Mont Echo has recently moved into a new 5000 sq ft facility near our farms in the Eastern Townships of Québec. While the trees continue to sleep, we’ve already begun to prepare for the fruit that they will produce. This fruit, grown in the shadow of Mont Echo, will need to be transformed so we can collect and utilize these gifts from the trees. Our multi-vessel Supercritical CO2 extraction system, the largest in Québec for the extraction of natural products, is now safely stored in its new home, and I am very excited to once again fill it with the seeds and fruit that give us the 2 very distinct and very concentrated oils that give Mont Echo products their clinically proven efficacy (click to view clinical study!). With the ever increasing focus on source and traceability, Mont Echo continues to stand alone in North America by offering products made from 100% Canadian Grown Sea Buckthorn. I cannot wait to see what 2013 has in store for our farms and our products. Already, 2013 has seen the launch of our new haircare line (learn more!), and as our plants continue to sleep through our long Canadian winter, we are continually working to develop new products, always mindful of how it all ties together from plant to product.
