Product Details

Rosemary antioxidant extract - description, recommendations

Rosemary extract has recognised antioxidant, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. It is used for delaying the oxidation process of cosmetics, vegetable or essential oils. It is a concentrated composition containing between 13 - 15% phenolic diterpenes of which more than 9% carnosic acid.

Obtaining method: by CO₂ extraction
About CO₂ extraction: it is an environmentally friendly, clean, high-tech method, approved by organic certification bodies, which allows a higher yield than cold pressing. The method guarantees maximum purity of the extract, no alteration and no damage to the plant's compounds. Carbon dioxide is inert, odourless, non-toxic and available indefinitely.
During CO₂ extraction, substances sensitive to higher temperatures remain intact and compounds with oxidative potential are not affected due to the exclusion of oxygen.
A very important advantage is the longer shelf life of these oils obtained by CO₂ extraction compared to those obtained by pressing, maceration or even distillation.
