Natural properties at the heart of Ennolys


What is a natural aromatic molecule?

An aromatic molecule is called natural when:

  • An identified molecule occurs naturally
  • A molecule is obtained by a natural process (physical, enzymatic or microbiological)
  • A molecule is produced from natural raw materials (plant, animal or microbiological).

The European Union and the FDA regulate and define this designation (1334/2008 EU & 101.22 (3) FDA Regulation).

How do you know if a molecule is natural?

Analytical tools exist and make it possible to differentiate a natural molecule from a molecule resulting from chemical synthesis:

  • Impurity analysis by GC-MS
  • Analysis of the rotatory power of the molecule
  • Chirality analysis of the molecule by GC-FID
  • The isotopic deviation analysis of carbon, oxygen and hydrogen

Our quality department monitors the isotopic ratios of our raw materials, finished products and finished products on the market.
