Macerates and extract oils
Maceration is a very old physical process to dissolve volatile or unstable ingredients from vegetable raw materials. We have an ever increasing range of macerates, such as St. John's wort macerate, which is exclusively produced by the company hegema, or lavender flower macerate.
Through our fresh plant maceration we achieve the maximum active ingredient profile, but also our maceration with dried plants brings out great macerates. The impeccable quality of the base oil and the plant itself is, besides the maceration itself, an important factor. The maceration must be fast, oxygen-free and low in germs to avoid microbiological contamination. For all macerations we recommend dark and cool storage to maintain the product quality.
Our innovative maceration for fresh plant macerates includes
-Under exclusion of oxygen -> low peroxide number
-Harvest freshness -> from field to production in 10 minutes
-Maximum amount of active ingredient -> individual production method depending on plant species
(e.g.: with St. John's wort oil the influence of natural sun is indispensable)
