Who We Are
We are your trusted source for pure, high-quality Sri-Lankan plant extracts.
To consistently supply quality products to our customers, contributing to the economic growth of Sri Lanka.
To be a world-leading provider of high-quality extracts worldwide, all derived from Sri Lanka.
Essential oils are concentrated hydrophobic liquids containing volatile aroma compounds extracted from plants.
Our essential oils are produced using steam distillation at our distillation plant, equipped with high-quality stainless steel. The dimensions of all parts of the plant have been designed to ensure desired oil quality with expected plant performance.
Our essential oils are concentrated natural fragrant essences derived using modern technologies and a carefully controlled steam distillation process.
Oleoresins are a natural combination of oil and resin that is extracted from plant raw materials. The oleoresin has the same character and property of the raw spice it is obtained from, and fully reproduces the character of the respective spice and spice oil.
Being that they are highly concentrated and are uniform in flavor and fragrance, oleoresins are ideal for the food industry.
Our oleoresins are made from the finest raw materials and meet international standards for quality.
Our product line includes essential oils and oleoresins made from cinnamon, black pepper, clove, cardamom, nutmeg, ginger, and more - all with raw materials sourced in Sri Lanka and distilled by us in our own facility located just outside Colombo, Sri Lanka.
Following the production of the essential oil and/or the oleoresin, LakEssence can also further fractionate and concentrate the active compounds in our essential oil or oleoresin through short-path distillation (SPD) or fractional distillation at our location in Batavia, Illinois, USA.
We serve a variety of industries, including flavor and fragrance, perfumery, aromatherapy, cosmetics and personal hygiene products, foods and confectionery, and pharmaceuticals.
Our employees are educated continuously on current trends and serve markets internationally.
