CO2 Extracts

CO2 Botanical Extracts are completely natural and exceptionally pure. These highly concentrated plant extracts are free of solvent residues and impurities such as heavy metals. All CO2 Extracts are oil soluble.

The Supercritical CO2 extraction process allows for selectivity of volatile or lipophilic compounds by varying the pressure used in processing.
●The SE or select method of CO2 Extraction allows for standardization of "select" constituents that includes mostly volatile, but also non-volatile beneficial oil-soluble compounds. SE CO2 Extracts can be compared to steam or hydro distilled essential oils.
●Some CO2 Extracts will contain mostly lipophilic components and can be compared to either cold pressed oils or “organic solvent extractions” (ie.hexane).
● Very often CO2 Extracts are a combination of both lipophilic and volatile plant components.

The environmentally friendly Supercritical CO2 process has been compared to other extraction methods and has been found to be superior in a number of ways – no solvent residues, no heavy metals or other impurities that are typically found in other extracts. In addition, CO2 Extracts have been found to be more nearly identical to the natural plant compounds with little, if any, chemical change after processing.

To prolong shelf-life, we recommend refrigeration for most of our CO2 Extracts. If stored properly, many of these extracts can have a shelf-life from 2 to 5 years.
