Manufacturing process

Non-denaturing technologies


Water is the physiological medium of plants and the human body and is the extraction solvent used by SILAB since its creation. At the present time, 86% of SILAB’s active ingredients are offered in water and 14% in a green solvent.


SILAB employs technologies using natural agents (green chemistry, enzymatic hydrolysis and biopolymerization). With 35 years of experience, SILAB’s toolbox contains more than 40 enzymes whose perfectly controlled activities allow the specific extraction of the active molecules of interest.


In order to obtain active ingredients enriched in purified molecules, SILAB uses latest generation mechanical or physical purification tools.
