We are the only company known to strictly follow the original Baati / Paris method of Carbon 60 olive oil preparation, a strict process we have adhered to since our company was founded in 2012.
We start with top quality ingredients: research grade Carbon 60 from SES Research, which begins at 99.9+ % purity and is then vacuum oven dried to be completely solvent-free, and Kirkland brand organic extra virgin olive oil. After extensive study in olive oil quality, we found that small batch extra virgin olive oil is notoriously inconsistent, and that Kirkland brand is the best olive oil available with the most consistent quality.
To achieve maximum saturation (0.8 grams per liter / 0.8 mg per ml), we combine 5 grams of Carbon 60 per liter of organic extra virgin olive oil, as described in the Baati process. This is more than 6 times the amount of Carbon 60 than can possibly saturate the solution, however, this is the necessary ratio because not all of the Carbon 60 being mixed with olive oil will dissolve in a two week mixing time.
Many of our competitors cut corners by using an industrial grade Carbon 60 (a lower level of purity that also contains dangerous solvents), and/or simply putting in 0.8 or 0.9 grams of Carbon 60 per liter of olive oil, which always results in an inferior product. Some companies are even boiling their olive oil to try to dissolve the carbon faster or get away with using less. This destroys the polyphenols in the olive oil, and results in a damaged, black oil.
We mix our 5 grams of Carbon 60 per liter of olive oil for two weeks using specialized equipment that ensures full suspension of Carbon 60 particles during the entire mixing operation. The mixing occurs in complete darkness, in temperature controlled conditions, to avoid Carbon 60 degradation from light or heat.
Upon completion of this two week mixing period, our fully saturated Carbon 60 solution is centrifuged at 5,000 g for one hour to remove the undissolved Carbon 60. This clarified solution is then sterile filtered through a 0.22 micron filter.
We then bottle our solution in dark amber glass bottles, and quickly package for delivery to you. Our packaging is designed to be extremely robust to prevent breakage, and conforms to international standards for shipping liquids in glass containers. Each shrink-sealed bottle is enclosed in a 6 mil heavy zip-lock bag, and packed along with an applicator in an individual cardboard box, independent of the final packaging used for mailing. We have not experienced a single broken bottle delivery since adopting our current shipping system in 2013.
We are the only company proven to consistently provide a fully saturated, 0.8 mg per ml Carbon 60 olive oil solution. Don’t settle for the slightly less expensive, vastly inferior products available from our competitors. Insist on fully saturated Carbon 60 olive oil solution from the only company that has been doing it right from the beginning!
