- Our C60 -

Our vision is to deliver the highest quality and most natural products. This is achievable  in a country that is world renowned for its high quality products, standards and pristine environment.  We are passionate about natural health and doing business with integrity. We source the purest form of C60 possible; 99.99% made with no solvents. We source from and support New Zealand single grove olive groves that practice organic and bio dynamic processes. We process our product using only natural processes that protect and preserve the C60 in extra virgin olive oil, including packaging in special glass bottles that not only protect but enhance the final product.  Read below to find out more about Our C60 and research behind C60:

- C60 -

We source a pure form of C60; sublimed 99.99% C60 which is the highest purity of C60 available. The C60 is purified through a sublimation process which ensures there are no solvents in the C60 unlike C60 that is purified with solvents and vacuum baked to remove solvent residue.

 

- Olive Oil -

The olive oil in the landmark Baati study was a high quality virgin olive oil obtained from a Chemlali Bourghrara cultival in the Sahel area. The olive oil in of itself extended the lives of the rats significantly and protected their livers from the toxic chemical carbon tetrachloride which usually causes liver and kidney damage.  Unfortunately most of the “extra virgin olive oil” found in supermarkets is oxidized and rancid due to poor process practices in harvesting, transport and storage and in many cases mixed with inferior refined oils such as canola oil. We have gone through tremendous lengths to source a high quality virgin olive oil for our C60 product as the olive oil itself is the foundation of the health supporting properties of this product.

Pure New Zealand C60 is committed to supporting organic, spray free and bio-dynamic practices in the New Zealand olive oil industry. We only source from New Zealand groves and we incentivize sustainable farming by paying well above the price the farmers would receive from other bulk purchasers. By purchasing Pure New Zealand C60, you are supporting Kiwi farmers and keeping olive groves healthy and chemical free; just how nature intended.

The current batch is personally sourced from Dali, a local small scale New Zealand grove whose owners are committed to using sustainable organic farming practices without the use of any chemical pesticides or fungicidal sprays.  We are using one of the best olive oils available as the Dali grove is one of the top 25 olive groves in the world (see below).

The variety in the current batch is Picual and the lab report for this oil in our C60 product shows the polyphenol count at an incredible 719 (polyphenols are a naturally occurring antioxidant in extra virgin olive oils, the higher the better, usually it ranges between 100-300 in a high quality oil). The markers for oxidation and rancidity are very low with peroxide values at 6 (high quality oil range being 0-20). Please click on the certificate below to view certification in detail.

 - Our Process - 
  • Made in a certified food grade facility.

  • Made with certified organic extra virgin olive oil purchased directly from our supplier groves. We supply the grove with our own specially cleaned stainless steel containers and also supply them with inert gas when required for sealing each container without oxygen. We arrange and monitor all shipping ensuring the highest quality process are maintained throughout the 'food journey'.

  • Made with sublime 99.99% C60 which is created using a prolonged and time intensive, but natural non-toxic process, without any solvents. The C60 in the rat study was 99.98% C60 which is oven baked to get rid of toluene, a toxic solvent. Sublime C60 does not come into contact with toluene or any other toxic solvent.

  • No heating or ultrasonication used anywhere in the oil process

  • Our mixing process is long time frame with slow stirring, providing maximum saturation while protecting the natural properties of the Olive Oil (generally a 21 day mixing period).

  • We mix using a specially designed blade, using only stainless steel components (blade, shaft, mixing tank).

  • We mix in a temperature controlled room (optimum temperature for Olive Oil), in full darkness, and in an inert atmosphere to negate oxidation.

  • Saturation of .8 grams of C60 per liter of olive oil.

  • Bottled in violet MIRON bottles which are superior to any other types of bottles for protecting and enhancing our product.

 - Miron Glass - 

Miron violet glass works like a natural filter that only lets the sunlight that protects and improves the quality of premium and sensitive substances. Miron Violet glass blocks the complete spectrum of visible light with the exception of the violet part. At the same time it allows a certain part to be permeable for radiation in the spectral range of UV-A, and infra red light. This unique combination offers optimal protection against the ageing processes that are released by visible light, thus lengthening durability and potency of products.

- Research-

C60, or Buckminster fullerenes were discovered in 1985 by Richard Smalley, Robert Curl, James Heath, Sean O'Brien, and Harold Kroto at Rice University. It is basically charcoal, made from burning graphite tubes at very high temperatures. It is a unique form of carbon due to its spherical shape, hence the name fullerenes  or bucky balls after Buckminster Fuller, whose geodesic domes it resembles.  Since its discovery, C60  has since been used and tested for various purposes from industrial to medicinal. Overall it has been found that whatever C60 is added to, it enhances the qualities of that substance.  Thus when added to a high quality oil, such as authentic extra virgin olive oil, it enhances the already present properties. According to scientific research, for extra virgin olive oil these properties include anti inflammatory, antioxidant, cancer prevention, cardiovascular protection and anti bacterial properties.
