What is the entourage?

NATIVE EXTRACTS CEO, Lisa Carroll recognised a decade ago, the need to redefine the botanical extract industry, driven to offer a True to Nature, full plant profile of hydrophilic compounds suspended in their entourage – she created the new category Cellular Extraction, an innovation that protects the integrity of the natural molecules and move away from past processes of maceration, and wanting more than isolating and purifying individual compounds; driven by our beliefs that delivering the entourage held new breakthroughs.

NATIVE EXTRACTS began sharing new analytical information of plant profiles, some of which had never been seen before. We trademarked the image mark, Cellular Extraction, in 2014, and it has become recognised in the industry.

After 9 years of sharing our profiles, Cellular Extraction™ is well known, and is even sought after by leading universities wanting access to natural molecules in their entourage for research projects.
