How is a dye obtained?
A mother tincture is a concentrated hydroalcoholic plant extract with a very high content of active ingredients
Dyes Biover are mainly (>70%) produced from fresh plants from controlled organic cultivation wherever possible. Depending on the moisture content and species, up to 750 g of fresh plants are used per litre of tincture.
A fresh plant releases its contents best when dissolved. However, the use of fresh plants is not always possible or desirable. The borage tincture, for example, is produced from dried 2-year-old bark.
The plants are finely chopped as soon as they are harvested and macerated in alcohol (= cold infusion) for at least 3 weeks. Alcohol is not only an ideal solvent for the extraction of the active ingredients, but it is also a technically pure product and an excellent preservative. By stirring the mixture daily, the dissolution of the active ingredients is stimulated.
After this period, the maceration is decanted and the plant residues are pressed so that only a compact mass remains, consisting mainly of cellulose. After filtration of the liquid phase, a clear solution with a minimum of 45% alcohol is obtained. The tincture is then analysed to check its conformity with the standards.
Dyes Biover are produced according to the prescriptions of a pharmacopoeia specifying, among other things, the part of the plant used (seed, leaf, flower, etc.) and the percentage of alcohol so that the preparation is always uniform
