English name: Pomegranate oil
Botanical name: Punica Granatum
The top quality pomegranate oil is extracted by the Co2 extraction process in which a solvent, liquid carbon dioxide is used. For converting carbon dioxide into liquid, both low temperatures and high pressure is used. The result is a safe and effective solvent. Without any risk of heat degradation, the solvent can be collected safely. Carbon dioxide is then allowed to return to its natural and gaseous state to leave the extracted essence of the pomegranate seed behind. The two oils that can be obtained from this extraction method are Co2 totals and Co2 selects.
In the SCFE –Super Critical Fluid Extraction process, a solvent is utilized above its critical pressure and temperature. Quality of pomegranate oil extract can be improved this way. The extract does not contain any biological and microbial contaminants or residual solvent. The oil preserves synergistic bio-activity of molecules.
Pomegranate oil belongs to the Puniacaceae botanical family and has a botanical name Punica Granatum. The oil is derived from the pomegranate fruit seeds. Co2 extraction method is used in extracting the oil.
