Lancashire Crocodile Oil business celebrates first anniversary

A Lancashire skincare range with extra bite has just celebrated its first year in business using an ingredient that’s natural and as old as the hills.

Husband and wife team Lloyd and Babs Bantleman from Preston, launched ‘Crocodoil’ last December that addresses the problems of dry, flaky, blotchy and blemish prone skin. 100 per cent natural and fully cosmetic tested, certified and processed in the UK.  Crocodoil is mainly comprised of ethically sourced crocodile oil which is a by-product of the crocodile farming industry.

It has long being recognised that Crocodiles have fantastic natural healing abilities. They are renowned for being able to resist bacterial infection and have a natural defense system against invading bacteria, viruses and fungi.  Now in CrocodOil, these properties have been captured in a unique range of face, hand and body care products.

The CrocodOil range contains Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs), Omega 3, 6 and 9, which are essential for the body to function properly, as well as having strong anti-inflammatory properties.  CrocodOil products also contain Vitamin E – a major antioxidant and healing agent; Vitamin A – a skin repairer and antioxidant; naturally occurring Oleic Acid – a natural skin cell rejuvenator; Turpines – which are naturally occurring antiseptics and Sapogens, which keep the skin supple.

CrocodOil source pure oil from ethical, government registered farms in South Africa which is then formulated and filled in the UK in line with strict EU Cosmetic Standards legislation.

Babs Bantleman, founder of CrocodOil, said: “I discovered what Crocodile oil could do for skin problems when I was recommended to try it whilst on holiday in Zambia.  Over the past 18 months, we have been developing CrocodOil as a range of products that can help to relieve a variety of skin conditions on the face, hands and body for any age and any skin type, even very sensitive types.”

Although CrocodOil is relatively new to the UK market, Crocodile oil is not a new treatment.  It has been renowned since the 1500s for its legendary healing powers, when it began to be used by the Chinese during the Ming Dynasty. It has been used as a valued skin enriching oil for centuries by many ancient civilizations, such as the Eqyptians and native Australians. For centuries, these diverse cultures have used crocodile oil to help ease and soothe the discomfort of those with significant skin issues including dry, flaky and itchy skin.  Now produced under laboratory controlled conditions, this product brings a new level of comfort to people who have genuine skin concerns.

Babs adds: “We have formulated a range of products that can counteract the negative effects of the environment we live in and the skin problems prevalent in the 21st century and especially so in this extra cold time of year. There were no nasties added to crocodile oil in previous centuries and we’re keen to make sure that our CrocodOil contains no parabens, palm oil, paraffin, or other additives which can be detrimental to our skin or the environment.”

The crocodile farms in South Africa have been licenced by the South African Govt, but Babs was keen to visit personally and ensure that animal welfare allowing crocs to display natural behavior and with plentiful access to running water and areas to bask was essential before going ahead with the venture.

CrocodOil is the only oil of its kind which is processed under strictly controlled conditions here in the UK.  Due to the latest advances in technology and science, every drop of CrocodOil is premium quality, as every step of the purification process is carried out under stringent conditions.  What customers are buying is a pure high grade oil, with only additions being added to enhance the performance on skin.

It’s been a busy year for the team and new product developments for treating equine skin disorders and smaller pets is well underway for a launch in 2018.  “Our first year in 2017 has been a whirlwind” said Babs, “and with the new products coming out to help soothe pets and horses, 2018 is looking to be even busier”.
