“The Extractioneering team is a scientific company, with over 25 years of experience in the Industry. Fundamental understanding in plant biochemistry and the trials of plant extractions gave tremendous insight into achieving and then balancing oleoresin extracts. We surround ourselves with dedicated, professional and passionate enthusiasts. We aim to develop new standards of quality for products. Science is defined as the intellectual and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behavior of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment.
"Chemistry fits in as a science, but its goal is to simplify the complex. Chemistry is the core of science that deals with the identification of the substances of which matter is composed; the investigation of their properties and the ways in which they interact, combine, and change; and the use of these processes to form new substances.
Biology is the study of living organisms, divided into many specialized fields that cover their morphology, physiology, anatomy, behavior, origin, and distribution. Chemistry is substance identification and mathematics. Biology is elucidating the mysteries of evolved complex relationships. In the end, my passion was to solve the mysteries of the natural world, investigate how things worked in the physical world of organisms. If I could solve the mystery of how something worked, perhaps I could better understand the mysteries of how I worked.
Be part of our team,grow, collab, and enjoy." - Daniel M. Hayden PhD"
