Why is ‘cold pressed’ an important term when referring to cucumber toner?
It is possible to use a number of different methods in the process of extracting ingredients from natural sources – from olives to herbs to cucumbers.
With the focus on cost efficiency, meaning extracting as much as possible from the raw material, it is common for the material to be heated – this makes extraction both easier and faster, and it releases the grestest quantity of extracted material – this is ‘hot pressed’. Often in conjunction with heat, modern equipment is used such as a centrifuge, mechanical crushing and stamping of the raw material, or the application of high pressure/vacuum techniques to suck every last drop of extract from the material.
In yet other cases, chemicals are applied to the raw material to make it easier to extract the ingredients, and then at a later stage the chemicals are separated from the ingredients in a number of ways.
But all of these techniques carry risks or are the subject of criticism from parts of the scientific community. It’s believed by many that heat damages natural ingredients and lowers the potency and effectiveness of ingredients. Some people believe that the use of modern equipment to squeeze every possible drop of extract actually introduces unwelcome additional compounds or may damage the extract, and less agressive approaches are preferable. And there is a widespread belief that the use of chemicals to assist the process could expose the end user to unknown contamination or side effects.
Cold pressing, on the other hand, does not use heat and endanger the ingredients in that way – and hand extraction means that power equipment is not used and neither are chemicals or solvents employed. It’s the traditional way – but not as cost effective – however this is where manuifacturers make the choice between cost and quality.
An excellent example of how this process works in practice is in the olive oil industry. Lower cost, mass market olive oils are typically extracted using heat and other techniques – but it’s well known that the very best – and also most expensive – olive oils are extracted using cold pressing techniques.
