Olive oil extra virgin Ph. Eur.

Gustav Heess

The olives are grown by cooperatives in conventional agriculture.

For our pharmaceutical olive oil, we use almost exclusively olives of the variety Picual. The oil obtained from these olives is ideal for use in the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries. Due to its high polyphenol content, this oil is particularly stable.

After harvesting, the olives must be taken to the oil mill as soon as possible, as they must be processed in the oil mill within 24 hours after harvesting in order not to spoil. Once the olives arrive at the oil mill, the leaves are removed, and the olives are washed. After a further quality control, the olives arrive at the oil mill via a conveyor system. There a roller crushes the fruit into a pulp. The mash is kneaded in the Malaxer so that the fine oil droplets in the fruit flesh combine to form larger drops. The oil is then separated from the fruit water and the solid components by a centrifuge.

After pressing, the olive oil is safely protected from light and stored under nitrogen. All production steps and analyses comply with the requirements of the Pharmacopoeia Europaea (Ph. Eur.). The oil is analysed in our own laboratory accredited according to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025. This enables us to guarantee the high quality of our extra virgin olive oil Ph. Eur. over a long period of time.
