By utilising the latest advancements in technology and science at the purpose built processing plant, we ensure that every drop of crocodile oil produced is premium quality.
Every step of the process of purifying and filtering is done under strict conditions with digitally controlled temperature as overheating, or heating for too long will destroy essential properties of the oil.

Ethos & Ethics
We’re committed to conservation and sustainability, and believe that while mankind benefits from the restorative properties of crocodile oil, no crocodiles should suffer or live in unnatural surroundings.
We believe that by protecting our environment, we naturally ensure our future comfort and well being.
Ancient cultures around the world have been using crocodile oil for all sorts of skin issues.
It’s about time we got with the program. Since the 15th century crocodile oil has been used to ease skin irritations.
Crocodiles have been regarded as living fossils due to their resistance to evolutionary change. Scientists believe that theirs is the strongest immune system of any living creature on the planet.
Crocodile oil has been valued as a skin enriching oil for centuries by many ancient civilisations such as the Egyptians, Chinese and native Australians. In Chinese medicine crocodile oil was legendary for its healing powers.
Li Shizhen writing in the 1500’s during the Ming Dynasty is considered to be the greatest scientific naturalist in chinese history. He spoke of the uses of crocodile oil in the treatment of skin ailments and blemishes.
CrocodOil is the brainchild of husband and wife team Lloyd and Barbara Bantleman. They have experience gained over several years of working and running a nationally recognised marketing consultancy behind them.
They decided now is the time to put their efforts into creating and marketing a range of niche products that also have mass appeal. Products that would make a real difference to many people’s quality of life.
Our story In early 2016, while on holiday in Zambia we discovered for ourselves what Crocodile Oil can do for human skin problems. Many of our family and friends have experienced skin problems over the years, and none of them have ever found anything that really addressed their skin problems – Until we discovered crocodile oil in southern africa.
Once back in the United Kingdom we began to research what makes crocodile oil so special. The findings were so amazing that the decision was taken to pursue our belief that we could create our particular type of crocodile oil products where we could make a real difference to the quality of life for many people who have skin concerns.
So we went back to South Africa with our objective to find a supplier who would understand and share our goals and ethos who bred and reared crocodiles in a truely animal friendly manner.
After several weeks we chose a supplier who clearly demonstrated their family’s commitment to animal welfare, the environment, plus absolute attention to detail in their desire to produce luxury grade products.
However the challenge didn’t end with sourcing a raw product as pure as you can get. Our aim from the beginning was to have all production and formulations carried out in the UK, this approach would give us and our customers the quality assurance that comes with having the knowledge that all our products are produced to the highest UK and EU cosmetic standards. Once back in the UK the search was on to find a production partner.
Ultimately we have teamed up with an established UK laboratory who now formulate, produce and pack our finished oils and creams. We believe that the partners we have engaged with, help us produce the purest most effective range of crocodile oil products available in the UK.
Man cannot continue to mindlessly strip nature of its valuable natural
resources. We at CrocodOil believe that what’s taken from nature, should be replaced and where possible replenished with even more than we took.
Our partners operate in exactly the same way.
All their crocodiles are reared with real care, are well nourished and kept in a natural, relaxed environment. These conditions give the animals the freedom to express normal behaviour patterns which maintains their long term health.
No animals are bred for their oil, as the oil is a by-product of the crocodile farming process. Animals are reared for their high protein meat, while the skins are used in the clothing industry.
To sustain the wild crocodile population, many farms release up to 30% of
their hatchlings back into the wild. This helps to maintain the balance
