Natural Ingredients

From the sea to the trees, we offer natural compounds of the highest purity, extracted from animal & vegetal biomasses

Vegetal Extracts

The boreal forest that covers more than half of the Canadian territory, is host to over one hundred thousand species of plants, animals and organism, native to the Canadian ecosystem.

Essential oils and hydrosols from SiliCycle are manufactured in Saguenay-Lac-St-Jean, in the heart of Quebec’s boreal forest. With sustainable development as a priority, approximately two million hectares are exploited, offering a great diversity in wild plant species. This proximity to freshly harvested raw material allows superior categorisation and higher standard in quality of product.

Omega-3

Omega-3 fatty acids (also called ω-3 fatty acids or n-3 fatty acids) are polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs with a double bond at the third carbon atom from the end of the carbon chain. The three types of omega-3 fatty acids involved in human physiology are α-linolenic acid (ALA), found in plant oils, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), both commonly found in marine oils. Marine algae and phytoplankton are the primary sources of omega-3. Mammals are unable to synthesize omega-3, but can metabolized them by using the shorter chain omega-3 fatty acid ALA, from their diet, to manufacture longer chains omega-3 fatty acids like EPA and DHA.

SiliCycle offers a broad spectrum of essential fatty acids from different marine sources which can be standardized either on the total omega-3 content or any of the individual omega-3 fatty acid normally found in marine biomasses (mainly EPA, DHA and DPA). SiliCycle is mastering extraction and purification of omega-3 fatty acids achieving easily pharmaceutical grade standards (≈99% purity).
