Signet’s PPE and Protective Wear keeps NATTo employees safe throughout the tea tree oil’s growth and distillation process.
With a shared Australian heritage and commitment to safety, Signet and NATTo are the perfect fit.
Naturally Australian Tea Tree oil (NATTo) is an Australian company that produces the finest quality tea tree oil, which is free from any harmful chemicals, additives or synthetics. The company prides itself on practicing environmentally friendly and sustainable practices throughout its farming and production processes. Based on the luscious grounds of northern New South Wales, NATTo first started growing Melaleuca Alternifolia, better known as tea tree, there as this is its natural habitat. NATTo’s current 672 hectare property is considered to be the largest privately owned tea tree oil plantation in Australia.
The tree oil is steam-distilled from the leaves, branches and stems of the trees grown at NATTo’s plantation. The steam releases the aromatic molecules from the tea tree and opens the deposits of oil inside the plant. The molecules of the exquisite oils then escape into the steam, which is put through a cooling system, forming a liquid from which the essential oil is then extracted.
This process delivers the finished product of tea tree oil, which is used throughout NATTo’s product range.
Tea tree oil is used in a number of applications due to its high antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral qualities, making it, and NATTo’s products, an ideal natural treatment for skin, nails and hair.
The production and distillation process involves machinery with moving parts. In the same way NATTo prides itself on being an environmentally sustainable business, it also prides itself on being a safe place to work. Signet helps NATTo achieve this by providing a number of PPE and protective wear products such as gloves, ear plugs and respirators. Both Signet and NATTo share a commitment to remain Australian owned and operated. NATTo is proud to say its products are 100% Australian made, grown, harvested, distilled and bottled.
Signet celebrated its 50th birthday in 2018 and proudly remains an Australian owned family business.
Signet is proud to support Natto and over 60,000 other Aussies and their ventures.
