WHY CHOOSE SCFE TECHNOLOGY AND CO2 TOTAL EXTRACTS?

CO2 Total Extracts

Supercritical CO2 extraction uses carbon dioxide, which turns to a liquid at high pressure, and passes it over the natural material to extract all the scent components without damaging them.

CO2 Total Extracts

The advantage of supercritical extraction is its ability to extract much bigger molecules, such as lipids (omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids), chlorophyll, and waxes.

CO2 Total Extracts

These extracts are free of heavy metals, microbes, solvents and preservatives. They are very concentrated as these are full extractions, which include the essential oils as well as the fat-soluble and water-soluble substances from the plants. 

CO2 Total Extracts

Steam distillation is a slow process and there is degradation of products via hydrolysis or polymerization of sensitive components due to prolong heat exposure. More over some components of the plant are soluble in water so they are not part of the final essential oil.

CO2 Total Extracts

Supercritical CO2 extraction leads to an extraordinary quality in which sensitive components are preserved.

CO2 Total Extracts

CO2 Extract are closer in composition to the oil as it occurs in the botanical plant than those obtained by other techniques. Best as a flavor and wonderful perfume ingredient: no solvent residue, no off notes, more top notes, more back note, and better solubility.

CO2 Total Extracts

Cleaner process both in terms of environmental impact and the yield.

CO2 Total Extracts

CO2 Extracts are extremely pure and can be used in herbal medicine as well as aromatherapy and natural perfumery.
