Quality

Products of impeccable quality


Aromatherapy as proposed by Pranarôm can only be practiced with products of constant and impeccable quality. Pranarôm carries out physical and chemical quality control. For each essential oil, physical tests such as refraction index analysis, optical rotation analysis, density measurement, flash point calculation, etc. are performed. Chemical testing also takes place: chromatography and mass spectrometry. The odor, color and texture are also judged according to a strict standard.

 

The quality procedure may be illustrated by a diagram :

The Pranarôm charter

For an ever stronger commitment to quality, Pranarôm International has adopted the following charter:


  • Priority is given to certified organic raw materials and, failing this, to wild plant matter harvested on untreated sites.
  • Double analysis of all batches of essential oils takes place in house and through an independent laboratory. These analyses are performed in compliance with the European pharmacopoeia, AFNOR standards and strict internal standards.
  • GM-free ingredients.
  • Traceability. There is a technical sheet and sample for every batch of essential oil, for every synergy of essential oils made at Pranarôm and for every one of the finished products (massage oils, shampoos, etc.).
  • Production takes place according to the procedure as specified by HACCP (Hazard Analysis of Critical Control Point) standards. These standards imply traceability and self-inspection of finished products (bacteriological control, chromatography etc.). 
  • Full compliance with good manufacturing practices (GMP) and good laboratory practices (BPL).

Pranarôm makes a commitment

To Sustainable Development : AROMABE

 

All around the world, Pranarôm works in close collaboration with growers and distillers of aromatic herbs. This proximity allows Pranarôm to monitor the quality of its essential oils from the plant to the bottle.

 

In the early 2000s, Pranarôm committed with farmers in Madagascar to develop with them a responsible agriculture of local herbs in order to promote a traditional distillation process that would respect both the environment and the industrial quality.

 

In 2009, Pranarôm initiated in Antsirabe an extensive local development project that provides a stable and fair employment to more than one hundred people while preserving the laboratory supplies of essential oils. This project is called AROMABE.

 

 

 

For a more sustainable development in Madagascar, Pranarôm invests in ecological plantation of organic ravintsara and other local plants.

 

Eco-friendly production methods are respected. On the island, Pranarôm also invests in the culture of endangered species like rosewood. 



In ORGANIC farming

 

Pranarôm supports organic farming as it is best for Nature. Whenever possible, Pranarôm formulates its products organic and complies with the demands of organic certification. Most Pranarôm products carry a certification label issued and recognized by Certisys Belgium.
