CO2 Extracts – The How, What, Where, When and Why in Aromatic Therapies
2-day Certificate (CPD Seminar) with Mark Webb
Aromatics produced via Carbon Dioxide Extraction (CO2 Extracts) have been around and in use for the past 15-20 years. While some, like German Chamomile and Calendula have become commonplace within the aromatherapy world, there are still many CO2 Extracts with little to no information available.

He will compare and contrast a range of volatile and non-volatile, Select and Total CO2 Extracts with their essential and fixed oil counterparts, discussing safe and effective usage within topical and internal formulations.
Mark has over a decade of experience formulating with CO2 extracts. Making him well placed to discuss their uses within the fields of cosmeceutical and aromatic therapies applications. His knowledge about how to incorporate these extracts in food and beverages for both therapeutic and non-therapeutic use enables him to provide a broad range of practical and day to day examples. If you have been curious about using CO2 Extracts, this is the workshop to answer your questions.
