Delivering “true to nature” hydrophilic plant profiles. Cellular Extraction harnesses the species’ water-soluble blueprint of phyto-compounds and their derivatives (the entourage), in their synergistic relationships, as they exist in the cell. Extracted rapidly under high pressure, this unique process maintain the molecules’ natural integrity. Committed to conscious manufacturing, Cellular Extracts are created using purified, deionised, rain-harvested water and less plant material than past processes to produce a natural extract, that is eco-sustainable, traceable to source, transparent in composition – delivering the brilliance of nature.
