Teams & Tools

Using distillation columns, extraction plants and all the equipment needed to refine aromatic raw materials, Elixens' teams have the know-how and experience in fragrant creation.
Thus, the Elixens group has:

• several distillation columns to produce essential oils by steaming (continuous distillation) in Ukraine and the French Drome region,
• extraction plants to produce concretes,
• tanks for combining and blending to homogenise and prepare the orders,
• continuous filtration and centrifuge machines,
• distillation towers for the rectification and deterpenation process.

The quality of our productions is scrupulously ensured by laboratories equipped with high-tech tools: to measure physical properties (density, refraction index, rotary power), measure chemical properties (acid index, peroxide index, phenol concentration, aldehyde concentration, ester concentration), gas chromatography and mass spectrometry.

Our development team will guide you in choices and issues related to taste and scent and can provide advice in the use of aromatic raw materials. Thanks to the experience of our R & D, we offer different technical aids: examples of formulation sheets for different types of applications, both in the cosmetics and food industries; a brochure summarizing the cosmetic properties of plant extracts; sharp advice in the field of herbalism.
