Natural Complex Substances
As the 2018 REACH registration deadline is coming closer, also Natural Complex Substances (NCS), mainly falling in the 1-10 or 10-100 tonnage band, are spotlighted.
The most common NCS are:
- Essential oils
- Concretes and absolutes
- Oleoresins and Resinoids
- CO2 extracts
- Infusions and alcoholic extracts
Being botanical products, there are natural variations in the chemical compositions of NCS obtained from one unique genus and species. This is a consequence of:
- the region of growth
- the annual variations in climte within the region
- the part of the plant as source material
The methodologies for processing will also affect variations in chemical composition: drying, cutting, expression, extraction, distillation, fractionation, concentration, precipitation, etc.

If you have not pre-registered your substance yet, late pre-registration may still be an option until 31 May 2017.
