READ FURTHER BELOW FOR INFORMATION ON WHAT IS CO2 EXTRACTION.
BELOW IS GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT CO2 EXTRACTION, some of it applies to our Seabuckthorn, some doesn’t. From Salvatore Battaglia’s book, The Complete Guide To Aromatherapy:
Extraction with carbon dioxide is a relatively new process that has been hailed as a major breakthrough for the essential oil industry. Any substance can exist in three different states: gas, liquid and solid, depending on its temperature and pressure. In addition, certain substances can be found in the hypercritical state. They are neither liquid nor gas, but rather they are both. The hypercritical fluids disperse as readily as gases and also have solvent properties.
Carbon dioxide is one gas that becomes hypercritical Its hypercritical temperature is 33°C. Hypercritical carbon dioxide then becomes an excellent solvent for essential oils. The advantage is that the whole operation takes place at a low temperature and, therefore, the essential oil is not affected by heat, as may occur in the distillation process.
The extraction process is almost instantaneous and because the solvent is virtually inert, there are no chemical reactions between the solvent and the aromatic substances. The solvent can be removed simply by releasing the pressure. The whole process takes place in a closed chamber. Due to the expense, as Shirley Price also mentions, only a small amount of hypercritical essential oils have been produced so far, but commercial production may not be too far down the line.
Benefits of CO2 extraction: (1) less rearrangement of essential oil or other constituents because low temperature is used. (2) No concern regarding solvent residues.
Seabuckthorn Pulp CO2-to (Hippophae rhamnoides):
Seabuckthorn berries are well known in Western Europe for their juice products but they are also a unique source of rare and valuable lipids for cosmetic application. They have pain-killing and wound-healing properties, enhance the formation of cell tissue and are especially recommended for the treatment of skin damages by burns, sunburns or medical high energy radiation, for the therapy of bed sores, and for oral, genital and anal affections.
For cosmetic applications it is essential to only use true and genuine oils which are totally composed of seabuckthorn lipids and not the seabuckthorn oil macerates which are also on the market. Since cold pressing of seabuckthorn lipids is difficult or impossible due to the low oil content, the oil must be separated by extraction procedures, CO2-extraction being the method of choice for pure and high-grade oils.
Certificate of Analysis (CofA) and Safety Data Sheet (SDS). We publish on our website those documents for most of our products, some products don't provide either because the product doesn't require it. In this same section where you're at now, look to the tab to the left titled Documents, click on it and that's where you'll find either document for the product you seek. If you do not find the document you require, please email us at email@example.com so we can research further.
BULK ITEMS: When a customer adds a bulk item to the cart, the customer’s immediately shown on the screen how many number of days should be allowed for the bulk product to arrive at our warehouse. If the bulk item happens to be in stock, we’ll ship sooner than the customer would expect. As we emerge from Covid, logistics operations are not yet back to normal, what used to arrive at our warehouse in 3 days now takes much longer. Should a vendor inform us the ordered product will take longer than what’s mentioned on our website we’ll email the customer with the latest information.
EO = essential oil
FO = fragrance oil
HOW PRODUCTS ARE DISPENSED...
Essential oils: in 1/32 oz. to 1/4 oz...amber glass vials with orifice reducers. ½ oz. to 2 oz...in amber glass bottles with white caps and Eurodroppers...3 to 4 oz. in amber glass bottles with black caps and without orifice reducers...7 oz. in aluminum bottles...15 oz. in amber glass bottles with black caps...10 & 25 lbs. in HDPE plastic containers with wide mouths although, occasionally, 25 lbs. may be dispensed in factory-issued metal containers with pouring spouts.
28 lbs. of carrier oils and other liquids are dispensed in individual HDPE plastic gallon containers with handles, each holds the purchased net weight of liquid.
30+ lbs. of carrier oils, other liquids, soft butters, Castile gel and other products are dispensed in plastic HDPE pails w/metal handles & pouring spouts in the lid; those products may remain inside the pails indefinitely when properly stored. After Covid, we reserve the right to use any packaging/dispensing container available to us and not mentioned above because it continues to be difficult many times to restock the same packaging container or material used in the past.
NOTE: An EO may safely remain inside an aluminum container for up to 3 months, but if storing longer than 3 months the oil should be transferred to amber glass. Fragrances and carrier oils up to 8 lbs. may remain inside HDPE plastic bottles indefinitely. If the customer at any time feels more comfortable transferring a product to glass this should be done. ALL PRODUCTS ARE DISPENSED BY WEIGHT, THUS, SOME CONTAINERS MAY BE FILLED HIGHER THAN OTHERS DEPENDING ON THE WEIGHT AND VISCOSITY OF EACH PRODUCT.
Raw materials/ingredients are dispensed by weight. Many customers ask how many ounces in a pound, there are 16 ounces in one pound. These are not fluid ounces, they are ounces by weight.
HOW TO STORE: EOs, FOs and BUTTERS should be stored in tightly-sealed containers away from direct light and heat. Some EOs could be highly flammable, keep away from open flames. Keep all liquids and powders you purchase from Camden-Grey tightly capped and away from the reach of children, the elderly or infirm and pets. Refrigerating butters could adversely affect the consistency of the butter, please join our Forum if you need to learn how to handle, work with and store products.
