Crocodile Oil in Singapore is Sourced Ethically
Crocodiles are not hunted or killed just for their oils. This is wasteful and not ethical too.
Crocodile farms have to adhere to CITES international convention to protect wildlife. They breed these reptiles for their meat and skin, while fats are discarded as a waste product.
The farm takes the unwanted, discarded fats and refines them into medicated oils. It enhance and purifies them for human application. Once done, it is bottled and distributed out globally.

Where to buy crocodile oil?
You can buy from retail shops in Singapore or online at the bottom.
In Singapore, we have a modern crocodile farm where they are recovering the fats, refining it and bottling it directly in Singapore, with modern and hygiene facilities. As each crocodile only provides 600g of fat ( 21 ounces) because they are lean and fit, a bottle of oil is difficult to come by.
Crocodile oil is harvested and freshly packaged in Singapore.
Most mass-market brands are not pure or from the best parts of the crocodile. Long Kwan Hung is considered a premium brand because they use premium ingredients.
If you are concerned about aging looks and facial skin care, there is also a premium version with Ginseng added. The Ginseng cream crocodile oil moisturizes aging skin and lightens and reduce wrinkles with ginseng essence. For those youth with acne problems, you can get specially formulated Acne Gel crocodile oil.
We have used these products ourselves and we love how effective they are in lightening our skin and wrinkles =)
