About Native Extracts

OUR WHY

NATIVE EXTRACTS is an Australian company leading the evolution of the plant extract through multiple scientific methodologies, new technology development and conscious manufacturing in pursuit to expand knowledge and access to analytic results on a botanical species’ natural phyto-compound profile, creating new access to natural molecules, exploring and saving botanical species and building partnerships that drive greater inclusion and participation for Indigenous and commercial growers in product development across multiple industry sectors – discovering True to Nature solutions to human problems.

Drawing on the brilliance of nature's design, our innovation in CELLULAR EXTRACTION harnesses and releases nature's evolved strategies to create and store powerful phyto-compounds within the cells of any botanical species. Discover the True to Nature 'blueprint' of natural molecules of any fruit, leaf, wood, flower and fungi; a new era of natural ingredients.

"Our vision was to develop a range that truly delivers the power of nature, and is unique, innovative, organic, marketable, eco-sustainable and supports community development and Indigenous enterprise – this is NATIVE EXTRACTS," says Lisa Carroll, Innovator and Director.

NATIVE EXTRACTS delivers a comprehensive phyto-compound profile of any botanical species, releasing the widest range of natural molecules in their synergistic relationships, as they exist in nature. CELLULAR EXTRACTION has redefined what can be achieved with a natural ingredient and its impact on formulation design.

NATIVE EXTRACTS is driven to break new ground in the botanical extract industry with new science, new research, a new palette for formulators, and the introduction of new botanical sources. We've developed a far superior extraction process that delivers phyto-compounds unachievable through traditional methods. We've engaged independent scientific government laboratories so you know exactly what's in them so you can research how they translate into new innovative products for the consumer markets that demand solutions from nature. We access untapped reservoirs of phyto-compounds from pristine mega-diverse ecosystems.

NOW the Botanical Extract industry leaves a past plagued with anecdotal misrepresentation, synthetic standardisation, limited scientific verification and destructive extraction processes that were unable to harness active natural molecules. NATIVE EXTRACTS promotes transparency and independent analysis, giving formulators the knowledge and tools vital to make informed decisions on why they choose an extract and how it will meet their target performance brief. NATIVE EXTRACTS has taken the botanical extract industry from "coloured water" and standardisation back to nature.

CELLULAR EXTRACTION

The NEW Science of Harnessing the Power of Nature

CELLULAR EXTRACTION works with gradients to transfer the natural water-soluble molecules of a species into a liquid extractant, delivering a True to Nature Plant Extract - the hydrophilic plant profile of phyto-compounds and their derivatives (the entourage) as they exist in the fruit, leaf, flower, wood, seed or fungi of a species.


SCIENCE INSPIRED BY NATURE | Plants move phyto-compounds by natural gradients. Mimicking this action, Cellular Extraction™ works with increased osmolarity (hypertonic conditions) by exposing plant material to a liquid extractant medium (carrier solvent) in a pressurised, air-less environment, disrupting the semi permeable membranes of the cells, moving the natural water-soluble molecules into the liquid medium matrix.



COLD PROCESS | CLOSED SYSTEM | HIGH PRESSURE | RAPID EXTRACTION

NATIVE EXTRACTS' innovation in extraction is a process that rapidly alternates static and dynamic stages within a closed system, creating an equilibrium between a plant cell and the liquid medium that simulates the cell environment. The extractant enters the cell wall to diffuse phyto-compounds, without stressing or degrading the plant's biomatrix, delivering the full plant profile of water-soluble or oil-soluble phyto-compounds, as they exist in nature – available for long periods of time.





Outdated extraction methods (maceration/percolation/powders/etc) place the plant under extreme stress that rapidly uses up the phyto-compounds and compromises their bonds, resulting in an extract of decomposing plant matter. NOW, phyto-compounds are easily transferred from their original cell environment to a medium ready to formulate. Bio-actives can now be derived from once-thought impervious sources. Our extraction process does not compromise the integrity of the fruit or plant, unlike the old methods of drawn out maceration or percolation, where the raw material is often left stewing for days, exposed to heat, fermenting and breaking down. CELLULAR EXTRACTIONS are clean, fresh and rapid. The process has revolutionised what we can derive from fruits and plants.





THE FIRST TRUE TO NATURE EXTRACT

In 2013, NATIVE EXTRACTS first publicly launched its range of Cellular Extracts that delivered new analytical results of a species' water-soluble plant profile – a range of phyto-compounds, their derivatives, and other phyto-nutrients suspended in a liquid matrix.

Nature doesn't create just a single compound. Species evolve through natural selection, becoming efficient at creating and storing multiple compounds in their synergistic relationships to sustain their survival and reproduction. A botanical extract should reflect the true blueprint of a plant. CELLULAR EXTRACTION delivers the first True to Nature full plant profile of phyto-compounds (and their derivatives) found in any fruit, leaf, wood or flower in a botanical extract; independently verified by government laboratory LCMS, guaranteeing their source and activity. Many Native Extracts are organic certified and reflect the multi-compound/multifunctional benefits of the most potent botanical species on the planet.

Since 2016, we have further evolved our processes and continue to revolutionise the botanical extract. We continually advance our knowledge in plant profiling and extraction technology, engineering our processes to take Cellular Extraction to new heights.



MULTIFUNCTIONAL : MORE OUT OF YOUR EXTRACT

One extract delivers the power of 3 – 10 phyto-compounds and their derivatives, the entourage. Multi-functionality creates new efficacy, formulation flexibility and potentially cost effectiveness. The next generation 'Super Extract' is multifunctional and naturally sophisticated.

Our extracts can stand on their own - they are pure, and unadulterated, without synthetic additives. 

◦ New possibilities and differentiation.

◦ Limitless unique sources from nature.

◦ New imagery and marketability.

◦ Create advanced 'natural' product lines with real stories and benefits.
