Essential oils are natural aromatic oils extracted from plant materials such as flowers, leaves, bark, roots and tree resins and have been used for centuries, therapeutically to treat the skin body and the mind.
Pure essential oils are purposely chosen for each Biology product for their specific therapeutic benefits for the Body and Mind, and blended to address specific skin and hair concerns.
Australian and organic essential oils are chosen (whenever possible), to provide a specific skin benefit, making the Biology products superior in product performance and results.
HOW DOES THE STEAM DISTILLATION PROCESS WORK?
The steam extraction method helps to release aromatic molecules from the plant material. The steam gently opens the pockets in which the oils are kept in the plant material. The molecules of these volatile oils escape from the plant material and evaporate into the steam, purifying the oil.
This superior method of extraction allows for continual temperature control of the steam applied to the plant materials, thus preventing degradation of the delicate botanical oils. Simply put you are left with a pure and active essential oil.
If you’re buying an essential oil which has used an alternate extraction method, you won’t be getting the same level of potency or quality.
