Nutraceutical ingredients in extract form are oftentimes privileged as they adapt to food supplements galenic principles while offering high standards of active substances.
While developing an extract, we firstly see the potential of the plant and determine substances to be privileged. The raw material is selected for its contents of principle actives, then the process is optimised in order to obtain the best performance. It is possible to choose a wide spectrum of plant totum or closely target the specific active.
There are 3 decisive steps in manufacturing extracts:
Percolation: the compounds of interest are soluble in solvents (water or ethanol).
Evaporation: the extraction juice thus obtained is concentrated by eliminating solvents.
Formulation: the extract is thus dried or placed on a liquid support giving rise to the sought after galenic form (powder or liquid).
This extraction procedure is of course adjusted depending on the plant, the sought-after concentration and the planned application.
How does Natural Origins meet the needs for plants with these extracts?
For the last 2 decades, our teams have been painstakingly exploring all the richness of plants to select the most noble raw materials. Based on raw materials coming from all corners of the world and also from France, we constantly update our catalogue to offer the largest range of plants in an array of forms. We select the best partners based on our knowledge of the field and the producers to build an ideal supply chain for carrying out your botanical extracts.
