FLAVEX is specialised in CO2-extraction, a modern technology for production of lipophilic plant extracts. Supercritical CO2-extraction is very gentle and leaves no solvent residues. The method separates from plant materials bioactive substances such as antioxidants, natural flavours, essential oils and special fatty oils. CO2-extracts are used as cosmetics ingredients, in perfumes, food and food supplements and in aromatherapy. CO2-extracts are sterile and need no preservation.
FLAVEX Naturextrakte was established in 1986. As pioneer in CO2-extraction the company has profound knowledge in high pressure plant technology, phytochemistry and extract analysis. FLAVEX is DIN EN ISO 9001 and organic certified and a leading supplier of high grade CO2-extracts.
