The natural products made in a good environment with good mountains, good water and good ecology is an important indicator to measure whether such products are qualified products. Fortunately, our products come from Fujian, a province with excellent water, atmosphere and ecological environment.
Fujian has a subtropical monsoon climate, with warm winters and hot summers. Unique mountain-shaped landforms, peaks and mountains, rolling hills. River valleys and basins interspersed among them. Mountains and hills account for more than 80% of the total area of the province. It is known as the “eight mountains, one water and one field”. Fujian's “eight mountains and one water” created the first ecological environment in the country. In 2016, Fujian was the first national ecological civilization experimental zone in China. The forest coverage rate is 63.1% and this data is still rising year by year, and the ecological environment ranks first in the country.
Our plant extraction program purchases trees that have been replaced under the environmental protection program. Most of these materials are made of the branches and roots of pine trees. The main thing we collect in the refining process is turpentine, which is found in the roots and branches of pine trees.
Here is a brief introduction to the turpentine, which is located in the roots, stems and leaves. There are many small pipes in these areas, which are the cell gaps of the pine trees. These pipes are connected to form a complete piping system that crisscrossed the entire tree body, which botanists call the resin channel. The turpentine is surrounded by a special layer of secretory cells. The secretory cells secrete turpentine during the physiological metabolism of the pine tree and transport it to the pipeline for storage. When the pine tree is damaged, the rosin flows out of the pipe and closes the wound.
In terms of chemical composition, rosin is mainly a solution of solid resinous acid dissolved in terpenes. Rosin is colorless and transparent and contains up to 36% terpene when it is first released from the resin channels of pine tree trunks. After contact with air, terpene volatilizes quickly, resin acid crystallizes and resin resin itself gradually thickens into a honey-like semi-fluid. We collect the semi-fluid turpentine in a process, seal it immediately after collection, and then separate the oil immediately to extract the raw oil with phenols.
After collecting the pine oil, we will use aluminum products to store the raw materials, and then deeper processing and extraction of the product solubility and purity according to the customer's order requirements.
