customers around the world in order to benefit those who need it most – Rwandan smallholder farmers.


Asili, a Swahili word meaning “from the source”, conveys our commitment to quality natural products from the ground up. Located in the country of Rwanda, Asili Natural Oils is a social impact company occupying a critical link in the supply chain – connecting hundreds of small-holder farmers to high value international markets. We are committed to serving our customers with professionalism and integrity, thereby ensuring benefit for farmer and customer.

Asili Natural Oils focuses on four oils as ingredients in cosmetic applications: Moringa Oil, Passionflower Oil, Wild African Calabash Oil and Chia Seed Oil. The unique properties of each oil make them ideal ingredients for a wide range of cosmetic products in body, face and hair care formulations.


Our team operates at all stages of the value chain, starting with field officers working day to day with our farmers, through to the production team turning seed into high quality oil. We aim to hire those in the greatest need, prioritizing employment for widows and orphans.

“Working with Asili has enabled me to achieve something in my life”
