Teubes | Oils Out Of Africa

Citrus Oils & Natural Extracts

South Africa produces a wide range of citrus fruits from plantations situated throughout the country; on the West Coast, the East Coast, the South Coast and inland. Consequently, a variety of citrus oil qualities abound, enabling South African citrus oils to match those from many different regions of the world.

Teubes offers the following citrus oils:

  • Orange oil (mid-season and Valencia)
  • Lemon oil
  • Grapefruit oil (white, pink and red)
  • Tangerine oil
  • Lime oil (distilled and cold-pressed)
  • Clementine oil

From these oils, Teubes produces a number of citrus extracts, including:

  • Folded citrus oils (5, 10 and 20 fold), of Orange, Lemon, Grapefruit, Lime and Tangerine
  • Distillates such as D-Limonene, Valencene and Nootkatone
  • Citrus aldehydes and citrus sesquiterpenes
  • Citrus aroma oils, such as Orange Aroma oil and Lemon Aroma oil
  • Grapefruit Aroma oil and Tangerine Aroma oil

In South Africa, the citrus season begins in April and ends in September. Oil is normally available three to four weeks after the commencement of the fruit harvests, which occur as follows:

  • Grapefruit – mid-April to late June
  • Lemon – June to September
  • Navel Orange – June and July
  • Valencia Orange – July to September
  • Tangerine – July and August
