HISTORY

Labdassence was established in 2011 by professionals with a long track record in essential oils. Right from the start, our main goal has been to supply top-quality products to the market, always maintaining their natural properties.

We love our business and have been working for over 25 years with great enthusiasm and dedication. Our track record proves that we can select the highest quality essential oils and provide the best service to our customers from all five continents, who show their appreciation by relying on us and maintaining their loyalty, making us feel increasingly prouder of our work.

However, we do not just want excellent customer reviews. That is why we grow every day in the same way as they grow in meeting new goals.

We always remember to “spruce up” our team, who also provides innovative and up-to-the-minute ideas which are all the rage.

Labdassence provides a broad range of top-quality conventional and ecological essential oils, ecological vegetable oils and ecological massage oils. Our customers also enjoy a fast and flexible delivery service from Monday to Friday. Our Quality Control Department issues all types of certificates required for meeting specific evaluation standards. We also make these personalised certificates within a short period of time.

We have efficient stock management and prepare orders in record time. The time established for the orders to leave our facilities is 24-48 hours, with the highest quality assurance. After nearly ten years, we can now safely say that we have hardly had any rejections for quality reasons.

Obviously, we intend to continue this or improve this even more.

FACILITIES

Slider

Labdassence has grown exponentially in terms of its facilities, doubling the size of its laboratory, offices and warehouse by over 1,000 m², and in state-of-the-art technology at the Quality Control Department for the essential oils, including gas chromatography with mass spectrometry (GC-MS) and with flame ionization detector (GC-FID).

The new facilities have enabled us to considerably improve our service. We currently have our own complete infrastructure, with the following departments: Quality Control, Sales-Purchases, Financial and Warehouse.

The Warehouse Department has stainless steel tanks with capacities ranging from 200 litres to 5,000 litres. As a result, we standardise the batches and have a completely suitable storage area. The temperatures in our warehouse for both the

essential oils and vegetable oils never exceed 26ºC. Considering the geographical situation of our facilities, this speaks volumes for their quality. This also benefits our workers since they have a suitable work environment.Our intention is to continue investing to improve our facilities where our clear criterion and goal are to grow qualitatively and quantitatively. That is why we propose zero emissions and waste minimisation as much as possible. We also have projects underway which will help us meet our proposed targets, with distillation and cold pressing equipment which produces very high quality essential and vegetable oils with the specific parameters demanded by our customers. Lastly, we welcome our customers to visit us, which is what is happening at our quality control department.

QUALITY SYSTEM

labdassence has a Quality Control Department which analyses and verifies each batch of essential and vegetable oils in its portfolio. Controls are conducted on the conventional and ecological oils, which are 100% pure and natural.

The control starts with the crop itself. Our company follows the World Health Organization Guidelines on Good Agricultural and Collection Practices (GACP) for Medicinal Plants. We carry out year-round on-site monitoring of both the cultivated plants and crops in general as well as the wild plants.

Most aromatic plants have their own cultivation and harvest period. The harvest period tends to be the month in which the plant reaches full maturity and, therefore, its properties are usually at their best. There are other plants which are cultivated and harvested throughout the year. In this case, the aromatic plants are harvested when they have an appropriate size and optimal conditions for distillation.

The harvested aromatic plants are placed in stainless steel boilers located in the countryside and are subsequently steam distilled. In this way, we obtain the plant’s essential oil together with the distilled water. The two phases are immiscible since the essential oil remains on the top phase and the water on the bottom phase. Both phases are separated and the essential oil is stored in approved drums.

Our facilities in Gelves receive the various batches of essential oils from the countryside. We then collect representative samples of each batch received and take them to the Quality Control Department so that physical and chemical analyses are conducted. In this way, we verify whether the typical standards of each essential oil are met. Our requirements are established in line with the ISO/UNE and European Pharmacopoeia quality standards.

Before bottling the products for customer delivery, we filter and clean the essential oils. This is a fundamental step for removing any impurities from the countryside.

The vegetable oils are obtained from the first cold pressing of the fruits or oilseeds. They are all high quality ecological oils which have been tested and analysed to verify that they meet the quality parameters for using them both in food and cosmetics.

The ecological oils are backed by European Union and United States ecofriendly brands. Ecocert, the most prestigious certification body for ecological oils, is in charge of certifying all our company’s products.
