Solvent Extraction is a process which involves extracting oil from oil-bearing materials by treating it with a low boiler solvent as opposed to extracting the oils by mechanical pressing methods (such as expellers, hydraulic presses, etc.)
A supercritical fluid (SCF) is any substance at a temperature and pressure above its critical point, where distinct liquid and gas phases do not exist. It can effuse through solids like a gas, and dissolve materials like a liquid. In addition, close to the critical point, small changes in pressure or temperature result in large changes in density, allowing many properties of a supercritical fluid to be "fine-tuned". Supercritical fluids are suitable as a substitute for organic solvents in a range of industrial and laboratory processes. Carbon dioxide and water are the most commonly used supercritical fluids, being used for decaffeination and power generation, respectively.
fractional distillation. Crude oil (also called petroleum) is a mixture of different hydrocarbons. Many useful products can be made from these hydrocarbons. But first the useful ones must be extracted from the crude oil and separated from one another.
Oleoresins are semi-solid extracts composed of a resin in solution in an essential and/or fatty oil, obtained by evaporation of the solvent(s) used for their production. Naturally occurring oleoresins are also known as balsams.
Curcumin is a bright yellow chemical produced by some plants. It is the principal curcuminoid of turmeric (Curcuma longa), a member of the ginger family (Zingiberaceae). It is sold as an herbal supplement, cosmetics ingredient, food flavoring, and food coloring.As a food additive, its E number is E100.
It was first isolated in 1815 when Vogel and Pierre Joseph Pelletier reported the isolation of a "yellow coloring-matter" from the rhizomes of turmeric and named it curcumin. Although curcumin has been used historically in Ayurvedic medicine, its potential for medicinal properties remains unproven and is questionable as a therapy when used orally.
Azadirachtin ist eine chemische Verbindung, welche zu den Limonoiden gehört. Es ist ein sekundärer Metabolit und Hauptbestandteil des Samens des Neembaums. Azadirachtin ist ein oxidiertes Tetranortriterpenoid mit Enolether-, Acetal-, Halbacetal- und Epoxid-Funktionen.
We offer concentrated, highly-aromatic, oily Floral Absolutes made up of Natural Flower Extracts. Floral Absolutes offered by us are manufactured from fresh concretes and with the use of perfumery grade alcohol.
Absolute consists of a viscous liquid or semi-solid mass containing alcohol soluble waxes, pigments and the volatile oil of the plant material extracted. Alcohol Extraction is the only practical way to obtain the aromatic material from many of the most delicate florals, such as jasmine, tuberose and narcissus. Absolutes are often colored since they retain more of the less volatile molecules.
Turmeric is a rhizomatous herbaceous perennial plant (Curcuma longa) of the ginger family, Zingiberaceae. It is native to southern Asia, requiring temperatures between 20 and 30 °C (68 and 86 °F) and a considerable amount of annual rainfall to thrive. Plants are gathered annually for their rhizomes and propagated from some of those rhizomes in the following season.
