- 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.

- 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.

 

According to scientific studies (links on bold text) C60 has the following effects:

 

 

 
 

- Olive Oil -

The olive oil in the landmark rat 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 will be the foundation of the health giving properties of this product.

We personally source olive oil from Stone River, 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. This years lab report for the oil in our C60 product shows the polyphenol count at 307 (an amazing antioxidant, the higher the better, usually it ranges between 50-500 in a high quality oil) and the markers for oxidation and rancidity very low with peroxide values at 3 (high quality oil range being 0-20).

From our growers:

​    "We have been certified organic growers, since 2005.

We are certified by OrganicFarm NZ, Certification No. 1411. As individual producers, we are audited annually.

    Our land lies on part of the old Waiohine River bed close to Greytown, with an extensive view of the Tararuas.

    We believe strongly in the importance of producing high quality organic produce at affordable prices.

    Our olive oils come from northern Italian cultivars. They are very high in antioxidants that are widely understood to contribute to good health."

   

 
 - 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.
